For some odd reason people will believe total strangers on answers for their health questions without any questions to their own backgrounds. Why is this? And what have they learned?
Pills are the miracle way to make you look and feel better...False
Be smaller then you were in Highschool by surgery or lasik....False
Gluten is bad....False
Carbs are bad....False
Fat is bad.....False
Eat carrots, apples and bananas.... Umm ever heard of any other vegetables or fruits?
Why do we put up with all of this? Here comes the real truth so lean in tho you might not like it......PORTION CONTROL. Everything in moderation. Stay away from empty carbs, processed foods and unnatural sugars. Exercise regularly and be proud of the body you have and STOP trying to fit into someone elses jeans. That is not healthy thinking and is probably never going to happen so then begins more unhealthy thinking. Realize that EVERYTHING good in lives takes hard work and dedication. It took you a long time, months? years? to gain the weight or lose the muscle. Allow the SAME amount of time to work it off.
I am not perfect and I hope this reaches those that hold higher expectations for themselves than they should strive for. I wish one day weight loss companies would take peoples BMI's, Blood pressure and cholestrol levels and compare those instead of your pant size. Because your health is what truly matters. Keeping those doctor visits at bay, staying away from man made pills etc.

How many times a day, week, month do you have clients/strangers come up to you and ask you about your nutrition? I am always surprised when I start to break down how many people I talk to about nutrition and find out those numbers range from 30-100+ a month. What advice are you giving them? Are you suggesting the Whole 30 diet? Paleo? Eating Organic? Or just marketing certain grains and vegetables that you have found work for you? Anyway you are answering this question you are helping someone else make money. What if you could provide your clients not only the fitness advice but nutrition as well and make money in both directions? You should be getting compensated for every angle in your business.

I have been training for my first triathlon and it has brought on different challenges. One of my main challenges has been to fit in swimming training. I am not a fan of public pools and do not live to close to a lake where I can train during the week. I have added rowing into my routine and try to row about 6000 meters every couple days. Will this work? Or are there better directions to go then rowing?
Has anyone ever started a fitness challenge? I would like to hear about it!
I will be participating in my first Triathlon in October. I have raced in different obstacle races and running races but never a triathlon. First off there is a novice race I will try out on August 9th to get my feet wet on what it will be like to transition between swimming, biking and running.
Are there any other suggestions on what I should do to prepare?
During this Memorial Day weekend where activities, traveling, family and life were many of the excuses getting in the way of eating a healthy meal. Tell us how you are able to juggle life and festivities AND keep your slim fit figure?
I have noticed a great way is by using current technology. Having something to make you feel obligated to eat healthy tends to help you say no to big portions or sweets. There are many great apps out there that allow you to keep track of your calories so while you are running around getting everything done something is keeping track of your calories so you don't have to worry about counting or keeping a pen and paper around.
Other great ways are to buy healthy snacks and keep them in your purse. When you are on the run the stretch in between meals sometimes gets lengthy and when you finally sit to eat the feeling of being famished is overwhelming and can become challenging to hold off on giving yourself seconds.
Tell us what your favorite go to snacks are?!
It is important when you are focusing on becoming a healthy balanced person to focus on working out and the types of food you are eating. The types of food and the amounts you eat are in direct correlation on how well your body performs before, during and after a workout.
I suggest you keep a food journal today. Write down what you eat, how much you eat, what time and why you ate the food. If the journaling goes well today, try to keep your food journal for a week or two -- it will help you see where your health habits may need improvement. It's too easy to forget about the little snacks and nibbles that happen throughout the day. A handful here and handful there can add up to hundreds of extra calories you don't even realize you're eating.
You don't need a fancy journal to keep track of your food intake for a day. Grab a piece of scratch paper, use your day planner, or find an old notebook that you can tote around for a day.
Let me know your progress. Tell me what you found out about yourself!
In today's culture living a healthy life style is striving to be abnormally skinny or crash diet to become thin and "healthy" looking. Not many take a step back to actually view the miracle that is our bodies and to appreciate what our bodies are really capable of doing for us.
Your Body is Divine....
WIth 206 sturdy bones,
more than 650 dynamic muscles,
12 perfectly synchronized organ systems,
and over 10,000,000,000,00(trillion) life-giving human cells.
Your Body is Miraculous...
Every day your heart beats over 103,000 times,
your respiratory system powers 25,920 breaths,
your body produces a consistent 98.6 degress of heat,
and your body produces almost 200 billion new blood cells each day.
And that's just the Beginning....
Every day your mind, body, and spirit work together to give you the fortitude to fulfill family, church,work, and community obligations. You take good care of everyone else; it's time to take care of you.
Make a promise to yourself - right now - that you will appreciate your body as the precious gift from God it was meant to be. Satan is jealous of your physical body because he doesn't have one - and he'll continually try to seduce you to abuse, neglect, and despise yours. Don't let him.

Working out. Those are either dreaded words or they are the words you live by. What is it about working out that drives people? I strive to be a workout junkie and to motivate others to start working out. This can be challenging because I think in some ways society has created working out to be equal to losing weight. So when you become unmotivated or slack off on eating healthy then the active part of your life falls away also.
I am here to say that working out, whether you eat terrible, have a desk job or do not care to look like a fitness competitor, has so many benefits. Your body is actually designed to pump more blood and oxygen through it when you are active. Your body thrives on movement of any kind.
All you work out junkies, what advice can we give to those who are trying to understand the crave of working out? What motivates you?
For me personally I used to trail run all the time, nothing compared to the crisp, clean air, the unevenness of the ground and best of all the view. Now that I have moved to an area that does not have trails, sidewalks or clean air I have had many struggles to regain that motivation. Working out used to be part of my regimen but now I realize I enjoyed the outdoors as much as the training. Without the outdoors the training became challenging. Through my struggles of regaining that passion I realized I work out best when I have a goal. Events! I love to pick an event; warrior dash, 5k, 10k, half marathon, it doesn’t matter. Picking out an event that excites me helps me refuel the passion I have for pushing myself and to feel the benefits of training whether I am in a gym, at my house or outside!
Counting from the age of exercise Pilates is on the younger side. Pilates was first created by Josef Pilates in the early 90's. In the beginning he created Pilates to help strengthen those who were injured laying in hospital beds. From there dancers were the first to take to the routine and concept of Pilates. Today it seems that everyone has heard of it, tried it or is participating in Pilates.
A significant amount of research through the years has been done to help others understand the benefits of incorporating Pilates into a regular routine. There are many benefits from exercise but what can Pilates provide you. Well in this research it has been proven by just adding Pilates twice a week in an average persons work out week that you will see a difference in flexibility and abdominal and upper body muscular endurance. When the average person includes Pilates 1 hour a day 5 days a week then there has proven to be significiant waist circumference reduction and BMI percentile reduction.
I strongly encourage anyone who has not already to start working out today and if you are struggling to find a workout your enjoy or can stick with then sign up for Pilates today! This type of work out is fun to learn and has less strain on your joints then most other routines out there. If you haven't already give Pilates a shot to show you how it can benefit your life!
If you have further questions or would be interested in trying Pilates out contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will guide you in the right direction!
