Hope everyone has had a good week. I get little fitness tips daily from my Wii Fit. I just thought I'd share a few with you all. (1) I'm reminded over and over again not to hold my breath while I do my exercises and stretching. Holding your breath can increase your blood pressure. Breath as normally as possible while exercising. I know this is easier said than done. (2) Drink plenty of water (6-8 cups) and eat more fruits and veggies each day while trying to lose weight. The water helps keep you hydrated while removing wastes. The fruits and veggies provide vitamins and minerals to keep you from feeling tired and sluggish. (3) If you're hungry before exercising, eat a banana which is easily digested and provides quick energy for your activity.
Happy exercising! :-)
