  • Eating Healthier during Football Season

    Eating Healthier during Football Season

    by Cory Everyone knows it's that time of year again, football season. Plenty of get-togethers and lots of excess unhealthy food. So here are my favorite tips to stay on track: 1. Eat before you go:
    don't show up to a party starving or else you will fill your plate with everything in sight! 2. Walk through the line first and see everything there is to eat:
    this will let you make a strategic plan of what you want to have on your plate. And when picking the unhealthy choices try to stick to picking "special" items that you wouldn't normally have. 3. Start with fruits and vegetables:

  • Should Women Build Muscle?

    Should Women Build Muscle?

    by Libby It can be harder for women to build muscle than men. Does this mean you shouldn't put in the effort? Absolutely not! If you are thinking about giving up on strength training because it doesn't burn as many calories as running or you aren't seeing physical results as quickly as you'd like...think again. Strength training is about more than just looking good (although it is helpful for that as well). Consistently strength training makes everyday life easier by making you stronger! While you are busy building strong muscles, you are also reducing your risk for injury. This will come in handy later in life to prevent against osteoporosis, joint damage, and falls. ....

    Set yourself up for success

    by Michelle Sadowitz Life is crazy busy - kids to take care of, long hours at work. Trying to fit everything in on a single day feels like an impossible task sometimes! A lot of time our health and well-being is last on the list of things to take care of. Personally for me, trying to fit in healthy meals throughout the week can be tough, and maybe you can relate.
