Fitness really does fit well with nutrition and stress coping skills, but I am one of those people that eat fairly well (have my cheat moments) and yet fitness is a challenge. When I was younger, I was very active and no problems, when I was hurt a couple of years ago I ended up laying around and getting lazy. The problem was, I thought I liked it. Yes really, it seemed to be fun laying around "relaxing" but Iwas decieved and became obese too fast. I am one of those people that exercise works for faster than others and I tend to take it for granted. The unfortunate side is I also gain weight really fast if I am not active. So now I am on a routine of going to the gym regularly and incproprating fitness in my life. It is challenging, but if there is no life including fitness, then there is a reduction in the quality of my life.
1. Picking up plaundry - toe touches
2. If I climb stairs - go down and up one more time
3. Standing or stove - calf raises or stand on tip toes.
4. Watchnig tv - hand weights for military press
5. Stop light - undulations to music
6. Shopping - do a lap of walking around the parking lot
7. Cleaning tub - planks off the side
8. Computer work - set a timer for 15 to 30 minutes and walk for 1 to 5
1. Keep a stretch band in your purse
2. Keep dumbells in the backseaat of the car, it may look cluttered but you will notice them
3. Small cooler with water bottles and fruit for a day out
4. Wrist weights
5. Even a lap around a covenient stores is a minute or two of exercise
