Fit vs. Healthy

Have you ever looked up to someone because they are Fit?  Have you ever been envious of a person because of their high level of fitness or their ability to crank out pull ups in their sleep?  Have you looked at a extremely muscular body and just though, wow I wish I was that in shape?  I’m sure most of us can answer yes to any or all of those questions.  However have you ever taken a moment to think about your health?  In fact have you ever considered the difference between being fit and being healthy?  A overly muscular person or a person that can run a marathon at a record setting pace isn’t necessarily a model of good human health.

Coffee, to drink or not to drink?

Growing up I never got in coffee for one main reason:  I was misguided into thinking that it was an unhealthy substance to be polluting your body with.  Sure I tried it here and there to see what all the rage was about, but decided it was not good enough to out weight the “negative” health effects.  (That’s what ice cream and stouts are for).  I’m sure you would be surprised to look in my pantry today,  you would find various coffee beans, grinders, and makers.  What gives you ask?
