 You might think it has all to do with what you eat. However it has nothing to do will what you eat. The culprit is how you are sleeping. Research published in the Journal Of Clinical Endocrinology( a fancy term for hormones) and Metabolism found that a lack of sleep can impact your brain in such a way that pushes you towards the pantry, not away from it.

 We all need to sleep better. Me included. Better sleep will help with recovery, muscle growth and fat loss. Heard it before.... correct? But how do we go about it? This is how.... 1. Exercising in the morning around 7am will help you spend 75% more time in deep sleep and let you cycle through the four stages of sleep more often. What are the 4 cycles? I don't know but all I know is a sleep like a log after a early morning training session.

 You know you need between 6-8 hrs. of quality sleep each night to help your recovery from your awesome training session today. Here are some foods that will help you get there. 1.Almonds: A handful contains muscle-relaxing magnesium and sleep-inducing tryptophan, which increases the brain's level of feel-good serotonin. 2.Skim milk: Mom was right -- a warm glassful will help you sleep better. The milk's tryptophan has a sedating effect.

1) Eat a Smart Breakfast. Most people load up on carbohydrates and simple sugars for breakfast. Cereal, pastries, smoothies and juice are all poor choices when it comes to starting your day off right. Center your breakfast around protein and healthy fat, and you'll have energy for hours.

I cannot begin to describe how beneficial a proper amount of sleep can help you progress through your strength training program.  I’ve always been one to just get by with a few hours of sleep per night even when I knew more sleep was the way to go.  I was felt like I had too much to do before I went to bed or I could catch up on sleep during the weekend…wow, was I wrong.

Well it's been a little too long since my last blog post. This year...this is the year that I will be more faithful with my blog. I promise! :) I thought I would share two things: my New Year's resolution and how I am staying healthy over the winter season.

It happened again: daylight savings struck; somebody stole an hour of sleep from me and I have only now adjusted to it. I love daylight savings time with the extra hour of daylight in the evening but I need a week to get used to it. That prompted me to reflect on the importance of a good night’s sleep. It’s not that easy to come by, it seems, judging by the amount of sleep medication that is prescribed nowadays.

"Your Body, Your Move!" A Blog from Move Well Fitness, LLC.
During a recent visit (May 16th if my memory serves me correct) to the scale at the gym where I work, I jumped on it and it read 190 lbs. Ouch! That was a shock to me as I had not been trying to gain any weight nor had my workout routine warranted any weight gain.  I made up in my mind that day that I had to change a few things in with my lifestyle. Here is what I've changed in the past week and a half that has me down to 180 lbs. and still counting (my goal weight is somewhere b/w 173-175 lbs.)!
