Jump start your day!

Posted by Marjolein Brugman on Monday, October 4, 2010

In most cases, losing a little extra weight will enhance a person’s health.  It has been proven that regular light resistance training along with some cardio vascular exercise helps to increase muscle mass which in turn increases the rate at which your body uses energy which in turn helps to shed the extra fat and build more lean muscle which in turn helps to burn more fat and improve health. Do you see the simple cycle that occurs with a small 20-minute commitment to some daily movement?

Start the day with some protein like eggs, yoghurt or a protein smoothie to regulate your blood hormones and sugar levels and then engage in a mild exercise program like AeroPilates, which incorporates both strength and cardio training.

You will quickly see the positive mental and physical changes.
What seems like a large commitment in time and effort is an essential gift that you owe to your self if you want to live a longer more enjoyable life.
