Soccer World Cup

first_imgI am certainly not an expert on soccer, but it was great to watch the United States Women dismantle Japan in the World Cup Final.  The USA team scored 4 goals in 16 minutes which is unheard of in professional soccer.  The 5-2 final is also a rarity in a final match.Carli Lloyd had the hat trick (3 goals by a single player in one game) for the United States.  It was also nice to watch a game where the teams just played soccer.  Although the officers of the World Soccer Association were arrested a few weeks ago, none of this was evident in the tournament.  For most of the tournament teams simply played soccer, and this was great for sports.last_img

Stay healthy during Thurston County fair time!

first_imgChriste Smith is the owner of Rock Bottom Personal Training. Rock Bottom serves all of Thurston County and offers customized fitness services in homes, workplaces, local parks and other locations to cater to the client. Rock Bottom has many Professional Certified trainers to help you with all your health needs About Rock Bottom Personal Training: So stay active at your cook outs and Thurston county fairs, all the while eat clean/healthy! most of all have a great happy and healthy Thurston county  summer! Facebook2Tweet0Pin0By Christe Smith I don’t know about you but I love the summer time here in Thurston County. So many  summer cook outs with friends & family, plus all the fairs that Thurston county has to offer and not to mention all the AMAZING food! I know for myself this is one of the hardest times of the year to stay on a clean/healthy eating lifestyle. The other thing that I love about cook outs  and Thurston county fairs, are all the fun physical activities. For example, this past 4th of July, I had the pleasure to be invited to our friends, that live on Thurston counties Long Lake. Since they live on Long Lake, I got to paddle boat out to middle of the lake to watch the fireworks. Before that we danced to great music and we even jumped on the trampoline like kids! So with Thurston counties Lake Fair approaching think of how you can be active….like go into the bounce house with your kids or ride your bike to the fair. Just remember that children learn by our examples…so take advantage of all the physical activities that Thurston county Lake Fair has to offer! So while you are chatting & laughing away at all these Thurston county events this summer, remember the 80 /20 rule. The rule is that, 80% of the time you eat and drink super clean/healthy plus exercise (with your favorite  Rock Bottom trainer :)) so that when the fair or cook out rolls around, you can step out of the clean/healthy eat box a little…and I do mean a LITTLE!  Please remember that when you do step out of the box,  it can be very…very hard to step back in. What I like to do is always bring a side dish that I know is clean to the cook out.  That way I can always eat clean/healthy at the event and not feel like I am missing out or be as tempted to reach for one of those same old cookout menu items that everyone brings. I also bring my own protein ( turkey burger, chicken dog, fish) to grill, because we all know what is in that commercially processed hamburger and hot dog..YUCK!!!!  While preparing for that day or evening at the  fair,  pack clean/healthy snacks and stay way from all the fried foods. Better yet look for grilled items that the vendors offer.last_img read more
