It's the second week in January and the weather has been amazing for this month in Chicago. Did you enjoy walking, join a gym, take a fitness class, buy fitness equipment for your home, or at least try exercise videos through on-demand? Remember, if you don't use it you lose it. Unfortunately, this doesn't apply to losing weight. You have to do something active to lose weight, if that's the goal.
Now, if you have done your strengthening exercises and then stop doing it you will see a difference in regards to your strength and enduranc,.especially, when you return to perform those exercises. It may not be a very significant change depending on how long ago those exercises were last performed. So, back to the question how's your resolution going? Enjoy what you can outdoor but have a plan B when the weather changes and keep it simple. Happy Second Week of the New Year!
It sounds basic but there's a difference between a 10 year old moving to Just Dance for the sake of just wanting to do it compared to the 40 and up group needing to move more often for the health of it. Remember how your mind makes you feel 20-something and after working out your body reminds you for three days what muscle(s) you worked out so your body makes you feel 100-something. Do not let those muscles psyche you out of the next workout.
If you hibernated these last two weeks especially if your kids were out of school then make an appointment with yourself to go for a walk. Enjoy the weather while you can. Enjoy the festivities of this New Year's Eve weekend without going over board. Enjoy the first day of the week with a smile to those muscles letting them know whose boss. Happy New Year!
