The Morning Workout and a Year Challenge

leave a comment »

I have been reading a book called Brain Rules, which I believe I mentioned in my previous blog.  I am only through the first chapter, however, I am not waiting to obtain benefits from activity and its affects on my brain and cognition.  The fitness aspects and disease prevention are areas that I have awareness.  Once upon a time I used to be a personal trainer.  The news that is causing me to move is the fact that activity has an affect on our brains and cognitive power.  It is possible to improve our memory skills by being active.  The book stated that it can decrease your likelihood to getting Alzheimer by as much as 60%.  Coming from a family that has suffered this awful disease, I am all in!

So here is Day 1 of a new year challenge.  I want to have at least 30 minutes a day of aerobic based activity.

This morning’s workout was a fast paced power walk with my little Pomeranian and my daughter.  My youngest decided she would run a lap with the dog and catch me on a back loop.  It extends her workout, lets the dog stretch her legs for a bit of time and all three of us get some exercise.  We also improve our brain power ability.

This mornings workout songs are below:
