EXERCISE

Of everything you’ve seen on the site, I’m guessing this subject would be the one you are most familiar with. Maybe not in practice but in knowledge. After all, we are taught the importance of exercise from our first recess and P.E. classes. How many nutrition classes did you ever take in grade school? How about classes on the environment? Exactly.


We all know the importance of exercise for maintaining our natural shape. Richard Simmons, Jack Lalanne and Tony Horton made us never forget. But one of the most important aspects of exercise is what it does for your chemistry. You know, your moods. Not only does it increase the good chemicals in your brain, but it gives a great amount of self esteem and confidence. Couple those with the increased metabolism in your body to help aid digestion and  I think it’s clear what we all should be doing.

5 BODY Changes
to make NOW

EXERCISE FIRST - Exercise in the morning before you eat. It will maximize your benefit and raise your metabolism for the morning.
PARABEN FREE SKINCARE- Do not put anything with parabens on your skin. The skin is the largest organ in the body and it will absorb what you put on it
ORGANIC when you can - Expensive but VERY important. Start with all meats, and soft skinned fruits/vegatables (blueberries, tomatoes, etc) 
CHIROPRACTIC- Getting regular adjustments can help keep your body aligned, preventing future pain and allowing nerve function to be healthy
TAKE THE STAIRS - Instead of always taking the elavator or waiting 15 minute for the parking spot directly in front of the store, try walking more. It not only helps your body get exercise, it helps clear your mind.
KEESHA’s FAVORITE EXERCISE

Keesha loves to work out. And it’s never been about the way she wants to look. She loves the way it feels. In  all my years knowing her, this has always been true. I often worry she is pushing it too hard - especially when she’ll take 2 grueling classes in a row (ones I surely wouldn’t make it through!). But her endorphins are boosted and her spirit is encouraged whenever she works out.

Her favorite activities are:
BOXING (of which she almost trained professionally)
ZUMBA Dance class
KRAV MAGA (form of Martial Arts)
HIKING (one we love to do together)

She inspires me to want to work out more. Of course, as I get older it is becoming even more necessary so it’s even more motivating.

Exercise: 7 benefits of regular physical activity
You know exercise is good for you, but do you know how good? From boosting your mood to improving your sex life, find out how exercise can improve your life.
By Mayo Clinic staff
Want to feel better, have more energy and perhaps even live longer? Look no further than exercise. The health benefits of regular exercise and physical activity are hard to ignore. And the benefits of exercise are yours for the taking, regardless of your age, sex or physical ability. Need more convincing to exercise? Check out these seven ways exercise can improve your life.
No. 1: Exercise controls weight
Exercise can help prevent excess weight gain or help maintain weight loss. When you engage in physical activity, you burn calories. The more intense the activity, the more calories you burn. You don't need to set aside large chunks of time for exercise to reap weight-loss benefits. If you can't do an actual workout, get more active throughout the day in simple ways — by taking the stairs instead of the elevator or revving up your household chores.
No. 2: Exercise combats health conditions and diseases
Worried about heart disease? Hoping to prevent high blood pressure? No matter what your current weight, being active boosts high-density lipoprotein (HDL), or "good," cholesterol and decreases unhealthy triglycerides. This one-two punch keeps your blood flowing smoothly, which decreases your risk of cardiovascular diseases. In fact, regular physical activity can help you prevent or manage a wide range of health problems and concerns, including stroke, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, depression, certain types of cancer, arthritis and falls.
No. 3: Exercise improves mood
Need an emotional lift? Or need to blow off some steam after a stressful day? A workout at the gym or a brisk 30-minute walk can help. Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that may leave you feeling happier and more relaxed. You may also feel better about your appearance and yourself when you exercise regularly, which can boost your confidence and improve your self-esteem.
No. 4: Exercise boosts energy
Winded by grocery shopping or household chores? Regular physical activity can improve your muscle strength and boost your endurance. Exercise and physical activity deliver oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and help your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. And when your heart and lungs work more efficiently, you have more energy to go about your daily chores.
No. 5: Exercise promotes better sleep
Struggling to fall asleep? Or to stay asleep? Regular physical activity can help you fall asleep faster and deepen your sleep. Just don't exercise too close to bedtime, or you may be too energized to fall asleep.
No. 6: Exercise puts the spark back into your sex life
Do you feel too tired or too out of shape to enjoy physical intimacy? Regular physical activity can leave you feeling energized and looking better, which may have a positive effect on your sex life. But there's more to it than that. Regular physical activity can lead to enhanced arousal for women. And men who exercise regularly are less likely to have problems with erectile dysfunction than are men who don't exercise.
No. 7: Exercise can be fun
Exercise and physical activity can be a fun way to spend some time. It gives you a chance to unwind, enjoy the outdoors or simply engage in activities that make you happy. Physical activity can also help you connect with family or friends in a fun social setting. So, take a dance class, hit the hiking trails or join a soccer team. Find a physical activity you enjoy, and just do it. If you get bored, try something new.
The bottom line on exercise
Exercise and physical activity are a great way to feel better, gain health benefits and have fun. As a general goal, aim for at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day. If you want to lose weight or meet specific fitness goals, you may need to exercise more. Remember to check with your doctor before starting a new exercise program, especially if you have any health concerns.http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/exercise/HQ01676/NSECTIONGROUP=2http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/AboutThisSite/AM00057shapeimage_6_link_0shapeimage_6_link_1
I am not one for running on a treadmill. I like to get my exercise from fun activities such as tennis, hiking, dancing, etc.
