  • Shopping workout- walk all aisles horizontally and vertically. Cannot look until I have completed a circuit.
  • I sneak in 10 minutes of jogging on my front porch a few times a day. It gives me a break from what I am doing and a chance to get outdoors.
  • I love car dancing and it really entertains others at traffic lights. There expressions and reactions give me a good belly laugh which works the abs.
  • While in car, I hold my abs in for a few seconds over and over again. It has become a habit. I new do it without thinking whenever I am in car.
  • Cleaning this particular (rental) house is a real challenge and takes hard work - start with hard water stains and go forward. Lots of scrubbing that the "scrubbing bubbles" need help with! It's also a "leaky" house but as a rental leak it will - and with drought that means dust, so much dust. To keep it reasonably clean you have to put in 1-2 hours a day most days.
  • car dancing...? Don't think so, but there are plenty of other great options in this article!
  • I do an intense 30 minute workout each day with one of the videos, but I also push myself when doing things outdoors and in the house to get the most exercise I can out of simple tasks. It's fun and I usually burn a lot more calories that way. I find I can generally meet my nutritional goals, but depending upon how much I work out I sometimes have to add extra meals because of the calories I burn.
  • When in the car I have a tape, (yes) that is Pilates sitting down while driving. It is mostly deep breathing, but I LOVE it! Helps tone the core!

    Why are all exercises assumed that you are working from a desk and have an hour for lunch, I work outside and am lucky to get a 1/2 hour for lunch.
  • There are definitely some good ideas here. However if I tuck my chin down towards the tag in my shirt I'll have to spin my head around so I'm facing backwards. This would probably be a poor choice when driving. ;)
  • I don't "save" trips up and down the stairs from the kitchen to the downstairs entrance, I make any trips necessary, rather than save up the recycling or what ever it is, composting, I just make the trip, knowing that if I don't use it I will lose it!!!

    A good workout can be a great thing for both body and soul. I recommend something I liked a lot. It gives me the opportunity to do workouts at home.
    It is a workout system developed by Cosmopolitan.

    I agree with the comment that car dancing could be dangerous and distracting, but one could do butt squeezes to tone that area. Also, while sitting at a light, press your hands against the steering wheel from each side until the light changes.
    I can't see how a person could get any work done at home if they put the laundry away one piece at a time!
  • A personal thanks to those who choose the articles to share with your readers. Thank you for repeating the articles to us. I know you have shared this one before but it is just as valuable now as it was the first time I read it. They are great reminders, they still motive and some points are remembered that I completely forgot. The plus is that you now let us "repeaters" earn points when we read it again. Because of you, I have stuck with becoming healthy for a long time and I am close to my goal. Feel soooo much better both mentally and physically.
  • The suggestion regarding shopping can attract the negative attention of store security, as they are often times trained to look for anything out of the ordinary, but their fears are easy to dismiss once they discover your power walking for exercise while shopping
