We have always been taught that our food should be low calorie, low fat, and low sodium. Unfortunately, foods that are advertised as “low fat” can often contain more calories and are high in sugar. To ensure you are getting the right amount of essential nutrients, learning how to read the nutritional information on the back of your food’s packaging is essential.
Ok, this was a tough winter. The cold and repeated onslaughts of snow kept most of us indoors. The weather was too lousy for many of you to even go out to the gym, or so you said. Those holiday pounds you told yourself you were going to shed in January are still around in April. And with the weather as bone-chilling cold as it’s been, you probably indulged in more comfort food, meaning more calories. This was a tough winter for keeping your New Year’s resolution to stay in shape, or get in shape.

Active people yearn for the summer months when they take their exercise routines outdoors. But danger lurks beneath the blazing mid-day sun. Dehydration, which in severe cases can lead to heat exhaustion and heat stroke, is a constant threat for active people outdoors, yet you can protect yourself by being prepared.
The key is water. Drinking water before, during and after exercising will fend off the worst effects of exercising. You’ll still sweat like crazy, but that’s a good thing.
A Beautiful Beginning - The Tennessee Fitness Spa By Ann Rezabek of Life On The Water Reprented from Life On The Water (Winter 2013)
Water spilled over the limestone ridge, turning a wooden water wheel carrying soothing dripdrops into a stream. A cool breeze snuck around the corner. My eyes closed as I breathed deeply. Being captivated by nature’s beauty is rare for me, and I wanted to relish the moment.

At one time or another, anyone with a few pounds to lose has given some thought to checking out of real life and into a fitness spa.

A spa for lean budgets…Trimming the cost of fitness in Tennessee. By Jerry Shriver Reprinted from USA Today (October 1995)
WAYNESBORO, Tenn. - Hiking 8 miles before breakfast is not a skill I shall summon often, as I plan to structure my life to avoid such things. But thanks to my recent week-long stay at the Tennessee Fitness Spa, I now know that I possess the will and the power to stride smartly at dawn should the need arise.
