    Focus on What Matters

    focus, happiness, Lifestyle, mindfulness, nutrition, physical fitness

    Vanity metrics. They’re everywhere. Followers, likes, comments, friends, retweets. Those are just the ones on social media. Trust me, there are hundreds more.

    How often do you think we find ourselves caring about something that is actually detrimental? Detrimental to our health, self esteem, self worth, self value, happiness, courage, confidence, you name it. I would say that we do this every day.

    How often do you find yourself checking your Instagram post to see how many likes you’ve gotten? Did you hit triple digits yet? Did you get more than last time? Did your crush like it? Did anyone make a compliment in the comments section?

    How about this… Try asking yourself something productive instead. Try asking yourself “why do I care?” Maybe ask “does it make a difference?” Or perhaps ask “what really matters to me?” I guarantee you’ll get a much different and much more positive outcome.

    Motivating Movement

    Handling Haley

    As I sit at home this morning, enjoying the snow day, I try to motivate myself to go on a run. I’ve been doing pretty good with working out. I have only taken 2 days off since the first of the year, which, I say, is reasonable. But, today I just couldn’t seem to get myself motivated.

    Last night, I was looking online at clothes, and found myself avoiding adding some tops I really liked being added to my cart. I would tell myself, “maybe when you’ve lost more weight, you could try something like this.” Or seeing skirts that were my style, but short, saying “maybe when you’ve gotten down to a size 0.” And today motivating myself to run, all I could think about was being fat.


    Honestly, I am by NO MEANS fat. I just struggle a lot with body image. I allowed others to determine…

    A good idea: postural stretching

    A good idea: postural stretching

    Practicing a regular sport activity has always been a source of well-being and comfort. We spend almost half of our energy on different daily activities. This is difficult to recover, not to mention the physical problems that are added such as back pain , muscle contraction, joint pain , etc. With gymnastics, I have always managed to find the right balance between energy expenditure and the quality of relaxation to compensate for that. But today, thanks to postural stretching, I have more than I hoped for, so I decided to share my little experience with you.

    Why postural stretching?

    You’ve probably heard about classic stretching, which helps to soften the body by stretching . It is true that this practice is beneficial, but it has failings to the extent that the satisfaction it brings to the body is not complete.

    Let’s take a look at the benefits of postural stretching…

    You lack energy during the session? Think about pre workout

    You lack energy during the session? Think about pre workout

    You lack energy during the session? Think about pre workout

    The pre-workout is as the name suggests the snack to take before the weight training session. This is the second most important “meal” of the day, completed by the post-training session. The purpose of this meal is to prepare your body for muscle damage to come, but also to ensure a good level of energy throughout your bodybuilding session.

    Slow sugars before a bodybuilding session

    The pre-workout intake is similar to other snacks. Unlike taking post-training, you must consume low glycemic index carbohydrates before the session (complex carbohydrates). Complex pre-workout carbohydrates provide enough energy for the entire bodybuilding session. Not to consume before the session can limit you in your training. Oatmeal, bananas (green) or wholemeal bread (chicken sandwich) are foods rich in complex carbohydrates for pre-workout.

    Proteins in pre-workout

    The catabolism of the muscles does not occur only during the night, but also during the session. This…

    Pictured (left to right): 16-year-old me, my brother Freddy, and my half-sister Kathryn

    When I was 17, my older brother Freddy passed away from cancer at the age of 30. This was one of the last photos he and I took together. The day our little sister was born, and about a year before he passed.

    20-year-old me

    I graduated high school and moved on to college where I got lost in depression, drank alcohol at least 3 nights a week, and shoved french fries into my face during my lunch breaks. Unsurprisingly, the number on the scale went up to 165 lbs by age 20 (freshmen 15 was more of a freshmen 40)

    I was interested in acting, but did not believe in myself enough to think it would be a career. Being hungover on weekends was a common occurrence. I was satisfied with working in retail for the…

    How to Stay the Course…

    FOOD/FITNESS:

    There is always a buzz about how to do this or that, but when it comes to the fitness and health industry, it is amplified.  You truly can’t not hear any of the new trends or fads.  They are blasted everywhere constantly.

    A perfect example was the other day driving with my daughter.  Now, mind you she picks up on a lot, but we were mid conversation when a commercial came on about loosing weight.  The commercial went on about how this program is the only way to drop the excess pounds, blah blah blah…but then the part that got her attention was when they said “You get to eat real food!”  Her response was absolutely perfect.  She goes, “DUH!  You are suppose to eat real food!”  Yup, exactly.

    I bring this perfect end of the year example up, because every single year there are these commercials or programs…
