07/12/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Saturday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 10. July 2014 07:27

Engaging your partner or spouse to exercise with you can be great one-on-one time for both of you!  Walking, training for a marathon, tennis, golf and biking creates time for each other, and keeps you both healthy and energetic.  If you work out regularly, you are more likely to eat a healthier diet, since you have time invested in the whole process.

Many couples don’t enjoy strength training together because biologically their focus may be on different.  But grab a friend and join a bootcamp group or class.  The program at my gym has a flat monthly fee with unlimited attendance.  I see all kinds of different body types,  goals, ages and sexes attending regularly and supporting each other.  They are re-shaping their bodies and improving their health.

If you work toward a goal together with someone, pushing yourself and others to SHOW UP and do your best, then you all end up winners!

Tip of the Day:

Try an apple fruit salad as a refreshing sidedish for summer.  Use low-fat mayo or 0 % Greek yogurt with granny smith apples, any fruit that you like such as cherries, firm peaches, pinapple...  Toss in 1/8 cup home roasted walnuts, pecans, pinenuts or spy nuts as well as celery for crunch and enjoy a cool side dish with lunch or dinner!
