August Camps Begin on August 1 and 2 / by Stephen Cooper

This has been a busy month.  I was at a big fitness conference for 5 days.  I'll be sharing some details of what I learned here on the blog, but here are some of the main points.

1.  Move - be it Zumba, mountain biking, dancing, etc..  Experiment and see what fits with your personality.  You've got to find something that will keep your interest, and that you can do frequently.

2.  Lift weights - Don't depend on attending a class to burn calories or lose weight.  Build a "muscular" body so that you burn calories all day long.

3.  Eat smart - Eat a wide variety of proteins, vegetables, nuts/seeds, healthy fats, and fruit.  Your specific needs depend on your level of activity.  Don't overthink this.  If you think it's junk, it probably is and is best to avoid it.

4.  Sleep - You are brighter, stronger, faster, have a stronger immunity, less chance of obesity and diabetes (and more), if you get proper sleep.  Get into an evening ritual of winding down, and getting off the gadgets.  (Treat yourself like a little kid, from the good old days...taking a bath, changing into comfy sleep attire, and reading a positive story.)

You must take care of you.  Stop the excuses.
