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.

Perhaps you’ve heard someone say something like, "I love exercise! It’s my passion, the highlight of my day, and I look forward to it!" Perhaps you’ve found that person to be incredibly annoying. Perhaps you’ve even found yourself thinking, "Am I missing something here? Because I do NOT love exercise..."

Interviewed by Bess Coble,
ATH Co-Editor of Exercise & Fitness

Valerie Latona

"The most important thing I learned is that we are all so similar in our efforts to be healthy and fit. While we may feel alone in our struggles—be it a weight concern, an “I’m-flabby-and-so-out-of-shape” feeling, a bad habit we’re trying to break, you name it—this isn’t the case at all. We all want to be the best that we can be, but life gets in the way..."

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: I’m very happy to introduce Valerie Latona as our new Guest Editor. I’ve read Shape Magazine for years, all the way through the recent time when Valerie was Editor in Chief. Her impressive and knowledgeable background will give all of us expanded insight in how to live a healthy and vital life at any age. It’s been an honor to get to know Valerie a little more over the last few months. I’m also happy that Kathy Smith will, very much, still be a presence with us in the Featured Article section.

Dear Readers,

It’s been one year since I joined the All Things Healing community as Assistant Editor of Exercise & Fitness. As with all endeavors, the time has come for me to say so long and move on to my next challenge...

 

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: After one year in my post as Assistant Editor of Exercise & Fitness, it's time to move on to other opportunities. I leave you with one last reflection of reflection and gratitude. Namaste.

Bess Coble, ATH Co-Editor of Exercise and Fitness

A friend, who is a former Co-Editor of Sacred Living, introduced me to All Things Healing. They were looking for a Co-Editor for Exercise and Fitness. I checked out the site and their passion – healing body, soul, spirit and planet - resonated with me...

 

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: How much do you know about Bess Coble, the woman who for several years now has graced our Exercise & Fitness page with rich content to educate, encourage, and inspire you? After working with Bess here at ATH for the past year, I thought I knew what makes her tick. But now that I know her history and all that she as overcome, I've gained an even greater appreciation for her enthusiasm for life, her dedication to health and healing, and the person I now call not only colleague, but friend. I hope you enjoy getting to meet the person behind the content, Editor of Exercise & Fitness, Bess Coble.

Sure, it’s Valentine’s Day. My older kids, 8 and 5, are all excited as they prepare to hand out fun Valentines to their classmates—and of course, celebrate with parties at school. Restaurants are booked with couples’ reservations—and candies, flowers, and hearts are just about everywhere you look...

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: By now you know I love a good inspirational video to inspire me to keep fighting to reach my goals. Nike nailed it with this one. "I just want to be me;" Isn't that what's most important? Ignore the celebrities, forget the fad diets, stop buying what they're trying to sell you. Dig deeper. Get out there and be you. As Nike would say, Just Do It!

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

It's that time of year. Everyone wants to turn over a new leaf. Many people are starting new workouts or joining new classes or even starting with a trainer. Media tells us the majority of you are going to fall off the workout and health wagon by the end of the month, if you haven't already. I want to prove them wrong so I am going to give you one really great tip...

 

Editor´s Note from Rachel Webster: I am as guilty as anyone else at avoiding things I am not good at. I didn't play team sports in high school because I wasn't good at it. I tend to get involved in things I am naturally good at. It's human nature, I think. When it comes to exercise, though, if you want to see some changes or improvements, you need to get uncomfortable. You have to give yourself permission to be bad at it. I wish I understood this one concept as a kid. I would have tried more things. I hope this article helps you stay motivated to keep at your workout even if you think you are bad at it.

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: It's predicted that by the year 2050 one in three Americans will be diagnosed with diabetes. If you think the impacts of this disease won't personally affect you - think again! Please, do what you can to help your friends, family, and community steer clear of diabetes. Superstar NBA basketball player Shaquille O'neal speaks here about his work to help prevent diabetes with CNN correspondent Sanjay Gupta.

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: Swimming can be a great way to add variety to your indoor cardio program during the cold winter months. People who suffer from arthritis can also benefit from the low-impact exercise. Here ACE shares an idea for a swimming workout. Don't worry if you're like me and aren't a great swimmer, just do what you can do and have fun!

Oversized sweaters, “relaxed fit” jeans, and bulky coats: cold weather allows numerous ways to disguise those extra few pounds from holiday get-togethers, Starbucks hot chocolate detours, and endless comfort food...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: JJ Virgin is an icon in the Exercise and Fitness field and it is with great pleasure that we present the first in a series of articles by her.

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

I’m not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but, whenever I am at a gathering of family or friends, I get introduced as a the “trainer.” Once people know I am the “trainer” I feel like I turn into a priest taking confessions. I can’t seem to go to any gathering involving food without someone commenting on how they shouldn’t eat this while they go ahead and eat it anyhow...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: I’m excited to introduce our new Assistant Editor, Rachel Webster, who will be coming on board in January. Her philosophy, Building Fit Females from the Inside Out, is a great addition to the Exercise and Fitness page. Check out her website where you can sign up to receive her free ebook, “Fitness Freedom: Seven Steps to Becoming the Fit Female in The Room.”

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...
