No Gym, No Problem.....

Posted on March 20 by

My gym officially closed yesterday and it no doubt brings to me some added stress. In reflection, I too must come up with ways to keep my fitness, food and stress levels under control.

First, I do worry about over eating due to boredom, so I am not buying any foods that might be a trigger for me to over eat. With that said, I could still over eat calories from nuts, bars, etc... so keeping busy helps.... which leads to ... more exercise.

Second, due to not having my real gym open, I need to focus on alternatives for calorie burning and to keep myself busy (especially after dinner). Here are some fun ideas to increase your caloric output....

-Keep hydrated for optimal metabolism, so drink water before and after exercise.
-Drink some caffeine before a work out (in the am).
-Listen to your favorite music.
-Move your arms more to increase heart rate.
-Add weights or bands to your routine.
-Increase your incline if you have a treadmill or elliptical.
-Use your own body weight for at home exercises, see below.

Third, is stress management, which I feel is more likely to happen when I keep up my routine of sleep, exercise and eating well.

Recipe for Homemade Hand Sanitizer

Posted on March 17 by
in Blog



The World Health Organization says hand-washing with soap and hot water is the best way to clean your hands. Still, when that's not an option, alcohol-based hand sanitizer and wipes are the next best thing.

Hand sanitizers should be made with at least 70% alcohol; 99% isopropyl alcohol is the highest recommendation.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup 99% isopropyl alcohol
  • 1 Tablespoon hydrogen peroxide
  • 1 teaspoon glycerin. Glycerin is a moisturizer found in the cosmetic section of drug stores, supermarkets, and health food stores.
  • Water


Directions:

Step 1: Mix first three ingredients in a 2 cup measuring glass
Step 2: Add enough water to bring the total liquid to 1 1/3 cups. Mix thoroughly.
Step 3: Pour the sanitizer into small bottles. The mixture will not be as thick as commercial hand sanitizers.
