Walking on the Treadmill

Watching TV really makes the time pass. During the commercials I either run or walk much faster. This breaks up the exercise and I break a sweat too. emoticon

Washing Dishes and Stepping

When I worked and I took a bathroom break I would march in place to increase my steps. It also works if you are standing on your feet like a cashier, nurse, gardener, or other jobs. The steps add up quickly. Even you you march in place brushing your teeth for two minutes, dish washing, cooking you are getting tons of steps in. Just do it. MOVE!!!

Set an Alarm

I set an alarm on my phone so I move every hour for at least 5 minutes. I usually go up and down my stairs a few times to get the heart rate up. I also use the rest room on the opposite level of the house I am at. So if I am upstairs I go down stairs and vice versa! Every little movement helps!

Drink Orange Juice with that Oatmeal!

I was surprised to learn when eating fortified oatmeal , our bodies don't absorb all the IRON it has. So, in order to help our bodies retain the iron in oatmeal, we need to consume ORANGE JUICE along with the oatmeal . This information was found in the Martha Stewart Living ",May 2012 issue,p.140. Other "healthful pairings " of food ~peanut butter +banana{potassium/ less sodium},tomato+olive oil{lycopene/fat},whole grain cereal +milk {calcium/magnesium},chicken +carrots{zinc/VitaminA}.More

Squeeze it In

I squeeze in a little extra ST/exercise by doing one set every time I use the restroom at work. One day is Squats, the next is Wall Push-up, etc. I pick one exercise and do a set of 15 every time. Gets in a bit of exercise without taking too much time out of work.

Join the One Pound Club

Rather than becoming discouraged at needing to lose a large amount of weight, simply aim to lose one pound. We all can do that. When you do, celebrate your success then shoot for just one more pound. Every pound lost builds confidence and is an easier target to achieve quickly than losing 20 or 50 or 100 pounds.
