It’s Thanksgiving this week in the US and it’s time to count up all of the things of which you are thankful. If you’ve started your journey to better health, and seeing amazing results, then you’re going to have a big smile on your face. But, what if the scales have barely budged? What if your favorite jeans still require a little jiggling to get into?
There are, literally, hundreds of different exercises you can do at home or at the gym. This amount of variety is often important as it keeps things fresh and stops you from getting bored and giving up. But, what if you hate complexity? What if you just want to do a few exercises and then get back to your life?
After months of studying to be an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, I wasn’t done with my learning. The main reason for becoming certified was so I could help others that are at risk of a heart attack or stroke. One of the biggest risk factors is obesity, so I decided to complete a 25-hour ACE course to become a Weight Management Specialist.
Running can help you reduce the risk of any type of death by 27% and by 30% for cardiovascular disease, a new study reports.
The good news is, you don’t have to run much…
“They found that nearly any amount of running—logging less than 50 minutes per week—lowered the participants’ risk of early death from any cause by 27 percent. Additionally, running led to a 30 percent lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease and a 23 percent lower risk of death from all types of cancer.”
You also don’t have to run fast. Even running at less than 6mph (me on most days) is fast enough!
November is #EatSmartMonth. With Thanksgiving, Christmas, and other celebrations fast approaching it is important to make healthier food decisions.
But, it’s insanely hard and can take the fun out of family gatherings, office dinners, or a night out with friends. We have enough stress at this time of year (deadlines, shopping, finding a parking space!) so I’m not about to add to it by listing out all of the dietary changes you should be making.
You’re welcome. 😛
Instead, let me share with you the one simple holiday diet hack: eat the same great foods, just less of them.
