  • Don’t put Unleaded Fuel in a Premium Tank!

    Don’t put Unleaded Fuel in a Premium Tank!

    My days are usually planned out. If I know I will be out for a while I pack a lunch or snacks to get me by. On one particular day, I had a lot of meetings and appointments that lasted longer than I had expected. I was in a food desert part of town, with no great healthy restaurant choices. I was starving and needed to eat before I hurt someone. LOL I stumbled across a place that sold fish. I asked if they could grill the fish, I believe they were laughing at me behind their masks. They stated, we only fry here ma’am. I asked if they had any vegetables, they, probably laughed at me again and replied no! So, I walked away with fried fish, french fries and water. I ....

  • What Gear Are You In?

    What Gear Are You In?

    "What gear are you in?" You know how they say your dreams can give you guidance. Well mine did this week because I was dreaming about cars. That was strange because I am not really a car fanatic so I guess it must mean that someone I know is getting a new car…maybe. :) If not it gave me a great idea for a topic this week. I started thinking about how I could relate cars to fitness and came up with a great question. What gear are you in? That's right just like a car we are set in motion at different stages or gears. In DRIVE we are moving forward with our fitness goals by exercising and eating right. We sometimes even switch to overdrive to increase our ....

  • How will your pain affect you?

    How will your pain affect you?

    How will your pain affect you? There are two types of pain in the world: Pain that hurts you and pain that changes you! As we start a new camp I can assure you that whether you are a new member or a returning member, you will experience some form of pain. I like to say the pain you experience when you first start to exercise is your muscles screaming, “Thank you for waking me up again”. Although I like to call it that, it does have a real term called, delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). This describes a phenomenon of muscle pain, muscle soreness or muscle stiffness that occurs in a day or two after exercise. This muscle soreness is most frequently felt when ....

  • You Don’t Believe That Fat Meat is Greasy!

    You Don’t Believe That Fat Meat is Greasy!

    “You don’t believe that fat meat is greasy” If you grew up in a southern rooted family like mine, then you have undoubtedly heard the quote- “You don’t believe that fat meat is greasy”. It is a generational expression that is used most commonly when somebody has to find out the difference the hard way about something especially after they have been warned or understand the consequences of their actions. Like most teenagers, I thought that I knew more than my mother. I would ask her for advice, she would explain the process, in my mind I didn’t want to do it “HER” way and I often did it ....

  • The Benefits of IV Therapy!

    Treat Yourself to Hydration IV Therapy: The Benefits and Breakdown I remember as a new graduate nurse some 25 years ago, mixing my first of many banana bags. I was so excited because this was something a floor nurse could not do (it would have been ordered through the pharmacy and delivered to their unit). I enthusiastically learned about each drug I was putting into the bags and how they affected the body. I could not wait to start the IV and see how my concoction benefited the patient. A “banana bag” as we call it in the ER, was for people who presented to the ER drunk or suffering from a hangover. Once the IV infusion started, I quickly saw nausea and ....

  • Cancer Sucks!

    Cancer Sucks!

    “Cancer Sucks” Yesterday one of my dear friends from childhood called me to tell me her mother (my second mom) was just diagnosed with cancer. Then an hour or so later, one of my clients called to let me know her mom, who she had told me less than 2 weeks ago was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, died while she was holding her hand. These calls are not foreign to anyone reading this article. We hear about cancer so much that we start to get numb. We have high hopes, then we hear another story and our hopes just drop. We start to question why this is happening to this person or that person. Why…Because Cancer Sucks! My favorite uncle was one of ....

  • Are you breaking or building generational curses?

    Are you breaking or building generational curses?

    This week I am proud to celebrate Tadda’s Fitness Center’s (TFC)12 th year in the business of health and fitness. As I reminisce about my first clients to my current clients, I am in awe of how far we have come and what we have accomplished. When I started TFC, I never knew how long we would last. I surely did not know that we would impact multiple generations in one family, this thought leaves me speechless. In this last bootcamp I had a grandmother, mother, and daughter working out and the great-grandmother would come in for vitamin b12 injections. YES, that’s 4 generations at TFC. This family is on a mission to break all generational curses and build healthy ....

  • Unblock Yourself

    November 10, 2017 “Unblock Yourself” No matter how many times someone praises you, compliments your progress, or supports you along your fitness journey, if you don’t believe in yourself or have confidence in your ability you will in one way or another block yourself from achieving your goals. I had a client that went MIA, I was quite surprised because, since the first week of camp, I did nothing but praise her, I even moved her up to another team because she was that good. I saw how strong she was getting every day and then suddenly, she just stopped coming. When she did return she wrote this statement in her journal. “Okay...I got ....

  • Are You Naked and Afraid or Un-Afraid?

    Are You Naked and Afraid or Un-Afraid?

    In April 2014 I lost my beloved pet dog Gally. I had had her for many years and she gave me nothing but pure unconditional love. When I was sick, she’d walk me to the bathroom to make sure I was okay. When I pulled into my garage, I could hear her barking with excitement, eager to greet me. My neighbor’s kids loved her so much that they gave me a plant when Gally passed away. I cherished that plant in my old home as a connection to my Gally with it sitting front and center on my kitchen table. This past April I sold my home. Moving and packing a large home is an arduous and time-consuming process. I was so expended by the process and due to packing and relocating, I became ....

  • Are You Losing Fat or Muscle?

    Are You Losing Fat or Muscle?

    Are You Losing Fat or Muscle? Typically, when you want to “lose weight,” you mean you want to lose fat while maintaining as much muscle as possible. If you’re losing muscle and not fat, then you may need to make some changes to yourdiet and exercise to counteract this. This is the third week of boot camp, and clients are finally realizing that losing weight is hard. From the diet changes to the ramped-up workouts, it can take a serious overhaul on your lifestyle. Usually, the goal is to decrease body fat and increase muscle. But sometimes in the quest, you can start to lose muscle instead of fat. In order to cut fat, while still building ....
