100 Days to Health - Day 8 | Get Moving

Week 2 –  Day 8 (Get Moving, Stay Moving)

GET MOVING Exercise helps regulate at least 18 different hormones. These hormones help produce energy and make you feel better. Great news for people who struggle with tiredness, exercising actually gives you more energy.

Many of the hormones regulated by exercise help manage blood pressure, blood sugar, moods, bowel function and sleep patterns. You will find in time as you increase your exercise that your health improves dramatically.

exercise

This week you will add five minutes of exercise. Whether it is walking, cycling, swimming or running. Try do the exercise at the same time, everyday. Be prepared to gradually increase the amount of time you exercise over the next few weeks.

For now, stick to 5 minutes and . . .

Just do it.

AVOIDArtificial Sweeteners


SPECIAL NOTES:
 

Artificial Sweetners containing aspartame are known to upset the Endocrine System, which is the system that almost controls every function in the body including weight.The artificial sweeteners can actually slow your metabolism adding to weight problems, increase blood pressure and cause blood sugar problems.

Headaches, constipation and sleep disorders can also be related to the intake of artificial sweeteners.

Artificial Sweeteners are found in all diet products.

Sweeten with raw honey or pure fructose as these will NOT upset your blood sugar directly or have any damaging side effects on your Endocrine system.
Please note that fructose is not the same as High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS). Pure fructose is made from processed fruit sugar. 
Hopefully in time you may not feel the need to sweeten anything. Read Chapter 9 of Perfect Health page 106 for more information.
GOOD HABIT #2

Go for a walk, swim or run at the same time every day for 5 minutes

The number one reason people excuse themselves from exercising is that they don’t have the time.  For now all you have to find is 5 minutes in every 24 hours. 
It must be at the same time everyday as habits are formed by doing things at the same time everyday. 
Personally I like to walk in the morning before breakfast and if the weather is beautiful, again in the late afternoon after working. You just find a time and an exercise that suits you. Remember if you’re trying to get your metabolism going in order to loose some extra weight, then exercising in the morning is best.
