JANUARY CAR SAFETY There are several things you can do to stay safe  throughout the winter months. These actions maximize your car’s ability to keep you and your family safe during a winter storm. First, put a “winter supply” box in your car. A quick list of items you should include are a flashlight, road flares, first-aid kit, a few blankets, change of warm clothes for the driver, pairs of gloves, radio, charged cellphone for 911 calls, bag of sand (for traction), extra ice scraper, bottled water and some high-energy snacks (like nuts or jerky).  Throughout the winter, be sure to frequently check your engine coolant and antifreeze levels.

AFTER THE HOLIDAYS, WE MAY NOTICE WE ARE CARRYING A FEW EXTRA POUNDS ON OUR BODIES. Even eating our customary diet can sometimes result in gradual weight gain through the years. No matter what your target weight is, try to implement healthy approaches  as we begin 2020 to make sure your outlook on diet and exercise can carry you through many years to come.

for weight maintenance as we age. Haylee concurs, pointing out that it is easy to gain back lost weight if you don’t add muscle during your weight loss journey. “Losing weight is exciting and motivating, but when you get to your goal, it can be easy for old habits to come back,” says Haylee. “Even if you are happy with your weight, find something other than the number to motivate you: join a running group or make cooking new healthy recipes a weekly hobby.”

“Even if you are happy with your weight, find something other than the number to motivate you: join a running group or make cooking new healthy recipes a weekly hobby.” The Weight Loss Center at West Chester Hospital’s campus sees a variety of referrals from other departments where weight loss can help to improve outcomes. “We’ll work with people who are losing weight to achieve other health goals, such as those who want to lose weight to successfully recover from knee surgery,” says Haylee. If you are looking for simple steps to start this January off right with choices that help you lose or maintain your weight, Haylee recommends a mindful approach. “We know that self-monitoring is a big piece of the puzzle. Keep a food record of whatever you are eating using an app like MyFitnessPal,” says Haylee. “Then focus on changes you can control, like putting carrots in your lunch or packing workout clothes for after work, rather than a particular number of pounds to lose.” If you want further accountability and assistance in your weight loss journey, know that you are not alone; you can contact the Weight Loss Center today to learn more about their programs and services.

people don’t lose pounds, but they lose inches – some lose both.”

West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle | January 2020


Eating healthy doesn’t mean you need to nibble on raw carrots and celery all day. This program comes with over 30 delicious recipes including cilantro lime cauliflower “rice,” portobello mushroom burgers and sweet potato hash. Our test kitchen made a few alterations to their tomato bisque soup and zucchini noodles recipes to create this delicious and healthy alternative to spaghetti with meat sauce—zoodles with mushroom marinara. Rita encourages people to expel any preconceptions they may have of cleansing and give this one a try. “It’s more than a cleanse, it’s a lifestyle change,” she says. “It’s teaching your body to learn what’s good for it in the healthy way.” To learn more, contact Rita at ThinkHealthyToo@gmail.com.

Zoodles with Mushroom Marinara INGREDIENTS + 28 oz. can whole tomatoes, drained + 3-4 Tbsp. olive oil + 2 carrots, peeled and chopped + 1 shallot, quartered + ¼ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes + Pepper + 1 garlic clove, minced + 1 Tbsp. tomato paste + 14 oz. can crushed fire roasted tomatoes + ½ cup low-sodium vegetable broth + 8 oz. fresh mushrooms, diced + 2 medium zucchini or yellow squash DIRECTIONS 01 Preheat oven to 400. 02 In a bowl, combine whole tomatoes, carrots, shallots and ½ Tbsp. of olive oil and toss to coat. Spread on a baking sheet and season with pepper. Roast in oven 30 minutes. 03 Sauté mushrooms in 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil to desired doneness. Set aside. 04 Add 2 Tbsp. olive oil to a medium pot and heat. Add crushed red pepper flakes and garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Add tomato paste and cook 1 minute. Add vegetable broth and cook another 2 minutes. Add roasted vegetables and crushed tomatoes, season with pepper and simmer for 15 minutes. 05 While marinara simmers, spiralize the zucchini and squash using a spiralizer to create the zoodles. 06 Heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a sauté pan on medium. Once warm, toss half the zoodles in the oil and cook, tossing frequently until desired doneness is reached (about 2-4 minutes). Add a little more oil and repeat with the remaining zoodles. 07 Use food processor or immersion blender to mix the marinara until ingredients have reached desired texture. Once done blending, add mushrooms to the sauce. 08. Place zoodles on each plate and top with marinara. Add fresh parsley if desired. *Our recommendation is that no cleanse should be started without the help of a wellness professional and approval from a doctor.

NO PAIN, ALL GAIN

(CON TI N U ED)

STEP UP YOUR G AME Stay off the sidelines with these four features available to Stretch and Recover members:

ASSISTED STRETCHING Take your post-workout stretches to the next level with hands-on service from trained specialists. The assisted stretching technique targets tightness to improve mobility, allowing athletes to bend freely without the nagging tenderness of overworked muscles. Therapists identify trouble spots and isolate and manipulate deep tissues to eliminate pain.

DEEP THERMAL LASER SESSIONS Do you know that heavy, achy feeling you get after an intense workout? Deep thermal lasers can be used either before or after training to prevent the muscle soreness associated with vigorous exercise. Lasers emit soothing heat and stimulate tissues at the cellular level, regenerating healthy tissues, promoting recovery and preventing pain. Lasers are fast, effective and feel good.

MUSCLE RECOVERY BOOTS AND SLEEVES Circulation and inflammation issues can slow down even the best competitors. NormaTec Recovery Boots and Sleeves wrap trouble spots like legs, knees, shoulders and elbows with healing pressure that enhances circulation. As blood flow increases, it flushes out toxins and revives exhausted tissues, improving mobility and speeding recovery. With just a few minutes of treatment, recovery boots and sleeves eliminate swollen and throbbing muscles.

DISCOUNTED SERVICES In addition to the regular, monthly treatments offered to its members, Stretch and Recover includes unlimited discounted services of supportive therapies, ranging from emergency visits to traditional physical therapy exercises, from additional sessions of the techniques featured above to the ancient therapy of cupping (shown on the left). Made popular by stars like Michael Phelps and Gwyneth Paltrow, cupping is designed to create suction to decrease pain, tension and inflammation by increasing blood flow, especially to deep-tissue areas. 24

NICK HAGGLUND FC Cincinnati soccer player and West Chester native Nick Hagglund learned to love soccer on the field at Liberty Junior School, with his dad coaching him to love the game. Dad taught Nick about giving 110 percent and enjoying yourself on the field.  “He’s the most fun guy ever,” Nick says.  Nick made the decision at the young age of six that one day he would play professional soccer. So he did. After playing five years for FC Toronto, he watched intently as Cincinnati formed a team, then traded before last season. Returning to his hometown was a dream. Nick remembers practices at Keehner Park. He calls himself an active kid, typically playing four to five sports at a time. He remembers his past coaches who made him who he is today: Steve McCullough, Rick Duff, Dan Lueking and Lakota West coach Rick Cooper.  “[Rick Cooper] was the first coach that yelled at me, but in a good way… in a work-your-butt-off kind of way,” Nick says.  During his early years in high school, he was well-known for running the Lakota West track in his free time in preparation

After he graduated in 2010 from Lakota West, he played for

and worked through appendix surgery and injuries. Experiences from his youth brought strength in the tough times. “There were not a lot of good days, but I put my head down and worked hard,” Nick shares. ”Take your shovel to work and trudge... there’s an opportunity every day to get better.” The future is bright as he enters his second season at FC Cincinnati with great potential ahead. He is living in Oakley with his wife Mary, his childhood friend and neighbor in West Chester, and their young daughter. 

“My wife is grounding for me,” he says. “The pro soccer world is grueling. My wife could always point me in the right direction, to what’s important.” Nick credits his wife with handling everything when he’s gone, and calls himself an “all-hands-on” dad and husband when he’s home. His keys to success and wellness are effort, attitude and pursuing a “growth mindset.” “Making a mistake is never a mistake,” Nick says.  That’s why I’m where I am today.”

WO R KO U T S F O R YO U R MOODS NEED A PICK-ME-UP, BUT DON’T QUITE HAVE THE ENERGY? THESE ACTIVITIES WILL GET YOU MOVING AND OUT OF YOUR POST-HOLIDAY FUNK

NEW YEAR, NEW US. We don’t mean to be cliché, but is there really any better time for working on yourself than when Jan. 1 rolls around—whether you’re focused on your physical health or your mental health? It sure seems like the perfect time, but there will also be days when you’re just not quite feeling it. The holidays are over, the days are shorter and, let’s face it, there’s not really a ton to look forward to until spring sprouts. But, whatever your mood is this time of year, there’s still an activity you can do that’s worthwhile—and will give you a boost! Here’s how to choose the right one.

YO G A A regular yoga practice can help to ease anxiety by increasing body awareness, reducing muscle tension, relieving stress

FEELING ANXIOUS

and sharpening attention + concentration.

01 R AG D O L L Ragdoll pose is great for relaxation and to release tension. Stand tall + reach your arms up, then allow them to fall gently toward the floor as you bend down.

02 C H I L D ’ S P O S E This calming and restorative pose is a common beginner’s position. Starting from your knees, sit back on your heels then walk your arms forward, bringing your torso down until you can rest your forehead on the floor.

03 S AVA S A N A Relax one body part at a time, one muscle at a time + one thought at a time through a daily Savasana practice.

FEELING BORED

CLIMBING When you feel like you’re in a rut with your workouts and just don’t feel motivated anymore, try something new and exciting! Rock climbing is a great way to introduce something different without it feeling like a workout.

01 C L I M B I N G GYM S Climbing gyms have been popping up everywhere as the sport becomes more mainstream + are a great option for those who prefer to be adventurous indoors.

02 B O U L D E R I N G Bouldering, great for developing power, is a type of rock climbing where the climber doesn’t use ropes or harnesses, generally done on a much smaller scale.

03 S H A P E U P Since climbing can use different muscles from traditional workouts, it’s important to keep up with strengthening those. Key areas to pay attention to include upper body, lower body, core, fingers and wrists.

West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle | January 2020


RUNNING There’s a reason people who are active runners describe something called a “runner’s high.” Studies show that aerobic exercises release

mood-boosting endorphins.

BEGINNERS If you want to get into running but aren’t sure where to start, check out a couch-to-5K program to ease into it.

C A S UA L R U N N E R S Challenge yourself by switching up your running routine. Whether you’re changing your route or upping your distance, a new twist could give you a nice refresh.

ENTHUSIASTS Whether you’re into 10Ks or half marathons, consider signing up for a new race and decreasing your time.

When your head is full of thoughts, it can get overwhelming. High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) provides a break from that with short bursts of 100% focus followed by rest. Here’s a quick circuit.
