Fitness Friday

Just a quick post today. It has been a super busy week, and next week probably will be too. Just this week I have moved away from a lower carb diet with walking as my main exercise, to a more carb cycling eating pattern with higher intensity workouts. Weight lifting is not something I really enjoy, nor do I want long weight lifting workouts. But, weight bearing exercises are super important to bone health, so I do them. The video below is done with 5 pound dumbbells, so if you are a beginner start with lighter weights. She goes through the moves very fast, so do them at your level. If you have any pain, stop, and be sure and do a warm up, and stretch after. It is a quick 5 minutes long, which is perfect for me. The weather was beautiful today, so I spent a good deal of time doing yard work and gardening.
