New Year's Resolution #4: Get Healthy!

Hi Everyone!

Hope everybody's doing well and looking forward to a dreary February... spent getting healthy?

After my New Year's resolution posts on charity giving, studying, and organization, I am now on my last post for this "series". Ironically, this is the post in which I have decided to cover by far the most popular resolution last.

It may seem a bit strange that going online can help out your health, especially considering the only things that can really improve your health are eating right and excersise, but there are online tools that truly can help you get healthy, including:

BMI calculator (http://kidshealth.org/teen/food_fitness/dieting/bmi.html)- BMI stands for body mass index and can help you determine if you are the right weight for your height and age. It's important when calculating the BMI of a teen to use a calculator made especially for teens who are still growing, like this one.

Gimme 20 (http://www.gimme20.com/fitnesstools)- This site has online fitness tools, including a workout builder and measurement tracker.Goal Setting courtesy of

Justin Sachs (http://www.justinsachsonline.com/Landing_Pages/A_New_You.html)- This is a teleseminar about goal setting, courtesy of Justin Sachs, one of dekoposh's DAPL.

Gyminee (http://www.gyminee.com/)- This site also features a workout builder and can also help you calculate your fitness progress. Nutritional info and a food dairy are available as well. The basic account is free.

Nutrition Data (http://www.nutritiondata.com/)- I love this site! It gives you a complete nutritional analysis of almost every food you can think of and allows you to calculate the nutritional info of your favorite recipes. While these numbers aren't exact (don't obsess), they can help give you an idea of the nutrients in what you're eating.

And last but not least, there is also my website, http://www.aurelieshealthycuisine.com (see http://www.aurelieshealthycuisine.com/articles for healthy eating articles).

Stay tuned for a nice, long, fun-orientated post next week!
