Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: Any cyclists out there? Whether your groove is an indoor spin class with your favorite instructor and killer music; on Utah's spectacular slick rock; or out on the roads in California wine country like me this weekend (I know, life is rough), most of us want to know how to get more power out of our peddle stroke. Here's an interesting analysis of what phase of the stroke each muscle is most active.

There are so many different character types it is difficult to always have the right answer for every person's problem. Analysts have lengthy explanations, lists of possible disorders, and all sorts of theories as to why every individual develops into the person he or she becomes. These mental designations explain to the educated mind why a person is good, bad, overweight, skinny, or has any number of other flaws or strengths...

"You do NOT have to run to lose weight and keep it off!" I scolded. "You know I never ran a lick to shed 130 pounds – it ain't that hard! I walked it all off - along with cutting white starch and sugar from my diet. I race walked, fitness walked, and walked the dogs everyday, instead. But run?...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Laura writes about a humorous conversation she had with a friend on who does the best form of cardio. In the end, however, neither had convinced the other that theirs was the best. What they did agree on was the importance of daily movement.

Also, during particularly stressful times, you may eat in an attempt to fulfill emotional needs, which is sometimes called stress eating.

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Wendy Ida has a remarkable story and here she talks about her journey toward self-acceptance and physical well-being. This is the first video in the Strive to Thrive series on Wendy. We will include Part 2 of Wendy’s story when it becomes available.

At age 43, Wendy Ida was 80 pounds overweight; by age 56 she was taking home the top prize in a body building competition. For Wendy and the three other experts featured in "Strive To Thrive," an original video series produced by Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker, the difference between accepting the status quo and being transformed hinges on one thing: taking the first step.

When I think of climbing I think of silence, peace and challenge. I have not climbed for long… a little over a year, but I have been hiking and loving nature all of my life. My love of the outdoors never ceases to grow in intensity. Nature gives me what people cannot… truth, honesty and unconditional love. It guides with the power of temperature, smell, tastes and sensations that thrill me in and out...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Mountain climbing is an exciting activity to many people because of its physical and psychological benefits. For many climbers, it also becomes a social activity or a meditative experience. Mariel shares how climbing has inspired her and enhanced how she relates to the world around her.
