Slackin' but not for long!

Wow, July 31st and the first time I'm touching this blog for a month; heh, alas -- been a bit busy with my other half's events lately. But I'm still holding steadfast to regularly exercising (though at a somewhat reduced frequency of 4-5 days/week instead of usual 6-7) and eating healthfully whenever possible (i.e. not going out with a bunch of foodbloggers!)

Anyways, hope to get back into fitblogging groove soon but in the meantime, here's some great reads as motivation to keep on moving!

- Mayo Clinic's 7 benefits of regular exercise - from better sleep to mood enhancement and even putting in that extra spark under the sheets.

- LA Times goes even more specific, citing studies and experts on exercise and its effect in preventing (or reducing severity) of various chronic conditions, from cardiovascular disease to diabetes and even mental sharpness.

See? It's not just about looking good (though that's a great perk too), you'll feel and live better too!
