Making Time For Exercise


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I spend a lot of time on the computer, I put my total gym and other weights near by. I "make" myself do one exercise for only 4 minutes when I am waiting to download etc. Today I managed to do that at least 6 times= 24 mins of exercise! emoticon

    Good idea. Sometimes, I will set my laptop on my kitchen counter and stand at it for hours. Then, I can do calf raises, etc while I am standing there.
