January 2015

January is the perfect time of year to start fresh. With the stress of the holidays behind us, and the pressure of making poor food choices a distant memory, this is your opportunity to make better decisions regarding your health and well-being. Without sounding cliché, this IS my favorite time of the year to start exercising and eating better. I suddenly have more free time to workout, and more control over eating the food that I want to eat.

This is also when I plan my year; personal, business, financial, etc. I do set goals, and have a plan to reach them. I find it refreshing to be back on a schedule, and have a routine. And setting intentions is a big part of reaching my goals in a realistic way.

Full Body, Post-Holiday Cleanse & Detox!
Dr. Brenda Trudell, DC

For a number of years now, I have been detoxing and cleansing my body, and writing about my experiences. I began doing them in the spring of 2010, sort of as a “spring cleaning” of my entire body. The first time I did this, I lost some weight and it started me on a body transformation and a new way of eating and living. Sometimes I do them in the fall, as a way to jumpstart my immune system before the cold and flu season is upon us. I have also done them in January, right after the indulgence and splurging of the holiday season. I have personally found that this is my absolute favorite time of the year to do a cleanse, and I will explain why.

I love to eat healthy, I really honestly do. But I also love sweets…and comfort food…and gravy…and everything else we shouldn’t really love but secretly do. I enjoy cooking and feeding my body what it craves. So, in November and December, I like to enjoy my holiday favorites guilt-free. This may mean gaining a few pounds, having skin breakouts, needing to wear stretchy pants, etc., but I allow myself to indulge. Then, on January 2nd, I begin a full-body detox and cleanse to purge all the garbage that has been floating in my system, to boost my immune system warding off the flu, colds, stomach bugs, strep throat, and sinus infections, and to really connect with food in a different way than I just did the previous two months. I also do not look at it like a diet, or a New Year’s resolution, but as a way to eat healthy to feed my body, not to fit into a certain size of pants. But I have to say, I do always make a trip to Florida in February to visit my mom, so having that as motivation does help.

For the full cleanse, continue here.


Working Out While Sick?
Christopher Kazda

I am often asked my thoughts on working out while experiencing sickness. A sore throat, achy muscles, fever, nausea, and a runny nose can make you miserable, but if you still have the energy to exercise, should you? Aside from being contagious to everyone else around you, what's the real danger? The good news is that if you are currently a fit person, you will tend to recover from illnesses quicker and experience milder symptoms than those who are inactive.

If you feel as if you're coming down with a garden-variety cold, you can still exercise without significant limitations. If you begin to feel worse after your workout, however, cut back. Take a few days off or reduce your effort to 50 percent of your normal capacity; walk for 15 minutes instead of running for 30 minutes, do one set of lifting instead of five. Also keep in mind the above-the-neck rule: if your symptoms include a runny nose, dry cough, or sneezing, you should be fine to exercise. Rest if your symptoms are below the neck, such a chest congestion, muscle aches, upset stomach, etc.
