Motivational Monday: Stay on track
Happy Monday! I hope you all have a great start to this fine week. Who else is happy to see that it is finally the week of Thanksgiving? I certainly am and I hope you are too. I hope that this holiday week allows you to take at least one day off from work, spend time with family and friends, enjoy some yummy food, run a “Turkey Trot”/race, get some killer deals on potential Christmas gifts, etc. The above just about summarizes some of the reasons I am so excited for this week to be here.
This is your friendly reminder to stay active and true to your healthy lifestyle! Life is busy and wonderful with the holidays, which makes it a little too easy to make up excuses to skip out on your workouts or to justify that extra piece of pie. Did you know that just one extra day of exercise can:
1- Boost Your Productivity: Regular exercise can increase your energy and in turn increase your productivity. Motivation to work out can carry over into other daily duties that you find less than exciting (i.e. cleaning your house, cooking a healthy meal instead, preparing for your holiday parties, etc.).
2- One Day Closer: Each day that you strive to be healthy and workout gets you closer to obtaining your fitness goals. It will also keep you on the path to living a healthy lifestyle. Whether you are training for a marathon or striving to lose 10 pounds, each day can help you get closer to reaching your goal. Yes, every day counts even during the holiday season.
3- Increase in energy: With proper use of muscles and aerobic exercise, oxygen is more fully delivered to muscles and tissues. The added oxygen helps you have more strength and energy. Also, with regular activity the improvement in your heart’s strength will increase your overall energy level.
4- Nutrition and Exercise: I don’t know about you, but, when I commit to a regular exercise routine I am more likely to commit to a healthy diet as well and vice versa. Nutrition and exercise go hand-in-hand. You will see better and faster results if you combine these two things because one motivates and enhances the other.
Do you have any fit plans to stay on track this week? Are you running a Thanksgiving Day race?
