Walking on the Water!

Well, I hope I have your attention now! My favorite activity is walking in the water as if I was trying to run or ride a bicycle. I have bought a couple of water noodles and I sit on one just like on a bike and peddle around in circles or back and forth. It really works your legs and arms as you stear yourself around the pool. The water provides quite the resistance and even though you might not feel too tired in the water, when you get out of the water, you can tell the difference!

Cookies Will Kill Me

I don't smoke because it causes cancer and that will kill me. I don't drink because it causes liver problems and car accidents and those will kill me. I don't drive without my seatbelt because that might kill me. When I crave a cookie or a shake, I tell myself that I "can't eat that because it will kill me." True or not, that one little phrase gives me just enough pause to stop, think and make a more healthy decision.

Leave the Car at home.

When going a reasonable distance with not a lot to bring to and from, I like to leave the car at home - walk, jog, or bike - it adds peace, joy (vitamin D), fresh air, scenic views otherwise missed, and a sense of accomplishment.

Put together a walk pack

Since I am now walking on a fairly regular basis, I decided to put a walk pack together. Just used a small, sport sling backpack. I hate keeping a lot of stuff in my pockets, and sometimes don't even have pockets. It's ready to go on a moments notice by the door.

swimsuit for motivation

Every time you don't feel like working out, go swimsuit window shopping online. When I finally see the swimsuit I'd like to buy, I'm always pumped to get my workout done and stick to clean eating.

Flaxseed

I try to put ground flaxseed in at least one food item each day; yogurt, meatloaf, casseroles, soups.

10 Min Videos Through the Wii

We have wireless internet at our house and a Wii system. I found out you can get into YOU Tube through the Wii internet channel and I did a few of Coach Nicole's 10 min videos on the big screen TV last night. FUN!

Push yourself!

One way I make sure I clock my exercise minutes is to plug in my goal time into the machine and tell myself I can get off whenever I want. That way there's no pressure, but I have my goal in sight. I usually end up staying on the whole time and I feel great about it in the end.
