Put your Best Fork Forward

I love this years National Nutrition Month Theme!! Put your best for forward!! We all need that boost of I CAN now and then and when this month rolls around it gives me the does in a big way. So many great messages coming to my in box with many great ideas and reminders on how to live a healthier life.

I feel like we had the longest winter ever here in Idaho and the part we live in normally does not get very much snow. This year we had something like 10 snow days due to the bad weather. Because we normally do not get much our cities were not prepared and it took weeks to get dug out of the big snow as I call it. It’s so nice to see spring coming in and the weather start to change. I am looking forward to starting to getting my exercise outside and enjoying the beauty of spring. Below is a of healthy snacks vs unhealthy snack choices. We all can use a reminder on this.

I love group fitness.

Here are my Top 3 for reason’s that group fitness works!

1.  YOU will be challenged and you will want to push yourself to the next level.

In BodyPump the stronger you get the more weight you want to lift. This class along with others does not take long to see results there for you will want to stick with it because you are seeing results.  Results make us thrive

2. Group fitness is FUN!

You are more likely got stick to something that is fun!!

3. Group fitness helps you stay accountable.

Think about how it feels when your trying to motivate yourself to get to the gym.  Sometimes since your not meeting other people there it’s easier to say oh forget it I will go tomorrow.  With group fitness you are going to see people that care if your there.  Every time I have gone days without going I get a text or 2 saying where were you we missed you.  It really does help with the accountability factor.  I have even had instructors ask me why I haven’t been to class.

******In order to get signed into the drawing for the 25.00 gift card you must leave a comment about why you like group fitness.  If you don’t workout at a group fitness facility write something that would make you want to change from gym to group fitness.

YIPEE my A1C

Other people with diabetes can relate to why I am so happy about this result.  I put in what the A1C test is for those of you that don’t have diabetes.

The A1C test is a blood test that provides information about a person’s average levels of blood glucose, also called blood sugar, over the past 3 months.  A1C test is sometimes called hemoglobin A1c, HbA1c, or glycohemoglobin test.I seriously feel so when I see my A1C results and it looks this great!!  5.3 is AWESOME!!   This number means so much to me because it shows how eating and exercise pays off.  Gives me motivation till my next blood draw!!
