Checkup Time

       We all know that a visit to our doctor once a year is very important. But, have you ever thought to ask yourself why? Now let me think. First and foremost, early detection of a health problem gives you a much better chance to prevent it from getting serious. Secondly, you  establish a lasting relationship with your healthcare professional. And finally,you can have a peace of mind. Now, make your appointment early and remember to always ask questions, lots of questions. Ok, now open  wide!


See you in the waiting room. Until next time, Keep it Moving

Two Amazing Studies

  Studies suggest that, exercising for just 15 minutes a day can add 3 years to your life .Study author Chi-Pang Wen, MD., Dr.P.H. says, it's not just a heart benefit. Exercise may also reduce risks of diabetes and cancer.

  Study author Daniel Fuck, Ph.D. found that, runners who particaped in a race will keep working out. He went on to suggest that, the goal of your first race should be to finish, not to finish in a specific time.


Who said studies are boring?  Groove On!

Re-energize

    Thought you needed a little pep in your step,right? An energy drink would take care of that, so you thought. I bet that didn't turn out so well did it, and here's why. Most energy drinks have three times the amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee. Others contain as  many as 12 teaspoons of sugar. Imagine that! Twelve teaspoon of sugar or 135 mg of caffeine in a single serving, Wow! Do you really need that? To re-energize always get plenty of rest, eat well, stay hydrated and take your multi-vit. Furthermore, always drink coffee and sports drinks in moderation. And if you need an energy drink, use wtih caution. You really can get to much of a good thing.



Stay Charged and Keep It Moving. Just like this guy above!

Turkey Trot

For those of you who didn't participate in a Turkey Trot this holiday weekend, don't fret. It's hard to make them when there's so much going on. After all, it's time to eat good food and visit with family. Not to mention, a chance to catch up on some much needed rest. Now it's time to get back to business. I know it's hard to get started again. But nevertheless, it has to be done. Here is what you should do. Listen to your favorite song while you're donning your running gear. I bet that'll get you moving. If it doesn't, just look in the mirror at the pounds you've gained.


See you on the road my friend!
