The scale: my love-hate story
For years on end, I would walk into the pharmacy whenever I went downtown…
See, back when I was a teenager, I didn't have a bathroom scale. I wasn't happy with the way I looked either. I just didn't... feel good in my own body.
Ready, set, go!
We all have different goals in life and these goals may change for the same person overtime.
Physical or mental goals are always present for human beings.
The real task is not thinking what we want. The hard part is getting it done.
I will speak from my knowledge area: health and fitness. But these points I will mention, can be applied to other areas as well.
Simpler grocery shopping
We want to eat better...
We want to buy less processed, healthier ingredients…
We don't want to sacrifice our taste buds to the fitness gods...
BUT... we have no idea where to start!
Cardio or weight training?
We’ve all been there. We want to start exercising and the first thing that comes to mind is YEY (or ney for some!) CARDIO!
Well, let me let you in on a not-so-much-of-a-secret: cardio is great but what form of exercise you choose, depends on your goals and also on your likes!
Both, weight training and cardiovascular exercise bring diverse benefits to our health
So it is important we do both.
Unlearning to re-learn: movement
Most of us will inevitably spend many hours sitting at a desk and using a laptop. Be it because it's part of our job or because we like to chill and play games or watch a movie.
Even as a trainer I get to sit for a bit more than I'd like, but it's a necessary evil to bring you my best.
So, if sitting for so long is difficult to avoid, how can we make sure we are active enough to maintain our general health and avoid those dreadful back pains?
