See it, do it.

Putting my extra bedding up this morning, I stepped up on a stool to put a blanket away. Stepping down, I decided that felt good, so why not do a few more. That got 30 reps of stair steps done in just minutes in the course of my day. Later, while waiting on eggs to cook, I did some squats. A lot of my best exercise comes when I see a short opportunity, and step up to it.

Wake Up and Do Exercises

I use YouTube to follow to specific exercisers: Leslie Sansone and various Pilates practices. I shower and return to be for 2 hrs. This is also the best sleep of the night.

Make a challenge of an outing

When I do errands or going to the store, park a little distance from where you want to go and walk. That helps my heart, my muscles tone up and helps my whole body. Sometimes I get short of breath but so, maybe I stop and make like I'm adjusting my shoe or something. I know people that park as close as they can even illegally and then pay to work out in a gym

Wall pushups

This is for who are unable to do actual pushups. These are almost as good as the conventional ones. When it gets too easy, I do one-arm wall pushups. These are really intense and I always feel the burn.

ADL 's (Activity in Daily Living)

Small doses of activity, whether it's a stretch, getting up more while at work, and walking and not sit all day. A small strengthening exercise. Any type of activity in where you don't just sit! This is good for me due to Fibromylagia and am unable to do lengthy strenuous workouts.

Butt Dancing

As I drive to and from work I dance to the music on the radio. It started with sucking in my stomach and stretching my back and has advanced to swaying, twisting and contracting my butt. The 45 minute drive doesn't seem so long, my back no longer hurts when I drive and I am wearing a smaller size pant.

Standing instead of sitting while working on my computer

I raised up my desk so my Computer Monitor is at eye level when standing. Fewer lower back tightness and I can move around more this way.

500 reps

Through out the day I randomly jog in place or do marching , I keep counting my steps until they reach 500 . It is an easy way to fit in a bit of calorie burning here and there !
