…veterans, whether they are retired, served only a few years, are still serving or have or have not served in combat, each one took an oath to
“…support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”
How many times have you started a healthier lifestyle – tried dieting and exercising just to find yourself back to where you started, or worse yet, in worse condition??
You’ve starved yourself, exercised until you cannot move then found yourself half way through a bag of chips to make you feel better, only to loath yourself for doing it. You’ve gone to the gym religiously for two weeks and eaten nothing but salads to have only lost two pounds – or to your dismay, actually gained weight!! UGH!!!
Now that the Summer holidays have officially ended, we’re faced with busy days filled with school, work, and after-school activities. Our schedules have become so packed that we’re scrambling each day to figure out what to cook that will be both healthy and quick. We barely have the time to sit down and eat, let alone having the time to grocery shop and cook at the end of the day.
Don’t worry. There is a solution. If you’re trying to eat more healthy, but don’t have the time to cook every day or the money to pay a food-delivery service, then meal prepping is for you.
Labor Day is upon us. The last Summer holiday. For many of us, this sparks the end of holiday vacations until Thanksgiving in November. Though we’re sad to see summer go, we’re happy to usher in the fall months. In the South, Fall means football and tailgating.
No matter which team you’re cheering on this season, we’ve got you covered with some healthy tips for your tailgate.
We live in the Information Age. Everything we do involves some type of technology. Whether working or playing, our devices are never not within our reach. We have programmed our devices to wake us up in the mornings, tell us the weather, read the morning news, navigate traffic, schedule meetings, reserve a table at a restaurant, buy movie tickets, order dinner, and, when it’s time to go to bed, to turn off the lights.
And, now, we even have devices that monitor our fitness levels.
It’s August, and in the South that means triple-digit temperatures. And, no matter the time of day, the humidity is high and the heat is unbearable. For many, that means it’s time to forgo the outdoor workouts and hit the gym.
But for a shocking number of women, the thought of going to the gym is intimidating and overwhelming. A recent survey of 1,000 people by Fitrated, a platform for gym equipment reviews, about 65 percent of women avoid going to the gym because they fear being judged.
Have you ever wondered how weight training and building muscle can actually help you lose weight? It seems like an oxymoron, right?
Are you afraid that if you gain muscle that you’ll just look bulkier when all you really want is a leaner body? Do you believe the theory that you must do lots of cardio training to lose weight?
DO NOT believe everything you read! The truth is, weight training is a key component to weight loss. You look better, build confidence, become stronger and your body becomes a calorie burning machine as you create more muscle. Let’s break it down just a bit into bite sized pieces we can more easily digest.
It’s widely known that exercise can improve cardiovascular health and increase fitness. Research has proven that daily physical activity can help lower risk of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke and heart disease.
However, exercise not only provides physical benefits, but it also helps improve your mental health.
