The FIRM

Having a week of FIRM workouts - aerobic weight training. Some step work. Makes a nice change.

Most people know that exercise can help beat type 2 diabetes, but one type of fitness regimen might work best, a new study shows.
Specifically, workouts that combine aerobic and resistance training exercises appear better at controlling blood sugar than either type of activity alone, researchers say.

Good article you linked to, Leonie! I notice when I don't exercise, I crave sugar/starchy carbs.
Last month I started exercising again since having a baby (in February!). My go-to workout to get back into exercising is The Firm's Hare (fast&light) with Tracey Long. After a couple of Hare workouts, I progressed to Volume Six - my all time favorite! I slacked off again for the past two weeks, so it's back to the Hare again today. Visiting your site has motivated me ;-)
Blessings to you and your dear ones, kristina

I'm sorry I peek at the blog through my sidebar, but we moved this summer and I've barely gotten online. It's very encouraging to me to see you posting here, thought. Thanks, Leonie. :)
