Have you ever had a day when things did not go as you had planned, where it seems like Murphy's Law is at work (If things can go wrong they will) well I had such a day but I must say I learned a few lessons from it. On the day in question I clicked on the wrong address in my GPS, this took me to sickleville New jersey instead of Princeton (1.5 hrs away). My phone was acting up and off course I was using it as a GPS.
Don’t be blind and see through the la-bull..
Hey everybody! All of you know that I am a preacher when it comes to clean, healthy eating. My question to all of you is: how much thought do you put into what you eat? Really, think about it.

Those who participated in the moderate workouts lost weight without as much effort. Keep in mind that this study used aerobic exercise sessions, not resistance exercise sessions.
Most people including myself have their blood cholesterol checked once or twice a year. The results can provide your health fitness specialist information on how to adjust your workout program to optimize these numbers. In addition taking your blood pressure (both arms) and your resting heart rate are important.
With the beautiful weather outside, this is a great time to start a walking program. Start off slow and work your way up to 3-4 miles a day. Once you get that accomplished, try to add some sprints into your program. Walk one block and run 1/2 block. Work your way up and you will be running the whole thing before you know it. It also burns a lot more calories when you run intermittently.
