She is lifted in Upward Facing Dog.Strengthened in Warrior.Her conscience is steadied by the steady flow. Her echoing footsteps continually applaud Nature's work.The woods are her sanctuary.The rocky cliffs are her murals.On a Sunday ride the wind speaks to her soul and renews her spirit. She takes communion of honeysuckle, fresh berries, and waters from the streamand offers up her adoration to the Sun.The Holy water pours from the sky on a spring day.
BEWARE! This weekend, with the Easter holiday, can be hazardous to your diet! Watch out! The American way of celebrating any holiday can really reek havoc with our digestive track and overall health. Typically, we eat until ready to burst and then repeat this behavior every 2 to 3 hours throughout the day. Start your Easter morning (beat the Easter Bunny) with a welcoming spring walk outdoors! Make it a walk/run for 30 minutes of metabolic boosting joy. Instead of taking full portions of the delicious favorites, cut your portions in half. DRINK WATER!
Since I will be having surgery in June, running is not going to happen in the future, so I plan to swim across Joe's Pond in Cabot Vermont, which I am estimating around 1/2 mile, this summer as my goal. Doing new things instead of doing nothing when your situation doesn't warrant is crucial to keeping positive and staying fit......
Most of you are aware that April 22nd is Earth Day. It is a feel good day for many of us and we might plant a tree or work in our garden to celebrate, and that is good. However, we need to take a look at everything that we do each day, not just on April 22nd.

Ok so I'll admit I started working out with Jane Fonda, I felt the burn, wore the leg warmers, head bands the whole bit. The fitness industry has come a long way since then. Things have come and gone and returned- renamed, repackaged, recycled. We have evolved and educated, certified and re certified,expanded and grown and through it all we remained functional. I mean after all isn't functional a matter of doing it? Doesn't functional mean it means something? I mean would you have a client do a head stand for an hour?

6. If it has Vitamins, it must be good for me.It started 40 years ago with breakfast cereals ("fortified with 8 vitamins and iron"), Wonder Bread ("helps build strong bodies 12 ways!"), and sugary kids drink like Hi-C, and Sunny D ("100% vitamin C").Now vitamins are also being added to cereal bars, evergy and granola bars, and sugary drinks for adults. And we keep falling for it.
It's easy to make mistakes when it comes to buying food. (even teh most seasoned nutrition mavens, who should know better, occasionally screw up.)Maybe you didn't notice that the reducted-fat peanut butter has as many calories as (and more sugar than( the regular. Or that you typically fill your bowl with not one, but TWO 200-calorie servings of cereal. Or that you would never touch Wonder bread but can't resist a crusty (white flour) baguette.
