We’re in the middle of week two of the Body After Baby challenge. Three days behinds us and only three more to go until the start of another new week!

‘ goal is to be the weight she was in high school. Me too, girl! Oh how I’d love to get that cheerleading skirt over my thigh’s….
Exercise is a big motivator and influence in our goals to lose weight, but it’s important to remember that exercising isn’t just about losing weight or looking a certain way. I know way too many times I have a mindset that I only exercise so I can lose weight, but it’s about so much more than that! The benefits of exercise go way beyond body appearance.
Exercising can improve your life in numerous ways. It’s proven to:
- Reduce stress
- Improve quality of sleep
- Increase mood
- Increases energy
- Strengthen your heart
- Increase life span
- Lower cholesterol
- Increase self esteem
- Reduce depression
- Enhances immune system
- Improve posture
- Strengthen your lungs
Need I go on? Keep those things in mind this week, and remember that your motivation behind Body After Baby doesn’t have to be just about losing weight.
