Well we are off to Sea World today with the boys and their big sis, so we are packing our sandwiches, healthy snacks and water bottles. We are going to resist the temptation of the $12 cheeseburgers, French fries and funnel cakes!! Before we go however I just want to give you a suggestion. If you are seriously interested in making nutrition and fitness part of your life, I recommend subscribing yourself to a few select "nutrition/fitness" websites.
You will be reminded daily, weekly, or monthly (whatever the sites email schedule is) to think about your health and what you can do to improve it.
I am subscribed to quite a few since obviously health is my fascination, but I do strongly recommend limiting your subscriptions to one or two. You don't want to get so bombarded with emails that you quit reading them and immediately delete, delete, delete. That will defeat the whole purpose. If you find one or two that email quick, interesting, current data in a format that you find reader friendly, sign up. There is a ton of good information out there just waiting for you to read and learn.
Some of my favorite sites are the fitDivas (of course), WebMD, Active Nutrition, Arbor Clinical Nutrition, Babyfit and EmpowHer. I also subscribe to Weight Watchers, Hungry Girl, and Losing it with Jillian Michaels just to name a few. They all have good information, some more scientific than others, with interesting tips that you can apply to your life. No matter who you are, you can always learn something new.
Be careful that you aren't subscribing to sites that just promote their stuff they are selling. Prevention is bad at that as well as Men's Health. Don't get me wrong, they have great info but many times they tempt you with exciting subject headings and then you open it up and it is like "Find out by buying these three books!" Watch that and don't get suckered in to all of the free trials unless you are going to actually read the books or send them back if you don't like them. It will end up costing you some dough!!
Anyway, do your research, find one or two good ones and get reading. It is amazing how much you could learn!!
