Getting Started With Exercise.......

I hear people say ,quite often, that they don't know where to start when it comes to exercising. It seems to be a bit overwhelming and quite frustrating for most. The answer is simple though ...... JUST START MOVING. A daily walk, bike ride or just getting outside and playing kickball with your kids is a wonderful way to start. It is important that you make time for yourself to exercise. You will be a happier person for doing so.....I promise! With that said, this is what I recommend if you are new to exercise or haven't exercised in quite some time:

* Walk 5 days a week for 30 minutes.
* Drink atleast 80 oz. of water.
* Eat a healthy diet and cut out cakes, cookies, candies, ice cream, etc......all junk food.
* Take a multi-vitamin and Omega 3 supplement

I suggest you follow this for a couple of weeks. After a few weeks, then begin walking for 45 minutes and begin incorporating a strength training routine two days a week. Cardio combined with strength training will get you on your way to losing weight and getting into great shape!
