01/21/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Saturday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 22. January 2015 06:23


One proven way to keep on track with your exercise resolutions or goals is to keep your training fresh and engaging. Try to find a new class that you’ve never tried or engage a friend to be your workout buddy.

Many people find working out with a friend keeps you accountable for showing up.  Plus, many people enjoy the social aspects of working out with someone.

You can experience strength training, Pilates, yoga, tae-bo, and pole-dancing at home with DVD’s.  You can find friends and trainers at a gym or YMCA class, or in a private studio.   Give it a try and see what you find engaging.

This year I began a new class called Pure Barre that engages small muscle movements that have shown me amazing results.  I love the community at the studio, and respect the results that have seen.  I have a trainer perform a monthly fat-pinch test to monitor my progress with my exercise plan (and to keep it real since I’m sharing with all of you what I believe is effective) I have seen amazing results in those numbers for the better.

For my kid’s holiday group present, I got them a kick-boxing toy and the video game called Kinect that engages movement by creating an avatar that mimics your movements as you do sports, or fantasy games. I thought it would be a safe way to burn off excess energy for the whole family.

 Be sure to check with your physician before newly engaging a workout plan, to make sure that you are healthy enough to begin.  Once they give you the green light, you’re on your way to a healthier lifestyle, more energy and a positive health plan!
