Make sure you get your exercise 5 days a week if possible.
I had such a great week. I feel so blessed to have been asked to speak able to about type 2 diabetes in so many different settings. I wanted to sit down today and write a article that has been on my mind this past week and that is about getting the exercise we need. So here it goes!!
It also improves the quality of life as well. I have seen allot as my husband works in a nursing home as a physical therapist and is the re-hab director. Far too many times he will get someone on the young side of life that did not take care of their body when they were young and they will die. It breaks my heart when this happens. Many time’s if people only got more exercise through out there life they would not have developed so many health problems.
I am a perfect example of what not taking care of yourself can do. Now being on the other side my goal is to help others and teach the importance of being good to yourself starting with the way you eat and exercising regularly.
- It decreases body fat and increases lean muscle
- It helps burn calories and aids in weight loss and weight control
- Increases strength of muscles and bones
- Reduces anxiety, depression and improves mood
- Creates more energy
- improves well-being through enhanced self -esteem
- Improves sleep patterns
There are many more benefits but just know if you start today you can start enjoying the pay off and that is a longer life and better health.
The benefits of having a pedometer are great! Using the health experts recommended 10,000 steps a day is a great way to monitor your exercise. Ever since being on the Dr. OZ show I have been using the pedometer they gave me. I love it! It’s is a reasonably priced pedometer and reads well.
Getting 10,000 steps a day is not as easy as you think! You really have to be moving most of the day. I work out a min of 1 hour a day and am very busy with my kids. I still find myself making laps up and down the stairs at the end of the day to get my steps in.
How to get your steps in:
1 hr walk: Walking is one of the best exercise there is. 1 hr will help hike up the steps. All though you will still need to get more, this is a great way to get your steps in and with nice spring weather so it’s refreshing to be outside.
Elliptical: My favorite work out machine and I usually get about 5000 in 1 hour. I do interval training so I am not on the elliptical the whole hour but in that hour I do get at least 1/2 of my days steps in.
Weight training: I have to stress the importance of weight training. It’s so good for your body and you really should do some type of weight lifting at least 3 days of week. On my weight training days its pretty hard to get my steps. I have had to mix things up and do intervals of walking or elliptical in between sets. It works and I am able to get in my many of my steps though my hour of training.
Using the stairs: I just set the timer if I need more steps at the end of day. I go up and down until my timer goes off. I get my heart rate up and really feel good after doing this.
These are just a few examples of ways to get your steps in. The list is endless. Be creative just make sure you make it to 10.000 a day!
Best pedometer in my opinion is the Omron HJ-112 Digital Pocket Pedometer. Click to check it out.
If you don’t have a pedometer most definitely get one!! Have a great week and make it a fit one!
