THE CORTISOL CONNECTION AND WEIGHT LOSS Working out hard, training for competition, contest prepping, juggling fitness, family and home, struggling with sleep while living a busy life, these are all stressors on our bodies (not to mention minds).

An often asked question from clients is "Why can't I lose these last ____ pounds/inches?"   The answer is not always the same due to variable factors that include age, gender, present lifestyle habits, chronic conditions, stress management, medication, etc., that can vastly alter the result of effective exercise and nutrition.

Ever wonder why most group instructors or trainers end classes or sessions with deep breathing? No, we're not finding ways to waste those last few minutes!  Well, ok, sometimes.  We're usually doing one of two things or both:

I've not kept this a secret, I openly talk about it... On June 15, 2007, I had Roux en-Y Gastric Bypass Surgery. It was a decision required for my health - blindness did not appeal to me, and oh so much more. I also will tell you that there continues to be NOTHING easy living with having this surgery. IT IS A TOOL, like all tools it must be used appropriately. The things I've learned!!!

This is the forgotten part of fitness. Not has sexy as core training. Or pumping out a set of bicep curls in the mirror. Or wearing that tank top to show of your muscles. Hey I have been guilty of all that!

A big thing I’ve been preaching to my clients as of late is to persevere through all obstacles.  We all have them: injuries, job, family, relationships, and mentally.  My words might not always come out like this, but I’m trying to say, “Stay calm, be strong,” more or less.  What I mean is that I don’t want clients to become overstressed.  Don’t sweat the things you can’t control – the things that are beyond our control.  Control what you can control and you’ll take care of business in the other areas.

Everyone has stress, it's a natural occurrence in nature, it's what makes things change and happen, its what gives us that push to go above and beyond what we would normally do. In certain times of your life you'll find that the amount of stress increases due to outside sources, internal pressure, and various other things that are going on in the semi organized chaos that we call life. How you handle the excess stress can make all the difference when it comes to physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing.

Eating healthy and training hard at the gym can go to waste if you're not managing your stress. Stress causes the hormone cortisol to be released which can cause increased abdominal fat, elevated blood pressure, decreased immune system and blood sugar imbalance. Try attending a yoga class or tai chi, mediation and being in nature.

We spend most of our lives breathing to shallow and not through our belly's. Breathing deep for 5 min a day like in the video below, will help with your stress and your back pain. However you don't need the pillows demonstrated in the video. Lying flat on your back with your feet on the ground will be fine. Try for 2 weeks and notice the difference. Your body will thank you

I often find it funny when my clients give me the double take because I've told them to take a "rest" day.  Or when my Mommy Recess clients, give a big exhale of relief at the end of class when I tell them to take a moment for themselves and just breathe.
