I love these ideas for sneaking in more exercise. I used to do the bathroom thing...how did I ever forget about it? I'm implementing some of these things today!

When we walk in the park, by the bay, or around the ferry landing, there are low metal bars I can use for a set of a dozen body weight rows. SO much easier than using the edge of the dining table!

When I take the pup out to the front yard to do her business, I stretch my legs while she has her snuffle around the grass. When I brush my teeth with my Sonicare at night, I lie down on my foam roller to get a heart-opening stretch in. When I lie down for our twenty minute meditation each night, I arrange my legs and pelvis for a deep hip stretch. I try to take a deep, slow breath, improve my posture, and lower my shoulders every time I remember to throughout the day. I am determined to get more stretching, yoga, massage, and stress relief into my life, and these are some of the ways I sneak them in.

Deb, I admire you for not letting the opinion of your customers keep you from doing something good for yourself.

Good idea, Kitty.

Seems like I'm always standing in front of the stove waiting for water to boil or onions to soften, and sometimes I do squats to pass the time, but I hadn't thought of making use of bathroom breaks this way. It's the perfect place for wall or counter pushups!

Kitty, as in your fashion - when I am at work, I am constantlygoing from sitting to getting up to press, back down to sew, up again and over to the cutting table, etc. So when I sit in my chair, I don't sit all the way down, then get back up and then sit, all these squats add up! Of course my customers think I have lost my mind, and can't decide what it is I am doing!

Thought I would share this. For the last 6 or 7 months every time I use the restroom I crank out a quick set of ST exercises. I alternate between squats and wall push-ups. I'm up to 100 every day! So even is I don't get any other ST in, I got something done.
