Mind, Body, and Soul =Weight Loss Tagged with:

Don’t be discouraged before you start, or even after you start, for that matter. Weight management is a long and hard journey that requires your soul, mind, and body but it will change your life.

I know people can feel unhappy for not seeing family, or maybe going through some tough times during this part of the year. It appears as if this is specifically directed to the holidays.

Activity during the Fall

Activity during the Fall Tagged with:

In my 35 years as a quad amputee physical activity has been the main reason for my weight maintaining a consistent variable. This has been advantages for me staying active. The problem at times has been trying to find the time, activities or just exercises in general to maintain and advance my physical fitness. With over 54 million people with disabilities and only a few being physically fit, I fall into a category in which secondary health conditions can be an issue as I advance in my age. Hence, it is imperative that I develop, maintain and increase my physical fitness regimen.

Exercise? It’s all attitude and a calendar

Exercise? It's all attitude and a calendar Tagged with:

With the beginning of the fall season, a change in schedule always precipitates. I have now established a change in exercises, days to exercise, diet, and even rest days during the fall. Over the last three years, I have grown accustomed to having a calendar that lists my daily schedule and activities. When this happens I feel like I have switched gears from summer fun activities to hard core structure I basically have my fall season planned out for each day. This is great for me considering I just spent the summer free lancing it. I can then focus on just bringing a fun-filled attitude for when it’s time to exercise.
