Did You Know?


Fitness Facts
In the spirit of Friday, here are some fun fitness facts I’d like to share with all my wonderful readers. They are all pretty amazing, and some really surprised me. Glad I know about them now πŸ™‚

1). You would need to drink a quart of milk everyday for 3 to 4 months to drink as much blood as your heart pumps in one hour! WOW!

2). Muscle is three times more efficient at burning calories than fat – Go get some biceps curls in!

3). The human body has more than 650 muscles – Now that’s pretty amazing! Are you taking good care of them?

4). Your heart is the strongest muscle of your body and beats about 100,000 times in a day, in an average adult – Cardio-vascular exercises are imperative for a healthy heart! Now get down and give me some push-ups!

5). If you are 25lbs overweight, you have nearly 5000 extra miles of blood vessels through which your heart must pump blood – Do your heart a favor – go easy on it, and lead a healthy life πŸ™‚

Stay healthy, stay happy! πŸ™‚

About pallavisharma

Welcome to my blog! Apart from being a health and fitness freak, I love writing, and this blog is a perfect outlet for it. I am not a professional writer by any means, but would like to be someday, so I can inspire people far and wide. I am a project manager by day, and go to business school at night. I am happily married to the love of my life, and thoroughly enjoy being a stepmom to two of the most wonderful kids I know. The goal of my blog is just one word – INSPIRE. If I was able to help even one person enough to get them to change their life around for the better, I would consider myself extremely fortunate. I am super thankful to all my readers who have given me so much love and encouragement through the years. You guys rock! I will leave you with one quote – β€œMonotony is the awful reward of the careful. If you want to change and grow, you need to take risk” – John C. Maxwell
