So Everyone needs an excercising buddy, and mine happens to be an American Pitbull Terrier. His name is Gage, and We go up to a hill close behind the college in town. (only after stretching of course). He loves to run and feel the open air, and that alone makes me feel better about life. I am not fond of excercising, but seeing how much he loves it, it makes me like it a little.
So today I’m going to talk about moderate excercise. There are a wide variety of ways to moderately excercise including, riding a bike, jogging, hiking, swimming, jumping on a trampoline,aerobics, pilates, yoga, rollar skating, skateboarding, playing a sport that you love. I find it best to love what your doing when you excercise, then it doesn’t seem like a chore.
So start with some stretches, so you don’t pull any muscles.
Then begin your excercising, and do it for at least half an hour. Don’t overdo yourself, but keep your heart rate up and feel the burn! =)
You can do more than one thing in a day, if you wish. I try to do three different things each week for 30 minutes. I ride a bike one day, hike with my puppy another day, and jog the third day. Keeping at least three days for excercising is not too much, and not too little. Then you have days in between to relax. Remember excercising isn’t about getting skinny. Its about feeling good in your body, loving who you are, and having more energy when you wake up the next day.
I am not fond of excercising but its important to live a healthy lifestyle. It is good for your heart to excercise, and helps maintain the blood flow to be normal. I know it’s hard to fit it into your weekly routine. Once you do, you will feel more energy at work and school and have more time to spend with loved ones, then sleeping. I will be posting a post on extreme excercise next.
