Immune System

THE IMMUNE SYSTEM. When it’s all said and done, it’s all we got as protection against the outside world. This will NEVER change, even if times like these remind us more than ever. The same “things to do” for improving health also improve the immune system: Quality rest. Eating a variety of fruits, veggies, herbs, spices,etc. Regular exercise. Adequate hydration. Managing Stress. Managing stress is a vast subject. This may require professional help. Anything lacking or in excess could be interpreted as stress by the body. That could include something like too little or too much exercise, too little or too much time alone and too little or too much sunshine. The key here is balance, as with everything in life. Obviously extreme anger, fear, sadness and over-working could cause some very serious issues. One area not mentioned enough is breathing and oxygen. We obviously need it. So avoid things that cause unwanted interruptions in breathing, again things like unchecked anger and fear. Lastly, yes be careful with germs. Use common sense here. Obviously, eliminating germs altogether would be impossible and quite possibly even unwise. Too much is dangerous. Too little? This may be dangerous as well. Find a balance. Listen to your body. Take care of your health. Your life, or someone you love, may depend on it. #coronavirüsü #immunesystem #healthfirst #austinpersonaltrainer #austinpersonaltraining #austinpersonaltrainers #sleepquality #fruitsandveggieseveryday #regularexercise #managingstress #managinganxiety #deepbreathing #deepbreathingexercises #blueskystrongbox

There are so many cookbooks. Why? Many of us have a romantic view of cooking and eating tasty things we brewed up ourselves. But many of us barely have the time to eat some days let alone cook. It only makes sense that cooking at home be kept easy and simple. It should also be reasonably healthy and save more money than eating out. It should also be relaxing, fun and enjoyable. If you don’t know who JAMIE OLIVER is, check him out. I love ‘em. He’s passionate about getting people to cook and does everything he can to inspire others to do so regularly while keeping things tasty, simple, affordable and enjoyable. He has a few books out there, some of which i have yet to see but I’m sure all equally great. This one in particular is wonderful. (FYI-His TED TALK is worth the time.) With so many choices these days I just wanted to point out a bright star in an ever expanding sky full of things that often glitter but are rarely gold. Thank you @jamieoliver for all you do. #bssbbooks #jamieoliver5ingredients #jamieoliver #jamieoliver15minutemeals #jamieoliverquickandeasyfood #blueskystrongbox

SAVING MONEY & FAT LOSS

Fat Loss & Saving Money ideas…

March 6, 2020

View this post on Instagram

FAT LOSS & SAVING MONEY. Two things that I would argue most adults in developed nations deeply desire. What do they both have in common? A lot actually. Both losing body fat and saving money require focus and discipline. They also demand consistency. Both tend to improve quality of life (up to a certain point). Doing both at the same time may actually compliment each other in many ways. Next week, I’ll talk some more about this. For now, marinate on this whole idea. Try to keep an open mind. Work diligently to cultivate, strengthen and adapt it to new ways of thinking. The mind is the first “muscle” to fire. In the words of Stephen Covey, author of “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”, always go for the “Win/Win” when possible. #bssbbooks #savingmoney #financialtips #fatloss #fatlosstips #austinpersonaltrainer #austinpersonaltraining #austinpersonaltrainers #carltonsmixtapegumbo #blueskystrongbox

Don’t Forget to take INVENTORY…

Don’t forget to take inventory. In other words, check in with yourself. How are you doing with your Goals? Only you know the answer. It may help to be accountable to someone or at the least an app on your phone. It’s ok if you’re not perfect. Just be clear about why that is. Is it a one time thing or a reoccurring problem? If there is an issue, address it with success in mind. If you don’t know, seek help. Seek solutions. The point is to remember that each day matters with regards to progress towards any goal. Expect delays but expect success as well. Follow the plan that takes you on the shortest distance from Point A to your Point B and on to Z. #accountability #nutrition #regularexercise #qualityrest #austinpersonaltrainer #austinpersonaltraining #austinpersonaltrainers #blueskystrongbox

STRENGTH TRAINING with 2 EXERCISES (Part II)

February 14, 2020

View this post on Instagram

Last week I demonstrated three short, simple full body resistance training workouts using only 2 exercises for each. This is part II of last week. The point of all this is to 1) emphasize the importance Strength Training for adults 2) Demonstrate how short AND simple it can be 3) Inspire others to do something. Sure, we could all do nothing. But each of knows that is a really bad option. Why Strength Train? It helps with everything, literally. Fat loss? Yes. Muscle Gain? Yes. Heal from an injury? Yes. Improve health? Yes. Improve durability and usefulness? Yes, yes. Improve bone density? Yes. Improve chances of living happier longer. YES. You don’t need to exercise long or extremely intensely. A little done in the middle goes a long way. #strengthtraining #resistancetraining #longevity #austinpersonaltrainer #austinpersonaltraining #austinpersonaltrainers #healthylifestyle #blueskystrongbox

Not all Body Fat is created equal…

February 7, 2020

Not all body fat is created equal. The stuff on the outside and directly under the skin is called Subcutaneous Fat. The stuff on the inside is called Visceral Fat. The inside fat is more dangerous. Unfortunately, when we gain weight we increase both kinds. The good news is, when we lose body fat, especially by improving nutrition, caloric intake and exercising regularly, we decrease both kinds. It’s about so much more than the way we look. Take care of your body and it will take care of you. We only get one. #bodyfat #visceralfat #subcutaneousfat #healthyfatloss #healthynutrition #precisionnutrition #austinpersonaltrainer #austinpersonaltraining #austinpersonaltrainers #bssbbooks #blueskystrongbox
