To gym or not to gym...

How many people belong to a gym? If you do, how often do you go? Honestly. If you don't belong to a gym, why? Have you had bad experiences with either the staff or other members? Have you been confused by the equipment and frustrated there is usually no one around to help you? Do you feel out of place or like you just don't fit in? Is the gym just not your kind of place?

Whatever your reason, the gym is not the only place you can go to get a good workout in. Why not consider having exercise come to you...in the comfort and convenience of your own home. Going this route can eliminate many of the barriers people face when it comes to exercise, such as:

1. Lack of time
2. Convenience
3. Lack of Instruction
4. Family & Work commitments
5. Weather

I truly believe that everyone does want to be healthier and is willing to work for it, if they can find what works or them. Take the time to figure it out now, your decision will affect the rest of your life.

Affordable Health Care

According to Dr. Joseph Mercola and I absolutely agree with him, the key to affordable health care is disease prevention, not treatment.

What is the simplest way to get in shape?

When people ask me what is the easiest thing they can do to get fit and healthy I tell them its simple eat less and move more.

Some interesting and scary numbers

A recent government study estimated that medical spending for obesity reached $147 billion or roughly 9.1% in 2008. About 35% of American adults are overweight or obese. And that percentage is growing.

In an article written by Dr. Joseph Mercola recently, it was stated that Diabetes costs nearly $150 billion annually. Cancer costs nearly $200 billion annually. Heart Disease costs nearly $300 billion annually. The drug industry spends about $15 billion a year manipulating & distorting your perceptions about the proper solutions for your health. And the food industry spends twice that in brainwashing all of us to choose highly processed and fatty foods, which will only accelerate you path towards death & disease, but thats OK, because the drug industry can give you the latest and greatest drugs to control your symptoms.

Enough already!!!!!

How about eating right and exercising? How about not smoking and less drinking? Why not take care of ourselves the natural and healthy way. Its not that difficult of a concept. Let's all try it. Enlist help if you need it, but just do it...literally for your health & well-being.

Preventative maintenance and Health Care

I don't know about the rest of you, but I am tired of the constant fighting and face offs between our government officials in regards to health care. When you think about it, who really has the final say...you do. I believe it is high time that we as individuals take things into our own hands by taking care of ourselves. By taking responsibility for our lives and the condition they are in. Basically, I'm talking Preventative Maintenance. You take your cars and lawnmowers in for regular maintenance, why not yourselves. Start eating better. Start exercising. Quit smoking. Drink less. Make the time and commitment to a healthier lifestyle. No, its not easy, but the alternative is even scarier. If you are unsure how to get started, work with a fitness professional or a personal trainer or a nutritionist. Let Washington know enough is enough. Its time to take care of yourself, because ultimately in the end, no one else will. Certainly not the government. You'll feel better in the end. No pun intended...

Taking care of yourself

As September has rolled in and the summer winds down, it is a great time to re-evaluate your physical well being and take the actions needed to be the happiest and healthiest you possible. Start an exercise program, eat healthier, as Tom Peters says "Take better than usual care of yourself and encourage others to do the same...physical well-being significantly impacts mental well-being and response to stress."

Here's to healthy living.
