What a delightful afternoon with some of the best entertainers, entrepreneurs, and Dads on the east coast.

I got to hang out with some very distinguished gentlemen, sign a few books, and offer a toast that included wellness tips from each chapter of Celebrate Life.

3 Ways to Spring Into Fitness from Marcello Pedalino, CFT, author of Celebrate Life:

1) Hydrate and Eat Properly

Be sure to drink plenty of water. It helps boost your immune system, it’s good for your skin, and it helps with weight loss. Many people often confuse being hungry with being thirsty.

Eat healthy snacks and drink protein shakes that are tasty and convenient. Take a few minutes in the morning to pack smart for the day and avoid going through unhealthy drive through.

2) Try Yoga, Swimming, or a 5k

The best way to ease into a fitness routine is to do full body workouts that are gentle on the joints. Yoga and swimming are the best.

You can also try walking, jogging, or running a local 5k. I recommend doing it with a few friends or family members so you have some accountability partners to keep you on track during training.

The cool thing about a 5k is that you can also raise money for a great cause at the same time. One of the best ways to feel good about yourself is doing something good to someone else.

3) Cross Train and Keep it Fun!

Going to the gym can get pretty boring pretty quick if you don’t mix up your workouts Variety is the spice of life. And remember, Spring is Mother Nature’s way of saying, “Hey! Let’s Party!” Get outside! Try hiking, biking, & kayaking. It’s a great way to avoid muscle complacency and stay motivated.

You can even dance your way into a better body! Try doing the Cha Cha Slide “Plank Challenge!”

3 Ways to Come Back Refreshed and Recharged After Vacation

No Gym? No Problem! Marcello Pedalino, author of Celebrate Life, with 3 Tips for Travel Wellness from MMP Entertainment: Marcello on Vimeo.

So maybe you just spent the last 3 months working your butt off to get back into to shape for your friend’s wedding, because you’re turning 30/40/50, or because you wanted to look good in your bathing suit for an upcoming vacation… then you come home and the wheels fall off again. Why? This little article might help you keep up the momentum during your transition back to home and work.

1) No gym? No problem.  Take a look around and work with what you have.  Explore your new location and get creative.  Just the fact that you are breathing in fresh air and feeling the bright  sunshine on your face instead of being inside a dark and smelly spin class room will make for a great way to start the day!

Whatever you do, try to avoid the typical tourist trap of passing out by the pool without any sun screen on in the middle of the day after a night of drinking too much… especially, on the last day of your trip.  Returning to work the day after with a sunburn, headache, and a bloated belly might affect your mood and productivity level just a tad.

2) Eat, Drink, and Be Merry… but Be Responsible.  You’re on vacation so of course you can treat yourself to a few nice dinners and indulge in life’s deliciousness.  However, try to find a hotel/condo where you can walk or bike into town each day, buy fresh ingredients, and cook your own tasty meals.  Not only will you enjoy meeting the locals and learning about their culture, you’ll be in charge of the food portions when it’s time to eat.  (Destination restaurants, like those in the states, are infamous for piling things on and encouraging guests to overeat.)

3) Unplug and Look Up.  Don’t spend the majority of your vacation staring down at your phone mindlessly thumbing and scrolling though your social media feeds with your headphones on.  Not only will you miss out on most of the sights and sounds of your destination, you’ll be one of the worst travel companions to your friends or family. If you want to completely ignore everyone and be obsessed with your phone, you can do that at home and save yourself a bunch of money.  Find a book (an actual book), a magazine about one of your  favorite hobbies, or go old-school and play some games that are fun and keep your brain from turning to mush ( for the times that just sitting still and relaxing aren’t good enough for you ).

Safe travels!

Cheers,
