Today is May First. It seems like the month of April just flew by. At the end of a month I always find myself reflecting on what has happened over the past month.

Brown fat, once thought only to be located on infants and hibernating animals has now been found on adults. The tissue’s main function is to maintain body temperature and can be activated and seen through PET-CT scans after the individual has been exposed to cool temperatures.
Often we all get bogged down by trying so hard to eat better. We simply find ourselves unable to change what foods we crave. The key is to learn to cook! We think we are the weight we are partially because WE LOVE FOOD THAT TASTES GOOD! But here's the reality...
It's been awhile since I posted anything here. I've been very busy with work and many of life's other responsibilities. One thing that has remained consistent is my own workout ethic. That ethic is something I wish to continue to bring to members of the community. It is my belief that any person of any age can fit in some sort of effective exercise into their day's routine. If you only have 20 minutes of spare time, you can get a tremendous amount of exercise in that time. If you are someone like me you will do that on your own almost
