An email from my client!!!!Honestly after 1 week at home (easter break) no running and eating & drinking more than you should have, my first day back & my usual workout (5 miles run) was killing me & so unenjoyable I cut it short! I hate that I gotta get through this tough period before it gets enjoyable again. Maybe this was a bad day will try again tomorrow. Does anyone else find this?
Nutrition Facts panels can be tedious to read—and, frankly, they aren’t nearly as visually appealing as the rest of the food package and the claims on it. Which is why, unless you’re a dedicated, detailed label-reader, you might be surprised to learn that sometimes there are not-so-healthy ingredients hiding in food you’d otherwise think is healthy.Here are four food categories that, surprisingly, contain not-so-healthy ingredients that you should watch out for:
When it comes to belly fat, it’s not about what meets the eye, but what lies beneath that is cause for concern. A visibly protruding belly, also known as a pouch, gut, or spare tire, is unsightly by some standards, but when researchers mention increased risk for chronic diseases, the fat they are referring to is visceral fat. Also called intra-abdominal fat, it lies beneath the abdominal muscle and is not visible. Even people who are not obese by measure of Body Mass Index (BMI) can have too much of it. Visceral fat is deposited around organs in the abdominal cavity.
I can't tell you how exciting it is to have so many women fired up to get fit, healthy and SHINE for SUMMER!! The Energy is certainly contagious! It goes to show how Energy is transferable! Another NON-tangible that is so vital to a successful fitness program is your mind. As you workout you must not only strengthen your skeletal muscles but also "MIND MUSCLE".

Clients and friends frequently ask me how to train for various events and activities. Spring is upon us, which means motorcycle enthusiasts and scooter riders (expecially in the city) are hitting the road, making fitness for riders a hot topic. Riding a motorcycle or scooter is a fun and challenging activity. It’s a great way to get where you’re going, escape from the everyday doldrums, spend time alone in the outdoors, and learn a lot about yourself while exploring new places.
A friend I have is considering a career change in her 30s and asked me my opinion via text. I shot back quickly without almost thinking "I've never regretted my switch at 30". After I had replied, I stared at my reply for a bit; wow, I truly have never regretted my decision to completely change careers at the age of 30. There certainly have been bumps along the road as I entered my new journey.It was a huge risk for me and my family to undertake, and the reward has been huge. I've just had to be creative in what I view as a reward.
