Exercise & Fitness


by Tina Vindum

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."

Exercise & Fitness


by Wendy Bumgardner

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.

If you ask most people what’s the best pre- or post-workout meal or snack, they’ll probably mention sports drinks, protein powders, protein bars, and anything but plain old food...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: I have to admit it is so easy to reach for a protein bar before or after a workout, but these suggestions from Valerie remind me what eating real food does for my body's recovery, not to mention the anti-aging benefits.
