Don't be so fixated on how you are going to get moving more than actually moving.
True. It's great to have a fitness plan:
(I recommended a mixture of workouts including some form of fun fitness.) But you don't have to have one to jump on the track to better health.
According to the President's Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition "only 5% of adults are physically active for 30 minutes everyday." Ahh! This is shocking and scary. Get this though, they also state that "only 6 six states (Illinois, Hawaii, Massachusetts Mississippi, New York and Vermont) require physical education in every grade, K-12 and on top of that, "children now spend more than seven hours in front of a screen (TV, computer, etc.)"
What am I saying, without us making a conscious and deliberate decision, the future of our future generation, our children are looking REAL obese. Let's try to influence the direction of this. We can do better.
Encourage your child to go out and play. If this isn't a possibility or it's unsafe, sign them up for a gym membership at the YMCA. Create an environment where they can get the physical activity they need everyday to stay healthy.
For adults, get involved in some form of consistent physical activity. I'm not sure what that looks like for you, but tryout Zumba, take a jog, call up a girlfriend and go walking. But physical fitness helps us in so many ways aside from obesity. It prevents diseases, maintains metabolism, increases energy and mood. There's so many more benefits. Believe it or not, just like your mind takes care of your body, your body can also take care of your mind.
ALSO, next month, I'll be starting a dance fitness class. I plan to post vids and such so you can join us wherever you are.
