Have you ever come home and thought… I can’t take another step! I certainly have.  I’m grateful that I was taught early on to nurture and care for my feet. Your feet make up about 25% of all bones in the body. Neural communication from your feet effects the way your muscles react with every step you take too. So if your goal is to remain active and out of pain for many years to come, take a moment and implement at least one of the tips below… Stay Hydrated… If our bodies do not receive enough water to function,...

Weight Loss Challenge: Alkalize Your Body

Posted by on May 15, 2014 in Healthy Living | Comments Off on Weight Loss Challenge: Alkalize Your Body

Maintaining the alkalinity of your body is vital for maximum health. Our blood should be slightly alkaline for proper digestive health, a strong immune system and ultimately a more efficient metabolism. This all creates a healthier body and simplifies weight loss. Normal pH levels fall between 7.35 and 7.45. Neutral pH is 7.0. Anything below 7.0 is considered acidic, and may lead to adverse reactions and make the human body more vulnerable to viruses, bacteria, congestion, inflammation, and disease.

It’s a Journey…Not a Destination…Weight Loss

Posted by on May 1, 2014 in Challenge | Comments Off on It’s a Journey…Not a Destination…Weight Loss

If ONLY being healthy and remaining that ideal size were a destination. Many times throughout my life I’ve wished this and maybe you can relate. No such luck! Maintaining a healthy body is like brushing your teeth, if not done daily they get hairy/slimy (we get weaker &/or heavier) and eventually teeth will fall out (we end up in pain or sick/injured). I was reminded of how this feels – yet again – over the past several months. In the fall, I decided that I was going to compete in my first bodybuilding/bikini contest (I...

Weight Loss Challenge: Clean Your Fridge!

Posted by on May 1, 2014 in Challenge | Comments Off on Weight Loss Challenge: Clean Your Fridge!

After you’ve chosen something to throw away, spend some time thinking about what healthy item you can replace it with. The goal is to have as few unhealthy items in the house as possible so that...

Eating Clean is a very important part of healthy living.

Calling All Couch Potatoes!

Posted by on Jan 9, 2013 in Healthy Living | Comments Off on Calling All Couch Potatoes!

Let’s Get Moving! When “exercise” or the thought of getting “in shape” feels so overwhelming it’s paralyzing; it’s time to shake it off and start! A great way to start is to focus on creating a habit and just begin to move. An excellent time is while you are watching your favorite TV program! While sitting and watching your favorite show, have two 3- to 5-pound dumbbells (or two bottles of water) on either side of you. When a commercial starts, do 12 reps of one of these moves until the show starts...
