Inside Everyone There Is A Champion!

I found inspiration in this article from Maria Adelus,  MaxFormation Champion 2010

I remember that around this time last year I was preparing myself for the MaxFormation champion announcement.  I had made it to the top 10 but the online voting became more nerve-racking as each week passed.  Every day I had to tell myself over and over that I was a champion to matter what the outcome of the MaxFormation or figure competetion I was about to embark on.  I was a champion no matter what because I gave my all.  I was a champion because I believed in myself.  I was a champion because I never gave up.

Maria Adelus

There is a quote that I used to recite to myself as I was preparing for both the MaxFormation and ny very first figure competition.  Lao Tzu once said,  “By letting, it all gets done.  The world is beyond the winning.”

At first this quote ay seem the exact opposite of what any kind of competitor should live by.  However, If you think about it enough,  it makes perfect sense.  A true competitor competes out of his or her passion in the sport itself.    A true competitor competes for a reason that goes much deeper than the desre for fame or money that may come with winning first place.  It is only when a competitor releases the pressure for a win that is based on fame or money, that he or she actually becomes a champion.

As the new MaxFormation champion arises at the end of June, I want to congratulate him or her on a job well done.  However, I also want to encourage the rest of the competitors and tell you that you are all winners.  You are winners simply because of your effort, your faith and your perserverance.  Fame and money may be fleeting but our passion and drive to be a healthier you will never leave as long as you continue to nurture it.  Your ability to inspire others and continually make improvements in your fitness goals will always be at the tip of your fingers.  Each day you will continue to have the power to make a difference in yourself and the world around you.  Whether you are recognized for it or not does not make you anything less than a champion if you truly gave it your all.

Ultimately, the only way you will ever lose in your journey to fitness is if you quit.  All of you, however, have shown your perseverance in healthy living for the past several months.  Because of your perseverance, I have faith in each of you to continue to be a champion not only to yourself but also to those around you.  Don’t let this competition make you feel any less than the greatest of champions.  Continue to strive towards a better life with passion.   And remember what Mike Tysone once said: “Champions don’t quit.”

Want Diabetes? Watch More TV!

Want Diabetes? Watch More TV!
Want Diabetes, Watch More TV

 . . . or exercise while you watch and get healthier!

Scientists at Harvard have found that each 2 hours of daily TV viewing raises your risk of Type II diabetes by 20%. Since the average American sits glued to the boob tube 5 hours a day, that’s an increased risk of 50%. And diabetes isn’t the only hazard of watching TV — each 2 hours daily also raises your risk of heart disease by 15% and your risk of death from any cause by 13%.


Watching TV has often been associated with obesity and an unhealthy diet. A study done a few years ago found that overweight kids who watch food advertisements on TV tend to double their food intake.


But I’ll bet the real culprit here is sitting hour after hour and, as a result, getting little exercise. The human body needs movement, exertion and challenge; without them nothing functions as it should.

New market touts eco-friendly vendors

Environmentally conscious mart will debut Aug. 6, much to the delight of O.C. ‘greenies.’


When entrepreneur Rana Sabeh couldn’t find available vendor space to showcase her discount natural products business, she decided to create her own alternative ‘green’ market.

The Orange County Green Market debuts Aug. 6 at the Irvine Valley College.  Everything from eco-friendly cleaning supplies and services , repurposed accessories, natural skin care products and Sabeh’s own business Healthy Bargains will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.   Saturdays in the college’s parking lot.

“I figured that if I’m an eco-friendly vendor trying to get out on the market and I can’t then there must be others like e who are also having a hard time,” Sabeh, a Huntington Beach resident, said of her decision to launch the market.

With room to fit up to about 80 vendors lined up for the opening weekend with more expected to sign on as the market grows.

No environmentally friendly vendors will be turned away from her market, she said.

“I really want to build a community, for the market to unite what I call the ‘greenies,'” she said.

However, the market is also build on a foundation of education, she said.

Some of the vendor spaces will be  occupied by nonprofits which advocate to raise awareness of ‘green’ lifestyle practces.

“I also want to pull in people who don’t know about living green and educate the to see how t can fit into their liifestyle,” Sabeh said.  “It’s an opportunity for them to understand that it’s a win-win for their health, families and for the environment, as well.”

The market also has an educational component for IVC’s green initiative and business students: free vendor space.

While details are still being worked out, a limited number of students will be able have access to real-world entrepreneurial experience of running a small business — something Sabeh wishes she had access to in college, she said.

“What Rana is doing is very exciting for us at the college,” said Jeff Hurlbut, the college’s director of facilities and maintenance. “Moving forward, we’re trying to gear things and events so students can have interaction in it.”

The college hosts seasonal vendors such as pumpkin and tree lots as well as the occasional craft or car show, Hurlbut said.

Although the market came too late to be worked into this semester’s curriculum, future semesters may hold the opportunity for students to earn course credit for their partcipation, Hurlbut said.

“I don’t know yet what’s going to happen.” Hurlbut said.   “But I ‘m excited to see what students will do with the opportunity.”

Stem-Cell Hopes Get A Home At University of California Irvine

$80 million research center readies for cutting-edge work.

UC Irvine ( University of California at Irvine) is soon to open an $80 million stem-cell research center – a four -story, 100,000 square foot building where researchers will investigate using stem cells to help people with spinal cord injury as well as Alzheimer’s disease, macular degeneration and other illnesses.  The center’s director gives an early tour of the building.

The $80 million stem-cell research center at UC Irvine still has that new-building smell.  The offices and meeting rooms are barren of furniture, and the empty laboratory shelves and benches wait to be filled.

“It does look like an IKEA catalog doesn’t it?” Peter Donovan, a UCI stem-cell researcher who will serve as the center’s drector, said on a tour of the new building this week.

But soon after the formal dedication of the center May 14, researchers will begin moving into the four-story structure — one shaped as much by the politics of stem-cell science as the needs of the scientists themselves.  It is one of several such centers being built around the state and the first to be completed in Southern California.

“This building I think will become the hub of all stem-cell research on the UCI campus and allow us to provide better outreach to the public and the other institutions we collaborate with,” Donovan said.

Scientists have high hopes for the center, which will house about a dozen laboratories, a dozen researchers, and 120 students, postdoctoral researchers and technicians.

The scientists hope to test the recovery and measure effects on patients – including those who have suffered strokes or eye disorders such as macular degeneration — who were treated with stem cells at other facilities.

The center includes an enclosed room for eye patients, so light can be strictly controlled, and a large, open room for patients treated for spinal injuries, stroke, Parkinson’s and other neuromotor diseases.

“You need a lot of space to allow them to walk, to measure their movement, test their recover,” Donovan said.

Scientists at the center will also keep track of a much-anticipated study: Geron Corp.  plans to begin one of the first Food and Drug Administration-approved embryonic stem-cell clinical trials on human spinal-cord patients.

The trial will be based on pioneering work by UC Irvine neurobiologist Hans Keirstead, who will also have an office in the new center.

Stem cells have the capacity to transform into a variety of cell types, potentially regenerating cells damaged by Huntington’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s and other illnesses.  They might also one day restore movement to limbs paralyzed by spinal injuries.

Even after President Barack Obama’s well-publicized lifting of Bush-era restrictions on stem-cell research, some restrictions on federal funding are still in effect, Donovan said.

So scientists must rely largely on state money – $27.2 million from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine – and on the donors.  They include Laguna Beach’s Sue and Bill Gross, who provided a $10 million gift that attracted more funding.

Large spaces in the center can be used not only for scientific meetings but for fundraising events.

BRAIN STORM “Oxygen Under Pressure”

I was told about this documentary by Teri Rich of Hyperbaric Healing Systems, Inc. in Salt Lake City. This is an outstanding film that talks about the healing benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for our returning veterans. The documenary was done by a Los Angeles film student, John Salcedo. Below is the YouTube trailer.

I especially liked the millet dish. I had never known how to prepare it. The  tahini dressing was divine.
Do you have a recipe for peanut sauce? I like it on rice and vegetables.
