Core Core Core

All we hear these days is “strengthen your core”, “activate your core” “train your core”. I came across a great little educational video on Youtube that is a quick and easy tutorial on what exactly you are trying to activate, and how to do it.

Try doing these every other day in April and just watch your results!

There are endless, and I mean ENDLESS articles on-line about the correlation between water and weight loss. Some are full of scientific information that most people could care less about – others are truly just one person’s anectdotal evidence. I’ve been searching for a succinct, easy to understand list of reasons to drive home my point and passion about drinking your water. I think the list below hits all the major points, scientific and otherwise. I hope you will read ...

And, I’m off and running (no pun intended)

Posted by:

I’ve been thinking about blogging for a long while now. Thinking about how I don’t have the time, but I have a lot of opinions and information I’d like to share. Thinking about how to best do it, make it the most interesting, create the most splash.
