Some women don’t exercise at all because they think that a fitness program means they must spend hours in a gym, when actually as little as thirty minutes of moderate exercise each day is enough to improve or maintain your physical health? Look, with 1440 minutes given to you each day, surely you can spare 30 minutes for a life changing investment. By making the choice to include daily exercise as a part of your life, you begin your journey to a thinner you.
If you are like me, your time is limited. With family obligations, a full work schedule, errands to run and meals to prepare, I sometimes wonder how I get it all done. Before I began working out, I couldn’t imagine how I was going to find even five minutes a day to exercise. But once I started making physical fitness part of my routine, I can’t imagine life without it.
It’s true, with as little as 30 minutes of physical activity a day, your body will begin to change. For starters, exercise helps to change your metabolism. Once you start working out, your body will begin to use the food you eat to refuel itself.
Never worry about counting calories again with a sensible diet that’s rich in nutritious foods, coupled with 30 minutes of exercise each day. After a short time, you will begin to lose weight without giving it a whole lot of thought. Now what can be simpler than that? You’ll end up burning more fat as you build the muscles that are necessary for exercise.
As your muscles develop, you can alternate between aerobic and strength training exercises. I strongly urge you to incorporate Pilates into your workout as well. That’s because Pilates helps to strengthen your core muscles which in turn will help to keep you safe from injury. The added bonus with Pilates is that you can look 5 to 10 pounds thinner with a toned torso that is sure to turn heads.
You’ll notice mental and emotional benefits from exercising all throughout your day, too. Exercise helps your body to deal with stress, promotes better sleep, and aids in the prevention of many illnesses.
It’s a small amount of time to devote to such a beneficial way of losing weight. Won’t you start today? Just 30 minutes of exercise is all it takes. Once you get started, you won’t want to turn back.
