Here we are. Into the New Year. Tackling that annual fitness resolution once again. But how is it going to be different this year? Well, to make it a lasting lifestyle change, we must work exercise and nutrition into our daily life, not the other way around. Use the guidance in this link to set realistic goals for a healthy lifestyle.
Exercising specific body parts does not reduce fat stores in those areas. For example, more situps will not reduce belly fat. Proper nutrition—reducing all around calories—and full-body cardiovascular and resistance (weight-bearing) exercises to burn stored fat is the best general prescription for fat loss. However, spot training certain muscle groups can make them stronger and better toned. Read the discussion at this link for good exercises in the gynoid region (hips/thighs/buttocks).
For a long time, it has often been said, “we are what we eat.” That is as true today as it has always been. The nutrition and fuel we put into our bodies determine what comes from our bodies. Junk in, junk out. Read this short article.
Here we go. All the Resolutionaries are gearing up to begin the year seeking their health and fitness. Unfortunately, many soon suffer a lapse and throw up their hands in defeat. We all suffer lapses in our fitness journeys. The key to success is getting up and prodding on from that lapse. Fitness is a lifestyle, not a destination. Follow this link for tips to a successful resolution.
Our children rely upon us to take care of them, ensuring they are safe and healthy. No, they do not always appreciate what we sometimes make them do—like enforcing their bedtimes—but we must insist. It is for their best interests!
