Just the beginning

With the end of my 30 day challenge coming to an end, it marks the first month of continuous life long goal of staying active. The immersion experience awakened me in what the true benefits that are felt personally with heightened fitness levels. With positive self attitude a feeling of accomplishment can take you as far as your dreams reach. Do what you enjoy and live life with no regrets tackling your dreams.

Healthy Snacks

When lunch is over and dinner is still hours away how do you chose the right snack for you? First identify healthy foods you like such as fruit, nuts, granola, or other low fat natural foods. Then determine what you have handy or what sounds the best. If more than one sound good than try a combination such as a fruit smoothie or even a yogurt parfait. So next time you go to grab a bag of chips rethink and try a new healthier option.

It's a Beautiful Day at BSU!!

With the breezy, mild weather today was a great day to go for a run around the campus of Ball State. Many other people were taking advantage of the mild weather too. Students practicing sports from football to color guard demonstrate great ways to add a little more exercise into daily life of college students.

Healthy Lunch

After getting a great nights sleep, I woke up hungry in search for food. With healthier food choices on my mind, the salad bar so happened to catch my eye. My choice of toppings today were cheese, croutons, ham, turkey, and onions with low-fat Caesar dressing. Not a fan of salad? There are plenty of other healthy lunch options such as wraps, vegetable soup, or other well rounded nutritious foods. So I encourage you to go out, make healthy food choices, and stay active!

What is your favorite healthy lunch meal?

Yucky Weather

With rainy yucky weather sweeping across Indiana it may seem like the perfect movie night. Although a movie may be tempting try using it as a reward for after working out inside. Inside work out facilities are great but not typically free so I encourage u to get creative and compose ur own work out in ur home. If you find creating ur own indoor work out try finding free videos online or even check ur local library to check out a free instructional work out routine DVD.

What activities do u like to participate in?

While today my body decided to turn against me I had a full list of things to still do. That included another day of working out. The workout consisted of bench, decline bench, abs, push ups, and i could handle no more. Its important to listen to your body to return back to good health faster taking the work out easier or even the day off would be the best idea.
