What's more important, eating healthy? Or Exercising? Well, I'm here to tell you BOTH ARE ESSENTIAL for a healthy body and weight loss. You can't do one with out the other. You need the vitamins, minerals, fats and proteins for your body to have the fuel that it needs to even have the energy to exercise. I never watched what I put in my mouth until I was forced to count every carb that I ate. It wasn't until then I realized all I had been doing my whole life was maintaining my weight through exercise. Which isn't a bad thing, but it wasn't the weight that I wanted to be at. No matter the weight you're at right now, if you are doing one without the other, you will only maintain the weight you have. But something that you shouldn't do is cut your calories and exercise, because you will then lose the nutrients your body has to have in able to get the energy. It was then I realize how important both are, when I started to lose the weight.
I know you're probabaly wondering how exercising has anything to do with Diabetes. Exercising not only keeps my blood sugars leveled, but I find the days I exercise, I don't need as much insulin. Which means the exact same for you, if your blood sugars are more leveled, your body is more balanced and your energy levels will be consistant.
I found a quick, easy work out that I have actually been able to see results from. For those days when I don't want to go outside, and I don't want to listen to or do a workout video. It's 20 mins long, and believe me, you will feel the burn and see the sweat! It's extremely effective, you just need a little living room space and I love it because YOU can choose the music you want! I've actually used this workout in my Aerobics class. I'll take you minute by minute.
