Some fun fitness facts and a funny cartoon I came across

Did you Know?

* Bodies are creatures of habit. The more you exercise, the more your body learns to burn fat rather than storing it

* The best way to judge whether or not you are exercisinf at too high of an intensity is to see whether or not you can carry on a conversation. If you can't, you may want to back off of the intensity just a little until you can

* If you are always in a bad mood then getting fit just may help. Regular exercise can enhance your mood and overall well-being

* The top three factors that determine whether or not you will stick to your exercise routine include having support, finding a workout plan that you like and knowing what you are doing

* Your recipe for fitness success just may be working out with a friend doing something you love after having recieved formal education on how to do it

* In spite of what you may have read, there is not "best time to exercise." It turns out that the best time to excerise is when it works for you!


  1. Thanks for the tips Liz. It's amazing how quickly your body will react positively to exercise if you can get into a routine.

  2. Great tips! I thought your first point was really interesting and knowing that it's always a good time to exercise makes me feel better about not wanting to get up and exercise first thing in the morning :)

  3. Oooh, you’re such an inspiration. I love this blog!
