What a great weekend. From Friday Morning to Sunday evening producers and camera crew were here from New York. HealthiNation does an award winning series of Documentary’s on their site honoring Advocates. I got a e-mail some time ago about them filming my journey but it was going to my junk e-mail. I was filtering my junk and came across it and was so excited. God puts these amazing opportunities in my path and I am truly blessed!!
Burn some calories while you shape up your home.
It’s that time of year where you get the itch to put some order into your home. Doctors believe that even with short bouts of mild exercise can help improve your fitness level. So yes chores around your house and gardening can burn calories along with stretching and toning your muscles.
All though its not likely to give you a perfect swimsuit body doing some sort of moderate activity for 30 minutes or more ever day can bring some real health benefits. Now if you add the 30 min you spend doing exercising like walking or biking to your 30 minutes of doing chores you are getting a full hour of exercise. If your trying to lose weight it is recommended that you get 6o minutes a day of exercise. Yeah!!

3 Tips to get you moving and making exercise a part of YOUR LIFE!!!!!
1. Don’t Think!! JUST DO!!
Don’t just sit around thinking about exercising. Get Up and Get Moving!! Do it!! Words are Words!! Put action to those words and get moving!
2. Do It For YOURSELF!!!!
Don’t do it for Grandma, Dad, Hubby, Do it for yourself!! You will most likely make this goal of getting exercise apart of your life if you do it for yourself. Sure you can make doing it for your family because you want to live along life with them apart of the reason you want to get in shape. BUT do this for YOU!! YOU deserve it and if you can take the time make a vision board to inspire you so on the days you don’t want to get out of bed you can look at it and remember this is for you!! To better YOU, your life, your health!!
3. Mix It UP!!!
Do all kinds of exercise. Don’t get yourself board by doing the same thing everyday. Walk, Take group fitness classes, Run on the beach, Do some weight lifting at the gym, Do a fun out door boot camp class. MIX it up and keep it fresh. Locally we have Nampa Fit Studio!!
They have all kinds of great classes from BodyPump with weights to Zumba!! So get in and come have some fun!!
