She is amazing and so are you!
Never give up – we can all learn from this fabulous lady.

Health and fitness isn’t all about six packs and biceps… Far from it. It’s more about having the energy and ability to do the things you want to do with a little in reserve.

Use It Or Lose It
The confidence to stay active the use it or lose it rule is so true. The less you move the less you’ll be able to move. Doing exercise seated in a chair can be challenging. Get a resistance band and use it daily. You will be surprised how your body responds, you’ll get stronger, your posture will improve, you’ll have more energy and sleep better too!

SUGARS : Pro-inflammatory Agent: Excessive sugar intake causes tooth decay and has been linked to increased risks of obesity, inflammation and chronic diseases such as metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. Recently, it’s also finally been proven that sugar, as well as dairy, are the causes of acne.

Find them in: Sugar-sweetened beverages like soft drinks, fruit drinks and squashes are some of the major sources of dietary sugars that many have overlooked. Do you know that drinking a can of Coke is the same as sucking ten sugar cubes? Other obvious sugar-loaded foods to avoid or at least limit include pastries, desserts, sweets and snacks. And when you’re looking out for sugar in the ingredients list, note that sugar has many names: corn syrup, dextrose, fructose, golden syrup, maltose, sorghum syrup and sucrose are some of the creative names used.

Inflammation-dousing Substitute: Got a sweet tooth? Opt for natural sweeteners like stevia, honey. Blackstrap molasses to flavour beverages and foods modestly. Natural sugars found in fresh or dried fruits and fruit preserves with no added sugar are also great choices. Not only do they give you the sweetness you crave, fruits also supply you with vitamins, antioxidants and fibres that you won’t find in sugary foods and drinks. Dates, figs, persimmons, kiwis, tangerines and various types of berries are some of the natural healthy snacks you can sink your teeth into.
