On countless occasions I have willingly dragged friends and family to the gym and more often than not, I am asked to command the workout -- this could be an abdominal routine, a cardio sequence or to correct a pose. And I've been told that I even take on the role of a trainer...counting the number of reps or telling my companion when they can stop a specific routine. And they actually listen! :-) So, after many years of working out and eating in a healthy manner, I decided it was time to share my views on gyms, classes, my workout routines and ways to maintain a healthy lifestyle. The name Core Recipe came about because I pride myself on my posture. When you have a strong core, the area around your trunk and pelvis, the muscles in your abdomen, hips, pelvis and lower back are able to work in harmony. Not only does your core produce an enviable posture, it stabilizes your body in every type of workout, including day-to-day activities. If you have a weak core, you are more susceptible to poor posture, lower back pain and muscle injuries. Because of all this good stuff, I incorporate core exercises into all my workouts.
I agree wholly with the statement: you are what you eat. The main ingredient to maintaining a healthy body is what you choose to eat and drink. I'm not that strict with my diet, but I do tend to ingest a more healthy range of foods which include fresh vegetables and fruits, but I do feel strongly about keeping all my favorite foods in my diet...in moderation, of course (French fries are my weakness). Because I love to cook and come up my own recipes, I will share with you some of my easy-to-make recipes and juices.
I look forward to sharing my Core Recipe with you. Enjoy!
