In the last few days I have begun my May fitness month! I have set a goal for myself to commit to working out 6 days a week. Although I have been fairly good in staying active, I am noticing that there are too many times I have an excuse not to exercise. Not only does this make me feel lazy and tired, it also begins to affect my back and neck causing quite a bit of discomfort at times. Life can be busy at times, but it is important for me to lead a balanced lifestyle of nutrition and exercise. I want exercise to become a daily part of my life and I want it to be something I look forward to instead of dragging my butt to get moving!
Today we see so many people becoming more and more health conscious. Many people are beginning to make the shift from focusing on everything but their own health to making themselves and their health the number one priority. Although we are bombarded with so many ways to stay healthy, many people often still trust the basic way of keeping in shape through regular exercise and maintaining a great workout routine.
My workout plan for this month consists of yoga, cardio, core strengthening and various other exercises targeting specific muscles groups. I plan to do yoga two days a week, running two days a week and walking and at-home exercises the rest of the days. My goal is to get myself into a regular exercise routine to continue after this month is done. My goal is to love working out!
Join me this month and create a fitness plan for yourself. It will be a great way to kick-start the summer! Write it down and hang it up somewhere where everyday you will see it! Keep yourself accountable and track your progress. Remember that staying active on a regular basis protects our bodies from chronic conditions and keeps us strong and healthy. Consistency and paying attention to your level of fitness contributes to your good health!
