Aerial Silks – Healthy Eating.

Move in the picture – I’m thinking this move is some form of meathook knot. I say this because the body is to the side like a meathook would be. However, I say knot because my body was in that silk like a knot in the middle of a ribbon. I now know what it feels like to be hair. To get into this move, invert, and hook on with the insider leg. Use the top hand to bring the silks under you, around your back. To keep yourself secure cross your free leg over the hooked knee. Wrap the silks over the belly, and hold it tight sort of out and behind with the other hand. Keep tight hold, while you reach opposite hand to opposite leg and split the free leg back. Then bring that free leg over to the same side as the leg that is being held.


There is one set group of people that like to say this to me… and as much as I understand that what they say may be right… It still annoys me…

Nothing is healthy for you really… blah blah blah…

Well… yeah, okay nothing is healthy for you in the long run. It is like using a car, you can look after that car as much as it possible needs, clean it, check the engine, regular service checks, etc. However, using the car will run it down eventually. You can slow down the wear and tear, but it will still gradually become damaged in the end. Our bodies are no different. We have to use them, and we could eat the healthiest, drink the healthiest, keep our body in shape. It will still eventually break down.

The importance about eating healthier is slowing down the deteriorating process so we last longer. In the day, in the weeks, months, or years. So, stop using that as an excuse to not try and be healthier with yourself. Your body will thank you, in the end for looking after it more than it would if you don’t.

I’m not the biggest, or greatest dietitian in the world, so I couldn’t advice specifically what is good for you but here are some things to think about.

Don’t be afraid to snack on fruit… – yeah ok they have sugar in them but it is natural sugar – Fructose – which takes longer to breakdown which means longer lasting energy throughout the day.

However, eat more vegetables than fruit… – it is still a good idea to keep the sugar intake at a bit of a low level – vegetables are better than fruit – so have more of them, fruits as snacks, vegetables in meals.

It is also better for your body to eat little and often – we are actually meant to graze throughout the day. Not eat large meals at set times.

I don’t know if any of this would help, but good luck!
