Fitness and Exercise, Need to know

Is Exercise Necessary?

Before 2012 After 2013

Before I changed over to this lifestyle, I began with a Zumba DVD. I barely made it through the beginner version. Over time, as I transitioned to this way of eating, Zumba was not challenging enough (if you don’t break a sweat, you are not working).

The best exercise you can do is the one in which you are having fun and not thinking about it as being exercise. For me, I just love to Hula Hoop! I could not do it as a child because nobody taught me that the bigger the hoop, the easier it is to keep it up and hooping! I started with a very large hoop, which I made at home, and over time, I cut it down to a smaller and even smaller size! It is easy to hoop and easy to make one!

So Easy to Make and So Easy and Fun to Hoop!

I know it is old fashioned to use DVD’s, but when the cable gets knocked out, I can still work out! I know rotate through DVD’s of ( cardio, yoga, weight lifting, hula hooping) like P90X, P90X2, Jillian Michaels, etc. I struggle with finding DVD’s which match my level of fitness and also keeping it interesting and new.

If I do not exercise every day, I risk eliminating it totally. I average 45 minutes of DVD workouts, 30 minutes walking the dog and of course house cleaning and yard work too. 

If you need group support, join a local class in a community center or health club. There are so many types of classes available; like yoga, weight training etc. Many of these classes have various levels from things like beginner chair yoga to advanced boot camp.

I think the point of the 90 minutes is that we sit too much. If you don’t have access to a community center, health club or DVD’s, you can deep clean your house, wash and vacuum your car, walk your dog, etc. If possible, don’t sit for more than an hour.
