Thanks for conveniently posting these articles towards the end of the week. I'll feel real good about boozing this weekend
1 year ago on Drink to Your Health: Why Alcohol Is Good For You
Nice post. I'm definitely someone who is organized (most of the time) and who schedules things out, but I've formed some habits like always picking up the phone and checking my email constantly. I don't want to blame technology because I think it makes my life more efficient, but it can be a distraction. Having a constant news feed (Twitter) and receiving 50-100 emails day I feel are the biggest reasons I am late for things. I've been really focusing on trying to ignore my iPhone to I'm at least out the door.

I've always been told it's ok to have a something high in protein before bed if you need to satisfy a craving. It helps your muscles when your body metabolizes the protein you consumed during the day. I'll eat some cashews, almonds or drink a small shake even right before bed

1 year ago on How to Make a Workout Plan (And Stick to It!)
@50by25 Hey Laura, I do a full workout 4 days a week and 2 45 mins days of core and circuit training. I also joined GymPact and I'm signed up for the Tough Mudder which motivates me. Besides that I don't have any secret tips. The biggest thing is that no matter how tired/unmotivated I am, once I am done with my workout I'll feel great. It's a mental hump if you can learn to get over it makes a huge difference. Congrats to you are your 50 Marathons in 50 states, did you run the Boston Marathon?
@DavidThomasTao Hi David, Great question. Most of the time I warm. If I have a lot of energy and I'm there for a full workout then I start with 30-45min of jump roping/ core exercise. Then I do about an hour to 1.5 hour workout...of course this is time permitting. You'll notice a huge difference in your exercise routine if you do a core muscle warm up
I find that getting there is always the most difficult part and even making through the front door isn't enough. Recently when I've been going to the gym when I'm the most tired, I'll do a light jog, jump rope or do core exercises for about 5 -15mins. The pre-workout warm makes a huge difference and gives me a boost to complete the rest of my planned workout.
