My Healthy Journey

I''m currently overweight as is my husband. I''m now a mom with a one year old and I want to be healthy for her. I want to be able to show her the tools to be healthy. To do that, I need to have them. For my journey, I am trying to do small attainable goals rather than one giant goal at a much later date. I''ve tried those and I end up disappointed. So I''m doing smaller ones which can add up over time. I have lost some of my pregnancy weight but I want to lose more.

Try this little "trick" this week . . . the “1 Times 10 Trick”

Find 10 opportunities during the day to raise your heart rate for just 1 minute at a time. You can do anything for only 1 minute, right? You’ll burn as many as 300-400 extra calories a day by doing this little trick alone!!! emoticon emoticon

Little mini-challenge for you this week! Hopefully, you’ll be reminded of this every day, when you check your sparkpage:

Tone up—without leaving the comfort of your bed! Before getting out of bed each morning, spend just a few minutes doing exercises (or stretches). The softer surface of a mattress forces your muscles to work harder, for stability and balance. Try hip raises (bridges), bicycle-abs, the clam, side-twists (while sitting up, maybe add arm circles to that one). Don’t forget stretches, too. A great one would be pulling your knees towards your chest (good for sciatica). We’ll call it---Fitness for Lazy Days! emoticon emoticon

Little mini-challenge for you this week! Hopefully, you’ll be reminded of this everyday—when you check your sparkpage:

“Get Up & Move”—at least once an hour. Studies show that hours of inactivity change the way your body processes glucose & fat. Continuous sitting causes metabolic changes that increase blood sugar levels & decrease the amount of fat used for fuel. Both then cause an increase in fat storage—not what you want to happen! Let’s “Get Up & Move” throughout this 5% Challenge!! We can do this, my friends! emoticon emoticon
