Supreme 90 Day
Okay, so I took a recovery day a few days back and sure as always, I find it so hard to get my mojo back! Don't get me wrong, I am still working out, but it was tough getting motivated again. I am just not one of those people who can take a day off...not at this point anyway. Now I know :)
New topic: I read a few articles that pretty much made me say, "no shit". First one is how research now shows that "exercise trumps DNA" and talks about how "doing any amount of exercise is linked to a 40% reduction in genetic risk of being overweight-and people with the most obesity-related DNA sequences saw the biggest benefits from exercise" So, I guess people can't blame it on DNA anymore...oh darn ;)
The other thing I read and found interesting, but also knew to a point, is that not only our meat is lacking in the nutrients it once had, but our fruits and veggies are too! For instance, carrots used to be a good source of Iron, but now there is a 24% decrease in the mineral. Broccoli has a 37% decrease in calcium, and winter squash has a whopping 52% decrease in Riboflavin. these are just a few, but all across the board there are lacking nutrients. The reason? The soil that is being used has been used over and over and over without being able to replenish itself. In the past, crops were rotated and the soil was able to heal/breath. I guess this is just another reason to buy the organic stuff (I'm still not there yet though) or why it is even more important to pop a good quality multi every day :)
Well, that is it for now. Eat Healthy and enjoy your day/week!
