Exercise and Memory

10/29/2014
 The interconnectedness between our mental, emotional and physical lives is becoming more and more apparent, at least to the world of science.  Many of us have intuitively known this to be true even before there was any science to prove it.  While we couldn’t necessarily say why working out and eating healthy affects us in such a positive manner, our guts knew we were on.....Read More.

Top 10 Active Wear Outfits

10/27/2014
I don't know how about you, but I personally don't like to compromise between comfort and style. As much as I like the look of skinny jeans with high heels, and a tight leather jacket, I don't like to get out of my comfort zone like this on a casual day.  And as much as I'd like to hang out in my old stretched out.....Read More.

Just Five Minutes?

Just five minutes of exercise, Z?  Really?  How is that possible?  The short answer is yes.  Five minutes of exercise has been shown to have a definite, positive effect on our health and wellbeing.    Of course, there are other factors to consider – diet, weight, genetic predispositions, smokers vs. nonsmokers.  Still, this recent study demonstrated that five minutes of exercise has a whole host.....Read More.

Increasing Pain Tolerance Through Exercise

10/09/2014
I’m sure many of you have experienced the following painful symptoms when working out with me: Your muscles feel like they might be caught in some kind of exercise-induced wildfire from all the lactic burn.  Oxygen seems to suddenly be at a premium.  Your lungs are caught in a bear hug and maybe you’re even a little nauseous.  Your timer or stopwatch could not be.....Read More.

Exercise and Bone Health

10/08/2014
With Halloween just around the corner, I’ve been thinking about our skeletons.  More specifically bone health and what we can do as women to ensure healthy bones well into old age.  According to the Harvard School of Public Health, osteoporosis occurs in a whopping 80% of all menopausal women!  Menopause may be a long way away for some of you, but plan ahead!  Building and.....Read More.

What Shapes our Lives

10/02/2014
If anyone asked me if I regret anything I've done in the past, I'd say sure, but what I really regret are all the things that I haven't done. Whenever we go through any difficulties in life, it always seems that things are just happening to us. That we have no control over anything and we tent to blame the environment we live in. Try.....Read More.

Fighting Fatigue

09/25/2014
 Fatigue affects us all and can be caused by a variety of factors.  The most obvious cause of fatigue is physical, but that is not necessarily the most common type of fatigue nor is it the most challenging.  Often mental fatigue can take a greater toll on our energy more than anything else.  Juggling our various roles and responsibilities can be taxing on our willpower.....Read More.

Exercise and Skin Health

09/23/2014
While it may be true that beauty is only skin deep, ensuring that we have healthy skin, especially as we age, is something that most women obsess over.  It’s no wonder skin creams and lotions are advertised and sold as magic potions all over the world.  Unfortunately, so many of these products amount to so much snake oil. The truth is one of the most.....Read More.
