With all the new technology out there, it’s easier for folks to break into your car! When locking your car remotely, hit your lock key/button THREE TIMES! This will scramble the security signal to a degree that thieves can’t get in!

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Each year it is estimated that over 220,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 will die. Please take all the necessary steps toward early detection and encourage others to do the same!

Performing monthly breast exams is a must! When breast cancer is detected early (localized stage), the 5-year survival rate is 98%! Early warning signs of breast cancer may involve the discovery of a new lump or a change in the breast tissue or skin.

Mammogram Recommendations for All Women:
* Women 40 and older should have mammograms every one or two years.
* Women who are younger than 40 and have risk factors for breast cancer should as their healthcare professional whether mammograms are advisable and how often to have them.

Proper screening, increased awareness, and early detection are necessary if we are to continue the decline in breast cancer incidence rates. The National Breast Cancer Foundation partners with medical facilities across the country, providing FREE mammograms and diagnostic breast cancer services to underserved women through the NBCF National Mammography Program. To learn more please go to their website http://www.nationalbreastcancer.org/nbcf-programs/patient-services.

Summer is right around the corner, so get ready for those warmer temps and their impact on training. Drink at least 16 – 20 ounces prior to training….proper hydration is key to sustaining your workouts in warmer temps. If you haven’t eaten in 3+ hours, eat a light snack of mainly fast-digesting carbs (fruits, bars, shakes, etc.) with just a touch of protein no less than 20 -30 minutes prior to training. (The ratio should be 2:1 or 3:1 carbs to proteins).
If you’re doing an extensive workout or are outside, make sure your drink has an electrolyte component that includes sodium….need to replenish what sweat has depleted.
Hydrate continuously during your workouts for optimal performance and muscle health…..and remember…..always put some fun in your training!!!
