    Hasn’t the weather been beautiful lately? This is the time of year I like to get off the treadmill and take my running outside. I love the fresh air, the scenery and the freedom of running when I’m out of the gym or my basement!

    Running is one of the most effective, time-efficient workouts around, but if you get off on the wrong foot (pun intended haha!), it can be hard to stay motivated and easy to get discouraged. BUT starting and sticking with a ... Read More

    This week we are looking at the 3rd consideration in reevaluating your weight management efforts; weight goal and expectations.

    Unrealistic weight loss goals and the consequences of them (eating disorders, depression, body dissatisfaction, self-esteem deterioration, unhealthy dieting and exercise behavior, etc.) is something I see in my office everyday. Considering the, “You can never be too rich or too thin” culture we live in, it is no wonder many of us hold unattainable weight and body shape ideals as our goal.

    From a very young age, we are ... Read More

    After reading Jane’s great blog about weight loss plateaus yesterday, I thought I would look at it from a fitness point of view. In January, I wrote about busting through plateaus. This week, I will expand on some of the topics covered in that blog post.

    Reassess Your Habits

    Look back at food and exercise journals (because you are doing that, right?). Make sure you haven’t eased up on your standards, letting yourself get by with larger portions or less exercise. You may need to ... Read More

    I am fascinated everyday by this amazing machine we call the body. The hundreds of mechanisms and reactions it employs for survival is intriguing. Nowhere is this seen more than when it comes to nutrition and body weight.

    Anyone who has embarked on a weight loss program has experienced first hand one of the most robust survival defense mechanisms the body possesses; Defense of the Energy Storage System.

    Our biology is designed for scarcity yet our environment is one of abundance.

    For millions of years, food had been scarce ... Read More

  • Barry Cofield's wife, Kendra, caught up with WOW to talk about their foundation, relocating to Washington and more!

    03.08.2012 / Blog Posts Redskins WOW Interview Series

    Kendra had the biggest crush on Barry in middle school.

    And while it may not have been self-confessed love at first sight for the Redskins nose tackle Barry Cofield and his wife, Kendra, the two began dating in high school and got married during Cofield's rookie season with the New York Giants.

    After spending the past five years in New York, the Cofields relocated to Washington, DC after Barry was signed by the Redskins, following the 2011 lockout. Cofield had a breakout season with the team at nose tackle, a position that is often considered the toughest to fill ... Read More

  • How Women Build Muscle

    There are more myths and misconceptions about strength training than any other area of fitness. While research continues to uncover more and more reasons why working out with weights is good for you, many women continue to avoid resistance training for fear of developing muscles like Arnold Schwarzenegger. You’ve heard “Women can’t build muscle like men. They don’t have enough testosterone." This is, in fact, only partly true.

    Many women, believing they wouldn’t build muscle, hit the gym with a vengeance and then wondered ... Read More

  • Happy St. Patrick's Day From the Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association!

    03.06.2012 / Blog Posts Health and Wellness

    When your thoughts turn to St. Patrick’s Day, green beer, corned beef and cabbage usually come to mind. But many other foods long traditional in the Irish diet – potatoes, oats, fish, stout, cabbage, and cheese - rank among the healthiest.

    Cheese is a very well-liked food in Ireland. The Emerald Isle has always been known for its lush meadows, perfect for providing the best environment for cows that produce Ireland’s tasty farmhouse cheeses. Cheese is an excellent source of protein and calcium, and the fat in cheese contains the powerful cancer fighter conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). Irish cheeses are ... Read More
