Fit more fun into your fitness while exploring the outdoors.

The first Monday

In case you’re wondering why I’m here, I’m attempting to provide an environment in which folks may be entertained, educated and inspired (yes, at some point I intend to get rich off this). My approach is simple and to the point. My topics are well researched, however I will not be listing a bunch of long-winded study information. It’s my hope that I will inspire my readers to look further into the issues that interest them on their own. So, you might say that I will be “teasing” you with information and ideas hoping that you will be sparked to into bettering your lives.

With that, today I offer a few bits of information that perhaps are new to you.

  • Light soy sauce contains 600 milligrams of sodium?  That’s insane! A healthy adult should consume no more than 2,300 mg in one day. Tip from my friend Skinny Scott, put your soy sauce in a spray bottle and spray it on your food.  That way the flavor stays on the surface and doesn’t get absorbed into your food like a sponge (and you don’t puff up like a blow fish and die of heart disease).
  • Cherries. Who doesn’t love cherries? Cherries have been shown to reduce inflammation and may help with arthritis pain. Drink a glass of unsweetened cherry juice or eat a few fresh or dried cherries everyday.  Unsweetened juices can be a bit tart, so if it’s too much for you I suggest cutting it with water. Try, ¾’s water, ¼ juice.  Same goes for Cranberry juice, which helps the body to eliminate excess fluid.

Don’t forget to move today.  If you’re stuck at your desk, make an effort to get up every hour and walk around. Circle your ankles and wrists 10 times each way, do 3 side bends each direction and gently stretch your neck, front, back and side-to-side. Do this every hour if you can.  Remember, every time you move you’re burning calories and helping your body function.

I’ll be back tomorrow with more and soon illustrations and photo’s to help illustrate all sorts of things. Also, feel free to comment on my posts.  Your comments won’t show up on the blog unless I approve them so say what you like.

Enjoy your first Monday of the year.
