Dr. Oz's Seven-Minute Workout

I happen to be a huge fan of Dr. Oz! If you're anything like me, I have a hard time fitting in exercise every day. We all lead very busy lifestyles. In this video, Dr. Oz gives his suggestions about which exercises to include in a 7-minute workout first thing in the morning to jump start our day.

I was encouraged to learn I don't have to do my hour routine all at once. Spending small amounts of time a 3-4 times a day will give me the same benefits. I also find that if I spend a few minutes exercising instead of giving in to a snack craving (I promise myself I can have my snack after I've gotten up and moved a little) I feel so much better and more often than not, my craving goes away as well... a double blessing for me :)

Let's encourage one another... especially during these winter months when it's easier to sit around the fire eating bon bons than it is to lace up the aerobic shoe and get moving.

Remember, we're all muddling through this "mess" we call life together...
