Take a Hike

Take a Hike

Whether you want to lose weight, spend time outside with your friends and loved ones, or unplug from the legion of screens, you may want to consider taking a hike. There are a lot of physical and mental health benefits that come with regular time spent outdoors. My name is Nathan Jablonski, and I am a General Manager in Winder, GA. I have been with the Company since November 2020, but before joining the TMX Finance® Family of Companies, I worked for a health and nutrition store. I am also a reservist in the United States Army (so yes, I …

Why Fitness is Important to Me

Why Fitness is Important to Me

Fitness should be important to everyone because it is truly the best form of self-care and the best thing you can do for your body, both mentally and physically! For me personally, fitness is important because I have seen not only an improvement in my own health, but I’ve also seen it dramatically improve my parents’ health. My dad has a heart condition called Afib, or Atrial Fibrillation, which is essentially an irregular or very rapid heartbeat, and my mom has had breast cancer. Being that Afib is hereditary and breast cancer is thought to potentially be hereditary, these are …

My Fitness Journey

My Fitness Journey

During the pandemic, I discovered I was on the high-risk list because of my high blood pressure and my weight. So, I decided to take control of my health and well-being again. I was at my heaviest weight and very unhappy. My weight gain started while attending college and working full time. I didn’t have time to exercise, and I was eating on the go between work and school. Once I graduated college, I started to work a lot, so I didn’t make time to exercise and was still eating very unhealthily. I knew if I lost weight, I could …

Make Fitness a Family Affair – the Family You Have and the Family You Choose

Make Fitness a Family Affair – the Family You Have and the Family You Choose

Here’s the thing: I’m 40 and a mother of three. Let me say that again so I actually believe it. I’M 40 YEARS OLD AND A MOTHER OF THREE (gulp!). I haven’t enjoyed a hot meal in years, used the bathroom without some little grubby tiny person barging in to examine what I’m doing, or completely finished blow drying my hair in over a decade. In fact, just last week after a long day at the office, I came home to find myself unexpectedly cooking three different types of pasta for dinner, because one will only eat spaghetti, one cried …

My 2019 Health Goals

My 2019 Health Goals

“I don’t run. If you see me run, you too should start running because something is probably chasing me,” was something I always said when my friends would ask me if I wanted to go for a run or participate in a 5K road race. Running was not part of my routine life and I was completely okay living my best life without running in the picture. Then came my late-20s-approaching-30s where I found myself gaining weight and feeling uncomfortable in my own skin. My normal routine of lifting weights and dog walking were not helping me sustain the healthy …

Discipline or Regret

Discipline or Regret

Deciding to live a healthy lifestyle and to “get fit” is a great decision to be sure. However, turning that decision into a reality is about much more than that. It’s about making the right decision hundreds of times throughout the week when presented with the choice between the easy way and the right way. Should I be disciplined when the alarm goes off at 5:30 AM when I don’t feel like it… Or will I hit the snooze button and regret the decision later? Should I get the waffle fries or the fruit? Soda or water? Keep running or …

Yoga: A More Productive Way to Handle Stress

Yoga: A More Productive Way to Handle Stress

Based on the number of times I’ve heard “treat yourself” or “live your best life “recently, it seems like people are really focused on inner happiness these days. While there’s nothing wrong with enjoying that 600-calorie Venti Frappuccino with double whip every once in a while, I think sometimes we all forget that there are much healthier ways to handle stress. Mental wellness tends to get lost in the other demands of everyday life. We’re consumed by our work projects, mowing the lawn, walking the dog, being a good spouse or partner, baking peanut free/gluten free/sugar free/dairy free cupcakes for …

The Spiritual Benefits of Yoga-Begin Your Inner Journey Now!

The thought of Yoga generates either good thoughts or terror and nothing in-between. Yoga is very physical and regular practice develops your stamina and strength including your core! When committed to the practice on a regular basis, you experience and become aware of the spirit (energy) within and without. While it is primarily stretching (until you cannot stand it anymore) and limbering the body through challenging poses, the mental aspects of Yoga are amazing. The Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga act as guides to help you find inner peace through love and compassion for yourself and others. It calms you …

Do you think about your future? Bucket list vacations? New cars? College tuition? Does it excite you or scare you?

How Exercise Improved My Social Life

How Exercise Improved My Social Life

Roughly ten years ago, my boyfriend of four years and I broke up and I was at a loss for what to do with my life. I had moved to Savannah to live near him, and the only friends I had made were his friends. I quickly found myself lonely and bored. I randomly came across a group of runners who were about to begin training for a marathon in San Diego, California. I figured, why not? I have nothing else better to do! To make a long story short, I met the most amazing group of people. We all came in different …
