Healthy Monday: No Gym, No Problem

Get Healthy Without the Gym

You don’t need an expensive gym membership or fancy equipment to get active. Exercise is any
movement that works your muscles and uses more energy than resting. Try walking around your
neighborhood, playing tag with the kids, using resistance bands, running up and down the stairs,
making your own weights at home or doing push ups and sit ups.

Come up with some creative, free fitness ideas this week. Remember that playing sports, swimming, biking and other fun activities all count as exercise!

You may even want to drop by Glenlake Park and try out the Adult Exercise Equipment adjacent to the playground. You get to play while your children climb and play nearby.

Healthy Monday: Exercise Can Provide Energy

healthy monday headerEver feel “too tired to exercise” in the morning or after work? It’s more likely that you’re emotionally tired and unmotivated. Look past this initial reaction and follow through with your fitness plans; your body will appreciate the short-term energy boost and stamina that comes with physical activity!

Challenge yourself to fight fatigue and stick to your exercise routine this week. Note how refreshed and energetic you feel after your workout.

Healthy Monday: Stay on Track While Eating Out

healthy monday headerDon’t let your good habits disappear when eating out! There are plenty of healthful options available in restaurants like grilled entrees (instead of fried), simple salads with dressing on the side, and extras like broth-based soups and steamed veggies. Don’t be afraid to order exactly what you need to stay healthy, or take part of your food to go!

Look at your schedule this Monday and see if you’re eating out this week. Take some time to research the restaurant’s menu online, or to look up some healthy options in that culinary tradition.
