It’s an excuse uttered far too often: “I’m getting too old to work out.” As we get older, we could experience lower energy, tire more easily, and have less strength and stamina than we did a few decades before. These side effects of aging are all good reasons to start—or continue—working out!
Let’s face it, when you’re feeling exhausted or overwhelmed, it’s easy to want to skip your workout. But during these moments, exercize can be exactly what you need to feel energized and rejuvenated.
They say you are what you eat. When it comes to how you feel mentally and physically, this saying isn’t far from true. When you follow a healthy eating plan and eat foods rich in nutrients, you provide your body--and brain--with the vitamins and minerals it needs to function at its best.

When you’re trying to follow a healthy eating plan, nutrition labels can be your roadmap, helping you decide what you should eat and what to stay away from. But although they give valuable information, the nutritional facts panel can also be confusing and hard to understand.

With all there is to do and eat during the holidays, it’s easy to put your exercise routine and healthy eating plan on hold. Even a small slip up can cause you to throw up your hands until the first of the year. But the farther away you veer from your healthy eating and workout plan, the harder it will be to get back on track, so it’s important to stay the course.

One of the most common excuses women give for not exercising is, “I’m too tired.” But ironically, lack of exercise is one of the biggest contributors to fatigue. Although you may feel a little tired right after your exercise routine, a full body workout is great for boosting energy levels long after you leave the gym. Engaging in a fitness program that includes strength training helps to keep you fit and healthy and will increase your energy levels overall.
