The two major players in the weight-loss battle are diet and exercise. But can the battle be won using only one of these tools? Many people opt for the easier route, which they believe is dieting. But when you consider how poor the statistics are for long-term weight loss through diets, you need to consider a combination of both. Normally, only about 5% of dieters are successful in keeping weight off, and weight cycling is very common. Usually one-third of weight lost is regained within one year and almost all is regained within three to five years.
For those of you itching to begin the warm weather season by combining large amounts of high-fat treats with high-caloric alcohol, the Summer may start with a rude awakening.

Carbohydrates (carbs) are an important part of a healthy diet. Not only do carbs give us the energy that we need to live, but they also improve digestion, promote heart health, and lower our risk for certain cancers. What is confusing about carbs, though, is that there are also certain types that make us gain weight and raise our risk for diabetes and heart disease. Here are some basic ways to be healthy when it comes to carbs:
The glycemic index (GI) is a measure of how a carbohydrate-containing food affects blood sugar levels. Based on its value from 0-100, a food is considered to have a high, medium, or low GI. Having a basic understanding of this concept will allow you to select foods that lead to a healthier, more energized you.
The Mediterranean diet has long been considered one of the healthiest, most user-friendly eating plans around. It is not a strict ‘diet’, but rather reflects the lifestyle of those living in the Mediterranean region during the 1960’s. These people enjoyed long lives with low rates of chronic disease as a result of eating a diet rich in plant-based foods, healthy fats, and moderate alcohol. Their lifestyle also embraced regular physical activity and leisurely meals with friends and family.
Protein is a pretty big deal. It is part of every cell in the body and in some way, helps with every one of the body’s functions. Protein is the main part of your muscles, brain, nerves, hair, skin, and nails. It keeps you healthy by fighting infection, provides energy, and helps you feel full in between meals.

Teamwork Is All In
Teamwork requires a little give and take. We put forth the effort and reap the rewards. We have to see beyond our individual preferences and desires. When we choose a position we need to think of the effects it has on the rest of the team. Our ability to consider the big picture and the interest of the team contribute to its unity and progression.
Sometimes the situation demands a SPRINT; business needs to be conducted with urgency to beat out or stay in front of the competition. How do we accomplish that? The elements to our success are the start, the pace, the run, the intensity, the nonstop action, and the tenacity to win. We get off to a good "Start", "Pace" ourselves, "Run" hard and fast, when necessary throttle the "Intensity", maintain a "Nonstop" supply of energy while sustaining the "Tenacity" to succeed...
The journey of uncertainty and anticipation seem to be a never ending road. As we look forward to what lies ahead and ponder all the possible outcomes, impatience becomes an occupying force. We hope our dreams will come true right away and waiting another minute is just too much. Everything seems to be going at snail pace and the thought of not knowing how the story ends create much anxiety.
