Strive for progress, not perfection

Rant and Tip for September 27, 2011

Quote of the day:
 Strive for progress, not perfection. -Unknown

Found this quote to an thought it was an appropriate quote for us today. If you push to hard for perfection it can be daunting. Strive every day for progress and you will get closer and close to your goals and you will become the most perfect you, you can be.

Let’s talk a bit about cardio and aerobic activity. Now keep in mind this in my humble opinion. Not being a huge fan of running I do know it is necessary. If not running some other intense cardio workout. Skipping rope, riding a bike, and even high reps resistance training with little breaks can be an aerobic workout. This type of exercise will really help your heart. Having the right exercise program can be a healthy way to keep in shape, as well as reduce hypertension. A regular exercise routine can get blood flowing. It will take anywhere from a month to a few months to see the actual results on the monitor. Healthy heart exercises can get the heart pumping, as well as reducing the chances of suffering from hypertension. A good exercise program can also keep weight manageable. Aerobic exercise fits into the heart healthy exercise category. It is an energetic exercise that can raise the heart rate. Aerobics can include many types of exercise. It will only help if you are consistent and do not give up. If you find it hard to stick to a routine, which many of us do try mixing it up. When you mix it up you keep it interesting. I find that the best time to do this type of exercise is before breakfast. Since you were fasting since the evening before you will get your metabolism cooking and burn more fat as that is the fuel source you have at that point. Be sure to stay hydrated. Drink a lot of water. Man there is that “W” word again. Didn’t I just rant about that?  Remember our bodies were built for motion. 

Today I will be squatting. I am exhausted now I cannot imaging how they are going to go today. I will make sure to eat properly to fuel myself for the lifts. Start looking as food as fuel for you body and you will notice that it takes on a life of its own. You will want the proper fuel in that body to accomplish your goals.

Have a great workout!

Tip of the day
If you find it hard to stick to a routine, try parking in the furthest space and walk into work or the mall. You can also take the stairs instead of the elevators. Remember that as long as you are getting some type of exercise, you can improve your heart’s condition. Although scheduling it is better after all you schedule everything else in your life.
