If you've discounted Pilates as a passing fitness fad, think again! This resistance exercise has been popular for some time and for good reason. Pilates builds strength, balance, and flexibility, which carry over into every activity and movement you do during the day...

Exercise & Fitness


by Liz Stubbs

In the past two years, I have had the privilege of offering help and comfort to family members who have had to undergo surgeries and hospital stays for serious illnesses and medical conditions. All of us can relate to how scary it is to watch a loved one struggle with physical pain and illness or to be challenged ourselves with health issues...

Exercise & Fitness

There’s no doubt about it… our culture and media place way too much importance on being thin. Sure, it feels good to look in the mirror and delight at your svelte figure but healthy weight management is important for a variety of reasons, including warding off disease and staying healthy. However, let’s also not forget the power of being strong and building muscle...

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: While many hotels have their own gyms, a number of people choose to workout in their rooms.

Permanent weight loss is certainly possible. Each one of you knows someone who has accomplished a long-term goal and maintained significant weight loss for 5, 10, 15 years or more. You can be a success story, too, simply by using some of these simple techniques...

One of my favorite cartoons features a squirrel lying on a psychiatrist’s couch, and the squirrel says something like, “Since discovering that you are what you eat, I realized I was nuts.” When you recognize that despite all of your mental refinement you’re still an animal engineered to move, it becomes obvious that lying around can also make you nuts. Brain chemistry goes south when you can’t work off stress, and your mood becomes more negative . . . hostile, depressed, or anxious...

Fast walking is great cardiovascular exercise — it gets your heart pumping and works your muscles. But it can also be hard on your shins, and even cause painful shin splints. Luckily, strengthening your shins can help protect them...

Exercise & Fitness

Exercise & Fitness


by Kathy Smith

There are some things in life you just can’t avoid (beyond the old death and taxes joke). For instance, if you’re eating Double Dutch chocolate at midnight on a regular basis, it’s inevitable that you’re going to start waking up feeling guilty. And when it comes to exercise, sooner or later, it’s inevitable that you’re going to fall into a rut. Whether you’re lacking the motivation to get to the gym, or you’ve grown bored with the routine you’re doing once you get there, falling into a rut is natural...

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Penny Hoff

Do you ever agree to do things only because you are assuming that they will never happen?
These promises can vary in severity from agreeing to raise your nephews if anything happens to your sister and brother-in-law, to telling your friend that you will drive her to the airport at 4:30 a.m. if she can't find a ride, to saying you will stay on the PTA board one more year if a replacement for you isn't found. Pre-nuptial agreements also come to mind...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Penny makes the statement that, for her, it’s not so much that she loves to exercise, she loves how it makes her feel after she’s done it. With so much daily stress and so many competing for our attention, exercising because of the way it makes us feel afterwards can be more of a motivation than wanting to lose weight or get toned. She says “exercise is the warm-up” for every other part of our life...

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...
