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…

What is breast cancer?

What is breast cancer?

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, after skin cancer. One in eight women in the United States (roughly 12%) will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. It is also the second leading cause of cancer death in women after lung cancer. Encouragingly, the death rate from breast cancer has declined a bit in recent years, perhaps due to greater awareness and screening for this type of cancer, as well as better treatments.

Breast cancer is a disease that occurs when cells in breast tissue change (or mutate) and keep reproducing. These abnormal cells usually cluster together to form a tumor. A tumor is cancerous (or malignant) when these abnormal cells invade other parts of the breast or when they spread (or metastasize) to other areas of the body through the bloodstream or lymphatic system, a network of vessels and nodes in the body that plays a role in fighting infection.

Breast cancer usually starts in the milk-producing glands of the breast (called lo…
