New Year’s Eve resolutions have come and gone and Valentine’s Day sweets may be whispering sweet nothings in our ear, but there’s still time to set and lock in new goals for the rest of 2017!
Maybe you’re thinking of competing in a new big event or looking to beat your best 2016 finish time—whatever your goal, your success will depend on your commitment. Here are four ways you can help reach your fitness goals in 2017.
Meal planning and doing weekly or bi-weekly meal prep in a good way practically forces you to eat healthy, powerful meals even when your day is packed with work, meetings and training. You can start the day off with the best of intentions, but sometimes your schedule can fluctuate and you’re left with few options. Help make sure this doesn’t happen by planning your meals in advance. In fact, here’s a 14-day paleo diet meal plan to get you started.
Take charge of winter, spring, summer and fall by outlining a calendar of your goals and by strategically planning your training schedule to maximize your progress throughout the year. This calendar could aim for your main event in the summer, with smaller practice events in lead-up to the big competition. Working with a training coach during this period can help you identify your strengths and weaknesses, and determine how best to align your training plan to take advantage of, and tackle, them to achieve your best performance.
In order to perform at your best, you also have to take the time off that your body requires to effectively repair itself. Pushing yourself too hard, and ignoring your body’s need for rest periods, can actually push you further away from your goals, as you are leaving your body open to injury. Your body requires rest days in order for your muscles to properly heal and repair themselves, and to maintain intense training regimens.
To support muscle repair and healing, consider incorporating an amino acid supplement into your regimen. BodyHealth’s PerfectAmino™ includes the eight essential amino acids integral to protein synthesis in the body.
Perhaps the most important, and challenging, factor in achieving your long-term fitness goals is to keep yourself motivated. Setting smaller milestones on the way to your big goals is not only motivating but also marks your continued success and achievement, which can push you to give your all in every session, all year long!

Elderberry, also known as Sambucus nigra, has been used for centuries as a natural herbal remedy for those who fall ill.
Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, referred to elderberry as “nature’s medicine chest,” and it has been noted as early as the 5th century BC as a medicinal tonic – forever cementing it as a staple in human nutrition.
But, it wasn’t until recently that we understood WHY it is so helpful to the body. And with this understanding came advanced methods of harnessing the incredible power of this medicinal plant.
Chronic inflammation is one of the most dangerous conditions to affect the human body. The WHO estimates that three out of five deaths worldwide are associated with chronic inflammatory diseases (stroke, cancer, heart disorders, and other conditions and diseases).
Now, that doesn’t mean that everyone who suffers from chronic inflammation is going to die – quite the contrary. But it does mean that it is crucial to identify the condition and address it early before it progresses into a disease or serious health condition.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, nearly one in five adults in the U.S. live with a mental illness. Many of these people have been prescribed medication to treat conditions such as depression, ADHD, anxiety, and hundreds of other cataloged mental disorders.
But what if these mental illnesses weren’t the result of an imbalance in the brain, but instead were caused by something as simple as a yeast infection?
Well, we are not about to make a ridiculous statement like “All depression is caused by candida” or anything like that, but today we’re going to honestly review what effects an overgrowth of candida can have on your body and your mental health.
Furthermore, we’re going to provide guidance on how to resolve a candida infection.
