For the past 15 years, I was overweight and unmotivated.  As a working mother and wife, I took care of everything…the house, the kids, the husband and work.  I tried numerous ways to lose weight, but was never successful...

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...

You've heard it said before: Thoughts are things. The impact of our mental and emotional selves on our physical selves cannot be overestimated. Thoughts and feelings have a direct physiological impact on our bodies.  Here’s a quick example:  think about an ice-cold, tart cherry.  See it in your mind’s eye, and imagine the chill in your fingertips from grasping it...

 

Editor's Note: I can't tell you how many times I've worked with clients who think their body is their only problem. They'll tell me, "If only I could be skinny, then I will be happy, then I will be good enough." This kind of talk makes me want to scream, 'Nonsense!' In veteran Fitness Trainer Tina Vindum's own words, "becoming emotionally fit can be as liberating and health-promoting as physical fitness."

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: Check out Baby Liv! This little baby has something to teach us about the way the human body moves and progresses. Sometimes as a fitness professional I have to remember to take all of the great information in my head and simplify it. Thank you, Baby Liv for showing me how to do that!

It's that time of year. Everyone wants to turn over a new leaf. Many people are starting new workouts or joining new classes or even starting with a trainer. Media tells us the majority of you are going to fall off the workout and health wagon by the end of the month, if you haven't already. I want to prove them wrong so I am going to give you one really great tip...

 

Editor´s Note from Rachel Webster: I am as guilty as anyone else at avoiding things I am not good at. I didn't play team sports in high school because I wasn't good at it. I tend to get involved in things I am naturally good at. It's human nature, I think. When it comes to exercise, though, if you want to see some changes or improvements, you need to get uncomfortable. You have to give yourself permission to be bad at it. I wish I understood this one concept as a kid. I would have tried more things. I hope this article helps you stay motivated to keep at your workout even if you think you are bad at it.

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: Disguised by imported African slaves as a dance, Capoeira originated in Brazil and incorporates the fun, musical, active character of Brazilian culture. Now practiced all over the world by men and women alike, Capoeira teaches discipline, musical instruments, coordination, and most important, the joy of belonging to a Capoeira family.

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: Have you ever tried The Zone? What about Atkin's? How about HCG? What about that girl who did HGH, she lost weight didn't she? Does any of this sound familiar? I hope this video will help you laugh at how neurotic we can become about being on the 'right' diet, or using the latest and greatest infomercial exercise tool or DVD to reach that 'perfect' number on the scale.

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Psychologists state that for various reasons our society is getting increasingly angry. There are many methods to healthily release and transform this toxic emotion. Fitness expert, John Basedow, shares how exercise helped him with anger management in ways other than just feeling the rush of endorphins, our body’s natural feel-good chemicals.

Recycling gift bags is a tradition in my family. We’re talking down to the nametags.

Each year, after our loved ones pluck new treasures out of slightly rumpled sacks that may or may not still have torn tissue paper inside to disguise their contents, they are returned to the original gift givers to use again next year...

 

Editor´s Note: Quick and simple read, Jen reminds us that just because we have always done something a certain way doesn't mean that it works. It reminds me of how often I have a new client look at me like I am insane when I tell them that they need to change something that they have held to be true and necessary for so many years that it has been ingrained in them. People often need a reminder that if they want to see change, something needs to change. Want to stay the same? Keep with tradition.

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...
