Are you brave enough to answer "how many times a day? week? month?

In a study that was released this month it stated that many Americans just don't get it  enough.
Are you one of them?  Before you begin wondering what in fact we're talking about.  The study stated that only 6% of Americans are getting enough vegetables in their daily diet.  And only about 8% are consuming the recommended daily helping of fruits!  Astounding right?  Well, answer the question listed above in the title.  How many times a day are you consuming fruits and veggies?  I bet the answer is interesting......: )

Some of you may say, "I take vitamins so I don't need to eat that stuff, I don't like it".  Vitamins are awesome....AS A SUPPLEMENT to what your body gets NATURALLY.  There is so much value (anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals) in all of our fruits and vegetables.

Here's a few tips to increase your intake:
1.  Need a mid-afternoon snack?  Instead of grabbing chips from the vending machine, pack some carrots or an apple instead.
2. Color code your meals.  The more colorful the better!  Add fruits and veggies to breakfast lunch and dinner by using reds (tomatoes or red peppers), blues (blueberries or grapes) and especially greens (kale greens, mixed green salad or cabbage).
3.  Add fresh or frozen fruit into your desserts.  You can add strawberries,blueberries, raspberries, craisins, bananas into frozen yogurt or sherbert (for an extra pop add some granola). Be creative!

Happy, Healthy Thanksgiving!

Holiday season is here and I know we are all looking forward to those huge holiday meals! Unfortunately, no one wants extra lbs as part of their New Years Eve outfit. This blog will help you step into the meal prepared with some do’s and don’ts for the Turkey Day.

-Get a in some exercise Thanksgiving morning.  Yes, it's a holiday but no need for a break!  Take a brisk walk, run or another fun activity that you and perhaps the family would love to enjoy.

-prepare your dishes, always using light, low fat, and fat free healthy substitutes. For example, substitute 1 egg for 2 egg whites,  fat-free yogurt for sour cream, fat free chicken broth for gravy, use sugar substitutes and wheat breads instead of white

- look online to get ideas on how to provide several delicious healthy side dishes, desserts, and even main turkey dishes!

-stick to white skinless pieces when choosing which piece of turkey to eat.  This is an excellent source of protein.

-Skip seconds and opt for dessert instead!

-Choose yummy fall vegetables.  They will give your plate color while filling you up on fewer calories.  Try new foods - don't waste calories on food you can have all year (like bread)

-Leave the LEFTOVERS!!!!  No need to take those extra calories home with you!  Remember they rarely leave!!

-Go into your Thanksgiving meal hungry- that could be your worst downfall. Drink plenty of water before and during the meal.

-Heap huge servings of each dish on your plate.  Instead pretend that you are taste-testing each dish.
-fill up on creamy, cheesy and fried dishes that you know are high in fat.
- fill up on canned fruits and vegetables. These are high in sodium and the taste is not even close to the real thing.  Opt for fresh berries, baked apples and other fresh fruit instead.

Really focus on the flavors of this Thanksgiving meal. The meaning of Thanksgiving is not about stuffing yourself, but appreciating the food you do have.
Focus on family and friends during the meal instead of the food. Help clean up and take a nice walk after the meal. This will give you some extra bonding time and really allow you to give thanks for your loved ones!

Thank You vets! - Happy Veterans Day!

This afternoon as I was picking up my two youngest and walking them to our special corner of campus to begin homework Dylan, my youngest, begins explaining the origins of the Thanksgiving holiday.  "Did you know", she says, "that the Pilgrims didn't even have turkey at the first Thanksgiving?".  I act shocked and say, "What, you mean all these years, I've been eating turkey and it's been a sham!"  She laughs and says, "Yeah".  I said, "isn't it cool though, that if we want we could even eat pizza on Thanksgiving?"  Excitedly, both of my youngest kids said "YEAH!".  And Logan adds, "so take that Pilgrims".

It's a small blessing, but I'm thankful that I live in a country where my choices, continue to remain my choices!  This is not a political stance, but an opportunity for me to reflect and teach my children, that even with the smallest of privileges that price was paid by someone else that came before you. 

So today, and everyday, to our veterans everywhere I want to say THANK YOU!

Happy Veteran's Day from MEMfit!

Did you know that when you drink a Gatorade you are actually ingesting 14 grams of sugar? Or that Vitamin Water contains 13 grams of sugar and 50 calories per serving? That equals 125 calories in one drink. We all know sodas are full of sugars and calories, but most drinks are very sneaky in hiding their sugars. This is easily done through deceptive advertising and marketing. Most people are unaware about the hidden calories in many drinks including juices and “waters.” Check out the following to see how your favorite drink may stack up. This might be a wake up call!

Coca-Cola (12 oz) 39 g sugar
Amp Energy Drink (8.4 oz) 31 g sugar
Arizona Iced Tea (8 oz) 24 g sugar
Apple Juice (8 oz) 26 g sugar
Chocolate Milk (8 oz) 24 g sugar
Gatorade (8 oz) 14 g sugar
Ginger Ale (12 oz) 33 g sugar
Full Throttle (16 oz) 58 g sugar
Lipton Iced Tea (12 oz) 33 g sugar
Minute Maid Orange Juice (8 oz) 24 g sugar
Monster (16 oz) 54 g sugar
Mountain Dew (12 oz) 47 g sugar
Nestea Iced Tea (16 oz) 34 g sugar
Pepsi (12 oz) 40 g sugar
Powerade (8 oz) 14 g sugar
Red Bull (8.34 oz) 24 g sugar
Rockstar (16 oz) 60 g sugar
Snapple Tea (16 oz) 36 g sugar
Sobe (8 oz) 29 g sugar
Sprite (12 oz) 39 g sugar
Starbucks Bottled Frapp (9.5 oz) 33 g sugar
Vitamin Water (8 oz) 13 g sugar
                       (20 oz) 33 g sugar

Look for the following "buzz words" on the ingredient list, then step away because it is a sneaky name for sugar in a calorie-sweetened beverage!

- high fructose corn syrup
- fructose
- sucrose
- dextrose
- fruit juice concentrates
- honey
- sugar
- syrup
- corn syrup

You now can be your very own detective! Start picking up the bottles and examine the nutrition labels. Make sure you check out the serving size! Some drinks can have up to 3 servings causing you to ingest 100s of calories! In the end, water is always the best option!

Trick or Treats?

So Halloween is coming up and I know everyone is salivating at the thought of digging into some serious sweets without packing on the unwanted pounds. Can this possibly happen? The answer is YES! You can still enjoy Halloween while also enjoying your waistline. Here are some helpful tips to a healthier Halloween.

Tips to prepare for Halloween night:
 Set a healthy example for your family. Halloween is only one day so if you are going to treat yourself, make sure you’ve already had a healthy meal and have been drinking plenty of water so you don’t fill up on sweets

 Put the candy and snacks out of sight until Halloween day. Preparing for Halloween night doesn’t mean you have to partake prior to the day. Use it as a reward for working hard all week.

 Having a party? Set a healthier menu. You could carve out pumpkins and place healthy dips in them such as hummus or salsa or offer seasonal fruits instead of sugar-loaded candy

 Workout the morning of Halloween or get a good workout in by taking your kids trick or treating on a challenging neighborhood route (hills). Don’t have kids? Offer to babysit or grab some friends and walk the neighborhood for some good physical activity

 Focus on creative ideas instead of candy to pass out at the door. Some ideas are sugar free candy, granola bites, temporary tattoos, toys, false teeth, etc. The possibilities are endless. *

 Sort through the candy, tossing out the definite no-no’s.

Consider the following candy swaps when indulging on Halloween night.
1. Fun size bars: Instead of Butterfinger (100 cals) eat 3 Musketeers (63 cals)
2. Fruity candy: Instead of Air Heads (3 at 140 cals) eat Dum Dum Pops (3 at 77 cals)
3. Miniature candy bar: Instead of Twix bar (3 at 150 cals) eat Tootsie rolls (3 at 70 cals)
4. Chewy candy: Instead of Milk Maid Caramels (4 at 160 cals) eat Now and Later (4 at 53 cals)

Try these healthy recipes for Halloween Night:
Baked Pumpkin Seeds
Instead of throwing away the seeds after carving your pumpkins, bake them for a healthy treat!

Clean and separate the pumpkin seeds. Preheat the oven to 350ยบ. Put the seeds on baking pan. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 10 minutes, take them out and stir the seeds. Bake again for another 10 minutes until golden brown. Let them cool and they are ready to eat! You can experiment by adding different spices to them once cooled.

Orange Jack-o-lanterns
Make your own Jack-o-lanterns the healthy way. All you need are oranges, fruit cocktail, and a sharpie!

Cut the tops off the oranges as if you were carving a pumpkin. Scoop out the orange, being careful not to rip the peel. Add the orange to the fruit cup and mix. Using the sharpie, decorate the orange and set aside to dry. Scoop the fruit mixture into the oranges and chill for an hour before serving.

*Healthy snacks to pass out at the door:
Sugar-free candy or gum, rice krispy treats, granola bars, homemade trail mix, small bag of pretzels, nuts, raisins, popcorn, or cereal, graham crackers/ginger snaps/vanilla wafers, stickers, toys, false teeth, temporary tattoos, tiny card deck/games, yo-yo’s

What's up playas!

Ok, so.....I just couldn't of another cool way to start the email!  Go figure! 

I'm so excited to get started again with the October/November boot camp.  I am really looking forward to the new workouts, equipment and , best of all, CAMPERS!  A few notes to remember:

1.  Please remember to hydrate before, during and after camp!  Gatorade/Powerade drinks are fine, but I like good ole' fashioned water.  Does the job just fine!

2.  EAT SOMETHING - No matter if you're attending camp before work or after.  Contrary to popular belief, food is more than our companions!  Your body actually needs food to function, so make sure that to get the battery going, you put the right thing into it so it can perform for you.

3.  Give me a heads up if you won't be attending camp.  Not a big deal.  Emergencies come up, and we certainly understand that, but so we can plan accordingly please let us know!

4.  If you need to contact me at anytime, you may call me at 901-283-0864 or email at info@mem-fit.com.  (You may also text to the above mentioned number).

1 minute stations
In between a set, we incorporated lateral movements and sprints.  And as always....finished up with abdominals

WOD 8/31/10 -

Something for Nothing

Just the sound of that sounds good to me... to receive something for nothing.  It's like walking into the grocery store (Sam's Club specifically) on a Saturday morning and learning that not only are they giving out samples, but they are giving the really good ones.  You know, the ones where they cook up those little sandwhich samples and they give you like half!  Or if the worker is in a good mood, she might just let you take a whole one.  That is like .....ahhhhh!  I love getting something for nothing.
BUT that's not this journey!
Waking up before the sun or busting out a bearcrawl and some jump squats after a hard day's work in the 100 degree heat, deserves nothing short of a great big.....SOMETHING. Like what, I could promise you something tangible,like a massage or a gift card somewhere, but the results that you will see, or begin to see is something much more valuable than that.  My friend you have embarked upon taking your life back.  Taking your health back.  Taking your fitness back.  And that is something.  And you certainly know by now that aren't doing something for nothing.

"Having a Ball" and 2 Minutes of Heaven

WOD Tuesday 8/24

We split up into teams and had a competition using a tennis ball.

This game would have been more appealing and probably a lot more fun if it had the OTHER "2 Minutes of Heaven", but who's counting minutes.

WOD - 2 Minutes of Heaven
Campers are divided into 4-5 separate groups.  Each group begins with a different exercise.  Exercises are as follows:
Slam Ball or Medicin Ball throws
Mountain Climbers
Jump Rope
5-sec Jump Squats

Each of these exercises are performed for 2 minutes with 1 minute rest in between.

Hmmmmm.....Good times, good times : )

Week 3 - Lets get it!

The beginning of Week 3 and it's been intense.  I can say that we can send up prayers and thanks to the universe for the cooler weather that we're experiencing.  Ahhhhhhhhh.  It's been so nice! 

Monday WOD -
Team Game " You Decide"
Each Team has to obtain a total of 50 points by completing the following:
5 pointers - 25 Burpees, 60 Up/Downs or Double Suicide
3 pointers - Mountain Climbers, Inchworm or
2 pointers - 25 step ups,
1 pointers - 20 JJ, 20 PU and 15 lunges

Will you make it to 50?.........YOU DECIDE

Thursday, August 12, 2010

In the words of Ice Cube "today was a good day".  We did partner excercises after a riveting game of "Monkey in the Middle".  I can't stress how important it is to adequately prepare for camp by getting enough rest, eating a proper meal and drinking plenty of water during the day AND during camp.

"Game" - Monkey in the Middle

Partner excercises - Alternate with your partner in completing 30 reps, 20 reps and 10-reps.  Exercises to choose from.....situps, bridges, pushups, plank (for count) and finally jumping jacks/jills.
Ex. -  Partner 1 completes 30 reps of situps, Partner 2 completes 30 reps of situps
Partner 1 completes 20 reps of stiups, Partner 2 completes 20 reps of situps
Partner1 completes 10 reps of situps, Partner 2 completes 10 reps of situps.  Then move on to next exercise.
Have fun!

Workout 8/11/10

Today's workout:

6AM - Run Workout in Shelby Farms

6PM - Began with introduction of Dynamic Warmup
           Completed 5x400s and finished with Abs

Great job today! 

Wonder if it's worth it?

Ever wonder if geting up before the endure pushups from hell, sit ups from Satan or burpees (we have no earthly idea where they came from)?  Is it worth to LITERALLY work out in 100+ degree weather when you are sweating buckets before you begin the workout?  The answer is yes....but even more accurately, the answer is ....you'll see.

Embarking upon a healthier lifestyle is certainly worth all the headache when you add up all of it's benefits.  It can reduce heart disease and blood pressure, improve skin, improve quality of sleep, assist in combating depression, give you added energy and help you to lose inches. YAY!  If that doesn't do it for you because you've heard that a million times, then think about being around another day for your children, your significant other, your nieces or nephews and most importantly .....YOURSELF.  Is it worth it?  I certainly think so!
Keep up the good work everyone!

Peace, love and pushups!

Change your life......then change your mind

Making a change in your body first begins with changing your mind.  The human mind is the key to so many things.  It is such an amazing entity.  I believe that you can truly THINK yourself thin.  Okay, what I really mean is that if you place the vision in your mind and then ACT on becoming thin (or getting in shape) then it can happen!  But if you don't believe it can happen, then it NEVER will.  I don't know about you but, I believe it's time for a change!

We are beginning registration for the next camp starting in June!  Visit http://www.mem-fit.com/ to register.

I'm working my {{beep}} off!!

It's hard to put into words what Monday morning feels like, but yet, when you say it to someone, "It feels like Monday", they know what you mean.  Monday can mean so many things to so many people.  To me it feels like a "do-over".  All those things that I didn't get right last week, I've been given a chance to get it right.  Monday morning can also (for some) feel like the wrong side of hell depending upon how you decided to spend your weekends (a-hem).  One thing is for sure, beginning boot camp on Monday feels like nothing else.  Especially at 5:30 in the morning.  I won't tell you that it always feels like you start the day fresh and new.  Sometimes it sucks.  But once you make it out of the bed and you get to the gym/field and you complete that first set of exercises, you know your day will not be the same.
Clear eyes, full heart, can't lose!!!!!

And if that doesn't invoke a sense of hard work, then think about the satisfication when people tell you how great you look, you can honestly say, "Yes, I do look good, cause I've been getting up at 5:30 and working my {{beep}} off!!!!

Monday, May 3, 2010

5:30am post- So, I actually took a minute to find words other than AWESOME....  tremendous, splendid, remarkable, amazing, awe-inspiring (that was a good one), humbling, overwhelming.  I found such great words to describe the first day of boot camp.  And it's not over yet.  I know I should wait to post, but my excitement just overtook me!  Everyone showed up today, and they were excited and inspired.  At 5:30am, they were honestly ready to put in work!  They rocked it out!  It was so great, because the truth be told I was nervous.  Not in a bad way, almost like a kid is excited/nervous for Christmas.  The jittery, exciting, butterflies in your stomach kind of "good" nervous.  Well, I am so excited that everyone has decided to join me.  It was awesome, ooops!  it was grand, breathtaking, tremendous, and AWE-INSPIRING. That it truly was.

How many times?

Just how many times can I claim to be soooooo excited about something.  Not sure!  But sometimes you can't put your excitement into words so you repeat the same ones, over and over and over.  So here goes.....

I'm so excited for tonight!  Salsa's - 6150 Poplar Ave, Memphis, Tn - Pre-Camp Event!!!!  Yay!

Last night we were so nervous that we wouldn't be able to host the event at Salsa because of storms that were being tracked through the Memphis area.  It's now 10:30am and although we had some pretty bad storms last night....looks like everything this way is just fine.  I can't even put in words how excited we are to launch MEMFIT!  So for now, it looks like the weather is going to hold off (or has already passed through - the sun is actually shining right now).

If you plug in and work hard, this camp WILL BE life-changing!

So excited for the beginning

Man, we are so excited about the beginning of MEMfit! Thank you to everyone who has RSVP'd and will be joining us on April 24, for a little information (and perhaps a LIGHT beer or two). We are really looking forward to having a good time.
MEMfit is based upon 3 fundamental principles: Community, Fitness and Fun. Days: Monday-Friday
Time: 6:00a-7:00a/ 6:00p-7:00p
Where: Shelby Farms - N. Pine Lake Dr. (see map)

I had a friend sigh and tell me that "this is a huge undertaking. I don't know if I can". My answer: "You can't afford not to". Becoming fit should be an unselfish action.
