How Do Personal Trainers Stay Fit?

Who doesn’t want to know how a professional takes care of business?  We've all read the articles: "What Does A Genius Do To Help Remember Important Tasks?" (They apparently focus on one task at a time.) or “What Does Jennifer Aniston Do to Have Sexy, Beautiful Hair?” (She uses "Living Proof," her own haircare line, go figure.) or the most recent one I read: “How Does Oprah Relax?” (She takes Sundays off.) I have been a personal trainer for over 20 years.  During these past two decades, I have helped a lot of people lose weight, get fit, feel better, and live longer. In this time I, myself, have actually gotten leaner and healthier too.  I have a lower body fat percentage at 44 years old than I did when I was 30 (take that middle-age!), and I can still beat people younger than me in a foot race and in the gym – however the recovery time is a tad bit longer than it used to be. These are the top 6 things I do to stay in shape. ...more

Feeding tube diet slammed: $1600 for 10 days of weight loss that won't last

Can we say "rip-off?"  That's the best word to apply to the feeding tube diet, which costs an appalling $1,600 for 10 days. It was recently featured on "The Doctors," and the hosts exploded in outrage, as the Examiner reported. At a fee of $1600 for 10 days, the feeding tube diet does result in weight loss but he contends that it is only temporary....more

12 Hour ATR Ultra Plan & The Fine Art of Obsessing

Here it is less than 48 hours before my 12 Adventure Trail Run and I'm getting dangerously close to throwing a little hissy fit.

They also reduce the inevitable chaffing from such an activity....more

21 Reasons I love 21 Day Fix!

Today I figured that I would break down my results and the reasons why I absolutely love the 21 day fix!! So I figured I would list the 21 reasons why I love the 21 day fix!

Six Simple Reasons to get Enough Sleep

Sleep is one of those time consuming things that I often take for granted. I think it's the consequence of being a perpetually sleep deprived student. Recently, my husband and I purchased a brand new firm-but-soft-super-comfy mattress and I LOVE it! I find it hard to leave my bed, especially after our sheets are freshly laundered....more
