Get Out of Your Own Way to Get Healthy

Do you love baseball? Many times we're up at bat and before stepping on the plate, we have mentally struck out. You kick the dirt in frustration for not hitting the ball out of the park or at least getting on base. And so it goes with life and fitness success you should be enjoying. If only the negative committee in your mind would sit down and shut up.

We often get in our own way when it comes to reaching fitness goals. We're too busy coming up with reasons why fitness doesn't work for our lifestyle. Whether it stems from fear, frustration, laziness, or procrastination, your mind plays the biggest role in reaching and maintaining your goals

There is no easy way to achieve success without hard work and lots of sweat. We all need to put in the effort to get where we want in life. My Dad always told me life is tough. We don't need to make it harder on ourselves by playing negative mind games that keep us from creating a quality healthy lifestyle.

Negative Nancy or Ned will need to take a back seat so you can be successful with your efforts to reach your goals. There will be frustration along the way which is all part of life and the journey to get healthy. Exercise will be challenging and eating healthy will not always be one hundred percent. This is called being human and balanced.

What matters is maintaining a positive mental focus and not allowing negative thoughts talk you out of doing what needs to be done. There is no amount of work, social life, family drama, laziness or whatever you allow to consume you that is more important than your health. Once this is realized, it will be easier to stay on track with consistent exercise and eating healthy. Excuses will no longer be an issue when fitness becomes a priority. You will finally be out of your own way and onto a new healthy you. Time to hit the ball out of the park 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…

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…
