Slipping Back, we hear about it all of the time with addictions, relationships, work, parenting school ... literally everywhere. I found myself slipping back during my trip to Russia this summer.   It's so interesting. On my trip back to Russia this summer, I felt myself reverting back to the way I was prior to moving to Canada.  I used to be a less positive person.  [caption id="attachment_591" align="alignnone" width="225"] Smolensk[/caption] Slipping Back I was trying to hold it back, but I could feel myself slipping back.I found myself slipping back to the way that I was when I was living

Make Exercise Enjoyable | Walking

Irina Marchenkova, Make Exercise Enjoyable, Walking, Fit at Forty

It is important to make exercise enjoyable and entertaining. Exercise does not have to be exhaustive, it can be as simple as talking a walk on a Saturday afternoon along the waterfront. Today, I spent a couple of hours walking along the Toronto Waterfront at an easy pace. I had a wonderful time, just enjoying the lake and the park. I thought to myself, but am I really getting any exercise without working up a sweat, or was this just for fun? To get the aerobic exercise, walking should be brisk. But even walking at an easy pace works your

being positive, positive thinking, irina marchenkova, fit at forty

Being positive is more than just thinking in a positive way.  Let me give you an example. A couple of months ago a friend of mine had an accident water skiing. he pulled the muscle in his leg right off the bone. he had to have the surgery and he may never walk again the same way. When I heard about this the first thing I said to my friend is you know it could have been so much worse. As a positive person, he took the same position. We don't know what the alternative to the bad things that

Many people just don't really understand the Law of Attraction. Many think that you just imagine what you want and all of a sudden... it’s there. That is not how it works. Because people don't understand it, people think that it doesn’t work, and only because it didn’t produce the instant desired results.This law always works, since it is how the Universe works. It's like the Law of Gravity; you can’t see it and you often aren’t consciously aware of it. However, if you observe closely you can very easily see the law in action. The article below by Irina

Training vs Nutrition: Which is more important?

It is impossible to separate the influences of training vs nutrition on fitness. When considering overall fitness it is important to separate fitness into cardio and weight or resistance training.  These three operate with each other and influence each other. You will have to consider all of diet and caridio and weight training if you want to lose weight or gain muscle.  It is a three point solution: I would say that it is impossible to say which one is more important, but one or more may be more important depending on your fitness experience. Training vs Nutrition for the
