Now that Christmas is looming right around the corner, why not do a little mini clean up in the storage area of where you keep all your decorations?
Doing clean up/organizing is a nice way to burn a few calories and not only does it do that, but you will have something good to show for it afterwards...like a nice clean organized room. emoticon

Here is another way to work in exercise on a budget...With the holidays looming at our doorstep, there will be many of you doing housework to get ready for all the guests.
Why not incorporate a few extra deep knee bends, jumping jacks, etc., in while doing your housework.
Did you know that based on a 150 lb person, 30 minutes of the following will burn approx...
Cleaning Windows...153 Calories
Washing Dishes...76 Calories
Laundry...72 Calories
Raking Leaves...171 Calories
Scrubbing Floors...189 Calories
These are just to name a few. Maybe turn on the radio to a good station and "Dance" from one room to another...from one chore to another. Make it fun and just move, move, move and before you know it, the scale will move for you too...in the direction you want it to go.

Well..Today I added another Spark Team to my list and that was the Spark 10 minute Challenge Team.
Here the challenge is to workout for at least 10 minutes a day. I started today with a nice walk and what was supposed to last 10 minutes, turned into 30 minutes. The day was too nice to turn around early and so I kept going and going.
(Kind of sounds like the energizer bunny, doesn't it?) ha ha.
So...did anybody do anything interesting workout wise today? emoticon

This is the time of year when things cool down and the rains start to come. It is also a time where the smell of the air changes and there is a crispness about it and sometimes even a muskiness from all the leaves. It is also a time where the city parks are not as busy as they once were in the summer time. Why not take advantage of that and go for a walk on a park trail. Enjoy the smells, sounds and beautiful colors of this time of year. It's free and it will pay you back ten fold! emoticon

Yesterday I chopped/split and stacked wood for 1 1/2 hours. (That's cardio and strength training) My muscles sure feel it today! emoticon

OK...I will begin.
I went for a "Walk" on the beach last night with hubby. But not only did we walk, we took a flight of stairs down to the beach and back up again. Seventy five steps in all!
(That would count as a "Stair Stepper" or "Thigh Master" Routine. ha ha. emoticon
The best thing was we also got to watch the sun set as a reward!

Not everyone can afford to go to a gym or lives conveniently close to one.
By using our imagination, there are a number of ways to get our workouts in without even going to one.
The challenge here is to check in daily or whenever you workout and share your creative ideas of what you did.
For example: Walked, climbed stairs and counted the steps, used playground equipment while watching kids, etc. Let's see how many wonderful ideas you all come up with. Even if you already see your idea posted, post it again. Let's see what everyone is doing and how often they are doing it! Let's do it team! emoticon
