Posted · Add Comment

Summer is in full swing, busy with entertaining, late nights when family and friends come to stay and lazy days on the lake or floating down the river. Of course, I love summer and the R&R feel that comes with it, especially reasons to celebrate the season’s long lazy days and summer “treats”. However, we all know that if these habits become part of our regular routine, it can lead to unwanted weight gain.

To stop those pounds from sneaking back, I’m sharing with you “Five Mindless Habits that Can Add 6.5 Pounds” If you find yourself doing any of the following on a regular basis, send me an e-mail so that we can schedule a session. I will empower you to make choices that will keep you feeling great!

Essentials for Strong Bones | May 2014

Imagine the structure of a house. The goal is to have a strong and sturdy home. Your bones are your support system. However, unlike the beams in your house, your bones are continuously being broken down and rebuilt. In fact, by the time you are 18 to 20 years old, about 90% of your bone structure has been established. Once you reach your 30th birthday, your bones will have reached their “peak bone mass.” After that, your body will begin to lose more bone mass than it will gain. If you have not built up your “bone bank” with adequate nutrition and the necessary minerals by that time, osteoporosis can set in, which increases the risk of bone breaks and fractures. To help you avoid this, this month’s newsletter is dedicated to building strong and healthy bones. Share with with me what you plan to do to build up your bones this month!
