Would someone please tell me what "exercise regularly" really means?

Would someone please tell me what "exercise regularly" really means?

We’ve heard it before and continue to hear from almost everyone, from Mom right up to the Surgeon General, “exercise regularly”! Help! Someone please de-code that for me. Evidence suggests that a single 30-minute brisk walk can help burn fat and lower blood sugars (if you have diabetes) for up to 72 hours. Ok I get that, but how much, how often, what else can I do?

The American Diabetes Association and the American College of Sports Medicine recently issued a joint statement recommending a minimum of 150 minutes (2.5 hours) per week to prevent diabetes, heart disease, and help lower blood pressure and lose weight.

So put on a pair of good athletic shoes and practice/choose your personal favorite movement: Zumba, hiking, biking, brisk walking etc. Make sure you don’t hang up those shoes for more that two days between workouts. It is also important to add resistance exercise such as yoga, Pilates and other forms of exercise that help to tone muscles at least 2 times a week.

Tell me what has been working for you; do you also have a love/hate relationship with exercise? Love the feeling of well-being after a workout but hate to get started? I know that feeling very well. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions. Allow me to demystify diabetes/pre-diabetes/meal planning for you!
