I won’t be getting a flu shot this year, this is why
Our brain likes to see and hear things in 3’s
3 Wise Men
Three blind mice, 3 little pigs, 3 billy goats gruff
red, yellow, green stoplight
red, white, blue American flag
Stop, drop roll, I could go on, you get the picture
Todays workout is no different, I have 3 sets of leg exercises, one set is strength for the quads, one set is conditioning for the calves, and the last one is cardio for burning more fat
and thats it, the good, the bad, the ugly
A diet low in magnesium has been linked to unwanted increases in the inflammatory process. While some amount of inflammation is necessary to support normal immune function and tissue repair after injury, chronic and low-grade inflammation has increasingly been tied to increased risk of heart disease, obesity, and diabetes.
Restoring magnesium levels to recommended intakes has led to normalization of inflammation in clinical trial settings. For example, one large clinical trial found that a Nordic diet strategy — a diet rich in fish, whole grains, and vegetables as sources of magnesium — led to a suppression of the important inflammatory trigger interleukin http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=75
last two months of the year coming up, so far through Oct
I say its been a GREAT year so far & HEY we still got 2 months to go!!!
Uncle Jeffy at 2pm today went under the knife to have a procedure done called
to relieve pressure on his spinal cord to keep his shoulder and arm from losing anymore strength
its a 5 hour surgery and he is expected to be in recovery room around 9pm
Wish him luck!!
I completed my Masters degree in 2003 and worked at the hospital here in Bowling Green till 2008. I worked in cardiac rehab where people went to strengthen and rehabilitate after heart surgery. During my time the heart doctors were performing over 380 open heart surgeries a year which is more than two-a-day sometimes, WOW!!!!
Most of the patients we had were over the age of 55 but some people trickled in under 50yrs old, I’m going all-in to say the younger generation will be having heart attacks and surgery at 35-40yrs because of the lifestyle our “society” has created.
Looking at the death list again,
These 5 things are contributed and complicated by OBESITY and the reason I quit my job at the hospital. I want to help people before they get high blood pressure, before they have open heart surgery, before diabetes & cancer, before they go to the hospital, before they die!!
The only way I know how to help is to educate and show people how, I believe its my responsibility to throw it in your face and help you help yourself!! Physical activity, eating healthy, and limiting tobacco use are three things we can do to help from having a heart attack, once you commit to my program you will find your own strengths and weakness in life, you will know what needs to be done to make changes that make a difference to help you fight obesity.
I believe being born and living in KY we are at a disadvantage and already behind the 8-ball. More premature deaths in our state than most others in the nation and its mainly because of our lifestyle, education, and income level. We need change, we need something else to help. More money is spent on drugs and surgeries than ever before, in my opinion they are just doing a job, another day at work for the Doctors, lawyers & Insurance companies
I am ready to do something different
Lets get to work!!
This Picture was on the front page Daily News and when I saw it my blood boiled!! I’m all about family enrichment ideas but how in the world can you promote a doughnut eating program targeting kids?
Kentucky school children are fighting the worst Obesity epidemic this country has ever faced and then the Warren Co School Board and Rockfield Elementary promote doughnut eating.
The thing that upsets me the most is that Warren Co School Board already voted down a proposed Physical Activity Bill because Mike Wilson said “I think we do a pretty good job of tracking food and nutrition anyway. It causes problems for us when Frankfortcomes out with something like this.”
Kids in this country today are expected to die sooner than ever before. High blood pressure, type II diabetes, ADHD, irritable bowl, joint inflammation, and all sorts of adult health problems are being seen in the population of the young. I believe the heart attack of today at 45yrs old will be the heart attack at 25 for kids born after 1995. If you are a doctor, nurse or pharmaceutical sales then that’s good for job security but for me it’s very frustrating because our kids are the future.
Kentucky is one of the worst in production, income, education but leading the nation in Obesity and health problems.
Something has to change and I’m here to help, just ask!!
Just my opinion, What’s yours?
While cortisol is an important and helpful part of the body’s response to stress, it’s important that the body’s relaxation response to be activated so the body’s functions can return to normal following a stressful event. Unfortunately, in our current high-stress culture, the body’s stress response is activated so often that the body doesn’t always have a chance to return to normal, resulting in a state of chronic stress.
Higher and more prolonged levels of cortisol in the bloodstream (like those associated with chronic stress) have been shown to have negative effects, such as:
- Impaired cognitive performance
- Suppressed thyroid function
- Blood sugar imbalances such as hyperglycemia
- Decreased bone density
- Decrease in muscle tissue
- Higher blood pressure
- Lowered immunity and inflammatory responses in the body, slowed wound healing, and other health consequences
- Increased abdominal fat, which is associated with a greater amount of health problems than fat deposited in other areas of the body. Some of the health problems associated with increased stomach fat are heart attacks, strokes, the development of metabolic syndrome, higher levels of “bad” cholesterol (LDL) and lower levels of “good” cholesterol (HDL), which can lead to other health problems!
To keep cortisol levels healthy and under control, the body’s relaxation response should be activated after the fight or flight response occurs. You can learn to relax your body with various stress management techniques, and you can make lifestyle changes in order to keep your body from reacting to stress in the first place. http://stress.about.com/od/stresshealth/a/cortisol.htm
Millions of us deal with arthritis & joint inflammation, the older we get the more prevalent and chronic the pain gets.
Pain is felt when two bones of a joint rub together and cause irritation
If you are more than 10lbs over weight or have high blood pressure & stress levels then your flare-ups could happen more frequently. One of the best treatments for arthritis is to give the bones and joints support. Skeletal muscle in the body is designed to support those bones and joints.
Sugar, processed foods, acidic drinks, alcohol could all contribute to irritate and activate the arthritis in our bodies.
Make sure when you eat that you are nourishing your body with nutrients and getting some type of structured physical activity to stimulate blood flow to lubricate and sooth arthritic joints.
This summer I will be using my personal training studio to devote more time to help people with Arthritis and joint pain, If you experience flare-ups & suffer please leave a comment or contact me about getting some SUPPORT, COMFORT & RELIEF this summer.
My goal is to help you have more good days than bad days
