We'd like to know some of your secrets to fitness and health!
Feel free to post it here! :)
Strength training and cardio every other day. I am training for a marathon so these go on the same days. I hit the treadmill and run/power walk for three and a half miles and then go home for some plie squats and weights. I do it every other day so I can relax the muscles and let them heal and then back at it again. I am slowly running more and more.
I also changed up my diet. I eat every two hours with more protein and less carbs. 8 glasses of water a day and a small cup of coffee in the morning for sanity. I haven't worked out for two weeks beyond a strength training video and I am still losing weight.
love reading your replies!
Thanks for your replies. Keep it coming! :)
We got away from processed foods and sugary foods. We learned to love the taste of real food produced by nature....makes it easier to eat healthy.
Work out? How about PLAY??? I get bored with workouts, but with my kids and grandkids a workout can be FUN! Playing soccer, dancing to music with Just Dance on the Wii, sprints with the teens, swimming, biking, playing frisbee golf...all FUN workouts. DD and I use Insanity DVDs to "work" out together and have fun doing it.
Quoting Impressionists: This! My third day of homemade flavored water. I love the taste and it is helping me to cut down on the Sprites.
All of my practices are new, because I just quit exercise altogether the last time a tried after New Years. Now my only goal is the recumbent for 3 miles a day 5 days a week. It's a 90 day goal along with losing 10 pounds. After the 90 days I'll up the goal! I can always choose to do more in the meantime...
Interesting water you have. What's in there?
