Sometimes little things are the best things. I am making more trips to the kitchen to get water, and cooking more often. I find that when I do the cooking, I always put vegetables in the meals whereas when someone else does I'm less likely to get my veggies in. These are 2 little things. Btw, if you get a pedometer and just wear it around you might find you take more steps than you think, or it might encourage you to get those few extra steps by marching around the house. Oh and last night I got my calf raises in while at the bathroom sink and got some of my dumbell exercises in while watching bones with Patch. Amazing how you can just fit a little exercise in here and there!

LOL I didn't notice which topic I was posting in. Many of my comments were meant for people in the Success By Samhain Challenge

I overcame my spiritual obesity, now for the physical!

If you walk to the store, you can count it if your total walking is over 30 minutes of continuous walking. However, if you buy things, you will be carrying them home -- count it as strength work. I have a 6% grade for 3/4 mile from the store to home (uphill coming home). Even pushing a shopping cart, I am doing at least 20 minutes of moving 60 pounds of stuff up a mountain. That counts.

Hugs,
Moss

I know, I know. But I did walk yesterday! It's just that I WANT to count the 14 stairs I take upstairs at least 7 times a day. And there's no where to put them in the EXERCISE place. AND ... I want to count the other things too, like walking further to a store because I parked over two aisles further than I needed to. OKAY, I'm not getting any points. But I WANT CREDIT! :-) It's a postal thing me thinks. Okay. I'm done now. emoticon And if no one else EVER posts their little extra things they do here, okay, I'll quit doing so too ... eventually.

They say that it all starts with small steps. So I would think that all those small steps would add up to big ones eventually.

I'm tired of always trying to DO MORE MORE MORE. I want a place to record the LITTLE THINGS I DO for exercise. Figured others here might join in.

Today I took the stairs 7X! Yeah for me. (We won't talk about how they are in my home and I need to take them to get upstairs anyway. I'm COUNTING 'EM!)

Go ahead. Have fun. Record something LITTLE for a change. That way it won't take long either.
