Fitness Through Running with Proper Nutrition

Who has time to get a workout in? Depending on what you’re doing or have planned for the day, it may get put off until later.

And if it gets put off, it may never happen. So, it’s a good idea if you can, to make your workout one of the first things you do each day.

Here’s a little video I made, which for me, is a supplement to my regular workouts. This is done indoors and only takes a couple minutes to do.

And who doesn’t have just a couple of extra minutes to spend on themselves? Make this a part of your regular routine and it becomes easier to do!

Most people think that in order to lose weight, you need to burn more calories than you take in. But that’s not how it works.

Most weight loss occurs when the range between calories taken in and calories burned is between 300 to 500. In other words, if you’re consuming 2,000 calories per day and burning 1,800, you’ll still lose weight, as long as you’re somewhere within this range.

When you try to starve yourself, or take in fewer calories than you’re used to, the body reacts and goes into storage mode. It stores all the fat it can and continues to if you keep starving yourself.

When you keep your body’s metabolism high by giving it enough fuel, it burns more calories. Get some free information on metabolism by signing up for my mailing list on the right sidebar of this blog!

Tonight I went for a run just after it got dark out. My original intention was to hit the road while it was still light out. But, I waited a bit too long.

At least, I got the workout in on what I call the shortest day of the year. Since we spring forward tonight, and for the most part, set the clocks before we go to bed, it’s a short day by an hour.

Tomorrow, if I run at this same time of night, it’ll be light out still. Ahh, signs of spring in the air as we approach better weather and longer days! Before long, I can stop wearing gloves, a hat, and a long sleeve top!
