Enjoyed the beautiful day Sunday and finished what I had planned to do outside with work and exercise. Then came in and did more work then I had scheduled but it really felt good to open the house and let the breeze come in. I think that is what put me in the mood to really do a lot.
my granddaughter is learning to ride her new bike! she always likes to ride it when we go for walks! she starts out slow and then she says O.K NOW, LETS GO FAST! i break into a slow jog just to keep up with her! she loves riding for 30 minutes or so!
We have a 3 mile route in our neighborhood and every time we get to a storm/sewer drain, I use them to do steps. It breaks up the walking and gets my heart rate up. With 29 drains on the route and 20 steps on each leg, that's 1160 on top of a 3 mile walk! Pace yourself, I started at 5 steps each!
Don't have enough time throughout your day to exercise. Why not break it up into three 10-minute sessions? If you're working, use your breaks and lunch hour. At least you're getting the recommended minimum of 30 minutes a day.

I am guilty of this myself. The tendency is too look at the calories burned when completing a cardio session and feeling great about the accomplishment. But ST is critical in building muscle, preventing injury and in firming up all those jiggling problem areas- along with many other benefits.
