Regular Exercise

Strectching During ExerciseLet’s face it, you haven’t been exercising enough and you’ve gained too much weight.  So unless you’re happy with the extra weight, it’s time for a change.  Diet and exercise are just going to have to be a part of your life, so try to make the best of it!

If you exercise regularly, you will lose more weight.  You’ll be more confident and have better self-esteem.  Yes, eating right will help you lose weight.  So will exercise.  Doing both together produces the best results allowing you to lose mostly fat and build muscle.  Exercise will also increase the metabolic rate of your body even hours after exercise.

Maybe you’ve been on a workout hiatus.  Or, maybe you’re getting started with exercise for the first time.  Either way, set time aside every day for exercise or some kind of activity.  In fact, here are over 2 dozen 20 minute workouts you can do in your home, office, lunch time, or local gym.  Stop being so lazy.  Set a goal of a minimum of 20 minutes of exercise, daily.  It’s really not a lot of time.  Just go for it.  Only you can improve your situation.

Some of you will care enough to adopt and rigorously perform some specifically recommended exercises daily.  You’ll care so much, that the flexibility and skill with which you come to execute these exercises will, at first, amaze you, and then fill you with pride.

So, how much do you really care?

Bad Eating Habits

Healthy Food vs. Unhealthy Food

Healthy Food vs. Unhealthy Food

Everybody has bad habits, and especially when it comes to eating.  The question is how much you really care to change?

It’s no secret that I love to eat.  I am borderline hypertension so it puts a blemish on my choice of food.   Fried foods, in particular.  But, here’s the thing: bad eating habits make you fat, sluggish and generally unhealthy.  I don’t want that for myself nor do I want that for you.  So, I encourage you to make healthy food choices.

Here are some tips to get results:

  • Drink more water
  • Choose low sodium seasonings (e.g., Mrs. Dash),
  • Broil or bake your food,
  • Skim off excess fat,
  • Add more fruits and veggies,
  • Don’t skip meals, and
  • Stay away from cookies, pastries and candy.

Most of you know what’s right and wrong, so stop eating what’s wrong.  Some of you will care enough to completely change your eating habits.  In fact, you’ll care so much that you will radically change both the quality and quantity of the foods you eat daily.

So, how much do you really care?
