The Fit Life: Get Fat!

What?!?!?! Yes, we, actually, should be getting 20-30% of our daily calories from fat! And these calories will not make you… fat! Actually, if you eat excess calories form any source, being it carbs, fat, even proteins – you will, undoubtfully, gain weight. Yep. Tough luck.

The Fit Life: Comfort Sugars, Fats, and Other Beasts

When stressed or bored, we oftentimes reach out to so-called “comfort foods”. What are they? In three words, they are “SUGAR – FATS - ALCOHOL”, which leaves us tired, sluggish and sleepy. The more sluggish we feel, the more depressed about our bodies we are. We become disappointed in letting the stress get the best out of us and us get the worst out of the fridge.

So, here we go again: Standing at the Whole Grocers in front of that intimidating wall, featuring several rows of like-looking large cntainers, each container containing that “something” inside.

Be Fit Fit! Are You Truly Motivated?

A question to yourself: When you think of your fitness or non-fitness goals: do you smile? When you think of the yummy and healthy food you plan to eat: do you smile? Do you at least smile to yourself, you know, deep inside?

Be Fit Fit: Raising From Ashes

I hit it. The bottom. It was the Halloween night and I suffered from a freak deep cut accident to my right foot. Bleeding profusely and leaving the trace of my journey the whole way to the ER, I rendered myself to the good souls at the Sedona Emergency Room with the appeal to, pretty please, somehow stop the blood let. They assured me that it is the Halloween night, therefore, they are all fake doctors in there and have no idea…

Sedona Pathways, Our Daily Journey: Nov. 8, 2017

It seems like every time I go to Watson Lake there are new species arriving with the fall migration and these Hooded Mergansers are among the new arrivals. Like Wood Ducks they nest in small cavities in trees and the newly hatched ducklings leave the nest within a day of being hatched … the first step is the biggest and it may be fifty feet or so; it is also the second smallest of the six species of Mergansers … you can read more about this beautiful creature at: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Hooded_Merganser/lifehistory .

Be Fit Fit! Let’s get it right from the beginning of the day!

The breakfast is called the most important meal of the day for a reason. What you eat and how much you eat in the early hours sets the tone for the rest of the day. And yes, you should, indeed, eat a breakfast like a king.

In need of some motivation to stick your head from under that cozy blankie at 6AM to head out for the gym?

Be Fit! Fit! Focus!

Have you noticed how much time at the gym is lost on unnecessary small talk? Whenever I pass by any of the “big” gyms in the area, I observe, with horror, how some gym members come mostly to exercise their maxillofacial muscles while chatting with the other gym-goers.

Be Fit Fit!! -- Just Flex It!

You would ask, what should you do to become more flexible? Unlike other types of fitness (such as cardio), there are no guidelines. What you do depends on what part of your body you need to become more flexible and on where you are at the starting point and what your goals are. Usually, you work towards your flexibility through increasing the range of motion (ROM).

Be Fit Fit! Take It On!

Obstacles be damned. Take that mother on. You’ve got a goal, you’ve got a plan and you are about to execute it, step by step, just as planned. No matter what mother nature, circumstances, or your spouse throw at you.

Be Fit Fit! Love Your Body!

It is all our perception. The same situation/thing/person can be seen as entirely different by two persons. Or even by one person, if that person looks at it from another point of view. “Reality” is just as real as we allow it.

Be Fit Fit: Principle of Minimal Disruption

Be Fit Fit! Salty Subject

Salt, especially the salt we add to our foods, which does not occur in them naturally, is the culprit of many health-related problems, such as cardiovascular issues, high blood pressure, bloating and water retention.

Be Fit Fit! It should be fun!

:: Let's make sure that fitness-related activities you engage in are fun for you. That last part of the previous sentence, "for you", is very important.

Be Fit Fit! Compassion

I cannot stress enough how important it is to be compassionate when you help others on their path to wellness, health and fitness. People come to you, oftentimes as a "last resort", after years of struggling with either some medical problems or weight issues or nutritional habits. It is extremely hard for them to book that first date with the fitness professional, come to the meeting, sit down, open up right away and pour out all the worries, problems and stress, as they see the person for the first time in their life.
