Beer Belly or Buff Body...Your Choice

I just got back from visiting a sick friend in the hospital. Sickness - death is a part of our lives. Being surrounded by it in a hospital is the most depressing place to be - at least that is how I feel. I wish there was never such a thing as death. I wish everyone I knew could see the importance of a good fitness routine and good nutrition. I want my friends and family to be with me forever!!

To keep a sound body and mind I try each day to work on myself. I would choose a buff body over a beer belly any day! A healthy body means a healthy mind - unless you were born with a preexisting condition or something happened to you that was out of your control I feel there is no reason to not get busy on becoming a healthier you...that means when you are done reading this get up and do 25 jumping jacks!

For me being active with a daily fitness routine makes me feel better. It does take time and dedication on my part. When I feel better I seem to accomplish more for my family, friends and business. It just feels so good to sweat!

I am going to help out my readers and list a few websites to help get you started on the road to treating your body right! I have listed a few sites that are updated on a regular basis.

I'm sorry that your experiences thus far with hospitals have been negative. Having worked in a hospital and/or being involved in the medical field for 24 years, my own personal experience has typically been that the hospital is the place where sick people come in, and healthier people go out. Of course, there's always the exception; but believe it or not, we really DO release more people alive than dead! =)

That said though, I agree with your frame of mind about people taking good care of themselves overall. Many risk factors for serious health problems can be dramatically reduced if people would only choose healthier lifestyles.

Very nice post!

Another good site to check out is:

www.calorieking.com

You can type in the name of any food or restaurant and it will tell you the number of calories in a particular food item.

It will also tell you how much exercise you'll need in order to burn off those calories.
