Does Blood Type Determine What Foods You Should Eat?

0

Have you ever heard of Eating for your Blood Type? I’ve been doing some looking into eating certain kinds of foods and the effect they have on different people and thought this was an interesting idea. There are some out there that say it has no effect – but I would imagine it has at least a little. They have proven that certain blood types are more prone to certain diseases, so why wouldn’t your genetic makeup and blood type have some effect on how your body responds to food. It’s definitely interesting…

Friendship: Age Is Just A Number

0

- Live Fit and Sore

Yesterday, I met up with two of my dearest friends. One of the greatest things my fitness journey has brought into my life is the opportunity to meet some amazing people. Lani and Liz are two of those people I met almost three years ago at CrossFit. We will not see each other for a while and go have lunch and pick up right where we left off. They make me laugh, help me see life with a different perspective and definitely ‘get’ me.

I sometimes ‘worry’ about the fact that many of my friends are quite a bit younger than me. When you are so active in the fitness community, I think you attract a younger group of people into your life. I don’t feel my age and I don’t think I look my age, so it only makes sense that many of the people I hang out with are younger. I don’t necessarily see age when I am with others — although there are definitely times when it becomes abundantly clear I am from a different era.

I think everyone should have some group of friends who are younger – It keeps you on your toes and offers you a fresher perspective on life experiences.  It’s when you start to dress like you are their age and/or stop relating to your husband or friends your age that there is an issue.

I like to think I am their older sister –and they certainly don’t make me feel like there is something wrong -it’s just more of a self awareness I have about my circle of friends lately.

Day 2 of sharing things I am thankful for:

  • I’m thankful for my brothers and sisters. We are all different yet so much the same, have each other’s backs no matter the case, and are happy and healthy human beings.
  • I’m thankful for good friends who understand and ‘get’ my passionate personality.
  • I’m thankful for good music. A good beat can uplift me any time of the day.

What Are You Thankful For?

0

I was nominated by my friend Marcia to share 3 things I’m thankful for daily for the next 5 days. Away I go…

  1. 1. I’m thankful for my husband – who is un-falteringly kind, supportive and my biggest cheerleader.
  2. 2. I’m thankful for my health. Having seen first hand what a serious illness can do to a body and spirit, I appreciate the benefits good health brings.
  3. 3. I’m thankful for my kiddos. I won the jackpot when it comes to those two. As challenging as parenting can be, I wouldn’t trade it in for anything.

Want to Lift Your Mood? Keep Learning

1

Stephanie Hoaglund - August 2014 - Live Fit and Sore!I’ve been really busy with the new gig which is a double edged sword. I’m sure things will settle down and I will get into a routine once again, especially with the kiddos about to head back to school week after next.

It’s definitely true that learning new things keeps your brain sharp and can lighten your mood. As big of an adjustment going back to work is – I am definitely feeling re-energized and my mood has lightened. I am dead tired by the end of the day and am missing my daily nap, but those are things that will even out.  My new gig is in an industry that I know very little about, so I’ve been attending lots of meetings to start to understand and make sense of it all and I am finding it really interesting. Dare I say I am getting excited again…

Being Less Judgmental Day to Day

0

Be Curious, Not JudgmentalI came across a blog post by one of my CrossFit friends who runs Craic in MA – and it enhanced a previous blog post I wrote last week – how not judging others is one of the hardest behaviors for so many of us to do. Think about all the ways you judge things in the course of a day. A few examples like the weather, your outfit, how you feel, your hair – you make judgments on those things before you even leave you house in the morning.  John writes:

“If your goal is lasting change then it’s going to take work. It doesn’t matter if you want the body of your dreams, more money in your bank account, a more fulfilling career, or in this case – to be more accepting of others for the choices they make.”

And that’s what I am trying to do — with a new job, new people to meet, I have decided to put my best foot forward and make some changes to how I react and respond in certain situations. The other day I was showing someone pictures from Facebook and they immediately made a comment about the way someone looked and I challenged them about it.  It’s easy to sit back and decide who someone is without really considering what walking in their shoes may be like.

Here’s another good post about judging: Judge Not. Failing That? Learn A Lot. that may offer some insight. To be less judgmental day to day definitely takes awareness, practice and work, which is probably why many of us choose to focus on other goals.

Sweet Potatoes: Nutritious and Delicious

0

I’ve been boxing for a while now and am really getting into it. I can see more definition and I am leaning out. And I am not having any nagging shoulder impingement issues either. A lot of it has to do with not lifting heavy shit over my head which is Ok with me.  I love that it’s not just boxing either –this morning we did some agility drills with the ladder and then finished the workout with suicide sprints outside.

On the nutrition side, I’ve been eating a lot of sweet potatoes lately – I buy an bag of organic ones at Wegmans weekly. I didn’t realize how good they are for you – they have massive amounts of beta carotene, fiber, and important vitamins and minerals.

Four Tips To Live A Happier Life

0

4 AgreementsI came across this list from the book The Four Agreements. I think we would all agree that these 4 tips are a good road map for anyone but like most everything, not always the easiest to always act upon. But we should all at least try to live by them…

  1. 1. Be impeccable with your word.
  2. 2. Don’t take anything personally.
  3. 3. Don’t make assumptions.
  4. 4. Always do your best. 

I’m off to start my second week at my new job  - so far so good. It’s been an energizing experience so far and I am learning a lot – which is something that I love to do.
