The lunge is one of the foundation movements for fitness workouts. When done correctly, lunges can help strengthen the hamstrings and the glutes -- which is why they are commonly used in running warm-up routines.
A year and a half ago, I was eating like crap, not working out, and generally feeling awful. It was a tough life, and I realized quickly that I couldn't sustain a life like that. It was impossible. So I hired a trainer to force me to be better. I made an enormous lifestyle shift, and I am so happy I did.
So whatever your plan for giving back this season, volunteering is much more than just your year-end obligation. Your generosity could help create strong connections within your community or even kick off an entire movement! And be prepared to enjoy the major side benefits of health, happiness, and fulfillment it will bring you.
With that in mind, I have put together a short list to encourage you to say no to some of the unhealthy habits and labour-saving devices we have become accustomed to:
Beyond just the financial, I live an abundant, healthy life I love to look at -- and love to live. Is life perfect? Definitely not. But it is beautiful. And it was hard won.
A wise older woman once told me, "If you always do what you always did, then you'll always get what you always got." So I decided to do something different with my morning workout and made a new playlist for today's indoor bike ride.
Your health is a journey with no beginning and no end. No set path that is going to take you there. It is a lifestyle. There is no timeline. If you have the courage and grit to make it happen you will achieve it.
Amazing how just 12 months with the right guidance can transform your life "If you want to lose weight, eat less, exercise more." They're telling us...
Experiences, exercise, the love of friends, peace and acting in service of others are the stepping stones on the path to fulfillment. Spend your life in these pursuits and you will change yourself and the world around you.
Self-love is not a destination. Expect a journey instead, littered with imperfect moments. Be prepared to invest continual effort and attention. By following the prescription above, we say YES to love -- at the end of the day, isn't that what life is all about?
Autumn is an excellent time to find new workout music.
Every giggle and snuggle with my daughter is a reward no trophy or medal could compare. I, am a 37-year-old single mom with Parkinson's, kidney stones and tendinitis. I proved what overcoming adversity, determination and strong will can accomplish, slow and steady. Until my next adventure....
As I sat near the finish line with no medal around my neck, I still loved watching people complete it... and it made me want to do try it again. So don't be scared to attempt that marathon or half marathon on your bucket list because failure is only failure if you don't get out there and attempt it.
