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.

I was sooooooooooo out of shape!

When I started actively trying to lose weight and get back in shape last year (right about the time I first joined SparkPeople), I weighed 251, was having sciatica attacks, and could barely move around. I was so out of shape, I had trouble going on an actual walk, so I bought a Wii, along with Wii Sports and Wii Fit Plus, and started with those. After two months, I was twenty pounds lighter and could then start a walking regimen. If you can't walk, Wii, but move! emoticon

Paper Clip Chain

I keep a chain of paper clips next to my computer monitor at work. Each paper clip represents one pound lost. They are always front and center to help keep me motivated. I remember to say "No thank you" to the office doughnuts.

Pay yourself to workout

If you can't afford or don't want to use a gym,
then workout at home.

However, pretend you are going to the gym, set a time, then "pay your entrance fee"., even if it is just a $1
Do this for a month, and then at the end of the month use the fees collected to reward yourself.

Use a Handheld Basket at the Grocery Store

Not only will it force you to watch how much you buy, the weight of the basket will give your arms a good workout while you shop!

Strength training while watching TV

I have several little items that come in handy during commercials, or even during slow parts of a show...Thighmaster, jog trampoline, free weights, stability ball, WALL and FLOOR. Working in a bit of strength training isn't too hard! emoticon

How many reps to do when strength training

My trainer taught me this secret. I do three sets per machine/strength training exercise. The first set I do 12 reps at the lower weight, 10 reps with the middle weight and 8 reps with the higher weight.

1/8 Cup = 2 Tbsp

Did you know that 1/8 cup equals 2 Tablespoons? Many Coffee Measures are the same amount. Check yours, and see if you can turn it into a multi-purpose tool!
This tidbit can save you some time when you're cooking.
