I am reprinting this from last Easter. It still seems appropriate.

The idea of achieving and maintaining good health in this blog really is just an exercise (no pun intended) in restoring ourselves on a daily basis, isn’t it? We wake up in the morning and our body says to us, metaphorically, what have you done for me lately? It’s nice that you ate well and got some exercise yesterday, but this is a new day. So, get to it.
