FITNESS TIPS

learn more about LVSL

First off, make it a priority

Remember, excuses don’t burn calories! So whether it’s a New Year resolution or you’ve reached that point where your weight and current fitness levels are unacceptable, you need to make a conscious decision to prioritize your health and act on it.

Make small lifestyle modifications

Small steps can go a long way. For instance, take the stairs instead of the lift or escalator, walk down to nearby areas to get food or groceries instead of ordering in. Walk around your house or step outside to take a call instead of staying seated. When at work, walk over to a colleague’s desk to talk instead of calling them or emailing them.

Be an active watcher and/or cut back on screen time

While watching TV (we know you need the news) or listening to music, do some stretching, squats, lunges or pushups instead of sitting on the couch. Keep some basic fitness equipment like a jump rope or resistance bands around you to make the most of that time.

Alternatively, cut back on the time you spend scrolling through your FB/Twitter or Instagram feed (for the sixth time) and devote that time to something more important, like your health.

Plan your workout efficiently

Find and create a workout that fits into your busy schedule and doesn’t require much preparation. Work some High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), TRX or other short workouts in to your day. These workouts do not require any extensive gym equipment and can be easily performed at home.

Something is better than nothing

If you can’t devote time to a full workout, take out whatever time you can, to get your heart pumping and the sweat dripping. Increase the intensity of your workout or work on an otherwise neglected body part. Save the long workouts for the days when you have more time. Even a short walk will put you ahead of people who are sitting on the couch, doing nothing.

Manage your food intake better

Last but not least, when you’re struggling with time, your diet becomes even more important. Keep some fruits and other healthy snacks handy, so that you don’t add to your problems (read calories), by gorging on junk food.

    My 91 year old father-in-law was in independent living and the day before Thanksgiving fell and was hospitalized. He was dumped into a horrible skilled nursing/rehab facility where he rapidly deteriorated and then with no warning we were given a few days to then find a new place for him to live. After hours of frustrating phone calls I luckily found a link for LVSL which recently opened. I called up and spoke with Greg who was informative and friendly. We went down to visit and were instantly impressed by the welcoming atmosphere, the friendly, professional staff and incredibly clean facility. Stephen and Greg answered all our questions and introduced us to the staff. We moved my father-in-law in the next day and we could not be more pleased. He has thrived at LVSL. The nursing staff has communicated with us and gone out of their way to make him feel welcome and cared for. The cooks have worked with us to ensure that he has food he enjoys eating. The staff even went so far as to rewire his room so we could accommodate his large TV which he needs due to macular degeneration. They treat my father-in-law with great dignity and are pushing him hard to regain mobility. We are so grateful for the caring staff and welcoming home they have provided. As Livermore residents we feel so lucky to have LVSL here in town. This is an amazing facility with a caring, well-trained staff.

    I was visiting a number of assisted living facilities in the area and was really impressed by the knowledge and promptness of their Retirement Councillor Greg Green. He was polite and very prompt in answering all my questions. Their model of care is much different then most places that they have nurses on staff in addition to normal care givers.

    In a very short timeframe, we were faced with finding care for our mother and moving her to California. We had visited other facilities in Livermore and had a decision in mind, but while driving down East Avenue one Sunday afternoon, we decided to stop at LVSL and take a look. We were greeted warmly by Stevie, one of the LVNs on staff. She graciously walked us through the facility and answered our many questions. LVSL is a small, intimate facility and the LVN/caregiver-to-resident ratio is great. The LVNs are on staff 24/7, which is very reassuring. The caregivers are kind, patient, and respectful of the residents' privacy and personal needs. The chefs are very pleasant and provide a good balanced diet. LVSL occasionally hosts entertainment for the residents and their families, e.g., comedians from SF and musicians from local schools. The facility is very clean, laundry services are good, and the residents have a beautiful garden in which to enjoy the fresh air. Mom's had some ups and downs during this initial transition period, and we are all working together to ensure she's safe and comfortable. We consider ourselves and Livermore lucky to have this new facility available to those we love.
