Sneaking in a few extras

When I am waiting to heat something in the microwave or waiting for a printout at work, I will get in a set or two of simple strength exercises: wall push ups, squats, lunges, etc.

EVERY MINUTE COUNTS!!

I'm learning that ALL activity is/can be exercise! You don't just have to go to the gym for 90 minutes to get fit! I play my Wii, take short walks at lunch, whip out the stretch band for a quick toning during commercials. This makes it fun and easy. 5, 10, or 90 minutes, it still counts!!

Find ways to take more steps

I park in the farthest parking spot from the building in which I work; use a restroom on a different floor; take the stairs instead of the elevator; take a longer way to get the copy machine. Little things, but when you sit all day every extra step counts!

No Time for Fitness ?!?

I think especially for moms. We spend so much of our lives looking after others, it's hard to make ourselves any kind of a priority. The truth is, we can't care for anyone else well if we fail to care for ourselves. We all know the downfalls of not being healthy - obesity, heart disease, diabetes, sleep issues, low energy, etc. The problem is we don't always know what to do about it or even have time to think about it!

Making Exercise Fun

I am just not one of those people who is ever going to enjoy going to the gym and working out on a regular basis. Therefore, I try to incorporate exercise through fun activities, such as hiking, biking, canoeing, etc. or useful activities, such as housework & yardwork. It just makes my life much more enjoyable :)

Microwave and exercise

Sometimes when I put something into the microwave I use the time before it is done to do a short burst of exercise. Jumping jacks, steping up and down on the stairs, kitchen counter push-ups.....whatever. When the bell rings the food is done and I have fit a little more exercise into my day!

Make it apart of your everyday life.

I am learning to make exercise a normal part of my day, the same as taking a bath, brushing my teeth, and eating dinner. It shouldn't be something that you pencil into your day, just so you can have the option to erase it later.

Keep Moving!

I like to keep moving. I put some running music on my computer and keep going! If I'm sitting, I'm doing chair exercises, but I don't sit for long and will end up marching in place to the beat of the music! It must be working as I'm down over 30 pounds since July 20th! emoticon
