Bathroom exercises

I use the trip to the restroom to get a set in on my exercises. I pick an exercise for the day (like squats) and do 10 every time I use the facility. If you get your water in for the day you get a lot of sets in. emoticon

Prepare To Succeed-Not to Fail

Have your workout clothes READY and in sight when you wake up! Never ask your body if you 'feel' like working out; Just get those clothes on that you packed the night before and say good bye to distractions that might talk you out of yur action plan for success! emoticon

Accountability

I go to a water aerobics class twice a week with four friends and that keeps me accountable! I also attend my husbands cardiac rehab program three times weekly which is a really good workout and that helps support him in his heart health and me in my weight loss! emoticon

Bathroom Breaks

Whenever I get up to use the potty (which is quite often!), I jog in place for 100 steps before and after, in addition to walking the long way. Those extra steps add up throughout the day. emoticon

Dancing like I was a kid again

As a teenager we all loved to dance. I used to feel free and expressive when I danced. Now that I'm a grandmother of 4 I have rediscovered that freedom of movement. I am able to keep me active by putting on the radio and dancing to the same songs I enjoyed as a teenager. It helps me to feel young again and keeps my muscles supple and my joints from stiffening up. I also have a lot of fun doing this.

Count backwards

When I do weight training, I count backwards (12 to 0) instead of forwards (1 to 12). This helps me trick my brain to thinking that I am completing an exercise sooner. Works for me!

Fitbit Flex

I tap on it a few times to put it in activity mode and it tracks my steps, distance, duration and calories. Plus, I love how it tracks all my steps, distance, calories, sleep hours etc. It great :)

Use Non "Exercise" Activities to Increase Movement

To keep moving, one doesn't always have to be "exercising". There are many non-exercise activities that also involve the body: making music on an instrument, singing, house-cleaning, playing with pets or kids...
