4 Running Basics for Beginners

Are you a runner, or do you hate anything that even comes close to a slow jog? 

Were you forced to run the mile in high school and hated every minute of it, or did you breeze through it like a natural-born marathon runner?

Take 2 Wellness has a New Look!

Welcome to the new Take2Welless.com! It has been quite an exciting summer for me with many projects, including a new website. I hope you enjoy it and can navigate easily. I am very excited about the new recipe section. Visit the site often and keep an eye out for new recipes! I am constantly searching for new dishes to help my clients, and I am also always experimenting and creating new ones of my own. If you have created a recipe that you would like to share, please send it to me and you will get your name listed in the credits. :)

I have also been enjoying my summer functional nutrition courses. As my clients know, I am always in school, learning the systems of the body, or keeping up with new developments in health and wellness. This month I am studying the cardiovascular system. While I am learning so very much, one thing that is still at the top of the list is how cane sugar is toxic to our systems. If you work with me then you know how much I dislike this white stuff! If you do nothing else for yourself, GIVE UP SUGAR! Try coconut sugar or coconut palm sugar instead. It is much lower on the glycemic index and not as addictive as cane sugar. If you missed the 60 minute segment that aired several years ago, take a look at it here. You will be amazed.

The Take 2 Wellness Coaching Program is growing as fast as a summer garden!!! It has been a wonderful summer for me as I am enjoying meeting many executives who want to Take 2 Wellness by reclaiming their health. I am the nutritional consultant for The Atlanta Internists Executive Wellness Program, and I am honored to work with Dr. James Capo, Dr. Kelleen Fitzgerald, and their team. You will find me speaking at their seminar series again this fall. On November 7 we will be discussing how to "Eat, Drink, & Be Merry this Holiday Season!"

I hope you and your family have had a relaxing summer, and enjoyed at least a little slower pace than usual. If you have children and are getting back into the school routine, don't forget to schedule time for the family to share the evening meal together!

To your health,
