Starting the Morning Off Positive

The first thing I do every morning when I wake up is take 10 minutes to do some morning yoga, the Sun Salutation poses. It gets me ready and relaxed to start my day.

Music

I keep my motion up when doing everyday household stuff by putting on some real moving music and move/dance about the day! It is great for the attitude!

rub down

After I work out I rub my legs or arms with Castro oil and then take a quick warm bath with peroxide to avoid pain the next day. emoticon

Protein Shake

I always have a protein shake within an hour after I work out. I try to have one with a good mix of carbs and protein. It gives me a good boost of energy and my muscles get what they need to keep me going until my next meal.

Fun cardio; GREAT workout!

Follow your kids around on a playground, or park. I have a 5yo son and a 7yo son. Once in a while, for a great workout, we go to a playground, or park, and I follow them around. If they skip, then I skip. If they run, then I run. If they climb something, then I climb, if I can. You will sweat!

Strength Training vs. Cardio -----the first month

Strength training raises your metabolism HIGHER so you burn calories LONGER. Cardio helps you burn calories FASTER but for shorter spurts. If you want to see results but can't stay in your caloric range for 1st month,this may help.

Challenge Your Kids to Get You Moving

If you have older kids explain to them about one of the goals in your new healthy lifestyle is to get exercising. Give them a job of getting your moving. Tell them you will give any idea they come up with a try as long as they are doing it with you.
