Slique Fitness Tip: Cardio

Apr 25th, 2012 | Category: Young Living Product Blog

A successful weight management program consists of two main pieces; Nutrition and Exercise. The Slique Kit tackles the nutrition side, now it is time to look at exercise. This week, we will be focusing on one of the essential activities for healthy weight management: Cardio. Choose one of the following exercises to do each day to enhance your transformation.

•    Walk for 30 minutes per day
•    Run for 30 minutes per day
•    Bike for 30 minutes per day

Change it up! By using a variety of cardio exercises we avoid the monotony we may feel when exercising. Wherever possible, avoid treadmills and stationary bikes. Get out into the world, use different routes for a change in scenery, and enjoy your exercise routine!

In addition to exercise, eating healthy is crucial to successful weight management. The recipe below provides a light, healthy alternative to unhealthy snacks that will support your Slique transformation and on the path to changing your diet for the better!
