Whatever Gets You Moving!

My favorite kind of exercise changes depending on my mood. Some days it's quiet and contemplative and I need to be quiet so I don't wake the kids from nap. So it's a pilates day. Other days I'm bursting with energy so the kids and I turn on a mix CD and dance for a half hour straight, throwing our arms up and hopping all around.

Still other days are filled with errands and I welcome the task of strapping the boys into the double stroller and power walking to the drug store, butcher and dry cleaner. Every half hour of moderate walking burns 150 calories AND I'm crossing things off my to-do list while my children chat with me about everything they see in the neighborhood. That is some serious multitasking.

But when I'm not trying to fit exercise in around being a mom, I like to do dance aerobic videos or classes, like Zumba. It gets your body moving, your heart pumping and it's fun and distracting, so you don't have time to think about being tired. When you're done you not only feel exercised and energized, but also kind of accomplished in the sense that suddenly you feel like you can actually dance!

I think it's pretty important to work some weight lifting in, too, even if it's only one or two days a week. Even a little bit can make a difference. Losing weight and being healthy are of course most important, but women like to be toned, too!

I think it's important for exercise interests to change. At each stage in life schedules change, bodies ache and break and your health needs fluctuate as well. If you can roll with the punches and change things up to keep exercise fresh and exciting, you'll always be ready to sweat it out.

Force training and persistence training are the terms that proceed to perplex health conscious individuals. The purpose being they cannot differentiate between both. In truth, both the terms imply the same. It is extremely most important to fully grasp the thought of force or persistence training earlier than establishing the learning procedures.

"About 2 weeks ago I read all the ab strengthening stuff on your site because I decided I wanted to be strong, instead of having a lot of belly fat. So I started eating healthier, running, exercising, you name it - everything your site said to do to help. Now I am noticing a real difference! Thank you for making this. :D xD"

[This calorie calculator is] the most useful tool on the web that I can find… Also, I compared the calories calculated by your calculator to the calories calculated by the treadmill at my gym, and they're within a couple calories of each other, so yours is as accurate as we're going to get. REALLY AWESOME TOOL. I love it and depend on it. Thank you sooooo much for making this available."

Thank you very much, I was too lean before 2 years (55 Kgs), after the gym now I'm 72kgs, all the muscles have developed... when someone hand shakes with me it can be squeezed easily, they're making fun of me!
