In Your Corner: Happy 239th Birthday USA

On July 4th the United States of America will be 239. And what an amazing country history we have had. Built into the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution which was signed over eleven years later on Sept. 17, 1787 was truth, wisdom, a caring for fellow men (hence a trial by jury, rather than “off with his head”) and a desire “to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence [sic] promote general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity (future generations).” (http://constitutionus.com) The ideals were broad enough to allow for a changing future.

An angel on Kauai, touching lives one by one

Some people are born with a mission and purpose. My life has been dedicated to helping people be as healthy as they can be. Simply, I was born to be a fitness trainer and a nutritional coach. I have a new friend who was born to be a beacon of hope to people whose lives have been touched by drug, alcohol or cigarette addiction. She has written three booklets dealing with the subjects and has collected stories from those who want to help others by telling of their personal journeys.

Addressing racism and praying for racial peace

I started out to write that June is National Safety Month. I clicked onto the National Safety Council website (www.nsc.org) and discovered two very interesting things. One is that the incidences of people having accidents while walking and texting has risen so much, that it was included for the first time in the National Safety Council’s report that tracks data on unintentional accidents. So walk carefully if you’re texting!

Here’s the latest skinny on obesity from Harvard researchers

The T.H. Chan School of Public Health at Harvard researchers have done some very interesting studies on weight training and controlling obesity. They found that because aging is associated with sarcopenia, that is loss of skeletal muscle, just doing aerobic exercises is insufficient to keep the pounds off and stay healthy. They note that measuring the waist circumference is one of the best indicators of a healthy body composition among aging adults, and that combining resistance training with aerobic exercise or even just engaging in resistance exercise helps adults lessen abdominal fat while increasing or at least preserving muscle mass. The Harvard study was a 12-year study with over 10,000 participants and it clearly indicated that weight training is key in keeping the waistline trim, and is more effective than simply doing aerobic exercise.

Celebrating you, dad!

Father’s Day is this Sunday. If you haven’t found the gift yet you want to give, this article might help.

I’ll briefly review the five ways that marriage counselor Dr. Gary Chapman wrote about in his book, “The 5 Love Languages,” and offer some hints and suggestions specifically for your dad.
