New Years Resolutions
When Jan. 1 rolls around, most people have their New Years Resolutions all mapped out. By the time March rolls around, most resolutions have been forgotten. One of the resolutions that most people have is the desire to exercise more than they did before so that they may lead a more healthier life. Well...March is here! Are you exercising like you said that you would????
Not only is it March but spring is right around the corner. It was 73 degrees here in Atlanta yesterday!!! This weekend we'll get more daylight hours as we spring our clocks forward. So, it's time to get serious about exercising...especially if you made a resolution to do so in January. Personally, my body goes through periods when I HAVE to workout...even harder than I normally do. This comes from my days of playing football in college. This is the time of year that we worked out real hard as we prepared for the upcoming season. So, I'm in the gym every day. We all want to look good for the summer, right?
What's the best time to exercise? Some people swear by a 6 a.m. jog to get their hearts racing and get them psyched up for the day. Others wouldn't dream of breaking a sweat before noon, preferring a walk around the neighborhood after dinner. But is any one time of day the best time to exercise?
The truth is that there's no reliable evidence to suggest that calories are burned more efficiently at certain times of day. But the time of day can influence how you feel when exercising.
The most important thing, experts say, is to choose a time of day you can stick with, so that exercise becomes a habit.
What are you doing? Are you exercising? If so, what do you do? And when do you do it?
