2011: A New Year, A New You, A Fit You!


{What I am about to write does not apply to those with an underlying medical or hormonal condition. I advise anyone embarking on a weight loss and fitness plan to have a thorough medical evaluation. You want to be sure that you are physically able to exercise and you don’t have any underlying medical conditions.}

The old year is just about over.   The year-end retrospectives are all over the place. From blogs, to radio, to newspapers, to newscasts all are talking about the year that was.

My attitude is don’t look back:

2010 is gone!

Was it a bad year?

Was it a good year?

WHO CARES — IT’S OVER!

When it comes to your health and fitness, look only ahead.  Come up with a plan, set your sights on a new you and then go about making it happen.

Arm yourself with the most up-to-date information. I suggest the following blogs:

Livin La Vida Low Carb

My Low Carb Journey

Carbohydrates Can Kill

the following books:

Good Calories, Bad Calories: Fats, Carbs, and the Controversial Science of Diet and Health

Fat Then Fit Now; A life beyond weight loss

Going Against the Grain: How Reducing and Avoiding Grains Can Revitalize Your Health

and the following organizations:

The Metabolism Society

The Weston A. Price Foundation

Take charge; no more excuses, no more blaming others and no more living an unhealthy lifestyle.  Take control of the only person you actually have any control over, the person that stares back at you in the mirror.

You can control what you eat!

You can control your level of fitness!

You can control how much you exercise!

You will make the 2011 version of you healthier.

I am not one for New Year’s resolutions. The old expression; resolutions are made to be broken usually rings true.  So, instead of mindless and pointless resolutions, I set goals.  One year is a manageable span of time and I set goals for the year and intervals throughout.  I write them down and as I accomplish each I mark it off my list.

Is you goal to get fit?

Is your goal to lose weight?

Is your goal to be a physically better you?

If the above are some of your goals, then, set your mind to positive, properly fuel your body, exercise to remodel you physique and have a Happy, Healthy New Year.

Yours in good health and fitness,

Chiropractor, Dr. Joe Leonardi
