When your fitness training philosophy communicates a clear understanding of your long term “why,” your plan becomes easier to activate and sustain. The human body, mind and spirit are amazing and complex interdependent systems, which respond and, if you're recovering adequately, adapt to training. A well-defined blueprint can deliver benefits, but your progress can be limited if your goals are unclear. Identifying your philosophy to optimize your fitness, performance and health requires a bit of planning and ongoing attention. The mind-body connection is strong. We know that physical training impacts our state of mind and vice versa, and that our intentions influence our results. When the “why” is clear, the “how” becomes easy.

I found myself choosing to communicate with my husband and trust that my vulnerability will only help him understand me and love me more...

The word Post Traumatic Stress DISORDER is ridiculous. I understand the Post Traumatic Stress part but the DISORDER? Why? Does having PTS really mean you have a disorder. Maybe to a clinical psychologists who refer to the DSM IV to diagnose a certain mental health issue it can be a disorder.
