April 13th

Nutrition: Everyone needs it and your body will love you if you eat the right things to fuel it and keep it healthy. Vitamins are very important too and there has been lots of talk lately about Vitamin D & D3. It's true, Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin that's essential for many body functions, including normal bone growth & development.In addition to it's well known role in calcium absorbtion, vitamin D may support many area of health including Cardiovascular,cognitive, neurological, blood sugar, breast, colon, thyroid, joints and more. That's why it is so important for kids to consume the daily values in the range of 200 iu to 400 iu is recommended. We all know that we can get a good amount of vitamin D from the sun which the skin absorbs but in the winter months the sun isn't as strong here in the North East and we must take a supplement. so get outdoors as much as you can and take your supplements and think of Nutrition as a good thing because it is in so many ways. Until next time.............. Namaste.

Ellen's Fitness blog

Helo Everyone, today wasnt a good day here in Monmouth County NJ to get outside and exercise so the gym is the next best alternative. There are plenty of gyms here in this large county so wherever your location is, use your gym to your fullest advantage get your moneys worth. I use to manage an all womans gym and no matter what they say, they make lots of money, no matter what. Today was an upper body and cardio day. Did an awesome upper body workout with lots of back and arm and then right to Cardio, have to do the cardio, which is so much fun, some of my fav's are jump rope, jump lunges and aerobic step into kicks. The key is to keep changing it up so you dont get bored. Exercise and eating right is the key to a long healthy life. Until next time ....... As Nike say "Just do It".
