by Marc D Thompson What is fitness? Is it functionality or aesthetics? Is it strength or speed? Is it low cholesterol or low resting heart rate? Well, it is obviously all of those and much more.Wading through the endless books, magazines and journals can be exhausting and many times ideas, theories and disciplines are contradictory. Why? Because fitness is not an absolute science. Fitness takes science and develops it to best suit an individual or team.
Sugar is bad for your health & your waistline. Diets high in sugar are linked to increased risk for type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Sugar intake is also linked to depression, migraines, autoimmune disesases, and osteoporosis.Sugar is sweet AND sneaky...It gives you a rush then sends you crashing later...and wanting MORE! Sweets are so tempting and the more you eat the higher your tolerance is.
I visited a preschool class today and did a "show and tell" on the importance of finding ways to exercise (which is not hard for them to be active) and eating right. It was kept simple.

Hey all sorry it has been so long since my last post, the last few weeks were a bit stressful but exciting at the same time. They say in order to grow you need to do something that scares you everyday. Well I am not sure about the everyday part but the last 18 months for me has basically scared the crap out of me but I am getting to do what I love so it is worth it. This past weekend was a perfect example of putting myself out there.
I had a good week 6- Got in most of my workouts -- PLUS a lot of other stuff!! This weekend I took off of workouts but was very active-- today we built a fire and cleaned up a bunch of dead trees and logs- I LOVED IT, but it was a ton of work. Yesterday I brush hogged-- that went well too.
It's the first day of October and the weather is cooling down. It's the perfect opportunity for some outdoor training.
