Moment of Confession: I have a love-hate relationship with exercise. If exercise involves socializing, I’m way more likely to participate. (I wish I loved exercise as much as I love cooking and eating!) I had a great night on Sunday learning how to rock climb with my cousins and friends, Mariah and Christian. I love experimenting with movement and finding new forms of exercise I enjoy.
Exercise is an important part of maintaining a healthy weight. When you move your body, you increase your circulation and the movement of your lymph fluid. Movement improves your immune system, helps you have a clear mind, and improves your mood. Exercise helps release hormones that make you feel less stressed – and less stress allows you to control your weight more easily! Exercise helps you use the energy you’ve consumed through eating AND does so much more.
I challenge you to try a new form of movement today!
