Jury Duty

When I was on jury duty, I used the lunch break to eat, then walk around the courthouse block 4 times. I also used the bathroom stall to do wall pushups, standing ab twists/air punches, squats, lunges, knee raises, and tricep dips (it helps to use the handicap bathroom if available, for more space and the bar for tricep dips.)

Walk an easy mile.

I walk my son to school and back in the afternoon and that's a total of 2 miles. This is any easy one for me to do as having with me motivates me to keep going to be a healthy mom for him and his little brother.

Go for a walk in sun light and fresh air.

Whenever I feel that I have problems out of control and find myself filled with negative thoughts I go for a walk in sun light and fresh air. Imagine that you are throwing the negative energy you have inside. Raise you head high to feel the sun light in your face and get fresh air in. Then run to break the stress. After that try to think and find solutions for your problems. Even if you didn't find a solution you will find yourself have the power to face it.

Don't stress over the amount, be happy you did it!

I honestly FEEL good when I exercise consistently. But that doesn't mean I do 20 miles per day, if I get in exercise 3x/week on a week I'm not feeling too great then to me that's a success. If I exercise only 5 or 10 minutes a day for a week, that's a success to me too. The point is, I EXERCISED.

Tracking with magnets

I try to get 8 5-minute walks in during my work day. I have 8 of those chunky magnets that you slap on your overhead metal cabinets. At the start of the day they're all on one cabinet door. As I complete a 5 minute walk I move them to the other door. Hopefully, by the end of the day they're all moved, and I got 40 minutes and two miles of walking done!

Walking the "long" way

If I have to go somewhere and the "long way" will only add a couple of minutes I walk that way. If the long way adds 2 minutes and I walk that way 5 times a week then I've already added 10 extra minutes in the week.

Stairs

I work on the eleventh floor. I typically walk downstairs to lower floors when I have to use the restroom, usually to floor 7 or 8, and I walk back up most of the time. I take the long route everwhere in the building I have to go. That's a great way to get in extra steps. People think I'm weird for doing so, but they don't appreciate healthy living the way I do. I love it.

Walk! Walk! Walk!

I walk.....EVERYWHERE!! I park further away at the grocery store, I walk the kiddos to the bus stop, I walk laps around the mall on chilly days, use the stairs instead of elevators/escalators, run errands on foot when it's possible.... where ever! Whenever & where ever it is possible, I will walk. Never say you don't have the time! EVERY STEP COUNTS! emoticon

One step at the time IS real!

I was so down that I couldn't build up some kind of exercise streak and then I decided to just walk, just walk. At first it took me a month to do 250 minutes and this month, I did 250 minutes in just 9 days! So, "one step at the time" IS the real thing. It does work. emoticon

On the Look Out for Fitness Opportunities

I'm always looking for ways to add more steps to my daily step count. I take the stairs instead of the elevator, I take the LONG way to any destination instead of the short cut . Every single step counts and they add up quickly!

Stress Buster

My go to stress buster is getting physically active. it doesn't have to be much--just a quiet 10 min walk, usually outside (fresh air is such a mood lifter!). emoticon

Walk & read

I love to read & make sure to take my Kindle everywhere with me. After I finish eating my lunch, I walk in place while I read my Kindle to get in some extra steps for the day.

Get going in the morning

I wake up early to walk, but I am slow to start in the morning!
The night before, I lay out my workout gear, shoes with socks in them, my pedometer,MP3 player, extra battery and I fill up 2 empty bottles with water and stick them in the fridge. When my alarm goes off, I don't have to search, I can do my warm up, get dressed and out the door I go!

Just walk or 10 minutes...

Seriously this works every time. If I just don't feel like hitting the GYM I tell myself, "I'm just going to walk or do 10 minutes". Toss on your work out clothes and shoes & go out the door. I hit the gym and I am always excited that I pull through and do an amazing workout/run. I am NEVER beating myself up for going only if I don't at all!

Airports are great for walking!

In striving for 10,000 steps a day, I walk the terminal instead of sitting at the gate and waiting for the plane to board.

Grocery shopping mini-workout

When I go grocery shopping, I bring my own bags. If I only have one or two bags, I leave the cart in the store and walk to my car (which I try to park far away from the door to try to sneak in a few extra steps). While I'm walking, I use the bags as weights and do a couple of reps of bicep curls.

Win Win Win

We have a single-stream recycling pick-up every two weeks - that means all cardboard, pasteboard, plastics (not bags, but bottles, milk jugs, etc), unbroken glass jars/bottles, aluminum & steel cans (we have a list!) can all be collected and put into the bin. Then it is weighed and we get "Recycle Bank Points" for it. WIN!

So...when I walk, I bring along bags and pick up recyclable items and carry them home. Sometimes it's extra "weight" (think strength training along with cardio, right?) - WIN!

Walk Kids to School

I started the year off walking my son to school. Time spent in the carpool drop-off lane is now spent walking with my son. Great conversations, teaching him healthy habits, sparing the air of carbon emissions and a bonus workout. I didn't realize I had grown afraid of the rain. Not anymore. Walking in it is an adventure through the eyes of a child, or an adult who is relearning how to really pay attention.

Reebok NuTones

These are, by far, the best sneakers I've ever worn. They're a little pricey, but they are definitely worth it! I didn't even have to break them in, like I've done for every other pair I've ever worn. They're so comfortable for walking shoes. It's amazing. I just had to share the good news with all of you!!!
