Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: If you're obsessed by your scale, give it away! Muscle weighs more than fat. The purpose of posting this photo is to show that it's not the numbers on the scale that's important, but the ratio of muscle to fat. The goal is not to look like the woman who is a size 2. The goal is to drop the excess fat for your height and build. Scales are not a bad thing. They can be a big help in the process of getting healthy, but if you're basing your results solely on what those numbers are, you can see how misleading that can be.

Summer is all about relaxing, recharging, rejuvenating… and sometimes it’s about hitting the “reset” button on our bodies. In the midst of vacations, celebrations and fun with family and friends, it’s easy to lose track of the goals we set last spring to lose fat and get into shape. So, when you need to jump back on track quickly, here’s the key to hitting that reset button...

If you have never been for a walk or run outside and had a mosquito repeatedly bounce off your body, begging for a bite, than you are one of the lucky folks because most people who step outside to sweat it out have noticed those little bugs are keen to the smell of their workout...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: As if summer heat and humidity aren’t enough, here in Florida we are entering in to our rainy season, which also brings out those pesky little mosquitoes and no-seeums, providing double trouble for exercisers. Seems mosquitoes can find you easier when you exercise. No matter where you are in the world, when rainy season hits, here are a few suggestions to get those buggers to leave you alone. This fit tip is courtesy of First30Days.

Health is obviously so much more than a disease-free state of being.  To be healthy is to have a body toned to its maximum performance potential, a clear mind exploding with curiosity, and a happy spirit.  In the 6 years I have worked in the fitness industry, the people most successful at managing their wellness and a busy life have spent the time to research, plan, and practice a healthy lifestyle...

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: The long days of summer are upon us. But if you're like me, they snuck up fast! I'm spending a lot of time guiding stand up paddling at Lake Powell, Utah. I'm practically living in my bikini, and that means I want tight, lean legs! I was pleased to find this short exercise video for sculpting mean lean paddling machines.

Like medicine, exercise can have its negative side effects. I know! Hard to believe that something we’re doing for our health has aspects that are physically detrimental, but, the fact remains that, just like pharmaceuticals, there’s a trade-off you have to deal with whether you like it or not...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Repetitive motion injuries can occur in ways other than playing tennis, computer work, or playing golf. Biking, treadmill walking, and abdominal exercises can all contribute to repetitive motion injuries. If you tend to exercise the same way most of the time and have developed pain that medical professionals can’t locate the source, but have ruled out anything serious, read Katy’s article...

You may have noticed that “Boot Camp” Workouts are all the rage right now, both at larger gyms and private fitness facilities. The term “boot camp” might bring up some pretty intimidating images: An angry drill sergeant barking out orders like “Drop and give me 50!” And for some types of boot camp training, that’s not so far from reality...

In her book The Power Is Within You, Louise L. Hay wrote that “the point of power is always in the present moment.” To make the most of the present moment, a healthy lifestyle is an integral component of your journey toward well-being and wholeness...

 

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Dr. Weissman has created a technique called "The LifeLine Technique" that "bridges the gap between the conscious and subconscious mind." In this article, he introduces you to what he considers the Five Basics for Optimal Health: the quantity, quality, and frequency of water; food; rest; exercise; and owning your power.

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Doing the same workout over and over can leave us in a mental and physical rut. If you’re looking for something to shake things up a bit, fitness expert, Andrea Metcalf, has some suggestions. While two of her suggestions, Zumba and Yoga, may seem passé, the rest may surprise you. And the two standard suggestions she gives? Many people still don’t know about the Zumba craze… hard to believe I know. And, when polled, most people think of yoga in the popular hatha tradition, but there are many styles of yoga to choose from. If you’re looking for a different yoga style, this article can lead the way.

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...
