If you are always struggling with your weight and wish you could be in better shape you may enjoy my book, Get Fit To Go. It is an anecdotal motivational guide with success stories, personal insight, compassionate advice, and exercise and nutrition tips. (A former personal training client suggested I write an exercise manual and the seed was planted!) For those who may have read fitness books that were purported to be self-help books but rather made the reader feel more discouraged- or led to a fad that fizzled out after it got 'old', then my book may be the right one for you. Small steps, gradual, doable changes that become permanent NEVER get old. They become a way of life. Tweak the diet, get up and go for walks, join a gym (or not- but BE active), burn calories and build muscle. You do not need to train as if you are trying out for the Olympics. Well, if you do God Bless You and Your Greek God-Like Body---you go!!! But for those that only have a limited amount of time outside of hectic work/parenting schedules, the reality is you have to do something because your health depends on it. How many books or videos have you purchased? So then try mine! You have nothing to lose...except a few pounds. (That's in my book!)

The rain may have put a damper on weekend plans but it also cooled things down by about 20 degrees.
Record-breaking heat engulfed the Northeast this week. It boils down to this:When it's hot we need to take care!
As the temperature rises we sweat more, our bodies lose fluids through the simple act of breathing, and we are at risk for dehydration.
Some signs of dehydration are sunken eyes, dry mouth, cramping, headaches and muscle fatigue. When the body becomes dehydrated our total blood volume is decreased. Since blood plasma is mostly made up of water, the oxygen carrying capability of our blood is decreased causing our working muscles and organs to be deprived of oxygen.
Sometimes we misread our body's signals when we are feeling fatigued or hungry. Instead of going for a quick and easy snack, drink 8 ounces of water and see if you feel better. Sometimes a glass of water is all that's needed to improve physical performance and curb the appetite. Eight glasses of water a day is recommended for adequate hydration. If you fall short of the mark it's okay. Snacking on fruit such as watermelon, peaches, oranges and grapes helps you to meet your water quota.
Lazy days of summer have made an early appearance. Please out your personal safety first and stay cool and hydrated.
