Jill’s Fit Tip Tuesday ~ What is diabetes?

Diabetes is really on the increase. It is killing more people each year. Those it doesn’t kill can still become victim to any of a number of serious complications.

There are obvious symptoms and not so obvious symptoms. Many people out there just don’t even know they have diabetes. They are not aware of it because they are not feeling ill. The truth is that people don’t have the understanding of how serious diabetes is. Lack of knowledge really is a problem.

You really need to know what diabetes is, know how damaging it can be and take matters to act now, not later.

Type 2 diabetes is reaching epidemic proportions in the US, with the rest of the developed world following close behind. Type 2 diabetes was once known as
“adult-onset” diabetes, overweight teens in the US are being diagnosed in ever-increasing numbers. With kids as young as age 12.

Jill’s Fit Tip Tuesday ~ Get Up and Get Moving

We all know that exercise is good. From weight management, controlling diabetes, cholesterol along with high blood pressure. It also helps prevent heart disease. The benefits seem endless.

Exercise also boots energy and helps us manage stress. Studies show that it can save our lives and improve our quality of life.

According to the Surgeon Generals Report on health and physical activity higher levels of exercise are associated with the lowering of mortality rates.

Now I have to ask, with all of these benefits why is it that less than 50% of Americans are leading a active lifestyle??

We really need to start getting off the couch and start moving!

We know longer can afford to use the same old excuses that often keep us from moving.
I am too busy to exercise, I am too tired to exercise.

Let’s stop the excuses of life being to busy and start putting exercise as a priority.

Make it a priority.

“Get Up and Get Moving”

1. When going to the store or mall park as far away as you can from the entrance and walk.

2. If you must watch TV march, use a treadmill or do steps on your Wii fit if you have one.

3. Buy a pedometer to mark your progress. I just got one when I was on the Dr. OZ show and I had know Idea how hard it is to get in 10.000 steps a day. Now doing this every day I don’t have time to sit around. I have to keep moving.

4. Make exercise fun! Walking, running, Zumba, gardening. Do what makes you happy to get your body moving.

5. Walk during your lunch break.

6. Stick in your favorite work out DVD.

7. Make sure you have some variety in your exercise. Most people get bored and end up stopping exercising.

8. Take your kids on along long walk. Bike ride with your family. This will instill in your family the importance of getting exercise.

9. Train for an event. Having a mental commitment is a great way to get fit.

10. Honor yourself by making exercise apart of your life. Schedule time in your life for exercise.

Live Long, Live Happy!!
