13 months ago I was in Shangahi and was talking with Nigel Green about fitness and health and how that effects all aspect of life .
At the time I had a ” brain of a gladiator but the body of the michelin man ” .
So I decided I was going to change my health and fitness around , so withthe help of Nigel He mentioned a few things .
A1. Monitor .
What you eat and what you do .
It’s very simple the body is a machine what ever you put in is either burned off or stored ,
To monitor my activity I bought Jawbone as this monitors activity and sleep . This I have to say was ettential as I placed a goal of 10,000 steps a day and I made sure I achieved it .
One week ago I reached 4milliom steps a average of 12,000 a day
Strongly reccomend this for anyone looking to getting fit and healthy as it links up the iPhone and advices on ypur diet / activity and sleep what you need to do more of / less of . A feature which I see valuable is the ability to connect with friends and monitor and encourage each other . We might have all the advance technology in the world but deep down peer pressure and group mentalty has such amazing effect .
One key thing I needed to do was to increase my activity . I did this on many forms :
3. Goals –
Without goals we can’t measure how far we gone and how far we need to go . When I started I had a huge goal to achieve so I broke it down to months , weeks , day goals . By knowing my numbers I was able to reach goals . 4 week to go to hit my target 82kg and 15% body fat .
There’s so much information on what worked for me but knowing the figures was key .
I became passionate about food and how it effects the body , mind . The way the body works and how excersie on mind / body .
I be writing more about this as this has become a passion for me now , as the healthy living has become a lifestyle choice for me and I can tell you it was one of best desicion I ever made .
Asian shares took a dip earlier today during a varied day on Wall Street, yet Japan’s better-than-predicted economic growth raised the Nikkei to a 15-year high.
The dollar climbed a two-month high versus the yen after positive US housing data, and as the euro remained stressed by anticipations that the European Central Bank would increase its bond-buying stimulus as well as on new apprehensions about Greece.
Athens will not make a payment to the International Monetary Fund that is due on June 5 if there is no deal with its creditors by then, the government’s parliamentary speaker said.
European shares were seen giving back some of the previous session’s advances, with financial spread betters predicting Britain’s FTSE 100 .FTSE to open around 0.1% lower, and Germany’s DAX .GDAXI and France’s CAC 40 .FCHI were each seen down about 0.4%.
MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS was down about 0.2%.
Yet, the Nikkei stock index .N225 ended up 0.9% at a fresh 15-year peak, catching a tailwind from a weaker yen and after data showed Japan’s economy expanded at a 2.4% annualized rate in the January-March period. That was its fastest pace in a year, exceeding the consensus appraisal for 1.5% growth.
China shares rally to hit four-month high
Thanks to commitment from Beijing to enact serious reforms on its financial market in 2015, Mainland Chinese shares rallied to their highest in four months.
Earlier on Monday, China said that guidelines had been approved which would see a range of reform policies implemented. This includes measures to increase the yuan’s role internationally. As a result, the Shanghai Composite index led Asian gains at the close, registering a rise of 3.2% to 4,417.55. Hong Kong’s benchmark Hang Seng index finished 0.4% higher at 27,693.54.
The guidelines on reforms for the economy include an experimental investment link between the Shenzhen and Hong Kong stock exchanges. It is expected to follow one already established between Shanghai and Hong Kong, according to the Financial Times. That said, there no official statement has yet been made about when the new investment link will come into play.
China’s approved guidelines for economic reform also pointed to changes in taxation, deposit rates and state-owned enterprises.
Tian Weidong, an analyst at Kaiyuan Securities said Beijing’s “policy backdrop” would see investors “emboldened to stay in the market”.
