Getting in Shape is Easy!
Now that the holidays are over, people have their resolutions in mind just like last year. One of them is getting in better shape. The want to lose weight, get stronger, improve flexibility, etc. Think about this folks. If you don't feel in shape, ask yourself "How did I get out of shape?" and "What did I do or not do to contribute to this?" Being in shape is not as difficult as you think. We have no problem eating when we're hungry. When you are dirty, you wash. When you get up in the morning, you brush your teeth. These are things you do without thinking about it. Exercise should be part of your day. We drive everywhere (there's no walking). People eat out more (it's convenient) than they used to. When you eat at a restaurant, you tend to eat more (appetizer, entree, drinks, and desert) and the portions too much. Now there's nothing wrong with getting your eat on. The problem comes when you don't burn off those calories. People are always wondering what happen to the condition they had when they were younger. They become more sedentary and less active as they get older. You have to use it or lose it. You can't let a car sit for to long without charging the battery. It is my belief that you have to treat yourself like you're young to feel young. Find the balance between food and exercise. You are your own nutritionist because you know what foods make you feel a certain way and how your body reacts to those foods. So, with all of this being said, there are know excuses to poor health. For the most part, people do it to themselves. It's up to you to get yourself in shape.
