  • How to Break the Cycle of Restricting and Overeating

    How to Break the Cycle of Restricting and Overeating

    By Libby I hope you spent your Thanksgiving surrounded by the people you love and not counting calories. I hope you were able to get through the day without being worried about what to do when the pie comes out. I hope you didn’t say, “I’m working out twice as long tomorrow to burn all of this off.” When you are trying to make healthy choices, the holiday season can be very stressful. The number one thing that leads to overeating, however, is restriction.

    Practice Thankfulness

    by Michelle We all have had to practice for something before. We practice sports, playing musical instruments, baking, learning new exercises, or learning a new language. Whatever skill we want to take on, we need to practice to learn it and to get better! But how often do we think about practicing to have a thankful attitude? This is the season when we get together with friends and family for Thanksgiving to celebrate and have a good time, but do we really spend enough time considering what we have to be thankful for?

  • Stay on Track this Holiday Season

    Stay on Track this Holiday Season

    by Faith We have entered a tough time for healthy eating. For some it started with candy on Halloween, and will continue with parties and get-togethers for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year, where food and drinks are abundant. This time of the year can stress many people out. Many are afraid to fall off track from their goals and start the next year “behind.” Mindset is key through this season. Picking what to eat and how much to eat is much more a mental game than physical. With that being said, we also want to be able to enjoy our favorite foods. Nutrition should be 80/20 …80% of the time making nutritious choices, while the other ....

  • Keep Lifting those Weights

    By Lisa Kim has been a client with LUX for four years now, and she is a primary example of why it is so important to strength train. She has shared a very recent and scary accident with us: Two weeks ago it was raining hard. I slipped off my running board getting out of my car and fell HARD.

  • 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:
    before anything else touches the plate start with salad, veggie slices, or fruit ....
