I just joined the UFC Gym. I gotta tell you when I got the tour of the place I felt like the beginning of my healthy and sexy life begin. I am ready!!
I am participating in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in San Francisco this July. I will walk for 2 days and 39 miles and push myself to do something big to help raise awareness and funding for a devastating disease.
Every three minutes someone in the U.S. is diagnosed and a staggering 1 in 8 women in the U.S.will develop breast cancer. Every woman is at risk, because we don’t know how to prevent it yet.
But you and I can do something to help. Let’s make a deal! If you make a donation, I’ll do all of the walking! Please click here to contribute to my efforts. Please donate today.
I thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your support and encouragement. When I hit the road, I’ll know that you were a special part of my journey.

Thank you very much for your support.
This is a great visual of fat and muscle!
Notice how although both are the same weight, the muscle is much smaller? That’s because muscle is denser than fat. Muscle is also metabolically active tissue.
Metabolic rate is determined by the amount of fat-free mass in your body. Fat-free Mass (FFM) is made up of internal organs, muscle, and bone. So basically, the more muscle you have, the higher your metabolic rate will be. That’s one of the reasons why weight training is very important to overall fat-reduction. A higher metabolic rate = more calories burned, which makes it easier to lose body fat! (That’s a simplified explanation, but you get the idea!). =)
Wow that is crazy!!
