We Do What We Think Is Important

Did you know the brain is an organ that controls the functions of the body?  "It is sometimes referred to as a muscle of thinking as the brain actually tells your muscles what to do." 

Often times we get in the way of our brain. It's trying to tell us to eat right, exercise, and get plenty of rest but we go full rebel on ourselves. Instead of listening to what we should do, we do what we think is important.

Health and fitness haven't made the important list for many of us. We are so caught up in doing things that never include workouts or cooking a healthy meal. We would rather sit with our faces buried in an illuminated screen with a bag of chips. Well, everyone has busy lives and there is someone busier than you working out right now.

When are we going to allow our brain to control our muscles during a great workout? Our body is not meant to sit in office chairs all day moving to the sofa for the remainder of the night. It's meant to be challenged, worked and exercised.

We need to get real and admit we're not taking responsibility for our health and fitness. Being overweight and poor lab results are not taken seriously. Walking around in denial applies to most of the population. We're pretending there isn't a problem. What?!

When we change our mindset is when our muscles start responding in positive ways. We need to do what is important not what we think is important. Your health equals happiness and a quality life. You will be able to do those other things with a healthier, stronger body.

If we don't make time for our health and fitness, illness will eventually make time for us. Life is too short to continue to get this mixed up. All in fitness love. Be well and Stay Healthy!

What is depression?

Depression is a common yet complex mental health condition affecting more than 16 million adults and 3 million adolescents in the US each year. People with depression feel sad, empty, or hopeless much of the time. It’s more than a case of the blues; depression looms like a storm cloud that won’t let sunshine peak through. It saps the joy of being with friends and family. People can lose interest in hobbies, sex, and other pleasurable activities, and they may have trouble eating or sleeping.

Some cases of depression have a genetic component, but lots of factors beyond an inherited tendency can spur and aggravate depression symptoms, including various environmental factors.

Sometimes people don’t acknowledge or recognize depression in themselves or others, so they fail to seek help from a health care professional. But without treatment, depression can linger for weeks or months–sometimes years–and can lead to worsening symptoms. Depression can wreck lives, friendships, and marriages and p…

Reduce Sugar Intake to Get Fit, Healthy, and Reduce Body Fat - Day 30 New Year, New You

Are you eating too much sugar? Many of us may not even realize hidden sugar is contained in many foods being consumed. Also, much of the food we eat is converted into sugar.

The problem remains consuming too much sugar isn't healthy, contributes to weight gain, obesity, and illness. Refined and added sugar can be addictive and keeps you coming back for more. Because of this, many of us are overfeeding but starving for nutrients. The outcome is a temporary sugar fix and added flab layer.

Is the Latest Fitness Trend—Here’s Why That’s a Problem

Quick, what comes to mind when you think of a marriage proposal? Probably a man on bended knee. Well, now you need to add a lady doing squats to that image of betrothal bliss. Because the new trend out there is something called “proposal shape.” Yes, that’s right: Before you’re a shredded bride, you now need to be a fit fiancée.

It’s no longer enough to be skinny when you say “I do.” A number of today’s women are pressuring themselves to be hard-bodied by the time they say “Yes.” As in, “Yes, I’ll marry you! Just let me do a few burpees before we take a selfie so I can tighten my glutes in this fantastically new, flattering bodycon dress I happened to throw on even though I had absolutely no idea you were going to propose this evening! Hold my kettlebell.”

Proposal shape is a tight and curvy metaphor for how out of whack our expectations of the whole wedding process are and the ridiculous pressure women place on themselves during the whole bridal experience. Girlfriends who are pre-f…
