I worked really hard on my exercise today. My exercise was mostly walking. I did 10006 steps of a 10000 step goal so really felt good about that. This was 3.65 miles. I have been having knee problems and had had to cut back but I am trying really hard now to at least make the 10000 steps. emoticon emoticon

I bombed out on day 1 and skipped breakfast. I don't usually do this but I had to be at a meeting at 9:00 and slept late and missed breakfast. This is unusual for me. This morning, I was going to make a smoothing and didn't have milk; so, I took my frozen strawberries and put Cool Whip on them. Delicious.

Anxious to see what Day 3 brings.

Jo Ann

MOVE

Subject: Healthy Habits Challenge Day 2 – We like to move it, move it!

Welcome to Day 2 of the Healthy Habits Challenge.

How did it go for you yesterday?

Did you discover any new ideas for delicious, healthy breakfast options? No worries if you didn’t, but take a look at the recipe ideas I included to see if you want to try something new.

Today we are going to address physical activity. Before you cringe, and close out of this email…just hang on with me here for a minute here.

The most important piece of any healthy lifestyle is exercise. While diet is important, it can’t provide some of the same benefits as exercise. Making movement a priority in your day is key to establishing healthy habits. Plan your day around fitting in at least 30 minutes of exercise, at least 5 times a week. While it has obvious benefits for weight loss, exercise offers lesser known benefits as well.

BOOST YOUR MOOD

Exercise can help boost your mood by increasing your endorphins. These “feel good” hormones flood your brain while you exercise, and continue for hours even after your workout has ended. Exercise has been referred to as a natural antidepressant. It doesn’t have to be high intensity either. Even low-intensity exercises have mood-boosting benefits. So start by just talking a walk!

IMPROVE YOUR SLEEP

Regular exercise can also benefit your sleep. It can help strengthen your circadian rhythms, which not only impacts your sleep but how refreshed you feel when you wake up. Psychology Today addresses the impact of exercise on sleep, stating, “A recent National Sleep Foundation poll found that regular exercisers were significantly more likely to report sleeping well on most nights than people who were not physically active. Research has shown exercise can help to improve not only the quantity of sleep but also the quality: studies show daytime physical activity may stimulate longer periods of slow-wave sleep, the deepest and most restorative stages of sleep.”

MAKE SMALL CHANGES

Like anything else, exercise is a habit that is developed over time. Don’t be afraid to start small. If you can’t commit to 30 minutes of exercise at once, then break it down into smaller chunks. Just start taking steps to work towards 30 minutes of exercise 5 days a week. You will be benefiting your healthy lifestyle, and establishing new habits for years to come.

WHAT TYPE OF ACTIVITY CAN YOU COMMIT TO THIS WEEK?

Holler at us in the discussion below to let us know! The Team Members of Whole Foods for Health Group group can act as your support system, and you can probably offer encouragement to someone else, so be sure to give us a shout out!

Here's to MOVING THAT BODY! emoticon

Got to go get my groove on,
