Home > Exercise Helps Maggie Stay at a Healthy Weight
Exercise plays a big role in helping Maggie Morris stay in good shape.
She got more active along with making healthier food choices.
regular routine includes 45 minutes of exercise three or four days a week. She
usually uses a recumbent bike or an indoor skier, which mimics the cross-country
skiing that she loves. And she hits the cross-country ski trails in the winter
and the hiking trails at other times of year.
She increased her
exercise slowly. She started on the bike for 10 minutes at a time. Then she
worked up to 15 and then 30 minutes.
She also tried something new-yoga.
"I find it's very calming," Morris says. She also likes the
stretching involved in yoga.
