accomplished

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.

Lunge Walking

I lunge walk all the time wherever I'm at. It helps build my lean muscle groups increasing my metabolism and allowing me to burn more calories. I can really see a difference.

Make Exercise Fun

I have found my Wii to be a GREAT addition to my exercise options - especially on a bad weather day. It gets me up, gets me active and I have fun - time and calories fly!!!

Neighborhood Walking - Incorporate Storm Drains As Steps!

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!

" B R E A K I T UP "

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.

Extra steps

When I get a bus, I walk 10 minutes and also get off tw0 bustops before my stop. I don't drive so this ensures I get some extra steps in every day. emoticon

Chill your water before your workout! You'll...

...drink more than if it's room temperature!

I used to filter my water in the a.m. and then let it sit all day at room temp before going to the gym. I found that if I chilled the water in my office fridge during the day and then took it to the gym, I'd drink more of it chilled than not.

Don't Underestimate the Value of Strength Training

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.
