Getting In Your Steps

To help get in my steps when I'm at work I take the stairs to use the restroom on the floor above, I walk for 5 minutes of my 15 minute break and 10 minutes of my lunch break. The steps really add up quickly.

Laundry with THE SPARK

Ever since I purchased my Spark Activity Tracker I find ways to take more steps. My favorite is doing laundry. When I pull things out of the wash to hang dry I walk them up stairs out of the laundry room one at a time. Adds several trips up the stairs!

Walking instead of driving someplace I need to go

I enjoy adding the extra steps if I can walk with a purpose, like walking to the store or library instead of driving.

Exercising while I watch television or listen to my favorite music

I like to do 100 squats a day and I like to work in some burpees too. It's also a good time to jump rope.

When I couldn't sleep I got on Spark and started getting points.

Even though I did eat, I made healthy choices and logged my points. I also did a short exercise video which helped me get back to sleep. This is a big improvement for me over the past binging habit. I have included the calories from last night in today's count so feel I've progressed instead of giving up as I always did in the past. Today is a new day!

Stationary Bike Meditation

As I'm peddling moderately, I breathe in to a count of 4, hold my breath for a count of 2, then breathe out for a count of 4. Paying close attention to my breathing really makes time fly. emoticon

Yogi Marlon DVDs

I use these DVDs to do very deep stretching rather than strengthening. You hold stretches longer and she takes you through the breathing.

fruit and vegetable

I like to eat apples and celery with peanut butter. They are a quick snack and the peanut butter helps you stay full longer.

Working Out Stress

When feeling overwhelmed by stress, I go bowling and laugh at how bad I am at it. Bowling allows me to release pent-up aggression. If there is no lane available at the bowling alley, it's time to shake out my duster outside. Negative energy, be gone!
