Exercise, workouts, wellness some of those words are familiar for you.
But how many times have you heard or said these:
- I’ve no time!
- I live in a hurry every day!
- I’m too busy to exercise!
- I don’t know where to start!
- Tomorrow I begin!…often never 😉
No excuse is valid; it isn’t necessary to make big trainings or running marathons to have the best health possible…you’re a foodie and me too, there’re so many temptations..sometimes is a bit tricky.. but certainly you can achieve it 🙂
With small changes in your home or office you can beat your sedentary lifestyle!
Lets talk clear: foodies prefer to eat than to make exercise ;)…but you know I’m an amateur-personal trainer (for my friends, relatives and occasionally people I don’t know…) and some of the no-phrases said before were also in my mouth as a food lover 🙂
I don’t give the example of a friend that we begun to train together various years ago, she was with an overweight of more than 55 pounds (25 kgs).
The nutritionist told her that in 1 year you can download doing exercise and eating healthy…in only in 3 months got a normal weight, she was less tired and guess what.. eating more but in a balance way!
In a series of articles on health, nutrition and sports I’m going to expose some health guides, tips & tricks from a foodie point of view -beginning from less to more- you’ll see significant progress, actually you’ll be astonished 🙂
With Regular Physical Activity, Good Hydration & Eating Reasonably You Win:
1.- Prevent heart diseases
2.- Control and improve your blood pressure
3.- Preventing and combating diabetes (potential problem of sweet lovers)
4.- Lose weight – a delicious bonus that always come very good! Practically it’s an epidemic disease in the developed world, in both adults and children
5.- Help to fight depression, anxiety, improving your mood (for the natural endorphins, substances secreted by the body during exercise)
6.- Prevent lumbar and lower back injuries; in hands and feet too (typical of runners with potential falls & sprains…I ate some, but with exercise I’ve minimized them)
7.- Prevention of brain problems (more oxygen in your brain is always good)
8.- Improve your self-esteem and you’ll lower your stress also
9.- Improves your sleep
And the list could go on and on!!
If you aren’t accustomed to have an exercise plan, you can start adding a little more movement into your daily life:
10.- In the morning or when you can, stretch your muscles.
11.- In buildings why you don’t use the stairways instead of the elevator (if you aren’t hurried) for example stop the elevator 1 floor before reaching your destination. Quick and easy…
12.- Walk for 10 minutes at least 3 times a day (Read your favorite food blogs and later walk 😉
13.- When shopping or doing some tasks, park your car a few blocks before your destiny and walk.
14.- If you use public transport, pick it some blocks before or get off a few blocks to your destiny (if the day is nice there is no excuse)
15.- Dance! While you listen music dance, it’s an excellent aerobic exercise (if you’re at your office take care… unless you’re a super dancer 😉
After you’ve passed certain sedentary habits, I’ll be increasing the types and classes of exercises, explain different appropriated healthy foods and useful tips…I assure you from my personal experience, you won’t believe it!
Note: Before start to do some “exercise” is a must to get a visit to your doctor! Yes, I’m pretty sure that you already knew it 🙂
I’m very interested to hear your opinions and comments about this health theme.
