I'm very busy and don't get much down time so usually all I want to do is relax and enjoy a tv show then I have an hour to spare. I recently bought a portable step machine and I now use it during my tv time. I can veg and tone my body at the same time
The ONLY thing I've lost during my healthy life style change, is T.V. time. I cannot believe the hours upon hours I wasted. Nothing is more rewarding to me, after a long day of work, than going for a long run.
Need help beginning a running program? Let me know, I'm overweight & partially disabled and I CAN RUN 13 miles....you can too.
A group of muscles hardly ever addressed are your hands & forearms. Strong hands help carry suitcases & boxes & also help you open those pesky jars the machines have screwed on too tight. I started using a tennis ball & squeezed it during TV time, 5 minutes for each hand. The next day I was amazed how the muscles in my hands & forearms ached, so I skipped a couple of days & did the exercise for a 2nd time. I was amazed how quick my hands and forearms grew stronger. In 6 weeks I increased the
time to 10 minutes. 4 weeks later I was doing 15 minutes & then I was doing 20 minutes. I've switched to a handball (more difficult to squeeze) & I'm up to 15 minutes. 1 benefit is now I'm able to open any jar my DW hands me & my sons are amazed how hard it is to beat a 65 y/o man arm wrestling.
