I brought a pair of gym shoes to work to change into twice a day so I get away from my desk & walk 10 minutes each time. I'm finding it's good for my brain too!

Sunday is here and He has RISEN! My 10 minute bursts, were in church today, singing for all 3 services today. Praise and worship were on the agenda, as I sang back up for 4 different songs. I had so much fun, but after standing all that time, my feet HURT, but I DON'T even care, as I had so much fun today, in the house of the LORD!

Blessings!

Hoping this can count for yesterday - Saturday - my pedometer said I took 4260 steps - this was out and about for chores in the afternoon.

Did a little more later in the evening - was watching the show from a while back for Sinatra - who remembers him!! - what would have been his 100th B-D I started moving to the music for some songs that told my body to move...LOL it was a great show - I've saved it - going to watch and listen again...

That's way cool, Marie.

Well then I will count my 5 hours of practice for the Easter Cantata tomorrow, as I was swaying, a bit of stepping, and a lot of clapping and praising the Lord!

I can manage the towels, while I'm walking, but not the sheets. The towels are challenging enough. You're good, young lady!

My apologies for not posting this yesterday - Thursday - I I was out and about most of the day - hen I got home at 9:30pm I had laundry to fold - so while I was folding it I put the set the timer on my phone for 10 minutes and walked back and forth/side to side and kept folding laundry - picked up hand weights and walked around the house - the timer went off and I felt good...

Going to walk a little later....will post later...

Marie,

Yes, I'm STUPENDOUS! I had a class at the hospital, and once I had seen the doctor, it was too far for me to go home, as the VA Hospital is an hour from where I live, but I kept power walking up and down the halls, all around the hospital, until it was time for class. I got some good stepping in.

Blessings!

Isn't it such a good feeling that you get something done right away and get to count it as exercise? You don't have to go back and do it, as it was left undone. emoticon

Lady, when you do post other will want to know how you did it, including me, so do a post similar to this:

10 minutes - Walking in the living room while on the phone.
10 Minutes - Taking one piece of laundry at a time to the washer.

Sometimes our new sparkers come up with things that the old sparkers may have over looked, as sometimes we do get in a rut and to the same thing over and over.

But, whatever works for you, GO FOR IT!!!

Blessings!

I'm sorry if I sounded harsh in using the term Operative Word, as when I wasn't point out things, people got upset with me, because they didn't understand, so I started pointing them out, and it seems I've offended you and other new sparkers and I'm so very sorry.

Please don't drop out. All you have to do is move for 10 consecutive minutes. You could march in place if you're on a land line, and if you're on a cell, you could walk. I pick up one item at a time and take it to the correct room that it's suppose to be in, and even my laundry I do the same way, by putting one item at a time in the washer. My pair of socks, count as two, as I take one at a time, and I even do this when I'm putting them away. When I do dishes I march in place, at the sink. It's so easy to get your 10 minutes in and before you know it, you have a heck of a lot more than 10 minutes. We need all the sparkers that we can get to join a challenge and this is a GREAT one to start on, as it's only 10 minutes at a time.

Blessings!

In order for it to be considered a workout, you must have at least 10 consecutive minutes of MOVEMENT! I know that if my SPAT didn't pick up the movement that I didn't count it as a workout.

This is what the Team name is and I believe it says it all:

Official 10-Minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge

The operative word is EXERCISE.
