Logan Cipala dabbled in various sports as a child, but after trying out the typical sports that most children spend summers and weeknights playing, one uncommon sport stole his heart. "I played sports when I was younger, but it's amazing how much more exciting motoclimb is," Cipala said, describing his love for his chosen extreme sport. "For me, if I have a good ride, I'll get to the bottom of the hill and just be shaking. I can't even do anything about it."
The holidays are supposed to be a time for recuperating, catching up with loved ones and celebrating. However, enjoying the holidays can often be hindered by the fear of overeating and splurging on your favorite festive foods.
Springtime and warmer weather are supposed to induce greater motivation to get outside and exercise, especially in the bitterly cold Midwest where we have to take advantage of the weather when it's bearable. As it's begun to warm up, I've ditched the treadmill and enjoyed a few comfortable outdoor runs and bike rides, but I've also been drawn to patio happy hour specials, which aren't always helpful for hopeful dieters.
So, my February diet didn't go as well as planned. My meal planning wasn't as diligent as I had hoped, resulting in more eating out and buying snacks on the road while traveling. My workout routine took a minor hit as my desire to hop on a treadmill plummeted near Week 3 of the month. But that's OK — as long as I avoid overcompensating.
Making a conscious decision to start dieting can be daunting for many people. A dieting plan too often turns into a failed attempt at living healthier, causing people to stray away from even thinking about changing their eating and exercising habits. Or, in my case, dieting can be taken to unhealthy extremes that have lasting impacts on a person's physical and mental health.
