Energy Crisis: Beat Tiredness with B-12

You’re Not Tired, You’re Just Deficient

Vitamin D & Fitness

Vitamin B-12 & Fitness

You’re a coffee drinker. I get it. You need it in the morning – you might get two cups if that’s your fancy. Then you feel a crash after lunch and you have another cup of coffee or a soda. Perhaps you’re feeling a little adventurous and take an energy drink down. Well, you’re not doing yourself any favors by shoving that much caffeine in your body. It’s not common knowledge but caffeine is a drug and it’s not natural, making it probably worse for you.

If you’re constantly tired throughout the day it’s not because you didn’t get enough sleep. People get 8-10 hours a sleep and still feel exhausted. It’s not a sleep problem — it’s a vitamin problem.

Scientists and researchers all recommend the body have vitamin B-12. The main ingredient in energy drinks is B-12, but it’s compacted with so much sugar and unnatural carbohydrates that essentially it is bad for you.

Fitness and Health – things you should know

In the wake of escalating work woes, depression and related issues of complications in your lives, you perhaps are being more exposed to health and fitness related issues today, than ever before.

In America already 33 per cent of adults are obese as per the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and it is deemed that a thorough change in attitude towards maintenance of health and fitness is needed by Americans today. Breaking away from cliches, adherence to a suitable health and fitness regime is what is needed by Americans at present.

For that one needs to understand that health and fitness are complimentary components and one cannot keep these two divorced from each other. One who is not really afflicted by any disease and is performing the duties of life without any seeming hassles cannot really claim that he is “fit” if he is not following a well planned exercise regimen regularly.

On the other hand someone exercising regularly cannot really do that avoiding any health issues that might be triggered by his fitness regime. Let us find out what other things does one needs to follow for a healthy living.

Obesity has become a global malady. In the quest to address this growing global concern, numerous fad diet programs are introduced in the market. However, an effective diet to one person may not be as effective to another. The nutritional needs of our bodies are different from each other. If you are on a diet program and it seems that you cannot see any result, it could be that it is not addressing the needs of your body.

It can be frustrating especially if you have already tried so many programs and failed again and again. This is where the role of custom weight loss program comes into play. As the name suggests, it will customize the program according to your needs, so you will end up fit and healthy.

Custom Diet Plans… Yay!

Faith and Fitness – Review

Faith & Fitness Magazine

Faith & Fitness

Get to know Faith & Fitness

I have three passions in my life. My God. My family. My health.

When I get a chance to combine these, man, I am all over it!

Awhile back, IFBB Pro Mark Dugdale, mentioned that he had been interviewed for Faith & Fitness magazine, and that I should check it out.

I clicked right on over, and found a very cool website that combines two of those favorite things–faith and fitness. In fact, I liked it so much, I added them to the blog roll, right over there in the sidebar. –>

No Agony, No Bragony

Know your limits. It’s ok to push yourself. I’m all for setting new Personal Records (PR), but if you just end up hurting yourself, the whole point is defeated.

That old adage of “No pain. No Gain.” is very dangerous if you don’t listen to your body. I once strained my rotator cuff because I didn’t listen. Luckily, with a little rest, it healed.

Becca wasn’t so lucky, and ended up with a slight bicep tear and shoulder surgery that put her out of the gym for nearly a year.

Strive for that next level. Just don’t skip a stair to get there, or you just might trip yourself up.

Catnip Tea

It’s medicinal, I tell you!

Kitty cats love cat nip

Catnip tea – Yeah – it’s that freakin’ relaxing.

It’s ok — you read that right. We’re talking catnip today. You know, the stuff that makes your cat stoned? We’re going to make tea with it.

No, it’s is not the same as those funny brownies in college. (Wait, what?)

When I told Becca about this, she looked at me with a scowl, and said, and I quote, “Ewww.”

First, what does, “getting fit” really mean?  No worries, here’s the answer; it depends.  Seriously, it depends on your goals, time, gym or no gym, and do you have equipment or just body weight.

My daughter, Brianna (B) just committed to play lacrosse in college.  She will be a junior in a few weeks so she has 25 months to prepare.  Yes, I’m a proud father, but the point is she has a different view of “fit” than most of us.  Playing at the D1 level takes big commitment

Gaiam, the company that produces various workout DVD’s, sent us this Pilates kit by Mari Winsor to review for you.

At the time I was powerlifting and Pilates didn’t fit in that routine very well. Becca was recovering from shoulder surgery, and was on strict orders not to exercise. The box got put away, and forgotten about.

What a mistake.

Guest post by Jennifer Bell

Living fit & healthy is not always the easiest task to accomplish in a society where technology has made everything immediate. Obesity is a growing epidemic. People with over 25% body fat are considered obese. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 33% of all adult Americans are obese. Furthermore, nearly, 17% of all children are obese, according to the New York Times. Americans need a wake up call to get active and remain healthy.


Change as the situation requires

Life. She’s going to throw you curve balls. You’ll be going along. Everything’s great. Then BLAM!!! You’re forced to deal with something new. Something different.

How you adapt, and handle that diversity shows what you’re made of.

It doesn’t have to be anything as serious as a death, or loss of a job (although we could easily talk about that in our current economy).
