Scheduling Exercise

Man running-EKGDiabetes management includes diet, medicine and/or exercise. Let’s talk about the latter. Did you know exercise is beneficial in lowering blood sugar? We can have the best intentions to manage our health through diet and exercise but can fall short in reaching our goals. We have to give ourselves credit- changing habits is difficult, very difficult.

For many of us, we’ve had our eating habits and exercise regimens (or lack thereof) for decades. We can’t expect change overnight.

It is agreed by health experts that Americans need at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise or 75 minutes per week of vigorous exercise. That is 30 minutes per day at least five times per week.

It sounds great on paper but how do we get to this goal? Think about where you are and then think about where you want to be. Setting small attainable goals each week have been proven to be effective in reaching our “big picture” goal.

Make a list of activities you enjoy. If you enjoy exercising, you will make it a priority. If you don’t, it is easy to make excuses to skip today... this week… this month.

If you are sedentary, a goal of walking 10 minutes Monday, Wednesday, Friday this week is a great place to start. Physically writing exercise on a calendar or schedule can help making it a priority. Once you have it finished, you can cross it off your list for the day. Exercising has numerous health benefits which can help keep motivation high and for it to become habitual.

Exhort on the off chance that you don't need to go someplace when it is awful outside than simply remain at home.

Doing exercise on a regular basis is what makes it worth doing. Doing it on and off periodically is just a waste of time.
