I'm in full-fledged Olympics mode, and I was happy to see Michelle Kwan's name pop up in the news today. The former figure skater and Olympian (she won medals in the 1998 and 2002 Winter Games) is involved with GE's Healthymagination program, and she spoke about diet and exercise with U.S News & World Report today. Among her tips:
*Do what you enjoy. Yes, Kwan still skates a few times a week. Now, she says, it's a "treat." Think of how your attitude towards exercise would change if you looked forward to workouts as a pleasurable experience. A dance class, dip in the pool, walk in the park with your dog: Whatever it is, if you have fun doing it, you're more likely to keep it up.
