Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: This video is from ATH former Co-Editor, Melanie Webb, with the following note: “I stumbled upon this inspirational short video and it changed the outlook of my entire week. If you’re like me and seek to ever improve your own happiness, fitness levels, and athletic abilities I think you’ll relate to the words of athlete, Jan Eric Euler, ‘Freedom is the absence of negative feelings. We find happiness in sports, fulfillment in being outdoors.’”

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Arthur Rosenfeld

Folks have been asking lately why they continue to catch cold or come down with a flu now and then even when they're really doing their best to live properly. They watch their diet, get plenty of sleep and exercise regularly, monitor their stress levels, try not to worry too much, even practice meditation or a mind/body discipline. Some may imagine, I suppose, that the human's natural state of being is eternal optimal health...


Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Sometimes I think I shouldn't get sick or become injured if I do everything right and try to live in a healthy way....and if I do become sick or injured, what did I do wrong? Arthur's article is a wonderful reminder that life is plastic and in a continual flow. It's the overall quality of life that living in a healthy way provides that gives the joy in living.

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Mariel Hemingway

For me to be alive and happy I have had to organize my life differently. I had to find time where I would otherwise have been stressing over plans undone or future desires unmet. I have moved into a space where how I wake up becomes the template for a day well lived. I awaken with the sun most days if I have gone to bed early enough the night before...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: It is so easy to get up in the morning and just start on our to-do list without taking notice of the gift of just being able to wake up in the first place. I love Mariel’s way of being in the moment of waking up, and being present in those first moments of the day, aware that what she does sets the tone for the rest of the day.

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Meet Robert, a great grandfather from Louisville, Kentucky, who started working out when he was 55 years old. Goes to show it’s never too late.

Editor's Note: Have you ever tried a new exercise class without having the slightest clue of what to expect? Nia was that for me. I was a few minutes late and missed the introduction, so my only instructions from the teacher were spoken through his mobile mic as he danced and spoke, "Body, give me a sensation now." I leave this with you as you discover for yourself the beauty of Nia.

Excellent physical condition is not equivalent to good health. Arnold Schwarzenegger needed to have a heart valve replaced.  Jean-Claude Van Damme, a famous martial arts actor, suffers from a hearing loss.

Chronic training for and competing in extreme endurance events such as marathons, ultra marathons, ironman distance triathlons, and very long distance bicycle races...

The last decade has seen an explosion in DVD exercise programs. Everything from yoga to cardio to dancing to kickboxing to muscle-building and single discs to complete 30, 60, and 90-day programs. DVD-based programs can be a quick and easy way to get in a good workout, or they can be a life-changing experience. All you have to do is follow along, right? Yes and no. Before you buy into the latest craze, ask yourself a few questions...

Editor´s Note: People love to know how celebrities get their incredible bodies. I often cringe at the information I hear coming from "celebrity" trainers. Ashley here is the real deal. This is a super effective workout for your core. It is excellent that Ashley doesn't leave out important preparation work. Without the proper prep work, exercise can be less effective, not effective at all, or worse, cause injury and pain. The prep work allows you to connect with how your body feels and creates a much better workout all together. Enjoy the workout!

Permanent weight loss is certainly possible. Each one of you knows someone who has accomplished a long-term goal and maintained significant weight loss for 5, 10, 15 years or more. You can be a success story, too, simply by using some of these simple techniques...

by Rachel Webster,
ATH Asst. Editor of Exercise & Fitness

I recently had a conversation with someone about eating to fit in. More specifically being bullied about eating differently than everyone else. This one sparked a little something in me because its incredibly common and I think it's a big part of why people are unsuccessful when they try to make positive changes in their lives. It happens in our own homes...

 

Editor´s Note: Ever dread having meals with other people because you always tend to be swayed into eating something you later beat yourself up about? Does someone you know try and sabotage your healthy eating efforts? Time to nip that in the bud. Here's what you can do. The next time someone refers to you as a health nut in a derogatory way, take it as a compliment and remember this quote: "Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect." Mark Twain. Rememeber, the majority aren't getting it right when it comes to nutrition.

Fat fingers are the price you pay for enjoying a walk in warmer weather. Wise walkers remove their rings before going on a longer walk. Otherwise, you may feel like they have turned into tourniquets. When you exercise, you are pumping more blood around your body...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: I have yet to come across an article - until now - about the less than pleasant aspects of walking....things that can happen. If you can relate to any of these, know that you are not alone.

I am currently training for the Run Like Hell 1/2 Marathon in Portland Oregon and the Disney Full Marathon. Today's run was a 9.5 mile run. I had been asked by friends to go out dancing last night. As much as I wanted to, I knew I wouldn't be at my absolute best, or that I wouldn't make the run in the first place if I went out. I stayed home, hydrated, and went to bed early...

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...
