Push That Tush -- Be Creative

Thursday, January 24, 2013



I face the struggle to get myself motivated to exercise ... every day.
Years ago, when I was in my most successful weight loss mode
EXERCISE was the key that really got things going.
I was ultra strict with the food
(50 SHADES OF STEAMED GREEN VEGETABLES) and
I walked 2 miles before work
I walked 2 miles at lunch
I did aerobics after work.
the pounds just melted and people would caution me that
I was losing too fast...frankly, they didn't see everything I did to get there.

NOW, I eat a healthy balanced diet that has become my lifestyle,
But I continue to struggle with EXERCISE.

I have to PUSH myself to do 30 minutes, 20 minutes...5 minutes.
But it's all about DOING....
DO something
DO anything that gets me up and moving
DO something ... even sitting in a chair.
I can talk myself out of things ....OR I can stop talking and start DOING.



Yesterday, I tried taking a few 5 minute breaks during the day
to do some strength training/cardio intervals.
The weather is too cold outside. Time for getting cardio inside.
I have 2 Rubbermaid step stools that stand 9 inches off the floor ($10 each)
And I have my pair of 5 lb. dumbbells ($7 each).
So I would do my arm exercises as I went up and down the step stools,
and I kept changing my movements.
By the end of 5 minutes my heart was pumping and I was tired.
Equipment...Inexpensive ,
Movement ....spontaneous ,
Result....PRICELESS.

A little ingenuity goes a long way.
Today I'll try something different.
