After much soul searching (yeah right about 10 minutes) I decided that there was mainly one reason for my routine take a hiatus. I WAS BORED! Yup I got bored with my routine. Imagine that? But you know what, getting bored with your daily exercise regime can get boring.
The exercise and fitness guru's all say that it is important to change your routine, at least every three months. You want to make sure you inevitably meet the goals you have set for yourself when it comes to exercising but you don't have to do the same thing every time. Switch it up a bit, or alot. There are plenty of ways to stay in shape and stay interested and engaged in what you are doing at the same time.
For those of you who are looking for something other than what you might normally do here are some suggestions (yes, I am doing them!)
- Zumba - yes the Zumba craze has taken the country by storm. You know why? Its FUN. It usually involves 20 or more Women gathered together. The moves are Latin inspired and aer exhilarating. Zumba is healthy, rewarding and beneficial. You can tone your muscles through a different type of resistance cardio-vascular training and at the same time burn fat and calories.

- Line Dancing - now don't laugh! The American Heart Association recommends line dancing. It is cardio-vascular, gets you moving and it is a lot of fun.
