30 Day Challenge-Be Active

I have been trying to lose weight for the last several years. I am slowly headed in the right direction, but at a snail's pace.

During these times I did little else in my free time except train, but I was in the best shape of my life. I want to get my fitness level back up and my weight down a bit, but I don't want to spend all of my free time working … [Read more...]

Got Stress? So What Are You Going to Do About It? Part 2

If you are like me, stress manifests itself in physical ways. Even if I don't cognitively realize I am stressed out, my body knows.  My shoulders draw up and the muscles in my upper back and neck contract.  Next comes the headache.  I am prone to migraines.  Stress may not trigger a migraine, but it certainly can add fuel to the fire. Pain certainly doesn't help anyone's stress level. I find therapeutic massage to be very helpful in managing and reducing the physical manifestations of stress. I … [Read more...]
