In the last blog we talked about getting started on exercise and what to do.  We focused on walking because that is probably the easiest for most people.  Well, there are so many other things that you can do; swimming, jogging, biking, running, mowing the yard,  Zumba,  basketball, dancing, racquetball, hiking, rollerblading,  yoga,  aerobics classes, tennis.

Turning it up a notch

 

In the last blog we talked about getting started on exercise and what to do.  We focused on walking because that is probably the easiest for most people.  Well, there are so many other things that you can do; swimming, jogging, biking, running, mowing the yard,  Zumba,  basketball, dancing, racquetball, hiking, rollerblading,  yoga,  aerobics classes, tennis. 

 

The list could go on for ever.  Activities that incorporate a lot of muscles is the key.  To achieve weight loss you have to burn calories and to burn calories you have to MOVE!  Although the Surgeon General recommends 150 minutes a week more is better.  For you that can do more than do it!  Make the commitment to 5 days a week of 45 -60 minutes of exercise.  Once again if you would like to do more, ease your way into it.  And don’t push it too hard.  For right now just ease yourself into it and have fun with it.
