I had the pleasure of speaking to a group of moms at with our local MOPs group (Moms of Preschoolers) about nutrition and exercise.  I can only hope they got as much out of the program as I did. It was a rainy day outside, but you would never have known that by the cheery smiles and supportive chatter amongst all the women I met that morning and evening.  I was expecting to teach them a bit about proper nutrition and lead them in a mini-Mommy Recess class, but instead I was the one learning from each of them.

The levels of sugar, oxygen, and carbon dioxide within the blood must all be stable, and the pH (the balance between acid and alkaline) of the bodily fluids, including the blood, should be 7.4, slightly alkaline. Balanced body chemistry pH is vital to immune health and disease correction. The body has alkaline parts (like the blood)

Here are a few suggestions to  effectively support your immune system and steer clear of illness.1. Manage your stress levels. The number one enemy of the immune system is stress. We should not be stressed to the max each and every day. Sometimes tough choice have to be made to get stress under control.2. Support your body through food -- REAL food, mostly whole foods. That would be veggies and fruit, lean protein. Organic if you can. Stay away from overly processed and fast foods.

Hey everyone!I’ve been volunteering my fitness and wellness services at one of the Homeless Shelters in San Jose.  The women and children have been giving me such positive feedback on the benefits of the activities we do together.  They have been feeling more optimistic and are learning about the importance of fitness and taking “mental vacations”. Some have requested I come more often and others suggested I expand to other shelters in the area. So, I’m doing it!

First off, everybody is different. Whether it's gender, body type or mind set, everybody is built different, that is what makes us so unique. I just don't get why people want to look like a certain celebrity or athlete, unless you have the time to put into it, the resources to fund it and even the same DNA set up, chances are not everybody is going to look like a certain someone. I have dealt with this on more than one occassion. I remember when I was training, one of my clients/ acquintances wanted to have abs like "Jersey Shore" and only work on biceps as well.
