19th September 2010 - todays facebook email

Luck is a dividend of sweat. The more you sweat, the luckier you get. Ray Kroc

Today’s email is inspired by Amanda who is undertaking the Great North Run today for the Stroke Association. We’ve already raised some money for her but feel free to sponsor some more at http://www.justgiving.com/amandasmith-wilcox. You can watch it on the bbc too if you want to.

It’s easier to move in the summer, you can walk everywhere, but now the days are getting shorter and the idea of walking on a cold, damp, dark morning simply doesn't appeal to most!

SO I got to thinking... what could we do this winter?

I have to admit I do still enjoy a walk, I just wear warmer clothing, there’s nothing better than a brisk walk on cold winter morning when the sun is rising.

However if that’s not your thing, how about trying those Zumba classes everyone’s talking about, they’re a great laugh apparently.

You could of course join a gym and use a treadmill, do a fitness class, go for a swim. The options are endless, it’s important to find something you enjoy.

There are different kinds of exercising, including;

Aerobic, cardiovascular such as walking, running, swimming, which burns calories and improves fitness. Resistance training including weights which strengthens your muscles

and stretching exercises such as yoga or pilates which increases flexibility.

If you aren’t doing anything at all, just concentrate on moving more in your day-to-day life. Start by doing just a little bit more than you normally do, use the stairs, park further away from the shop door, get off a bus stop sooner or walk the dog a bit further (we managed an hour yesterday). Have a dance around the house whilst you’re doing your housework or cooking your tea. Anything that gets you moving move!

Including activity in your daily life will help you keep the weight you lose off for good!

Enjoy today, have a great run Amanda, beat the chicken!

Remember life starts now.

Are you living yet?
