extra workouts do help. Any way you can fit extra in is helping. I walk to town to pay bills. I take the stairs when I can. I have been known to put on music and dance around the house. I do this on top of my workouts. It all adds up........

I keep a set of hand weights in every room so wherever my baby falls asleep or is content playing by himself I can do a quick set of something.

I make the beds daily, put away dishes from the dishwasher, do squats while fixing my hair, do a truck load of laundry, hand them up go up and down stairs multiple trips daily, take out recycables, trash, go to my mailbox and pet my dogs every c hance I get. I work out with my patients in my job as a therapist. It may not sound like much but it helps.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

I take just one pile of laundry at a time up and down the stairs instead of trying to take it all at once. I also bring in just one or two bags of groceries at a time so that I have to make extra trips back and forth. And I park far away from the stores, and always return my cart. I also run around with my dogs- they have much more energy than I do! :-)

You are doing a great job squeezing in more activity! That is definitely a habit of healthy people!

I workout at the gym for 60 minutes per day (classes or training). However I add extra movement by cooking all meals. I walk to the grocery store or farmer's market to get produce 2 or 3 times a week. I keep my pantry on either side of my car in the garage area. I go up and down steps with groceries and laundry. I am decluttering my house and do 15 minutes each day on that task. That often includes a walk to Goodwill with items (use a shopping cart to move the items).

I am on my way to better health!
