Hip to be Fit

Well, it’s good try. Remember the old saying, “the faster I go, the behinder I get?”

It’s kinda like that with fitness. At least if feels that way sometimes. Of course, we have things like age and evolution working against us…our bodies are perfectly evolved to help us store fat, ensuring the species’ continuation in times of famine.

If you’re a woman, you’re programmed to add a pound a year every year after 35. How do you like those odds?

Suckage if you ask me. What do I care about survival odds after I’m gone? But hey, no one consulted me.

What’s a girl to do?

Keep up the good fight! Get your heartrate up, get moving, even just a little. Take a walk after dinner. Little things like this will add up. And they help manage all the stress life doles out on a daily basis.

Eating well doesn’t have to add weight if you eat wisely. But that’s the subject of another blog…

Here’s a tiny deposit in the get fit bank: the FitBit. Drop this cool little gadget in your pocket and monitor your activity level for the day. Like a better looking pedometer, it measures motion and for you and downloads the data wirelessly. From there, you can input calories consumed that day and calculate your fitness.

Or, you could just DO more and EAT less. That costs nothing.
