Here is your spiritual fitness and nutrition tip! Enjoy, get moving, and create the best you possible!
Fitness: The fitness world can be an overwhelming place to step into. Just like any new addition to your life you’ll want to take some time to educate yourself on what fitness is and how you can best apply it to your life. Reading books about fitness, other people’s journey into fitness, blogs, and even watching you tube videos on fitness can be a great way to get the ball rolling. This is a time you want to really activate your discernment. Trust your intuition when it comes to the things you are reading. The one true axiom in fitness is: “If it is too good to be true, it probably is.” Do not trust quick fixes and promises. Skip over advertisements and read about processes, workouts, and application of techniques. Even reading a few books on anatomy to learn about how the body works can help you understand the process your body goes through when moving into a greater state of health. Often we go running into new things without arming ourselves with the information necessary to be effective in our pursuits. Take a few moments to read and grow. I’ll post some resources in the next few days, so stay tuned!
Nutrition: Sugar. Most of us have a love hate relationship with it. It creeps in to areas of our lives, and in some ways can be addictive. We also need to take caution with the fruits we are eating. Many of us give up cakes and cookies and make a transition to heavy fruits. This is a good thing, but if you are eating too many fruits that are high in sugar you can also create the same overload effect. This is especially important if you have sugar issues like diabetes or high blood sugar. You’ll want to supplement your diet with fruits that are low in sugar. You can check this on the glycemic index. Even healthy foods have limitations as to quantity you want to consume. Having a good mixture of low glycemic foods in the body keeps the insulin levels balanced out, which will also keep you feeling satiated.
