Maintaining good nutrition is especially important during cancer treatment. The disease and its treatments can change how you taste, swallow, or chew your food, and can temporarily change how your body uses food. Check out Issue 1's article, "Nutrition As The Solution", for common side effects of various cancer treatments and nutritional tips to help you overcome them.

A great pic taken of @shamafernandes during an ISOHIT class 💪🏼
Most women’s goals (apart from having abs and a booty) is to do at least one pull up!
It’s a hard one. Was my goal too. And it’s was @newtonworkouts who actually got me strong enough for my first unassisted pull up.
Some keys to make your stronger:
▫️It’s important to keep your body tight and really raise your chest to the bar as you come up and squeeze your lats. - making sure your shoulders are back and down from your ears, not raising up and curving forward.
▫️Assisted machines is the place to start to ensure quality technique and control -> then go to band work (as seen in the pic)
▫️SLOW ECCENTRIC loading.
Eccentric is the downward or gravity based phase of the movement.
- change the tempo and go SLOW (3-5seconds) on the way down, then explode up and have a strong co traction at the 🔝
Give these a try and watch your pull ups get stronger! Eventually you will be able to do a body weight rep. Then build on that!
Almost two weeks till my lumbar spinal fusion. I know going forward how I train is going to have a huge impact on having a healthy back, but also having a long and pain free life. Execution is going to paramount. Checking my ego at the door and getting my muscles to WORK... you’ll find me living in the gym the next 15 days ✌🏻#tension#metalback#ironandblood#bodybuilding @apemanstrong @bpakfitness
The #Mars , #Jupiter square can amplify existing tendencies towards addiction, overindulgence or escapism....It can also amplify creativity or motivation to help and heal. Whatever you feel pulled towards this week, know that the current will be strong. And, you will not have total control over the end result.
A #square means #tension , and in this case, it’s tension between ideals, faith, the big picture (#Jupiter ) versus actions (#Mars ). The tension will motivate you to seek, pursue or escape.
This is why it’s important to be very aware of your impulses, especially right now! What are you trying to accomplish? #Mars in fluid #Pisces is about openness and allowing, but #Jupiter pushes for big results. It can be easy to lose track. But if you set your course in a healthy direction, you can achieve almost magical results✨

Does anyone else get #MIGRAINEheadaches too often to be random?
Or #tension#headaches that become this bad no matter how much you stretch and drink water?
How about people generally not #believing how #painful it is because your #appearance doesn't always change that much...? It's been 3 straight weeks where nearly every day (maybe 5/7) I've needed 2 naproxen sodium (Aleve) just to keep working without crying or passing out. I'm visiting my #chiropractor soon but i know I've gotta grab time with a #massagetherapist so my bones don't just go back out of allignment within a week. If i could I'd see the guy 1x a week for a little while like back in high school!! Pray for my sleep to let me relax?!

Magnesium is a very important nutrient that can help the body in lots of different ways! Such as regulating nerve and muscle function, maintaining healthy blood sugar levels, maintaining optimum blood pressure, and manufacturing protein, bone and DNA health 👏👏👏 You can find magnesium naturally occurring in whole grains, dairy products, legumes, nuts, seeds, edamame (yay), white potatoes, soy cheese and green leafy veg!
This little guy 👆👆👆 is a magnesium oil spray. I'm giving it a go for relaxation purposes. Magnesium Oil naturally aids relaxation and relieves muscle tension. There hasn't been much research into whether a spray is as good as taking an oral supplement, but I do love an experiment 👏👏👏 It has been shown to reduce fibromyalgia symptoms such a pain. Always discuss with a doctor if you are unsure. I have found my skin tingles after an application, but this is quite common 💙
You're probably wondering why I chose to put my lovely 3 point Quartz in there.... just she dang pretty that's why 🤣 I'm also hoping that somehow being the ultimate healer she will amplify the oil and help help me sleep like a baby!🤔 #magnesium#sleepaid#insomnia#tension#relaxation#health#sleep#happiness#wellness#positivity#mentalhealth#holistictherapy#vibration#quartz

SÁBADO 01 DICIEMBRE - 10.30 A 13.30 hrs.
Trabajaremos con los músculos del cuello y la boca. El cuello como puente que conecta a nuestra cabeza inundada de ideas, pensamientos, y el cuerpo lleno de sensaciones, emociones y deseos. La zona cervical tiene estrecha relación con el control, con no dejarse ir y con la separación mente/cuerpo.
Mientras que a través de la boca yo expreso mis ideas, al trabajar esta zona, estimulo mi potencial expresivo y la capacidad de comunicar mi mundo interno libremente

Massage is the answer who cares what the question is 🤷♀️.. My massages work intuitively as I’m guided to the areas where blocks are held, care is needed and tension released. 💫 💙
Treat your whole self to some self care.
Do you suffer from TMJ?
I am looking for someone who will come in for a *FREE* treatment who would be willing to have their treatment filmed & share about the experience. I have had some recent training that offered me a great protocol for this condition and have been seeing some awesome results in the clinic. I am pretty confident I can relieve pain experienced by 50-100% during/after treatment and want to share the results so more folks are aware of acupuncture being a very effective treatment for this condition. Message me if you experience TMJ (headaches too!) and would like to give it a go. Let’s unwind that tension!! ✌️
And Soon The Darkness (1970)
Dir: Robert Fuest
Two young women on a summer vacation, in which they are biking across Southern France, find themselves wrapped up in a decade old murder mystery. When one of the young women mysteriously vanishes following an argument, it is up to her friend to figure out what has happened. Only now she finds herself alone in a foreign land, where she doesn't speak the native language, and cannot be sure who to trust.
Robert Fuest truly captures the heart and soul of Alfred Hitchcock's best films, and then sun-bakes it in a scortching bright color palette. Much like many later horror films, this one takes the "one long night of horror" and flips it around to be one long excruciating summers day. While the film sports a very slim cast, it's the gorgeous British actress Pamela Franklin who drives this home with a powerhouse performance. While the film is closer to a murder mystery or thriller than it is to horror, it manages to create a great creeping sense of dread and paranoia. The film is slowly paced, and while fans of more modern cinema might not understand whatt is to like, it is beautifully shot and maximizes France's countryside to maximum effect. Similar to Hitchcocks best films there is absolutely no hinting at who is or is not the killer, and plenty of red herrings are littered throughout. Certain a slow burn of a film, but a great example of how 70's British cinema set itself apart. Recommended on a rainy day.
