Hot Fitness Tip of the week

As the temperature and humidity rise, outdoor exercise can potentially be hazardous. Women should shift their exercise time to periods of the day when the sun is not at its peak, such as early morning or evening. Try loose clothing, along with a protective hat or sunscreen. Also, pay close attention to the body's heat-related warning signs. Watch out for increased fatigue, dizziness, headaches and cramps, and if you notice you're starting to become thirsty, that's usually a delayed response, so you really need to make sure you hydrate yourself.

Words of Inspiration

Admit defeat and enjoy success

Most likely, you have a perfectly legitimate reason for not taking action. You haven't been able to get out and exercise because the weather has been so bad. You can't get any work done on your marketing plan because the phone keeps ringing.

So go ahead and give up. Admit defeat. The weather is not going to improve any time soon. And the phone calls just keep coming. The obstacles that prevent you from taking action are not going away. Admit defeat. And then find a way to take action anyway.

Rather than fighting against something that you cannot change, look for ways to adapt. As long as you're fighting against it, you get a great excuse. But excuses won't help you accomplish anything. So give up the fight, give up the excuse. Go ahead and do what needs to be done. Admit defeat, get it behind you, and then take the actions that will bring you success.

Obesity - Cancer Link Uncovered


Nearly five per cent of all cancers in women aged 50 - 64 were connected to obesity.

The World Cancer Research Fund found a link to obesity in six types of cancers. Women who were overweight were four times more likely to develop cancer of the uterine lining while obesity boosts the risk by six-fold. Obese women also are at greater risk of breast and colon cancer. Excess weight also increases mortality from many cancers, with the strongest association seen for endometrial cancer; heavy women are 6.25 times more likely to die from the disease.

Several studies have shown that obese people have high levels of toxins stored in their fatty tissue. For example, plastic bottles and containers exude dozens of chemicals. Many of these chemicals, for example bisphenol A and phthalates, are xenoestrogens.
