Yesterday was a pretty rough day, physically, for me. As a group exercise instructor teaching a good number of classes a week and contending with fibromyalgia symptoms seems so incompatible. I worked with them during our stretch portion which benefited me but just demonstrated bits and pieces during the sculpting portion. One of the keys to geting "excited" about working out is the warm-up, I think, because it sets the tone for the rest of the class. The class did PHENOMENAL doing a warm-up that I cued and I could tell they were giving it their all.&nb
Welcome to September, National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month. In 2010 the CDC reported 17% of kids 2-9 years old were diagnosed as obese. In fact obesity is doing pretty well for itself these days. In the past four decades, obesity rates in the United States have soared among all age groups. This rise in obesity rates has affected our youth in alarming fashion. Childhood obesity has increased more than fourfold among those ages 6 to 11.

You can pick your friends, you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your friend’s nose. I’d giggle forever as a little girl saying this phrase. While I’m not too interested in picking my friends noses these days, I am interested in picking my friends. Individuals we spend time with have an incredible impact on our behaviors. We adopt behaviors from friends, family, and co-workers we don’t even realize.

Here is an article I wrote that recently appeared in The Sheboygan Press. Enjoy! Q: I have a cold. Should I exercise or will it do more harm than good? A: Follow the “neck up/neck down” rule when you are not feeling well.If you have symptoms from the neck up--stuffy nose, runny nose, and/or slight cough but no fever--you should be ok to work out. Just take it easy. Work out at a lower intensity than you would if you felt 100%.
