I read an article on Dietriffic today and it was headlining Australia: the World’s Fattest Nation? How can this be you ask well apparently we are overtaking the US spot for number #1 fatties. The article in the link will give you a few tips of what to do to reduce the risk of becoming overweight, and or tackle the issue at hand.
It has become an epidemic, on Today Tonight there are stories of kids being obese and everyone blaming the Parents. The truth is Australia has become a very fast paced country and people work more, have less time for their family life, let alone exercise and eating healthy – which takes preparation time that no one has.
Check out these posts on Exercise, which I am sure, will give you some insight in what you can do to improve your fitness. The other day I went to a class at my Gym (Fernwood) and did the most relaxing and exhilarating class of my life. The class was called Yogilates, which is basically a mixture of Yoga and Pilates. They both promote stretching, getting in touch with your body, breathing and learning to relax so you can release the stress we all carry around every day.
I will write a post on exactly what this class is very soon but in the mean time lets all go for a 30 minute walk, take the dog out for a walk, kick the footy around with the kids at the park, or just make that class at your Gym.
