How is your support system?

We are one month into the new year, how are you doing with your overall health with what you may have committed to for 2011? What are your challenges, what is easier than you thought, what is harder?
Here is what I see what most people have struggles with. One is a clear defined goal they have made for them selves. Two, a worked out plan of attack, and three a lack of support or follow through.
First of all if you are having any struggles just Diget a piece of paper out and on the left side write out what is working and on the right write down what isn’t working. Then keep doing what is working. Keep it simple. How are you eating better, how are you moving better, how are you thinking better, do you have a good social support system?

Think summer

Here is a quick review.

1. Diet: An anti-inflammatory diet. Cut the GRAINS since they are inflammatory to your cells. keep your foods to leans meats, chicken fish, and get as much grass fed organic meats over grain fed meats. Eat tons of vegetables, stone fruits, and nuts and seeds. There is no grain or dairy or soy or yeast in this diet.

2. Exercise. Combine aerobic and resistance training. 3 days of aerobic and 3 days of resistance. Start slow and don’t over do it. You will progressively get aerobically fitter and get stronger. The key is consistancy!

3. Attitude. Believe in your self, follow through and affirm to your self how much better you are getting each and every time you eat, move, and think better

4. Surround your self with others. Group classes are great if you have a hard time working out on your own. Involve your family with what you are trying to do and that is to be HEALTHIER!! Don;’t just focus on so much weight, or inches. The bottom line is 6 months, 12 months from now you will be healthier

5. Dont forget, regular Chiropractic adjustments to keep your body working in tip top shape. You wouldn’t drive your car around out of balance or not put oil in to it. You body is a temple so do not neglect it because it will come back to haunt you.

Never give up on your self.

When will winter end? It’s been a tough one. Keep plugging through it. I like to get a good workout outside and envision my self on a Hawaiian beach while I’m working out in below temp windchills.

Until next time make February a pivotal month in you becoming healthier!! Dr. E

  • The keys to success in life.

    Confuscious said the key to success in life is "when you fall down 8 times, you get up 9 times". Most people quit things after the 3rd or 4th fall and make more excuses. Just hang in there and keep moving forward inspite of all the obstacles.. That is why I love sports so much because you c
  • Are you ready for some football?

    Tonight is the night when people in Wisconsin really go nuts over their Green Bay Packers. I was driving back from my first rollerski of the year and saw this blown up packer mascot in someone's driveway. It's interesting how close we are to the Twin Cities but I'd say it's 70% Packer fans to 30%
  • No More Shootings.

    While I keep many of my political views to myself this is one I want to express as my own personal and professional opinion on the recent shootings at the Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown Ct. Why would someone have an AK47? I've deer hunted for 30 years and all my guns are at my neighbo

  • Spring is here!

    I'm going to officially say that spring is here.  I judge that by not only how wonderful the sun feels on my face but when my ski's start to get mushy in the snow I know it's jsut a matter of time and there won't be any more snow to ski on.  OK, the Birkie is done for this year, so now I can f
