The sad reality of most of our lives is that we sit, all day, at our desks, working away, and essentially letting our bodies slowly melt into a puddle in our office chairs. I'm sure you've heard it before that working at your desk all day could be killing you, and an estimated of 75-80% of Americans suffer from lower back pain due to our sitting-saturated lives. Prolonged sitting can also be linked to higher risk of heart disease, diabetes, obesity, cancer, and depression, as well as muscle and joint problems. Some studies even say that this epidemic can be more dangerous to your health than smoking.
Hey everyone, and welcome! This is a new part of my blog that I have finally found time to work on, how exciting! You can expect loads of fitness related videos to be posted on here, and linked to my FoodbyMaria YouTube Channel.  Fitness is a huge part of my life, I do not go a day without hitting the gym, or being active. So before I go I will leave you with my fitness philosophy... and why I believe we should all try out best to be active, be well, and eat better!
