My 8-Week Birthday Photo Shoot Challenge
I’m about to turn 42 years old, and I want to keep pushing myself to make fitness gains. It isn’t enough to maintain: For as long as you can grow, you should. To keep myself going, and to show how good my program is, I have designed a fitness challenge for myself using my INTEGRE8T Wellness program as the template.
Good morning! It is June 2, 2018. It is the end of Week 5, so it’s time to check in and see how I did.
Okay, so here’s Week 5. I would like to point out that the line here is completely visible now. I don’t have to touch it or anything, and you can see this line all the way across here now without me touching it at all – and this one will catch up. This side is always a little bit slower than this one, so… I don’t know if I’ll ever get quite that lean, but I’ll strive for it.
The pads here are smaller, not quite as flat I’d like. Back here, this is pretty smooth. I’d still like ultimately for this to completely flatten out here, and for these lines to disappear completely.
So I’m getting there. Otherwise everything is showing up good. I have a little bit of an arm injury, so I missed out on my workouts a little bit. But as you see – end of Week 5 – I’m getting pretty close.
Glycemic Index vs Glycemic Load
This score indicates how damaging a food will be to your blood sugar levels. Foods that score 0-55 are rated low impact (and thus presumed to be better for diabetics and those looking to maintain healthy weight and/or body fat ratios), but this is not the whole picture.
Caffeine: 14 better options to ease SAD
Nearly a year ago to the dot, I wrote an article about Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), but there I focused on the importance of getting access to a full range spectrum of light. Here I’d like to focus on caffeine and sleep’s effect on SAD. I’ll also offer suggestions for what to do to help you feel better on the dark days.
Avoid fish oil supplements
I don’t generally promote supplements. Most of them play to specific, isolated points of medical research to serve as a magic pill. One remarkable example of this is fish oil.
