  • Sleep. Sleep. Sleep.

    Sleep. Sleep. Sleep.

    One of the main things we don’t get enough of these days. There seems to be a badge of honor about how little one can sleep and still function. “I only need four hours of sleep!”
    “I will sleep when I’m dead.”
    How many times have you heard something like this? Or said it yourself? We can get by in the short term with less sleep but eventually it always catches up with us. No matter what, our bodies need recovery time and sleep is ideal. However, a lot of us don’t get enough quantity or quality of sleep. It is amazing how many people have sleep issues.

    She lost 20 lbs

    Before Finding Terra Nova Fitness my struggles were with trying to lose weight and find out what workouts work for me.

    Easy Healthful Cooking Tips

    Before I dive into the topic this week, I wanted to quickly share that we are doing a shoe drive at Terra Nova Fitness. Gently used and new shoes are being collected for the nonprofit Soles for Souls. There is a collection box and a sign in sheet for all donations.

This week, I wanted to share some tricks I use while cooking at home. A few friends have asked me what I cook at home and if I have any tips to share. Of course, I am in no way a nutritionist or professional! Having said that, implementing these habits is one of the many ways I ....

  • Motivation: Do I Really Need It?

    Motivation: Do I Really Need It?

    This week I wanted to talk about the idea of Motivation. Do we really need it to start working on our health? Is it necessary to get that extra push to go into the gym and to start “trying to eat in a healthful way”? I distinctly remember my graduate school days, back when I was tired and overweight. I would sit in front of a computer or stack of books for hours, drinking coffee and eating badly to get through the long tedious hours of writing and studying. Every once in a while, I would get the idea that I needed to “get some motivation and exercise”. I would attempt to go for a walk or go to the university gym for a week or so. Then I would “lose my ....
