Whether you stretch before or after exercise, make sure your muscles are warmed up first.

Should I stretch before or after I exercise? Should I even bother to stretch at all? These are the questions that every busy person asks before starting an exercise program. The correct answer to the first question is “do whatever is right for you”...

 

Editor’s Note: This article on stretching is from a chiropractor whom I really respect.

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble:  Zumba has become so popular that an estimated 12,000,000 enthusiasts are enrolled in classes and many more participate at home or in private group settings. Because of its popularity, the company has developed off-shoot programs for varying fitness levels, experience and age. Known as the Zumba “pool party,” Aqua Zumba is one of the newest programs.

When I think of summer during my growing up years in London, I remember long days playing endless games. The 2012 Summer Olympics exhibited all the pomp and circumstance of a Danny Boyle production.

For me it's not the obvious stories that grabbed my interest, but the unlikely heroes who burst onto the world stage having seemingly overcome incredible adversity along the way who truly inspire me...

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...

I sat in a high security, whitewashed laboratory in the Nation’s Capitol with my arm over a jar of infectious disease-carrying mosquitoes, willingly donating my body for the greater good of society. At the time I was a poor graduate student studying exercise science, nutrition, and eating behavior with dreams of hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro that summer. How a graduate student could afford a trip to Africa I did not know. I had to get creative...

Years ago, I overheard one of my daughter’s friends complaining about her mom being on a “menopause roller coaster,” and then groaning: “We can’t take her anywhere!” Granted, menopause does crazy things to your moods, but it’s important not to let this be a license to be a shrew. If you use menopause to excuse bad behavior, it can undermine your self-respect and damage your relationships...

If you could stop, you would.

 

If you could stop smoking right now, you probably would. If you could stop eating from the vending machine at work, you probably would...

 

Editor´s Note: Sometimes letting go of a habit that we have been attached to for a long time is much too overwhelming. Dave keeps it simple. How about crowding it out of your life instead?

Many people find it more comfortable, convenient, and affordable to log their exercise time in the privacy of their own house. You certainly don't need a gym filled with fancy equipment and trainers to get in great shape and shed unwanted pounds. For example, I believe that nothing beats a brisk walk outdoors around your neighborhood. Exercising indoors at home is also quite easy, with all the heart-pumping workout DVDs and affordable fitness equipment out there...

Health-conscious walkers may not want to grab a highly-processed energy bar or convenience food to fuel their workout. Registered dietitian Jovana Turkovic of Studeo55 has compiled a list of readily-available super foods that are nutrient-dense and naturally packed with antioxidants. I asked her about how to use these for powering their brisk walking workouts...

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...
