Great - we all made it through January! Sure, January started off the year, but to me, everyday is a new beginning. I was recently looking into tennis league sign-up, and came across a great quote by Arthur Ashe. When asked how to be great, Ashe said, "Start where you are, use what you've got, and do what you can." The reason I love this quote, is because it's so basic and true.
The breakfast is called the most important meal of the day for a reason. What you eat and how much you eat in the early hours sets the tone for the rest of the day. And yes, you should, indeed, eat a breakfast like a king.First things first: never skip a breakfast. You do not want to “diet” or starve through the day, you want to nurture your body, virtually build the “bricks” which create your body and make it stronger. Which means, you have to fuel your body’s cells appropriately for all the hard work they are doing!
It all starts around the Thanksgiving time and, well, does not end until a few days after the New Year. Season parties, sometimes two a night, all the frenzy of gift-buying, sending the cards – be it by the snail mail or in their electronic version – while trying to manage our usual daily lives and duties… Our days have not enough of hours, our nutrition slacks and the first thing to “go” and not happen is your daily visit to the gym or your daily walk.A recipe for physical and mental disaster.

One of the most important points to consider when you are preparing for your ride is making sure that you have the right fuel for your journey.

I was today at the natural store checking out my items and the cash register girl commented on the amount of various berries I buy and how much they must be costing me.Surely, berries are not the necessity and our survival is definitely not based on them. However, they are so nutritious and healthy that I have been buying really lots of them year after year. If they are truly not in season, then, worst to worst, I get them frozen. I do spend lots of monies on them, but I think they are really worth it, as they contribute to the health of my whole family big time.

Life lessons I learn from my 2 year old and the positive Influences we can have on them We are living in an era where youth obesity seems to be steadily increasing as are the number of activities which involve staying at home and using some type of technological device.

Motivation comes from all types of different places and is extremely important when beginning your fitness journey. Some people are searching to improve their health while others could be exercising to look better. You truly need to find something that will help motivate you each day to get out of bed and get a solid training session in.
Hi All! J I kept being asked what I am eating for the breakfast. I am being asked about all the meals, but, somehow, the breakfast attracts the most interest. Perhaps because I always say that this is the most important meal of the day, which fills us up and keeps things churning as we go with our daily activities!
