Therefore when I am not around there is a chance for her to eat the food she used to eat before. This mean if doesn't follow the balance diet that I show her, she will be at risk of having fats into her body because her body is not getting all the nutrients it needs. Also exercising about three times a weeks for 20 minutes can be fit her. Example when I am not around her probably not going to do exercise for 20 minute, she may even do less than 20 minutes. Once the person she has failing to reach their targets, this means she will still be at risks. Example if she used to be slightly over but exercise she is over weights which may even lead her to high risks of disease. Therefore some people believe that everyone has a choice about lifestyle. There can choose to exercise or to be lazy, there can choose to follow a healthy diet or not. All these things it up to the person if she want better life or not. Example Marieanna she work long hours all most everyday, this may not easily for her to have time to do exercise. It is not always necessary to do exercise on the gym. She can do her exercise by walking home after work or when she is coming to college. Other example is Marieanna she might fail to give up smoking because she may have fear that she won't be able to enjoy her life and how to handle on the stress. In order for her to achieve on the plan she to be able to take control on her own stress. Examples she needs to be do this by relaxing, exercise and having a positive attitude toward her. Smoking increases blood pressure and damages blood vessels. Therefore if Marieanna fail to achieve this target she will be back on the danger she was on before. But if she respects this target she will reduce the risk and she will show that she have control on health. ?? ?? ?? ?? Julie Nihonzima ...read more.
