Here's a little story about Fitness in Feathers
that I learned the hard way.. I hope it can help you always stay
healthy without having to stray from the nest like I did for
a while :>
Waaaay on back in college I took a couple required general
education courses that were so enriching that I would've embarked
on a minor in these studies if I weren't so close to graduation.
These were Sociology and Health/Nutrition.
The eating involves basically getting a good balance of the
basic food groups in correct measure, 2 proteins, 3 dairy, 4
fruit/veggie, and 4 bread/grain servings each day. Also, fruit/veggie
fiber is even more effective than grain fiber for the health
of the intestinal tract :> The aerobic part
of fitness includes stretching to warm up, and then a steady
activity that keeps your heart rate up near max for 30-40 minutes
or so every two or three days (having a day off gives the body
a chance to build on the messages you give it thru exercise).
So after about 4 or 5 years of that, I um... kinda slipped away from it. :/ I kept eating a balanced diet, but I faltered on the aerobics ..right around the time I went into a sedentary job too! :P Also, even though my diet was balanced, I had not been conscious enough of actual content, and recently found out how important it is to stay alert of things like how much SALT is in the list of edibles, and keep enough fluids in daily intake as well. In other words, a balanced dinner that is heavily filled with sodium isn't as healthy as one without.
Soooooo... recently I've had to really concentrate on some
firm goals and commitment to health again and hereafter, and
It seems to be working fairly well! *skreeegle!* :>
