We just got back from skiing Mammoth (yes it’s June and yes they have THE most snow in the country still). All of the ski teams are there practicing from Colorado, Utah, etc. This gorgeous lake is on the way home. I thought you might enjoy this photo!
Thank you Julianna Hever, MS, RD, CPT for keeping us all abreast of the latest in nutrition!
This is vital, important information for Americans especially. And with the Keto trend not losing strength, please be so careful with everything you eat. I always say ‘It’s so short in your mouth but long on/in your body’. AND you can change habits gradually if you want it bad enough. It’s worth it!
I get SO many questions about nutrition, popular diets and trends. I follow Julianna, aka the ‘plant dietician’, on all social media. She is one very qualified expert who can provide us all with the real truth about healthy eating.
Here’s my super quick, easy, healthy, tasty lunch (veggie burger) in between clients. You get a sense of accomplishment when you cook for yourself. Plus, I love taking good care of my health!
I wanted to show you perfect form for a squat from a side view. My knees are at 90 degrees which is a safer ROM than just going to 80, 85 degrees if your ankles, knees and hips are flexible enough. In fact, I explain everything in my latest article for Online Harbour above.
Please check it out. Thanks!
Here I’m demonstrating a great way to fully target all of the muscle fibers of the hip flexor muscle group. Since some of the muscle fibers attach to the spine, I’m laterally flexing to the opposite side.
If you don’t have a ball, simply lean your hand on your knee. Be sure to lean forward of the right knee seen here. Plus you can pulse gently. Hold about 20-30 seconds.
The hip flexors can get tight with athletics especially running and cycling. They can also tighten up and shorten if you sit a lot. The danger is that when this happens, it can affect the mechanics of your lower back and manifest in pain and discomfort. I hope this is helpful!
Enjoy your day!
After my sand run, I make this quick and easy little mixture. I use the Vega pea protein powder and add fresh, cold brewed tea, an organic apple, fresh ginger, some greens and a sprinkle of cinnamon, all organic. Voila! I’ll drink a glass and save some for later when I’m feeling empty and hungry. It does the trick!
