Nutritional Knowledge You Can Use
Working as an exercise coach involves long hours. My day starts when the alarm goes off at 4 am and I’m often not home til about 8 or 8:30 pm. Don’t get me wrong, my day can have some breaks between classes, appointments, squeezing in a workout or run, and administrative work. My office is 15 miles from home so running home is not an efficient use of time to get lunch or dinner. So I like to put something together that is healthy and easy to bring with me for meals.
“Aging” can be a touchy subject around people in my age bracket. The fitter people tend to feel good, motivated, positive, less sensitive to age. Those of us in the 40 – 50+ age range that have not maintained a high level of fitness may look back and think “I wish I stayed fit!”. We often feel it’s too late to become fitter and healthier and think that we are too old to make lifestyle changes or to be more physically active. We shudder at the thought of each birthday because we are “getting older”.
I just completed a 3 mile trail run through the woods at a local park. It was a beautiful morning for a run even though I am not one to enjoy running.
