    Is Fitness in Your Future?

    By: Christy V. Temple

    Okay, the opening statement to this blog is obviously somewhat of a loaded question. Generally speaking, if we were all desperately honest with ourselves the answer would probably be a resounding no to the question above. However, it doesn’t have to be. I know for a fact that even small amounts of exercise in brief spurts are better than none at all.

    Now, have I been practicing what I preach lately? Well, please, of course not. Yes, I am going to admit to everyone that I haven’t done much exercising in a long while. Why? Well, at times I just don’t feel like it and in other cases I just can’t seem to get motivated at this time of the year. I think I tend to have the blahs at this time of the year and what I really need is a swift kick in the backside for lack of a better word.

    So, why do I even bring up fitness if I’m not practicing it myself right now? Well, because it is very important to our overall health and well-being. I will also admit to you that I am going to try, starting today, to do better with my overall fitness than I have in the past few months. It won’t be easy and there will still be times that I may fail but I will just get back on my feet and try again.

    The main thing with any of this is that we will all have days where things just aren’t going the way they should in life. We have to learn to always be looking towards the future and not ever fully give up. Life can throw you a curveball but it’s how you respond to the curveball that is the most important. Never, ever, ever give up. There is always hope and hope can take you many places.

    Okay, so now that I have given you my pep-talk for the day let’s look at how the Daviess County Public Library can help you achieve your fitness goals. We have several new health and fitness books in our collection. Here are just a few titles to help you on your road to fitness success:

    • Body fuel : calorie-cycle your way to reduced body fat and greater muscle definition
    • No grain, no pain : a 30-day diet for eliminating the root cause of chronic pain
    • Smart fat : eat more fat. lose more weight. get healthy now
    • Fortify your life : your guide to vitamins, minerals, and more
    • Cure : a journey into the science of mind over body
    • No sweat : how the simple science of motivation can bring you a lifetime of fitness
    • Secrets from the eating lab : the science of weight loss, the myth of willpower, and why you should never diet again
    • Body intelligence : harness your body’s energies for your best life
    • Strong : nine workout programs for women to burn fat, boost metabolism, and build strength for life
    • The Shred power cleanse : eat clean. get lean. burn fat.

    This is just a very small sampling of what we have to offer in the way of fitness/health books at the library. The keyword search on “fitness” alone produces 425 adult non-fiction titles. So if you’re in the market to try and get healthier and fitter in this New year, please drop by the Daviess County Public Library and take a look at what we have to become a lean, mean, fighting machine.
