    "Awareness of the Moment is when Change Can Begin"

    I hope you were inspired to keep a food log last week and have found it to be helpful.  From my experience as a dietitian, people either love keeping a food log or they hate it.  I have discovered the “haters” eventually learn to love it once they experience the benefits of this extremely powerful weight-management tool. 

    Once you have at least a week’s worth of data, you are ready to move onto the next step ... Read More

  • Commonwealth Orthopaedics: Stress Fractures

    One of the most common injuries in sports is a stress fracture. 

    If you’ve started a New Year’s resolution to exercise more, you may be prone to a stress fracture if you increase your activity too quickly.  Categorized as an overuse injury, stress fractures occur with bone overloading and muscle fatigue such that they are unable to absorb added shock. Eventually, the overloaded bone develops a tiny crack called a stress fracture.

    Stress fractures often are the result of increasing the amount or intensity of an activity too rapidly. They also can be caused by the ... Read More

    For the past couple weeks, we have been bombarded by the annual chit-chat concerning New Year resolutions.  What I found interesting this year, added to all the sobering statistics of how resolutions don’t work, is the fact that the amount of people making New Year resolutions in the first place is at an all-time low, suggesting people are “giving up” before they even begin.

    I heard a reporter explain that the problem with New Year resolutions is they are too much like a diet but she did ... Read More

    Griffin III tore his right ACL in 2009 while playing collegiately at Baylor University, missing the remainder of the season. He suffered a Grade 1 sprain of his right LCL earlier this season. In the fourth quarter of the Redskins playoff appearance against the Seahawks on January 6th, Griffin III went after a botched snap and felt his knee collapse under the strain. He fell to the turf and was attended to by the team's medical staff. Click here for more on Robert Griffin III's knee injury.

    The magical 2012 Washington Redskins season came to an end Sunday, as the team lost 24-14 to the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Wild Card round of the playoffs at FedExField.

    The loss put an end to the Redskins’ seven-game winning streak to end the season – a run that saw the team overtake the reigning Super Bowl champion New York Giants and hold off the Dallas Cowboys to win its first NFC East Division title since 1999.

    Anybody watching Sunday’s playoff matchup against the Seahawks would’ve thought the Redskins had the game in the bag after ... Read More

    Becky Johnson, Certified Personal Trainer (ACE); IBNFC Certified Nutrition Coach

    The reality is, taking group fitness classes at a gym or following workout DVDs at home are both great options to enhance your current level of fitness. The key to ensuring long term success however, is to determine which option best suits your needs, goals, and lifestyle, as well as identifying which will provide you with the most effective, safe and quality workout. 

    Since I’m training most of the day, I rarely am able to take classes. But when I do I always enjoy it because I have someone ... Read More
