SOMETIMES YOU JUST HAVE TO GET PHYSICAL
Being active is not only important for the youngsters, it’s also important for older folks, so keep it moving. Physical activity is extremely important for maintaining a healthy weight, and also instrumental in reducing your stress levels. Don’t let years of bad habits keep you down; mine is having a sweet tooth. You will have some slip-ups, but you can persevere. It comes down to taking control of your life and not letting life control you. Use this new year as a time to start a new health kick resolution. But it doesn’t matter when you start; just get started. Give yourself credit for what you are already doing. I go to the gym 3-4 days per week, I only drink water and never soda, and walk at least 20-30 minutes at least 5 times per week. But yet there is more I could be doing because my weight continues to creep. So I need to reset my goals; eat more fruits and vegetables, eat less sugar, and move more with more intense exercises. I also joined a Facebook group, Sisters4Fitness to help with motivation. It’s okay to get physical; of course do it in style, but don’t let that be an excuse not to.
