Move Your Booty!



Benefits of exercise:
  1. Boosts Mood
  2. Boosts Energy
  3. Controls Weight
  4. Combats diseases
  5. Helps you live a longer and healthier life
  6. Promotes better sleep
  7. You will feel better about your body 
  8. Increase desire for sex (blush)

I'm in a love-hate relationship with exercise.

I love when I'm done, but boy, can I procrastinate doing it.

The key is finding what works best with your body.

If you can handle HIIT (high intensity workouts) then great, do them. They are awesome for your body. But if you feel like you need to lay down and take a nap afterwards, they may be too much.

Your hormones, adrenal glands, or thyroid could be off and doing too much will make them worse.

I found this out during my years of trying to figure out what was wrong with me.

Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing if your body is sick. (<==Click To Tweet)

For me I like long walks while listening to music or podcasts.

Some days I will add in yoga and pilates or if I feel up to it weights.

I had to really start listening and taking cues from my body. If my thyroid was low (I could tell because I would be bone-tired, colder than usual, and feel 'off.') I rested.

Regardless of which workout plan you decide on just move your booty! Do something for yourself today. Your future self will thank you!

  1. Alicia- you had me at love/hate relationship! I'm 56 and years of putting my family first added to slower metabolism have created a crisis in my life! The Lord is painstakingly helping me change my attitudes and ways- sometimes I can't believe how I see what I need to do and still resist the truth! Thank you for sharing in such an encouraging way. Going outside to walk and enjoy His creation! hugs and blessings- #bloggercaregroup

  3. Yes, as women we always put ourselves last don't we? And then we realize when it's too late we would have been not only serving them by taking care of ourselves but us as well. Hope you enjoyed your walk.
