Homework WOD: Rest Day.

We’ve observed that every quantifiable measure of health that typically declines with age is improved by exercise. Furthermore, these measures can be placed on a continuum that ranges from sickness to wellness to fitness. From this view fitness is seen to be a hedge against sickness. Blood pressure, body fat, bone density, triglycerides, “good” and “bad” cholesterol, flexibility, and muscle mass each follow this pattern. Done right, fitness provides a nice margin of protection against the ravages of time and disease. Fitness is and should be “super-wellness.”

Quote of the Day:
“However mean your life is, meet it and live it; do not shun it and call it hard names. It is not bad… it looks poorest when you are richest. The fault-finder will find faults, even in paradise. Love your life, poor or grand as it may be….its the only chance you get.”

Quote of the Day:

“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve. Thoughts are things! And powerful things at that, when mixed with definiteness of purpose, and burning desire, can be translated into riches.”
