My Journey to Healthy Living Starts TODAY! by Joy Ezeka
Recently I’ve been concerned about my health and living healthy especially as I’m getting older. Watching what I eat, when I eat and exercising. I must say, it takes a lot of discipline to go down that route- reducing my sugar intake, junk food consumption, and eating late at night. But also know that all that is nothing if I don’t add an exercise regimen to my journey to healthy living. I am no expert but I’ve come to the conclusion that I can adopt a healthy lifestyle where I don’t have to starve my self or follow all that loose-weight-gimmicks. It’s just going to take a lot of determination and discipline to stay on track!
Just discovered Adagurl’s fitness channel on YouTube and I am excited! One, because the routines are done to Nigerian songs (Naija for life!) and also it kinda looks easy (I hope so!). So I’m going to try this ⇓, this weekend!
In this workout routine, I will get to do:
Hips to knee-height (or lower). Put weights in your heels. Abs braced. Chest up. Knees behind toes.
Abs braced. Shoulders back and down. Chest lifted. Hips down. Kick feet as far back as possible. Stand straight up to complete.
Abs braced. Hips down. Shoulders back and down. Keep the upper body still the entire time. No bouncing.
Taking these first steps will ultimately bring me one step closer to better fitness and health! Try it out and let me know how it went and also let me know what your health challenges are and how you deal with them. Would love to hear from you!
