While I am still busy getting my manuscript ready for print, my best friend, a/k/a Brooklyn Fit-Chick, has graced my pages with her presence...Here is her guest blog entry for the new year. For all of you fellow writers (and readers), pay close attention...these tips will help to keep you writing and reading for a long, long time!! I, for one, already practice the Meatless Mondays and it makes a world of difference. (Thanks, BFC!! You are the best!)
I am so pleased to guest blog for The DanteChronicles.
My name is Margo and the name of my Blog is “Brooklyn Fit Chick” (http://brooklynfitchick.typepad.com/brooklyn-fit-chick/ )
I write about health, fitness, and the media plus offer my ideas for workout playlists.
Today I want to talk about the importance for finding time to workout in the winter which I realize is not the funnest topic but we all know that the part of the post-holiday blues includes weight gain. Most people between Thanksgiving and New Year’s put on about one pound to their frame and unfortunately they rarely take it off so the weight gradually creeps up over time. Happy New Year!
One ofthe biggest reasons for weight gain is lack of activity and being seated most of the day. 20 years ago, the thought of sitting in front of a computer for a living would have seemed ludicrous—but today it is the norm. Being seated causes the electrical levels in your muscles to drop leading to muscle loss, fatty deposits in the abdominal area and is said to be a future leading causeof death in this country. (Heart attacks, Type 2 diabetes, etc.)
So how can you start the New Year with a “get healthier” mission? Let me offer my own personal tips (you’re welcome!)
That’s all I have today folks. Please let me know your own tips for staying healthy. I want to hear from you!
Have a wonderful 2012. Let’s all meet our goals this year!
