We’re still working for a few more weeks on making your health a priority in the new year. Today, we’re up to an entire half-hour of cardio. My doctor has asked that I simply do 30 minutes of cardio per day, so this is the end of this challenge for me. If your doctor has suggested that you exercise more than 30 minutes per day, continue working toward that goal a bit at a time.
What I Did
I put my shoes on and climbed on my Body Runner stationary bike. Then I used my bike for 30 continuous minutes. I’ve begun keeping myself occupied with a book. I majored in English during college, but I haven’t read with any consistency in years, and I’m thrilled to be reading regularly again–and getting healthier at the same time! Win, win!
- See your doctor and confirm that you are healthy enough for exercise.
- Pick your cardio: running, biking, elliptical, swimming; even walking will do.
- Do cardio for 30 minutes. If you can’t do your chosen cardio for 30 minutes, do it as long as you are able and try to improve daily.
