Our Health

When we think about our health, we really don’t. I am a 53 year female. Although I think about my health, I really don’t. A few months ago, I started having some medical problems. I went to have a physical. My doctor told me I was diabetic.

At first, I was in denial. But that wasn’t the problem. After telling my doctor there was something really wrong with me, she sent me to another doctor who said I was packed and needed a laxative. Knowing that was not the problem, I told him that whatever was wrong with me, it must be in the blood. Because they are doctors, sometimes they don’t listen to you. I was so sick that I literally could not get out of bed most of the time. My feet, knees, elbows, wrists and ankles hurt so bad...

Derailed Finances

The stock market was down almost 45% this year. Housing values are down 20% and unemployment is at an almost all time high.

Do you still feel secure in your financial future? No one wants to be a pessimist but it is important to be a realist, especially now.

Before you get on a diet, you should at least know the importance of dieting and why it should be healthy.

Better physical shape and live healthy

For obvious reasons, it should be healthy so that you will be in good physical shape as well.

Follow a Healthy Diet Plan

Follow a Healthy Diet Plan

If you’re like most dieters, you want to lose weight quickly and keep it off. There are a lot of tempting and sensational sounding fad diets out there, but the best approach is to follow a sensible healthy diet plan.

Although you may be tempted to start a fad diet (or crash diet as they are also known) that promises to help you lose amazing amounts of weight in a few days, you need to think carefully before you make your decision. The fact is that many of these diets fail to produce lasting results.

These diets usually fall into one of two categories: the reduced calorie or restricted food diets (where you must avoid certain foods and only eat from a very restricted group of allowed foods), or the diets that require you to use special supplements,...

Strength Training is Real Exercise

Strength Training is Real Exercise

Somehow the notion that exercise should be either easy or only moderately difficult continues to be the most detrimental misunderstanding by many would be exercisers.

5 Exercise Tips on Losing Weight

5 Exercise Tips on Losing Weight

Apart from eating right and getting enough sleep, the one thing that researchers, doctors, and health experts agree upon that is a universal “must” for staying healthy is getting regular exercise. If you are overweight or at least want to shed a few extra pounds to improve your health or appearance, getting enough exercise is even more essential.

There are two main reasons why many people do not get enough exercise: 1. lack of motivation; 2. lack of time in their schedule. In my experience, if you can get over the first challenge, motivation, the schedule-related challenge will take care of itself. That is because, once you are properly motivated and start seeing the results you want, you will make the time to exercise.
