Fit: 2 Quotes

One of these was clearly intended to motivate you to eat right. The other simply applies to life.

"Eat like a lady not a pig ."

Kinda blunt but real easy to understand. I'd like to edit it a bit and make it:

"Eat like a fit lady, not a fat pig."

Alright, I like that much better as I believe this quote came from the times when ladies were told to "eat like birds" AKA nothing. To be fit, you need to EAT. Your body needs fuel, period end of statement. Eating the right fuel will help you reach your fitness goals, whether they are weight loss, weight gain (yeah believe it or not there are actually people out there TRYING to gain weight *sigh* wish I had that problem), strength or something else.
But don't take my word for it... check out this link from the American Council on Exercise

"You get what you settle for" , Susan Sarandon, Thelma and Louise

I like this for two reasons.

1) It's about persistence. Whatever endeavor you are currently undertaking, if you count yourself in this moment at point 0 and the ultimate finish point is point 100, as you go along you'll find a place that is comfortable for you. If you stop there, if you settle there, that's what you get.

It's not negative or positive it's just where you stopped, where you settled. An example of this is in your career where you may decided that taking on new responsibility, conflicts with your family time so you settle for a certain position in order to maintain/gain family time. Which brings me to the second reason:

2) It's about your ability to control where you are at. It's up to you where you settle, why you settle and if you settle. In the above example at any point in time a person can again focus on their career and try to move forward. They can stop settling in any aspect. Sure it's at the cost of something else, but such is life.

We'll see if by following the plan I mentioned previously and remembering to eat like a FIT LADY I make it 19% Body Fat and settle there or not.
