Common Sense

Posted in Exercise, Fitness, Food, General, Health, Nutrition

Common sense is your friend!  When it comes to health and fitness remembering basic fundamentals and applying them is most important.  For instance when I was a kid eating was all about the four basic food groups.  Now there is the pyramid from the RDA and a lot of other information about what is good and bad, it can be confusing. But if you stick with BALANCE and stay as close to the origin of a food you will do fine.  Moderation and regularity are two important common sense rules.  Soda, ice cream and pizza all in one day should not be considered moderation!

Using the same common sense rule for exercise.  Don’t over complicate the plan.  Make time, find time,  do something.  Do something you enjoy.  Gardening counts, dancing counts, washing the car and house chores all use energy.  Try not to sit for more than an hour without getting up and stretching walking around.   Some other things are necessary for optimal results, but remember anything is always better than nothing!

Though I attend several of her classes, where Darla truly shines is as a personal trainer and
health coach. She saw where I was, and helped me to get where I wanted to be, even though I
wasn’t sure I was communicating it clearly. After just a year my Dr. was amazed to report my
bone density had improved, and my overall health was enhanced. Darla keeps training fresh,
challenging, and enjoyable; and she is always supportive and encouraging. During this time of
sheltering I have been continuing my training sessions via Skype, and her eagle eye doesn’t
miss a thing…still correcting my form and pushing me to go beyond where I thought I could go.
Thank you doesn’t seem nearly enough for someone who got me back on a positive health track
that has enriched body, mind and spirit. But thank you anyway, Darla.
