Inspiration of the Day
"Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does." - William Jones
Bite of the Day
I do not like green eggs and ham.
I do not like them Sam I am.
I do not like them - like the gym:
They will not, cannot make me slim.
But eggs and a green veg you say?
Well those I guess I'll try today...?!
If you know Peter Sheldrick from the Adelaide Club, you know he makes, eats, and LOVES really good food. Especially breakfast! Today's recipe is one of his absolute favourites!

Stretch of the Day
Fascial Stretch for the Calves:
Establish the position above. Maintain a strong stretch through the calf muscle of the back leg. Keep the front knee close to the wall (i.e. don't allow it to start to move back as you begin to move the hips). Keeping the back heel well-grounded start to shift the hips side to side, keeping the abs braced and spine in a neutral position. Repeat at least 5 times to each side.
Repeat but this time dorsi flex the foot against the wall. Keep the heel of this front foot well grounded. Torso tall, and lean in towards the wall as you move the hips back and forth. From this position, the hips will likely "curve" towards the wall on each side. Repeat at least 5 times each side.

Recovery of the Day
Right? Not because it lowers blood pressure, reduces stress hormones, increases circulation, and makes us more resistant to infection. Well, okay...maybe because of those things. But mostly because it FEELS so good! And it's contagious. In a good way. (Ha. Made you laugh?)
