The best way to ensure that you and your family are eating a healthy diet is to prepare your own food and eat at home. This can seem a daunting task when thinking about the prep work involved in home cooked meals.
Many years ago when I first started running on a regular basis I developed hip and knee pain. I took on too many miles at once with a faster pace than I was conditioned for and ended each run hobbling home.
I live in a city and teach outdoor fitness classes and so I generally get plenty of outside time, but it is not quite the same as time spent outside exercising in nature. And while I love the vibrancy of the city and the outdoor playground it offers, I need to escape from it at least once a week to refuel my soul.
Have you ever noticed that the harder you try to lose weight, the more reluctant it seems to be to come off? And that once the weight does come off, it generally comes back with some extra pounds to boot? There is a good reason for this: Dieting turns off your natural ability to monitor your true hunger.
