Weekly challenge for 7/29-8/4/07:
"Add 15 minutes of activity to your daily routine -whether it's walking, playing with the grandkids, swimming, or another activity that you enjoy.
"When given the choice between walking or driving, choose walking -- going up the stairs instead of the elevator, or parking further away from the store.
"Each weekend day, spend an hour doing something physically active -- gardening, hiking, playing a sport, taking a fitness class.
Write down your goal (maybe in your blog) and give yourself a timeframe -- say, one month -- to accomplish that goal. The timeframe is very important -- without it, you may lose momentum, and you won't know whether you've been successful."
Add 15 minute daily walk to my 3x/week 30 minute walks; use exercise bike as backup.
Take stairs instead of stair chair to take meals upstairs to my mother.
Starting today, spend an hour doing outdoor work, today weeding the garden.
Find out about swimming exercise programs in the area.
