(Jump for as long as possible and don’t get out until you reach your birthday month)


You need energy to workout! When you're a kid, jumping rope is a playground or backyard pastime, and then you hit your 20s and older — and jumping rope burns and hurts. You suddenly understand why boxers jump rope, fast and really well, as part of their training. Get out your timer (cellphone, old-school egg timer, Timex Ironman, etc…) and dare yourself to jump rope for TEN MINUTES. If you can do it -- awesome! Do it again tomorrow. If you make it to five minutes, good job! To three minutes, good job! Repeat tomorrow. If you can figure out how many calories you've burned, keep that amount in mind when you dip into the free snacks at work or while you are finally relaxing at home.


When you are overweight or out of shape, you usually are not feeling high energy. In fact, you feel the opposite, tired and low energy. Vitamin B12 helps the body convert fat and protein into energy. This is how Vitamin B12 contributes to weight loss, by metabolizing all the protein and fat in your diet. Vitamin B12 is also known to block sulfite-induced asthma, and low Vitamin B12 levels might be linked to chronic, unexplained coughs. If you have low Vitamin B12 levels, your energy will be low, you will be fatigued, and you won’t be able to effectively metabolize what you are eating.


Vitamin B12 slows down weight gain because people with sufficient or high levels of Vitamin B12 in their bodies tend to have more energy. Increased energy not only helps you with your everyday activities, but propels you to exercise! Whether it is jumping rope, walking, running, bike riding, yoga, Zumba or indoor rock climbing  — or all of the above. Let Got Vitamin B12 move you! Are you ready for this?
