While focusing my January blogs on processed foods, I want to take a timeout to remind you - physical activity is a key component of your healthy lifestyle, and moving every day is critical.
Do you like to exercise? If so, schedule in exercise appointments for the gym, a fitness class, a swim, or any other workout that makes you break a sweat for at least 30 minutes, 5 days a week.
Don’t like to exercise? Think physical activity instead – things that get you up and moving but don’t pressure or frustrate you. You’ve got to enjoy this for the long haul! Try making a morning walking date with a friend, taking a lunchtime dance class with a colleague, or finding an online yoga class that you appreciate as “me time” – also aiming for at least 30 minutes, 5 days a week.
Just One Thing to do: Get moving!
P.S. Sledding, throwing snowballs, ice skating, building snowmen, playing in the snow with your dog, even shoveling - all great ways to get exercise in the winter!
