Welcome to Week 5!
Before going into the details for this week i'd like to announce the first 2 winners of the healthy goodie package:
1-Chava Malka
2-Racheli
Please email me at NoWayThatsHealthy@gmail.com with your address so I can mail you the package!

I still have 2 more packages left so be sure you are apart of this plan by commenting, sharing, liking etc.

For Week 5 we will be incorporating exercise into our day. Exercise does not need to be a 1 hour workout every day. You do not have to go to gym or buy any special equipment to do it.

The key here is to get more movement into your day. Park farther away from the store and WALK. Put on some music and dance. Many of us have jobs where we tend to sit all day so it is important you try to get out more and get moving.

If you prefer a more scheduled exercise plan I suggest starting off doing about 20-30 minutes 4 days a week of exercise. There is so much you can do. Try to keep the intensity up as that will help you burn more calories. You can run on a treadmill, use weights, or find a workout video online or a dvd that you enjoy and do that.
I prefer to workout as soon as I can in the morning, that way it is done with and I can move on to other things I need to get done before my kids are home from school.
I also find that exercise really does help improve my mood and overall energy.
Just be sure you keep yourself hydrated and do not forget about the other things we are still sticking to from the previous weeks.

I wrote a series on "How to Stick to a Workout Plan and Love it"- To check it out CLICK HERE

As always I am here to help encourage you. Please comment below and let me know how the plan is going for you. Also remember that working out does not need to be for weight loss. It is good for our mind and our body as well as our overall health.

Thanks for joining!

  1. You are so right about exercise being not just for weight loss. When I finally got to the point where I was able to get myself to walk after dinner, I started to be able to hear my body tell me it wanted to move. Good, regular exercise is also helpful to people who have difficulty with sleeping. I find I sleep much better when I exercise regularly.
