I want to reach out to those people who have maybe let themselves go a bit. Maybe your diet is not what it should be, maybe you have a few extra kilos that you are carrying that are not serving you well. I want to encourage you to start your journey towards wellness today. If this inspires one person, then I think that’s awesome.
I’m 43 in February. I see a lot of people in this age bracket start to ‘fall apart’. If you are working long hours, eating too much fast food and not prioritising exercise and diet, you may be one of these people. This is only going to lead to health problems and a general decline in your physical well being.
The good news is that the changes are really simple. There is no magic wand or silver bullet solutions. It’s just down to eating the right food, and getting yourself to the gym, or whatever sport it might be that keeps you active and strong. I thing weights is a great option for all people, men and women to keep their bodies in good physical shape.
Here’s what I would suggest: if you are smoking, stub that ciggie out now! Get some help to quit if you need it. Stock your fridge or freezer with fresh and frozen vegetables. Cook at home – make your meals from mostly whole, unprocessed foods (I’m not kidding anyone here, I like a treat or snack and often its junk, but the majority of my diet is good healthy food). Start exercising if you are not doing it now. Plan to do 3 to 4 decent work outs in a week.
If you are interested in learning more, or want my workouts I will send them to you. I am not selling anything! I am just enthusiastic about health and wellness.
