This is the summer of getting fit for me. In March, 2011 I ran the LA marathon and gained about 10 pounds during the training. It didn’t help that I was injured and stopped running for months. My muscle turned soft and I was tired from not exercising as much. I’ve lost a few pounds and I’m determined to get back to my pre marathon fitness level and then some.
I had already made that decision and changed my exercise habits and my diet when I was contacted by the Latina Mom Bloggers. I will once again be a Positivity Ambassador for the California Milk Processor Board. And what a great coincidence, the theme is Shape Up For Summer! The campaign is encouraging families to get on a bike, go for a walk, or do a little dance.
This is the theme song for the campaign (that is strangely catchy) and the dance.
When you’re done learning the steps, make sure to drink your milk. The steps are definitely a workout and milk, especially chocolate milk, can help your muscles recover.
1) Milk contains proteins like casein and whey that can help muscles rebuild after physical activity.
2) Milk also has minerals that are important in preventing muscle cramping.
3) Chocolate milk can be a smart alternative to sports drinks for cooling off after a good workout. – California Milk Processor’s Board
