Nothing in Excess

As most of you who read this know, I read health journals, magazines, and watch a variety of television shows on health and fitness daily. It seems recently I have stumbled on a topic everyone is talking/writing about. The topic of excess.

You can relate this topic to anything and everything, and there are consequences. Anything in excess will harm you. If you train to much, to long, for to hard you will tire your muscles and most likely injure yourself. If you sleep in excess (typically 9 or more hours a night) you will feel sluggish and overly tired. If you eat in excess you will gain weight. This is just to name a few.

Take a look at your life, your day, and make sure you are not in excess. Life is all about balance.

Thank you for reading and no matter what shape and size you are, always love yourself!!!


For those of you who love ice cream and can't seem to give it up, here is an example of how you can still have your ice cream but Not in excess, and no more than once a week: 1 single serving container of Ben & Jerry's Mint Chocolate Cookie ice cream topped with 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries. This is only 253 calories.
