Get Fit

This is going to be a fitness blog. 'Fitness' is an area that interests me. Always has. But I have not always had the initiative to get in shape.

I have spurts of enthusiasm leading to temporary correction of my eating habits & exercise schedule (or the lack of it) before like takes over. Of late, though, I have realized that it is practically impossible to attain fitness unless we make it a way of life. If we see gymming or dieting as a chore, chances are we will not be able to stick to it for long.

Therefore, it is better to make lifestyle corrections – such as incorporating physical activity into our lives (for instance walking short distances whenever possible, taking the stairs instead of the elevator if we need to climb only a few floors etc.) & becoming conscious of our eating habits (such as consciously lowering the consumption of junk food, making sure we eat our dinner at least a couple of hours before going to bed etc.). These are minor changes but when made a way of life I believe they will be sustainable in the long run & will go a long way in helping us get fit.

I so wish I was a Health & Nutrition expert! I would have written a book on fitness. But given that I’m not, I’ll do the next best thing! I shall compile fitness & nutrition trivia I read on the web or in books/magazines, or hear about from experts (such as gym instructors, doctors etc.) & publish them on this blog.

I'll be doing this mainly out of interest & for my own entertainment. If you are interested in Fitness, you are most welcome to read this blog. But please please do NOT follow anything that's written here unless you have checked with an expert....because I am NOT one!

Lol...So happy reading!! :)
