Health and Wellness - A family affair from J David Silva, Sr. Fairfield CT
Last month my family made a commitment to improving our health
and well-being by deciding that we would, as a group, commit to
eating better and exercising at least 3 times per week. We all
understand the challenges with motivation and sticking to a plan of
healthy eating and exercising, so we decided to support each other
as a team.
Beginning last month we started a program of health and
wellness. We are committed to exercising a minimum of 3 times per
week, for 60 minutes each session. A session can include a bike
ride, an outdoor walk, or working out at a gym. We are tracking our
progress by each keeping a journal and encouraging each other to
stick to the plan. By doing this as a group, we can better motivate
and support one another. Every Saturday we plan on getting together
to review the previous week's results.
In addition to the exercising, we have also adopted a healthier
way of eating. We have incorporated eating more fruits and
vegetables daily. We have made a conscious effort to reduce the
amount of processed foods that we purchase and consume and are now
eating and drinking healthier options. We are also purchasing a
juice machine and a natural food dehydrator to make healthier
beverage and meal options.
I am looking forward to seeing the results of this challenging
but fun endeavor. Hopefully the results will be self-evident!
