Have you ever wondered what it means to love yourself? Love is an acronym for Living On Vital Energy. When you tap into your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual energy resources, you are truly loving yourself and can live from a place of harmony and joy...

Exercise & Fitness


by Kathy Smith

It’s an exciting time here in Park City. My love of the outdoors is one of the many reasons I’m devoted to strength training. That’s why I’ve always said: “There’s no fountain of youth.” But strength training is the closest thing we’ve got. It gives you the energy and, well, the strength to enjoy life and all the gifts it has to offer...

Editor´s Note from Rachel Webster: If you have never heard of the Valslide, here is your first official introduction to one of the most amazing pieces of exercise equipment ever. Sure you can use paper plates or furniture sliders, but, I assure you, there is no comparison. I use these with all of my clients at all fitness levels.

This is an awesome ab circuit. Enjoy!

Though I’m not crazy about the term, we’ve all heard of “cankles,” the unfortunate nickname for a woman’s ankle area when it lacks a certain desired shape. But recently I stumbled across an article discussing another body concern, something they dubbed “kninkles,” or above-the-knee wrinkles – and the sagging knee fat that accompanies it...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: I’ve always advised clients to do compound movements or multi-faceted movements for more effective and efficient results. For a limited time, All Things Healing readers can get Kathy’s Matrix Method DVD, showcasing her matrix of using the face of a clock, at a special price.

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Nicole Schmidt

I’ve been running for as long as I can remember. As a child, I ran with our horses in their pasture. In high school, I ran to chase teenage loneliness. In college, I ran to prevent beer and pizza from monopolizing my middle. As a carefree tourist in my twenties, I ran to see the world, best observed on foot. As a Middle Eastern Diplomat in my thirties, I ran to protect myself in danger zones...

 

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: Nicole and I connected online over our shared understanding that exercise improves brain function. But we became friends over a hike in the Mojave Desert while Nicole was in Utah training to run two 50k endurance races. It was then that I learned about her work to raise money for brain damaged children through her non-profit The Baby Alex Foundation.

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: So you still think you don’t have time to exercise? Renowned body transformation expert, Stephen Cabral, takes Diet.com’s host, Sara,  through a 4-minute workout, originally created by a Japanese scientist who wanted to increase aerobic capacity plus increase metabolism up to 36 hours post-workout. This interval program of 20 seconds on with 10 seconds rest for a total of 4 minutes is best for someone who has already been exercising on a regular basis. If you are a beginning exerciser and want to try it, ease into the workout by reversing the intervals, doing 10 seconds on with 20 seconds rest.

People ask me about trimming down their inner thighs almost as much as they ask about losing the “muffin top,” whether or not it’s okay to eat carbs, and the true meaning of life.  Truth is, there are easy things you can do to really firm up your thighs. When you combine this toning with a killer butt workout routine, you can start loving your lower body like never before...

Food, like movement is a complicated issue. I hope that by this point in your internet-reading career you understand the difference — at least in principle — between whole food and junk food. Fresh, organic, unprocessed foods are now recognized in many circles as superior to their preserved, extended shelf-life, highly processed counterpart...

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: There's a transformative energy about loss and defeat that can be used to fuel our motivation to get up and keep moving. Maybe you didn't make it to the gym or on that morning walk yesterday. Maybe you pigged out on ice cream. Perhaps you got fired standing up for something you knew was right. Whatever it was, it's in the past. But you can take that hurt and disappointment and channel it into this moment, this workout, this game, whatever the situation may be. Come back untouchable.

We can take a hint from successful race car drivers and their amazing pit crews by creating our own wellness pit crew, aka health team. Body, soul and spirit mechanics who help us stay sharp with their knowledge, expertise and insight. Staying on track takes a village - a team of people you trust. Nothing can take the place of intuitive guidance, but these people can serve as answers to your intuitive guidance...

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Jena la Flamme 

For years upon years, when my struggle with food and weight felt like a heavy burden, and a constant reminder of my deficiency as a person, the idea of truly appreciating my desires was never something that crossed my mind. Then came the words that changed everything... "The absence of appetite is the absence of life itself," the book said. "In order to get what you want, you must be able to recognize and celebrate your appetite." The words stopped me in my tracks...

With months of warm weather and sunny days ahead, there is no better time to develop a running habit. If you have never run a step, or have been away from your trainers for a few too many seasons, have no fear. Getting to know, and love, running is a simple matter of making a plan, suiting up, and putting one foot in front of the other. To make it even easier, I’ve included a sample plan for a ten week progression. Follow this to go from 0-30 (minutes!)...

The Secret to Eating Carbs

by Kathy Smith

When you munch on a muffin or take a swig of Gatorade, here’s what happens to the carbs that you just put in your mouth; they’re converted into glucose, which is essentially the body’s energy. The problem is that there’s only so much glucose that you actually need. The rest is converted into glycogen and stored in the liver and in your muscles. When glycogen storage reaches full capacity, all the extra carbs are converted into fat...
