This is a journey of a personal fitness trainer and a stroke survivor client. This inspiring journey will bring hope and encouragement to those in recovery and their friends and family. This journey took us through rebuilding new pathways, feeling safe in movement again as well as fixing the foot drop and dealing with numbness and loss of sensations throughout the body. There are two goals for this book. One is sent personally from Gary´s heart with hopes that his story will help others in the same struggle he had faced. Don´t give up! Never quit! He encouraged others. As the fitness trainer, I wish the same, as well as hoping this journey bring insight and education to fellow fitness professionals to help them on their journeys with stroke survivor clients.

Whether preparing food, surfing the internet, or commuting to work, we´re looking for the smallest investment in time for the greatest return. And many times this means paying a little up front; which depending on our circumstances, the majority is obliged to do.Well, what if that same efficiency was possible with exercise?That all of the fat loss, muscle gain, cardiovascular and metabolic improvements, and reduction in disease risk and mortality can be achieved in far less time.Would you do it?If you´re already exercising this means more free time, so it´s an easy decision. And if you´re not already exercising, it´s just as easy; as once you understand that the investment in time is less than 100 minutes per week (1%), it´s a no brainer.

The New York Times best-selling author of The Beck Diet Solution teams up with her daughter and colleague at the Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior to teach listeners how to think their way thin, offering practical, proven tools for escaping common diet traps for good. Most diet programs work at first. But then life happens - stress, bad habits, holidays, travel - and we revert to bad habits, and the weight comes back. In this invaluable audiobook, Dr. Judith Beck offers the solution to break free from these common diet traps and keep the weight off for life. Dr. Beck explains that when it comes to losing weight, it´s not just about what we eat. It´s also about how we think. To consistently eat differently, we must learn to think differently. Diets fail us because they don´t offer effective strategies for overcoming the common traps - emotional eating, social pressure, dining out - that can derail us. Now she and her daughter, Deborah Beck Busis, share the techniques they have successfully used with thousands of clients, revealing how to overcome the thoughts and behaviors that have held us back. With The Diet Trap Solution, listeners on any diet regimen can learn to identify their specific diet traps and create action plans to strengthen their ´´resistance muscle´´ - making losing weight easy, sustainable, and enjoyable.

Learn how to tap into your brainpower and stress less to weigh less - and kick your sugar habit to the curb. ´´Like most people, I was not dealing well with the low levels of continuous stress in my life. Stress had me turning to comfort foods, which tend to be high in fat and sugar, and sometimes to alcohol. It was stress-induced overeating and under-exercising that was wreaking havoc on my body. And my brain was driving it all.´´ This book is not about dieting; as we know, diets may make us fatter and more stressed. Because it is not about willpower. It is about brainpower. When neuroscientist Dr. Selena Bartlett had this light-bulb moment, she was doing research on alcohol and sugar addiction. She sat at her desk for hours each day, ate poorly, rarely exercised, and unthinkingly reached for candy and cookies far too often. Then her lab discovered that sugar has exactly the same effect on the brain as alcohol and nicotine - one of the most addictive substances in the world. Selena realized you can use the power of neuroscience and neuroplasticity to retrain your brain to get the mindset that trims the body. In clear, accessible prose, she explains how stress affects the more primitive parts of the brain and stops us from exercising and eating properly and resisting sugar and alcohol - what Selena calls having a MiGGi moment (for the stressed out brain). She shows you how to become aware of those moments and how to respond instead of react to stress. There are simple tools and exercises to reboot your mindset, trim the body and transform your life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Selena Bartlett.

This focused fitness program was designed to assist the listener in enhancing positive willpower, increasing healthy habits and increasing motivation to follow through with fitness goals. Empowering thoughts create an empowered you! This audiobook is narrated by Anna Thompson, MA, MHP, LMHC, Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist. Thoughts, like energy, influence our emotions, our behaviors and our overall perception of ourselves and the world around us. What we focus on increases. So if we are focused on distractions, struggles, and pessimistic thoughts, we unconsciously and energetically attract more of the same. We can also use this incredible mental energy to create the inner and outer life we want. Through our thoughts, we are powerful enough to change ourselves, our relationships, and what we attract into our world. The music in this program was designed to enhance feelings of energy and optimism coupled with positive thoughts and beliefs related to the topic of your choice. It has been designed for those who prefer to listen while in the car or doing other things. From a practical perspective, what we tell ourselves on a consistent basis, our mind eventually accepts as fact. Those thoughts build momentum, creating corresponding emotions and behaviors that reinforce what we are consistently thinking. From a more metaphysical perspective, like attracts like. Whatever thought vibration you focus on regularly attracts more of the same. Why not use your vast mind potential to create what you really want? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anna Thompson.
