Healthy Holiday Eating

Hello friends, and Happy Holidays! The season is in full gear! With parties, celebrations and gatherings galore, this means food is everywhere! Snacks, desserts, dinners, pot lucks; all of the extra indulgences that are just so hard to say no to are tempting you at every turn. If you are anything like me, this time of year is definitely the most difficult as far as watching your weight is concerned.

So I thought what better an idea than to find some different recipes that are healthy and don’t make you feel like you are missing out on the spirit of the...

How to Remedy the Wretched Food Coma

The holidays are vastly approaching, and we all know what that means: parties filled with loving family, amazing friends and, of course, let’s not forget the food coma that comes along with any Thanksgiving celebration. No holiday would be complete without a mouthwatering butterball, creamy mashed potatoes, freshly baked bread, pumpkin pie with homemade whip cream, and the champagne to celebrate. Mmmm, I can taste all the calories packing on right now just thinking about it! So, how does one celebrate with family and friends without packing on the pounds? One way to stop the Thanksgiving gain is to take part in a pre-Thanksgiving workout before indulging on homemade snacks and pies. Interval training, a workout that alternates periods of...

Good Things Come to Those who Sweat – Part 2

Hello friends, and welcome! Last week I started a (several week long) series where I wrote about exercise and it’s health benefits. We began with the ways that it can help you mentally. I enjoyed learning more about the things that I already naturally feel when I exercise, and I hope you did as well! This week I would like to add on to that by diving into the physical and more importantly, medical health benefits you can obtain. We all know by now that exercise can help you feel better, boost your self esteem and relax you from the stresses you experience in every day life, but what can it do to assist in sustaining your life physically?
