A HEALTHY IMMUNE SYSTEM is our best defense
Move more and sit less!
Nobel Peace Prize Winning Discovery
By Dr. Barry Sears
Sitting too much hurts the immune system.
Moving opens the body’s internal pharmacy, our own “natural” medicine bottle.
Blood flows over the top of our internal medicine bottle and floods the immune system with lots of healing medicine.
Through movement is increased blood flow, and every organ in the body is flooded with “internal medicine” and immune fighting cells.

Movement creates an energy field… this is the winning Nobel Prize Discovery!
The better your blood flow, the better your immune system.
So, go outside and play! Move, exercise! Wave hello from afar to fellow immune building neighbors.
Create lots of good healing medicine in your body.
Just move!
Loved the video. I need to get a ball!
Just saying 🙂

May the Motivation Be With You
#maythe4thbewithyou

“I’m too tired.” “It’s raining.” “I can’t work out on days that end in day.” We’ve all been there. Making excuses for why we can’t go to the gym. Motivation is one of, if not the most difficult thing to maintain when it comes to exercise. Just taking the initiative to get out of the house and walk through those studio doors is something to be proud of. Below are 5 strategies you can use to stay motivated!

Create a reward system.
We all love prizes. Set goals for yourself and when you achieve those goals, make it worth your while. Whether it’s rewarding yourself with some frozen yogurt or a new pair of shoes, you should be proud of the progress you made!
Have an accountability buddy.
It’s easy to let ourselves down, but when someone else is relying on you, we all tend to work a little harder. Whether this is a workout partner, family member, or even your trainer, empower someone else to help you stay on track!
Share your exercise journey on social media.
We’ve all seen it on our timelines. That friend who is posting the before, during and after photos of their weight loss journey. And you know what? It’s probably working for them. Your social media friends and followers can provide motivation and encouragement through positive and even negative comments. And when you hit your targets, you’ll be eager to share your success! Plus, you may just motivate others to start their journey!
Write in a journal.
Now this can be digital or with good old fashion pen and paper. The latter tends to be more effective because you can keep it with you at all times. You should write down all of the activity you did for the day and everything you’ve eaten. Also make sure to record your weight loss. And the end of each week, read through your journal and see all of the progress you’ve made!
Mix things up.
Your brain, muscles and taste buds can easily get bored when doing the same exercises or eating the same food day in and day out. Don’t be afraid to change it up! At My House Fitness, we are always finding new ways to challenge your mind, body and soul!

At My House Fitness, we help our clients stay motivated through specialized one-on-one training, nutritional coaching and group classes! Contact your local My House Fitness to find your motivation!

We know at MHF, that losing weight starts with food, and building muscle includes a KILLLER workout regimen and a healthy diet. Here are the top 10 Foods to stop eating Immediately to Lose Weight.
#1 Alcohol
Studies have found that drinking alcohol actually slows weight loss in a myriad of ways. For example, in January 2017, researchers conducting an animal study found that mice given ethanol over a period of three days demonstrated a significant increase in food intake. The results suggest that alcohol can actually trigger hunger signals in the brain, leading to an increased urge to eat more food.

#2- White Bread- YOU ALREADY KNOW!

#3- High-Calorie Caffeinated Beverages DROP THE STARBUCKS! A tablespoon of Coffee Mate's Salted Caramel Chocolate creamer is 35 calories and has no nutritional value whatsoever. If you drop two tablespoons of the stuff in your coffee per day, that's an extra 490 calories a week

#4- Fruit Juices
Most fruit juices you find at the supermarket have very little in common with whole fruit. In fact, they're often highly processed and loaded with sugar, which is a chief contributor to weight gain. A 2013 study found that there is sufficient scientific evidence to support that decreasing sugar-sweetened beverage consumption will reduce the prevalence of obesity and obesity-related diseases.

#5-Candy Bars
It's no secret that candy bars are unhealthy — they pack a lot of added sugar, added oils and refined flour into a small package and typically have little to no nutritional value to speak of. A 2015 study of 107,243 post-menopausal American women found that greater chocolate-candy intake was associated with greater prospective weight gain. That means, cutting these sweet treats from your diet is bound to lead to some weight loss.

#6- Soda
Sugar-sweetened beverages, like soda, should also be cut from your diet ASAP if you're looking to shed weight fast. According to a 2004 JAMA study, an increase in the consumption of sugary soft drinks was significantly associated with greater weight gain and greater risk of obesity over time in adults. Similarly, a study in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that drinks containing high-fructose corn syrup (which is in a lot of sodas) are linked to obesity. Fructose is absorbed in the body differently than other sugars, the study assesses, which affects insulin levels and metabolism, and can lead to weight gain.

And stay away from diet soda, too. The artificial sweeteners used in no-calorie beverages cause belly fat and lead you to seek out additional calories, not to mention they wreak havoc on your teeth, heart, and gut health. Removing all sodas from your diet is an easy way to slim down without even breaking a sweat.

#7- French Fries
Next time you're asked if you'd prefer fries or salad with your meal, opt for the latter. There's no denying that fries taste great, but that's because they're pieces of fried potato bathed in artery-clogging oil.

#8- Potato Chips
We've already outlined why fries are no good for your waistline, especially if you're trying to slim down, so it's no surprise that potato chips, which are also packed with sodium and saturated fat, are a no-go as well.

#9 Processed Meats
That 2011 Harvard study which found that potato chips contribute significantly to weight gain also found that processed meats — we're talking deli meats, ham, bacon, and hot dogs — can contribute to the growth of your waistline. More specifically, the research showed that processed meat consumption is associated with nearly an extra pound of weight gain over a 4-year period.

#10 Ice Cream
Ice cream is hard to resist, especially as temperatures get higher, but cutting it from your diet is a good move if you're looking to drop weight fast, and it's especially helpful if you tend to top your ice cream with syrups, sauces, and other sugary toppings before digging in. A pint of ice cream could have up to about 1,000 calories, and for some people, that's more than half their daily intake

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!!! May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!!! May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.

may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

OVERCOMING OVERINDULGING
Now that record freezing days and nights are behind us, we wanted first and foremost, to send you and your loved one’s heartfelt thoughts of health, warmth, and safety. We hope everyone is okay and thawed out from the bitter cold.
If last week, not to mention the past year, has turned you to overindulging, do not fret. The sun is shining and there is hope!
Reflecting on the week of record setting storms and a year of quarantine, many of us reached for comfort and connection through no other than…FOOD. Sugar filled, fatty, overflowing plates of richness, hearty steaming goodness, too many cookies and crunchy bites, often provides just what we need in the moment. But then what? We are left feeling guilty and “blah”! In addition, it is likely an actual physical change takes place in the body, primarily the stomach.
Overindulging can stretch out the stomach and if this is the case, it takes more volume to make you feel full and satisfied. Think of filling and expanding a balloon with air or water, and then how it contracts once emptied. In very general terms, the stomach behaves remarkably like that of a balloon with the ability to contract or expand. We want to avoid the latter.
It is all about a mental shift so that your body, again primarily your stomach, can reset itself by contracting and remaining smaller, not stretched out. Although we are talking about the stomach, it all begins in your brain and a little self-control. Yes! It will take a bit of effort on your part!
The body is an amazing machine and with your mental fortitude, your body can hit the “reset button” and get you back to feeling in control, disciplined, and mentally strong, once again.! Put forth even the slightest self-control and your body will respond in a positive way, leaving you feeling satisfied, lighter, and best of all, mentally better.
Here is what to do. First, make a mental shift in your thinking. Imagine taking one, very mindful step at each meal by putting down the fork BEFORE YOU FEEL FULL. Give it 15-20 minutes and in nearly every instance, you will feel satisfied, without the “I overindulged again” mood. Making a habit of this at each meal is the key to giving your body, primarily your stomach, the ability to reset, contract (shrink), and make you feel fuller and more satisfied while eating less. Do this time and time again, and you might even find yourself losing a few pounds. Either way, your stomach will remain smaller and not so stretched out, leaving you feeling full and satisfied with less volume, mentally more positive, physically lighter, and overall, better about yourself. It might even give you more energy during your workouts. If so, your MHF Personal Trainer will be sure to up the reps and sets! We cannot wait to see you, and remember, put down the fork sooner than later.

See you tomorrow! Monday motivation! 💪🏼

AVOCADOS huge health benefits

Coming in at 160 calories for a medium size, avocados are one of the few fruits that contain heart healthy, monounsaturated fat. And yes, avocados are considered a fruit according to botanists who define this green gem as a “large berry with a single seed.”
The avocado consists of 73% water,15 grams of healthy fat, 4 grams protein, 2 grams net carbs (9 grams carbohydrate, with 7 of those carbs coming from fiber). In addition, avocados contain zero cholesterol. If you need another reason to incorporate this fatty fruit into your diet, avocados contain more potassium than a banana and can support weight loss due to its fulfilling, nutrient and fiber packed profile. A whole avocado has approximately 970 grams of potassium compared to a banana with 485 grams.
So make yourself a piece of avocado toast today and enjoy! #allentx #workout #gym #avocado #healthyeatting #fitness #nutrition #health #healthylifestyle #workoutroutine
