"Health and Fitness"

Reduce starchy carbs

Starches include rice, bread, potatoes, corn, beans, and other legumes. While many of these are no way bad foods, most of us eat too much of them. The goal here is to cut way down on them, if not totally out, and then add them back in when your body feels like it needs energy. This will teach you the relationship you have with carbs. They are vital for our energy but eating too many of them leaves us lethargic (and eventually fat). Once you figure this out, your entire relationship with food will change.

Make your plate colorful

The more colorful your plate, the more nutritious your plate could be. There are foods that can take up a lot of space on your plate and will be low in calories. Veggies are the best option. You can eat a salad with a ton of veggies and you most likely won't exceed 100 calories. By eating low-density foods like veggies and fruits, you'll keep your portions under control. It's important to beware of salad dressings and other things you add to salads and veggies. When it comes to meat, the richer the colors, the fresher the products tend to be.

Gastric bypass and bypass sleeve surgeries fails to ensure success

While gastric bypass and gastric bypass sleeve surgeries are advertised as an inticing opportunity for fast change in weight loss, they will not create a fit and healthy individual in of themselves. 

Time Out

How many times have I heard, "just no time", well I say taking 15 minutes a day to be active is better than not at all. Most of us think we don’t have enough time to exercise. What a distorted paradigm! We don’t have time not to. We’re talking about three to six hours a week – or a minimum of thirty minutes a day, every other day. That hardly seems an inordinate amount of time considering the tremendous benefits in terms of the impact on the other 162 – 165 hours of the week.” ~ Stephen Covey

XTREME Session #1 is history

Although this was our first session these women were impressive. Following body comps and introductions the majoritiy participated in an Intro To Kettlebell Session. Doing so prepared them  for what's coming down the pipe.  The others rocked a water rower/kettlebell circuit.  Each group is assigned a trainer.  A portion of the training session is set for the group to discuss that days lession. FB groups allow us to break out with our coaching for some individual team coaching.  It hasn't happened yet but I suspect a bit of team competition is in our future.

Foods today vs. 100 years ago

I was at a meeting a few days ago and the presenter gave a great presentation in regards to food and the choices we make with food. She started with explaining how the 80% of the food we have today in the grocery store didn't exist 100 years ago. 100 years ago, food was organic, cage free, grass fed and sea captured. Today, our food is processed, cages, corn fed and tank raised. Not to mention, the pesticides and food additives we add to food now to preserve freshness and keep bugs away.
