Thank you for responding to me. While I do not garden, I do have a large yard that needs to be kept up. So, I walk around, pull weeds, water, etc. I had forgotten all about walking at the mall.
I have heard that it opens early just for people to walk. I just might check this out.

Thanks again

I garden- pull weeds, plant, water and etc. Do you garden?
Do you like to plan any sports?
How about walk at the mall or local park?

Hello fellow Social Workers;
I have a hard time thinking of exercise and fun in the same sentence! However, because I sit at my work providing therapy or evaluations all day, I have gotta move more. I have just jumped in to exercise previously and quickly burned out and returned to sitting. Now, I am thinking about something simple like walking the family dog and maybe a basic yoga class. My plan is to build up to the gym or whatever seems appropriate. Any and all suggestions would be helpful.
Thank you.

It's all about the music. Listening to happy songs with quick beats keeps me moving on my walks when I feel like giving up.

I enjoy moving boxes when we do the food pantry. When the movement has a good purpose, it is enjoyable for me.

Happy November! I have to say, right now, exercise is not part of my routine. I have been a couch potato for months now. However, exercise is on my "to do list". Right now, I have no days off in November, so sleep is on my mind. I will get it together soon. No worries.

Ok team I saw this question and I thought it would be a great idea for a thread. It would interesting to know and maybe your fun way may help others. Please share in this thread. For me I have been going to the gym and although I have been going often I find it hard sometimes and dont want to go. Fortunately since i Live in florida on the days I dont want to go I usually go by and walk along the lake front. When I am in the gym I have put several audio books on my ipod usually juicy, exciting ones and I listen to them only when I work out . WHen they are good it just motivates me to quickly get back in the gym to listen to them. WHat about you?
