Packing Exercise into a BUSY Day!

When my schedule gets so packed that I can't stop for a minute, I find that I can get in a good twenty to thirty minutes of fitness while dinner is cooking. Coarsely chop some potatoes and assorted veggies and pop in the oven to roast for a nutritious tasty meal when you're finished working out.

Walk when you can

I try to burn extra calories every chance I can get. If i need to go to the bank or post office I'll walk instead of driving. Also try parking futher away when I shop. It saves the car from getting dinged and adds some more activity to my day!

Vegetarian for a Day

My husband and I have made it a point to eat vegetarian for at least one day each week (Tuesdays at our house). We used to think about eating vegetarian more often for the health benefits, but this gives us a way to remember to do it.

Work for a treat

If I want to eat when I am watching tv or want a special treat still within my calorie range or close to being out of it, I make myself do 25 crunches before I have it. That way I don't feel so bad about my treats.
