First Track Then Eat

Before eating use your Spark Tracker to find out the nutritional numbers and know the calories you are about to consume. If the numbers are too high then make a different, healthier choice.

Kitchen Workout!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!

If you cook wearing your work out clothes; you'll be less likely to keep on tasting; therefore saving calories. Sounds silly and it may just be. But it works. lol
Plus it also may remind you to squeeze your booty muscles! emoticon

ADL 's (Activity in Daily Living)

Small doses of activity, whether it's a stretch, getting up more while at work, and walking and not sit all day. A small strengthening exercise. Any type of activity in where you don't just sit! This is good for me due to Fibromylagia and am unable to do lengthy strenuous workouts.

Turbo cleaning

Yup. I just up and set a timer for 15 minutes and go to a "hot spot" and clean like crazy. Love it and my house looks so much better! emoticon

Sedentary Job? What I did that WORKED! Tip #4

4. I kept a half gallon of water at my desk & refilled it every morning. I wouldn't leave work until I'd finished the whole thing. It only took a few days before I was sipping a little during the day instead of waiting & drinking several glasses before leaving for home. As a result I had to make several trips to the bathroom during the work day. I started doing 10 "somethings" every time I'd visit the bathroom, 10 jumping jacks, wall push-up's, squats, etc. By the end of the day I'd done a lot,

Squeezing in Extra Movements to the day

I do several things to keep on moving throughout the day - I always walk to a co-workers desk to talk to them, about every 30-60 minutes I make sure I get up and move by taking a walk around the office floor then going up the stairs to the next floor-walking to the other side-take the stairs down and back to my desk, at lunch I always fit in walking outside regardless of the weather for a minimum of 20 minutes, and I power walk to the train station which is about .87 miles from my office.

Do NOT be efficient!

Somebody has already said this and probably better, but don't be efficient! Bring one bag of groceries at a time into your house from 'way down your driveway. How many steps can you rack up? emoticon

Making fitness more fun.

This will seem strange to most of you, but for me it's fun to garden, and I get a full workout: bending, lifting, walking all over the yard. There's great pleasure and satisfaction in this, and it only takes bout 5 minutes before I start getting "warm." The best part is I don't have to go anywhere except out the back door. emoticon

copy the kids!

I've found I get tons of fun exercise just mimicking my kids. When they dance, I dance. When they run, jump, throw balls, lean upside down against the wall, I do the same. The kids love it, I have fun, and I get a great deal of physical activity in.
