Fitness Friday: Breathing is Good

Posted at Jan 23, 2015 6:37 pm in , ,

I’ve been having allergy problems recently. My voice is about a half octave lower than normal, my throat feels a bit closed up and my breathing has been strange. I’m not sure if it’s the new ventilation system at my day job or the fact that I’ve been cleaning out my office and garage at home […]

Fitness Friday: I’ve Got the Music in Me!

Posted at Jan 9, 2015 3:55 pm in , , , , , , , , , , ,

I try to work out four times per week. Of course, it doesn’t always happen. Last night I didn’t leave the day job until after 7 pm and I had to get home instead of go to the gym, but…I try. My workouts typically consist of 30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of floor […]

Fitness Friday: Stretching is a Must

Posted at Jan 2, 2015 2:53 pm in ,

Stretching is critical to protect your body from injury…and not just for working out. During my workout, I include stretches on the following: hamstring, hip flexor, calf, quads, shoulders, biceps, triceps and sometimes forearms and wrists to assist with repetitive motion pains and strains..  Here’s a great web post showing numerous stretches. Good luck and […]

Fitness Friday: Moderation

Posted at Dec 26, 2014 3:58 pm in , ,

I’m on a constant state of searching for balance these days. I’m an all-or-nothing person by nature, a perfectionist if you will. Don’t get me wrong, that particular trait has done well for me in my life–but as with any great strength, it’s also a great weakness. So, when I do things, I tend to […]

Fitness Friday: One Step at a Time

Posted at Dec 19, 2014 4:49 pm in , , , ,

I tend to be an all-or-nothing personality. I’m either awesome or an utter failure. That trait is great when I’m awesome; not so great when I turn into a turtle and hid in my shell. The last few years I’ve been pretty good at exercising, but when I have a book due or things get […]

Fitness Friday: It’s All About the Shoes!

Posted at Dec 12, 2014 8:47 pm in , ,

I was working out on Tuesday and my feet started killing me right in the middle of my workout. The reason: my shoes. I supinate a bit, so I really need shoes that support. Last week I knew that I was finding it more difficult to keep my heel down during my wide squats. I […]

Fitness Friday: Water, Water, Everywhere

Posted at Dec 5, 2014 3:40 pm in , , ,

One of the things I’ve learned about myself during my health journey is that I don’t drink enough water. It’s easy enough to figure out when I do. I feel better, my skin looks better, I breathe better, and I don’t build up water. I’m VERY sensitive to all kinds of salt; I have been […]

Fitness Friday: The Day After Thanksgiving

Posted at Nov 28, 2014 4:51 pm in , , , , ,

Wow. It’s the day after Thanksgiving. We ate, we drank, we ate some more. And man, today, I’m not hungry AT ALL! Yesterday I didn’t keep track of what I ate. Part of me is glad. Did you know the average adult consumes about 4000 calories on Thanksgiving? Not sure if I did, but it […]
