Fall Fitness

This month offers opportunities for being active in the outdoors without it being too hot or too cold.  It is a fantastic time of year for  enjoying the scenery while walking, hiking or biking along the trails at the parks or conservation areas or just through your neighborhood.  Purposeful exercise can be incorporated into some of the seasonal activities this time of year, either for cardiovascular , strength or both.   You can get your heart rate up with yard work, lawn care, raking, gardening or cleaning house in preparation for holiday guests!

Locally there are still ample opportunities for healthy, fresh produce.  Apples, pumpkins and various types of squash for example can be incorporated into meal planning.  During the next few months the diet typically tends to shift toward richer, denser foods, and less of the lighter, cooler water dense foods, as the availability changes.  The typical “Holiday Indulger” will gain weight during this time.  If you are trying to lose or maintain  weight then  – beware!  Perhaps after the traditional Thanksgiving Dinner, you can start a family Turkey Trot, Holiday Hike or whatever you come up with.  the anticipation of moving after your meal may help from having the extras!

Planning Early start

The key to balancing a healthy life is scheduling. Like most things in our lives, the best way to ensure exercise is to schedule it in each week. Put it in your calendar at the beginning of each week and choose your workout of choice.The best time to squeeze in a workout, is before the day begins. With kids who rise early, it is best to do your exercise before you get busy.

Get your children involved

If you can’t get away from the kids to work out in peace, then consider including them. Babies can be used as the perfect weight to squat with. You can explore your local parks in the process. Strap your baby to your back and climb the stairs, when at home. Run with your toddler in the pram. If you enjoy swimming, have your toddler hold on to your shoulders while you breast stroke through laps.

Kid friendly gyms

Using a local gym, or a personal trainer who can accommodate your needs, and maybe include the kids in your program, makes a huge difference in your exercise routine. Some gyms now offer indoor creche for kids.

Millet Cereal

Millets are interesting. It’s kind of hard to describe the way it tastes as well. Depending on what you serve it with, it takes a lot of its flavor on that. I would say that the texture is a cross between couscous and the flavour of quinoa, with a tad bit more nuttiness to it. In this post, we’ll be talking about millet and having it as a hot breakfast cereal!
