Do you want these?

Since most people use the holidays as an excuse to not exercise, I’m here to remind you of two incredible benefits that exercise gives you.

Even in December. Especially in December!

Benefit #1: Better Health

People who exercise regularly are healthier and live longer.

Not only does exercise help you achieve and maintain a healthy weight, it also helps lower bad cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure, while improving the amount of good cholesterol in your body. Additionally, exercise strengthens your bones and muscles, lowers your risk of cancer, decreases stress, helps you battle depression, and even improves your sex life.

Benefit #2: Confidence

People who exercise regularly are more confident and live happier.

It’s important to be confident in who you are, no matter your size or shape. But make no mistake about it – regular exercise WILL boost your confidence and you WILL feel happier. This is from the magical combination of feel-good hormones that come from the physical and mental accomplishment of a great workout.

So, if you would like to be healthier and more confident and if you’d like to live longer and happier then get moving! Exercise even though it’s the holiday season. Exercise so that you’ll live to enjoy more holiday seasons to come!

Trust Issues

Never, ever trust the claims on the front of a food package. Claims like: heart healthy, whole grains, or fiber-filled are often smoke and mirrors to prevent you from reading the actual ingredient list.

The real truth about a packaged food item is hidden in the ingredient list on the BACK label, not in the bold claims on the front.

Scan that ingredient list for high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, sugar, hydrogenated or partially-hydrogenated oils – if the food contains these items then put it back and choose something healthier.

Spiced Tilapia

Here’s a delicious way to serve up white fish – with lots of spice and a sprinkle of pretty garnish!

I love all of the flavor in this ultra-healthy dish. White fish can be bland or even unpleasant tasting if not properly dressed, but you won’t have to worry about flavor with this incredible spice blend. Serve over quinoa, rice or cauliflower rice for a tasty, satisfying, fitness dinner!
