"All parts of the body which have a function if used in moderation and exercised in labors in which each is accustomed, become thereby healthy, well developed and age more slowly, but if unused they become liable to disease, defective in growth and age quickly.”


There are lots of options out there for exercise and loosing weight - ultimately it comes down to what you make work for you. I follow for my exercise and have made my own version of diet applying several things that I enjoyed from several different programs. I highly recommend If you're a beginner and that seems out of reach, my next recommendation would be Kristi Approved. Please leave a comment if you have questions!

My Diet

So I'm ready to finally lose the last 10 pounds. I've been following Bodyrock's exercises faithfully since we moved to Chile in December, and I'm mentally in the zone! For my diet, I started last week for new years with this new daily diet for the next 7 weeks to help me reach my goal by our 12th anniversary:

7 a.m. - Fitness cereal with skim milk and a banana

10 a.m. - Peach Cobbler French Toast

1 p.m. - Toast with chicken and cream cheese

4 p.m. - Tuna Salad

7 p.m. - Eggs and Peppers

With this schedule I wake at 7 and eat right away, I exercise between 8 and 9, and I'm in bed by 11 p.m.
