California and different ways to exercise

Living in California since 1976, I have realized it is a health-conscious state. In the 1980s after I had my older son, I became interested in doing Jazzercise, which was like a dance exercise to popular music. I went about 5 times a week and felt healthy and fit. I did this for over 10 years until going to the gym became more popular. As they became popular, you would have to wait for certain machines, and many women were not comfortable in a co-ed exercise environment, so Curves became a fitness studio option over 25 years ago.

It is recommended to do 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise weekly, like walking, and 75 minutes vigorous aerobic exercise, like running to be in a healthy state. You can also combine moderate and vigorous.

I gained weight when going through menopause, and became pre-diabetic. I started walking about a mile every day and changed my eating habits and lifestyle. My blood pressure went back to normal. I became a vegetarian, no longer ate fast food or sweets. I lost 28 pounds and have been able to maintain my weight and fit into my normal size again! Hooray!

  1. Great article! It’s not always easy to keep our bodies moving, but it is so important! Congratulations on your healthy weight loss success! Cutting out sweets and processed foods goes a long way to keep you healthy, and it probably helped balance your hormones post menopause as well.

    1. Thank you Amber! What I have noticed is that people lose weight, but then go back to their old habits, and gain it all back. You have to look at it as a lifestyle change and become disciplined and learn to eat healthier and do regular exercise, or as you get older you can set yourself up for serious health issues.

  2. I do a fair bit of walking, mostly walking my son to and from school. I used to do Zumba and Tae-bo quite often but haven’t in awhile. I should get back into doing them.
