Hurt versus Sore....when to seek help? Tagged with:

If you’ve ever tried a new form of exercise or taken on a weekend-warrior project, you know what sore muscles feel like. I have worked in the field of exercise science and sports medicine for the past 6 years and I can speak from experience that sometimes that soreness REALLY hurts…but what about soreness when its not a new activity?

Summertime Funk

Summertime Funk Tagged with:

I’m just coming through a season of my life where I felt like all of the motivation in my life had been sucked out of me. I had to force myself to exercise (mostly because I like eating) and it took a lot more energy than usual to get any school work done. I was lacking interest and intensity in my spiritual disciplines like prayer and reading the Bible, though I continued to do them half-heartedly. I felt annoyed by everyone and was often snippy and unfriendly, I didn’t want to go out and I was happy to sit at home and read.

As a former English Major, I read a lot.  I read an article that had a quote which saidExercise has one spelling, but how it is applied is extremely diverse.” [i] The quote made me think of a point my Movement Specialist frequently makes, that one fitness approach may work well for one client but only partially work for another.  Any developed fitness routine needs to be tailored and customized for the individual.

ACT2MOVE and MOVE2ACT: Hamlet in the Hospital Tagged with:

Dr. Bloom was rushed to the hospital on a Monday morning because he had aspirated on a piece of food.  Thankfully, the food was removed from his lung, a very painful procedure, especially because it was performed with just a local anesthetic.  He was put in ICU, given lots of medicine, hooked up to oxygen, and a liquid diet.  I guess you could say, things didn’t look so good.

The PC Dance

The PC Dance

I think this post will require a little bit of background information about me.  For the last four years I have been in graduate school studying physical activity and people with disabilities. Now, I remember when I started graduate school learning terms like “person-first language” and found myself being much more aware of how I address and talk about people with disabilities.
