Lets move!

Now i know the election is still fresh in our minds, and i dont want to start a fight or bring up any touchy subjects so im going to start out by saying that this is not meant to be offensive in the slightest. I just wanted to talk a little bit about someone who is making a HUGE difference in alot of childrens lives. Helping them to become healthy, fit, and happy. Michelle Obama, current first lady of the United States is has used her easy publicity to let her voice be heard and to make a change. .Her campaign, Let’s Move!,  is dedicated to solving the challenge of childhood obesity within a generation, so that children born today will grow up healthier and able to pursue their dreams. She helps to put kids on the track to a healthy future from the begining. If you need statistics, info, or even tips to get heathy, one of the most reliable sources you can find, is the first lady’s official website campaign,  http://www.letsmove.gov/. Most first ladys are just that, the presidents wife, but I admire the way Michelle is using her power to make a difference.   

Exercise for Those Who Hate It! Get Active Everyday!

Constantly busy. No time. Too much homework. Your favorite show is on. Don’t worry, I’ve used the same excuses and i feel your pain. I hate to exercise just as much as the next person. Need some sneaky tips on easy exercises you can do every day? Look no further!

1. Take the stairs. I know people always say take the stairs take the stairs but hey! its adequate advice. From now on make it a point to park on the bottom level of the parking garage and walk to the top instead of taking the elevator. Make it a point to walk up and down those cozy stairs in your house five times ever morning. its great for the legs, glutes, and if you do it enough it can be great cardio!

2. Hanging with friends? Get active! Whenever i make a date with my friends we go see a movie, or go to lunch. Why don’t you do something active! Take a hike! Go rollerblading! Take a trip to the local ice-rink! Plus, exercising with friends if better then doing it alone.  Make a point of getting active and having fun. Think outside of the box.

3. Pace. Are you constantly on the phone like me? Well a sneaky way to get some easy exercise is to pace when your on the phone. Instead of sitting on the couch painting your toesies, stand up and zone out. walk in circles. walk from one end of the house to the other. it seems silly but its easy and you barely know your doing it.
