Exercise is important to maintain our body. The more we move, we maintain our muscle mass. Muscles burns more calories than fat. Now we do need some fats, but not excessive.
Some of us are more fine tuned than others and you can see that hour-glass or chiseled look. Some of us are working to get that point and some of us are waiting for that urge to put the body in motion.
As we exercise our body to become physically fit, we also need to exercise our mind to acquire knowledge. Knowledge is power. The more you study and practice in your area of choice, the better you become. In our daily tasks of becoming a better worker, student, teacher, husband or wife. We can find that knowledge needed on in the Bible. Like the book of Proverbs. Proverbs is considered the Book of Wisdom.
Proverbs 25:16 (KJV) Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it. Here we see if we eat too much food, we will vomit. We only eat what we need to sustain us. I know this will be a challenge. We have Christmas and New Years coming up. I love sweets. I have a candy dish at my desk just in case I want something sweet. Will I get rid of my candy dish? Nope! But I will cut back. Right after I finish that bag of candy corn. Just joking! I will only eat a few.
Remember, exercise the body and the mind.
