Women play varied roles with compassion and empathy. They are the breadwinners, housewives, mothers and family heads. But while juggling between so many roles they seldom take care of their health. Their health and fitness takes a back seat while they grinningly obey the orders of their family or boss. Due to this they are the victim of obesity and poor fitness regime.

In the morning most of us are in a jiffy to attend office or school so you can opt for fruit, nut, peanut butter sandwich, milk cornflakes, low fat milk and breakfast smoothie etc to stay rejuvenated.
Stick to your exercise schedule but we flexible- A lot of people suffer from the notion that we exercise only to lose weight but it is not completely true as regular exercise has myriad advantages. Regular exercise helps sharpen focus, enhances self esteem, accelerates productivity, wards off depression or stress, gives ravishing skin, reduces the chances of stroke, aids in digestion etc. You can join yoga classes, dance classes, go for brisk walking or running. But make sure that you don’t skip exercising but be flexible as you can exercise either in the morning or evening depending upon your convenience.
Never focus on reducing the numbers on the scale as you will end up gaining weight. Your central goal should be to stay healthy and to lead a fit life.
