7/13/12 - Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Friday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 11. July 2012 08:00
In last Sunday's blog (07/05), we discussed a rest day.  But it seems important to talk about what 'active rest' is.  By a day off, it's really not what I had in mind to sit on the sofa all day with no activity at all.  Even if you are not weight training that day, or don't have time to take a 45 minute walk, there are lots of activities that burn calories and don't seem like workout, but keeps your blood pumping.  Running around the park with your kids, washing the car, jumping on the trampoline, walking behind a mower (if you can use a push one...great.  I'm just not that hard core), or walking your dog.  All these activities keep your circulation flowing and your heart pumping, so even if you're taking a 'day off', your still doing something for yourself to achieve your goal of healthy living.
