A big part of being healthy is being fit. This week’s can-do challenges will get you movin’ and groovin’! Get these activities on your calendar, and use a reminder system (like a cell phone alarm reminder) so you don’t forget. This 5-day sample program is based on requirements by the Centers for Disease Control. In a nutshell, an adult should get 2.5 hours or 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity 5 days a week, with an additional 2 days of strength training. As always, check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise program.

1) Day 1: Walk Throughout your day, take THREE brisk, 10 minute walks. Grab a colleague or co-worker, or your favorite tunes, to go with you to make the time go faster.

2) Day 2: Walk and Strength Same as yesterday, go for THREE 10 minute brisk walks…but also, add three strength training exercises. If you’re not sure how to perform the exercises, check out the links provided.

this didn't open right for me, but I think it was because of the "ghostery" I run.
Repeat these exercises 3 times each.

3) Day 3: Try something new Try out water aerobics or some other instructor-led class. Ask your friends and co-workers for suggestions and then inquire if you can tag along.

4) Day 4: 30 Minutes of Continuous Walking and Strength Find a friend or ask your spouse to go for a 30 minute brisk walk after work. Repeat the strength training exercises from Day 2.

5) Day 5: Bring it Outside Weather permitting, go for a bike ride, play tennis, or participate in another fun, outdoor sport with a friend or family member. Moderate activity can also include yard work...which means you’re exercising and getting something else done at the same time
