As promised in last week's post, here are a few tips from 21 Days to Better Fitness by Maggie Greenwood-Robinson, the book I'm currently reading as part of my initiative to continually remind and inform myself about healthy lifestyle topics.
Two simple nutrition guidelines:
1. Go For the Pure, Not the Processed
2. Stick to the Lean, Not to the Lard
"If you could bottle the benefits of exercise - which boosts your energy, makes you lose weight, bolsters your immune system, lifts depression, protects you from heart attacks, and even stretches your active years - it would be the most prescribed medication in the world."
"Exercise trains not only the body but also the mind."
"Inner conversations can have a powerful impact on motivation and well-being."
"Reading articles and books on nutrition and exercise is an excellent inducement because it increases your knowledge of fitness and helps you maintain motivation." Now, haven't I been saying that same thing all along! :>)
I'll be finishing up the book this week and will share more nuggets of wisdom from it in next week's post. Hope y'all are having a great weekend!
