Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: This is Part 1 of a 4-part video series on what it means to have total fitness and the steps to take to achieve it. One piece of advice that Catherine has is getting 10 hours of rest a day. What is interesting is her definition of rest which includes more than just sleep: meditation, knitting, a hot bath, a nap….anything that is relaxing to you. She also provides suggestions on how to find those 10 hours within in our daily busy lives.

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Denise Austin

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...

Recycling gift bags is a tradition in my family. We’re talking down to the nametags.

Each year, after our loved ones pluck new treasures out of slightly rumpled sacks that may or may not still have torn tissue paper inside to disguise their contents, they are returned to the original gift givers to use again next year...

 

Editor´s Note: Quick and simple read, Jen reminds us that just because we have always done something a certain way doesn't mean that it works. It reminds me of how often I have a new client look at me like I am insane when I tell them that they need to change something that they have held to be true and necessary for so many years that it has been ingrained in them. People often need a reminder that if they want to see change, something needs to change. Want to stay the same? Keep with tradition.

No one is perfect. I eat foods that are bad for me too (Mexican, anyone?). Certain circumstances arise and sometimes you just can't control what is put in front of you. The trick is to eat in moderation and make the best choices you can. No diet works. No diet pills work. YOU have to do the work...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: This week’s fit tip is from Lisa J. Kelleman-McClain, CPT, Build A Body Personal Training.

Recently, I was in Colorado Springs raising money for breast cancer at Rally For The Cure. We were playing tennis, and all of the women came up and asked, "Kathy, how do I get my arms in shape?" The answer: Kettlebells!

Here's why: kettlebells engage your entire body in a few fluid motions, so it's efficient! You'll burn calories, and work your arms, legs, core and butt all in one motion. With one kettlebell, you can sculpt and define your entire body.

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Are you a Type A personality? Perhaps you’re a Social Butterfly…or a Nature Nut…maybe you’re Spontaneous or the Indoor Type or just plain Lazy. Whatever your personality, here’s a humorous and insightful video on matching workouts to suit that inner drive…or lack thereof.

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Love this hilarious video! Anyone who has spent time in a gym has a story to tell of the stereotypical ways men and women exercise – but what if the roles were reversed?

Lately, I have been thinking about the concept of “getting real” with ourselves. This is a tricky concept because for many women, it can be taken to the extreme...

 

Editor´s Note: Jill hits the nail on the head here. You can't hate your body into changing. Too many women have come to me over the years thinking that if their bodies change, they will like themselves more and be happier. The women that don't lose this mindset tend to be the one's that lose weight and gain it back and are in a constant state of diet and weight loss jail or are disgusted by themselves for where they are. They never reach a happy, content and balanced life. We all deserve balance. Take Jill's advice. You will be glad you did.

by Kathy Smith

When we hear the word “muscle,” we generally think about the biceps, triceps, glutes and shoulders. But there’s an overlooked area of the body that deserves some much-needed attention: Your feet. Think about it: Your feet are the foundation of your body and your life. Whether you’re an elite athlete or an occasional walker, your feet are responsible for carrying you everywhere you go in life...

 

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Carolyn Hansen

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...

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...
