Reading For Your Health

By     |    July 10, 2017

Virgin DietCurrently, I’m reading The Virgin Diet by JJ Virgin and I’ve started on the diet myself

For those of you who have not known me that long, you may not know that I’ve been a fitness consultant before I ever invested in tax liens. Although I stopped working as a personal fitness trainer about 15 years ago (because I felt like I lived in the gym), I’ve always been an athlete. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t participate in a sport.

Fast forward to today….

I’m now in my late 50’s and unable to workout as often as I would like to, due to my schedule and little injuries that keep cropping up. But I also do not have the energy that I had in my youth. And by that, I mean that I don’t have the energy and motivation to work out that I had when I was in my 30s and 40s.

Part of the problem is that as the years went by I got a little lax with my diet. When I was younger I was very interested in nutrition. In fact, I have a BA degree in biochemistry and I had planned to go back to school and get a MS in nutrition, but I got married and had kids and then became the Tax Lien Lady, so I never followed through with getting a degree in nutrition. However, I never stopped researching and learning about it. I have always been interested in health and nutrition. And I’ve always eaten a pretty good diet compared to the average American. But I’ve got a little lax over the years with my diet and my workouts.

This book was just what I needed to clean up my diet and start feeling good again. As I write this article, I’m only 4 days into the diet, and by the time it’s published I’ll be one week into it. For the first 21 days, it’s pretty rigorous. The subtitle of the book is “Drop 7 Foods, Lose 7 Pounds in Just 7 Days.” And for the first 21 days, you go totally without those 7 foods. JJ explains why you need to do that in the book. Whether you choose to go on the diet or not, I suggest you read this book. In it, you’ll learn the truth about the food that you eat and it may be causing your medical problems. Problems like type II diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, and even some cancers are caused by the foods we eat. And why what 100 years were wholesome foods, are no longer wholesome foods. It also explains how we are killing our environment. The good news is that you can do something about it.  You can start eating well for your health and for the health of the environment!

Let’s face it, everything is easier and more enjoyable when you’re healthy! You have more energy to give to your loved ones, and to your hobbies, business or career. Being your best does wonders for your bottom line!! Get the Book!

Get In Shape For The Holidays Now!

By     |    December 5, 2016

I started this blog after I turned 50 and this coming spring I’ll turn 58, how time flies! It was easy to stay in shape when I was in my 30’s. I was fitness professional and aerobic exercise instructor back then, but all that took it’s toll on my body. I also started Olympic style weightlifting competitively in my mid-thirty’s and pretty soon I realized that teaching all those aerobic classes was not good for my joints. I continued personal training for a while, but I dropped teaching aerobic classes. The weightlifting kept me in shape through my mid 50’s.

But now that I’m in my late 50’s things have changed, it takes longer to recuperate from workouts, and little injuries take longer to heal and are a more annoying! I’ve finally stopped weightlifting for a little while for 2 reasons: To give my body a break and because now I’m busier than I ever was before and I’m finding it hard to find the time (and the energy) for the type of training I used to do. And I know that there are a lot of people – young and old alike who are in that position, So I wanted to share with you a couple of things that I have found to help me stay in shape…

Here’s a quick fix and a long term solution to get in shape for the holidays… no gym membership required!

Get healthier and flatten you belly in only a few days, without dieting and without excessive exercise… HERE’S HOW.

Then once you’ve flattened that belly, stay in great shape by making some simple changes to your diet and adding a short easy exercise program only 3 times a week, that doesn’t require a gym membership or any special equipment. Click Here to watch this free video and learn more.

Gluten Free, Is It Safe For Me?

Gluten, Are You Confused?

While doing research on the effects of Gluten with my partner, Chris Goclan, he found this article by Dr. Weil. The article finally cleared up the confusion that the previous articles caused and answered some personal questions. Dr. Weil was asked a question:

“I know I don’t have celiac disease (I’ve been tested), but I think that some of my health problems including headaches and fatigue are due to a sensitivity to gluten. Do you think a gluten-free diet would help?” Read More→
