Take a step back!

A week or so ago we discussed the importance of nutrition over fitness.

I want to explain the point of that message one more time.....both are key components to a healthy happy life but diet is a controllable when you are injured or as the back or knees go bad.

Fitness is something we can do as long as the Lord allows and if we are hit with a procedure that limits us or if we are sick diet is the ultimate constant.

I was speaking to my dad yesterday and he had quadruple by pass about ten years ago.  He had been very good with diet for a few years but he fell off the wagon.  At the ripe old age of 70 he is riding a bike 45 minutes a day three days a week and he is starting to feel better but he doesn't know how long he will be able to do it.

I explained that if he would lay off the Mac and Cheese and all the other junk he would not need to worry about the bike he just needs to mix in some amount of cardio at the age of 70 will help a recovering heart patient if they don't watch theri food intake.

Just a quick thought!

Exercise daily does not entitle you to eat whatever you want but eating healthy will entitle you to rest and relaxation for a long time!
