My whole life I have grown up with a mom who worked out everyday and ate as healthy as she could. I never have really followed in her footsteps, which my mom didn't really like. But after reading chapter 12, I learned more about weight and exercise than I have ever learned before. I learned that aerobic exercise, like jogging or biking promotes the use of oxygen. Also that in order for exercise to actually be useful, the workout has to be longer than a time span of 30 minutes. Relating to exercise, I also learned about ways to keep a healthy diet and weight. I learned that exercise is needed regularly; daily intake of calories needs to be maintained, control portion size, and get help from your social network. By me reading chapter 12 and learning about exercise and different ways to stay healthy, I've actually taken the initiative to follow what i've learned at to start exercising regularly and eating right. I started jogging right by the river and I'm starting to enjoy it. Also I've been taking what I've learned about a healthy diet and I've been watching how many calories I eat a day and look at the portion size on my plate. If I weren't in Psychology, I probably wouldn't have learned all of this useful information and wouldn't be in a healthy and happy place like I am today.
