Nutrition Tips

1.            Consistent eating (not skipping meals)
2.            Taking time for yourself
3.            Eating fresh foods (not processed)
4.            Exercise

Get medical clearance before starting any exercise program - "See your doctor first."
Start slow & listen to your body - Do not try to make up for lost time and the idea of "No pain, no gain" is not always the best advice.            

Blend the types of exercise - Aerobic conditioning - core activity - weight training - stretching - and make it something you enjoy
