Guest Blog: Healthy Cookie

Just do it!

As you know, I live a healthy lifestyle and want everyone else to take a step in that direction. It seems the main reason people don't exercise is the same excuse: Time. You may tell yourself you don't have time to work out, but adjust that attitude and make time for it. Whether it means waking up 30 minutes earlier, skipping some couch time to go on a walk or a jog, or working out during your favorite TV show, there's most certainly time to do it.

Below is a quick 10-minute workout to blast away 100 calories. Do each for one minute:

Jumping jacks
Running in place
Jumping squats
Marching in place
Walking lunges
Planking
Sit ups
Crunches to the left side
Crunches to the right side
Wall sitting

Exercising reduces your risk of heart attack, increases blood circulation, strengthens your muscles, and has many more benefits. Best part, however, is that it makes you feel better!

So I challenge you to make time to work out today.
