weight bearing

I hurt my wrist so for now I can't do weights, so I have double my cardio for 60 minutes and have used my own body (e.g) push up against the wall

Rain, what rain?

I don't let rain keep me from my morning run! I have an old Disney poncho I keep in the mud room, and on those rainy mornings (like today!) I just throw it on and go anyway! It actually makes me want to run faster, so I don't get as wet!

Wii "Walk it Out" ~ A fun new way to get your walking in!

I recently purchased "Walk it Out" for Wii and what fun! You walk around Rhythm Island and earn chips with each step that you spend to decorate the island with trees, cars, streetlights, etc. Really cute and an hour of walking can go by in a snap!

Going to bed happy

Whenever I have a really tough day, I make sure I do a p.m. yoga DVD. The gentle exercises and meditation help me focus my energy and be at peace. It makes sleeping a lot easier and I feel, in general, happier. A simple thing to do that is highly effective.

Enjoy new path while walking the dog

Extra steps comes easy when you enjoy your walk. Take new routes, explore new neighborhoods. Hear the sounds, look at cars, relax and the steps just comes unnoticed and time passes by quickly. Enjoy it.

Can't stop looking at the time?

I'm just one of those people that can't stop looking at the time so what I do is brisk walk for 1 minute then slow down for 2-3 minutes then do it again until you finish your time.I find it easier to watch time goes by by a minute or two than keep thinking about the whole 30 - 35 minutes.
