Fitness Friday

You only get one chance at life, so you might as well make the most of it.  In that same regard, you only get one body, so you might as well take care of it the best you can.  If you only had one car to drive for the rest of your life, you'd be sure to take care of it to the best of your ability, right?  No difference with you body.  It's your one vessel in life.  Mike Boyle presents a very good thought process on this idea. 

We are always recommending that our clients cut sugar from their diet as it as unhealthy habit and reeks havoc with the body.  What is quite possibly worse than sugar and doesn't get as much attention is high fructose corn syrup (hfcs).  This equally has a negative affect on the body. 

Now what is great for your body, and has been vilified is FAT!  Contrary to popular belief, fat is indeed healthy for you for so many reasons, among them certain hormone production, and a healthier brain.  However, you must eat the right kinds of fats.  Omega 3 and Omega 6 need to be in balance.  Most often 6 is in a way higher ratio to 3 than what is ideal. 

Lastly, not really fitness related, but some great quotes on kindness.  It was World Kindness Day on November 13th, and it seems people don't always keep this in mind.  My favorite of the page:

"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.” - Plato
In the same regard, you never know what someone is going through, so always give the benefit of the doubt and be kind, not judgmental.  If you'd like a reminder, there's always a bracelet.  I have mine!!
