Little mini-challenge for you: Try an Interval Walk or two this week (or adapt it whatever your cardio preference is). Exercise as fast as your can for just 30 seconds, followed by 1 minute at a steady, recovery pace, then repeat as many times as time permits. This type of "interval workout" intensifies your workout, so you don't have dedicate that much of your day to working out, but you still get the same benefits (if not more, because HITT workouts are a excellent addition to your workout regimen).

Last week's "Mini-Challenge" was s to smell a lemon or orange every morning. The aroma should give give you energy! In fact, warm water & lemon juice in the morning is said to be good for yo emoticon u (although I haven't been able to bring myself to drink it yet) Another mmi-challenge will be coming soon! emoticon

Angie, add me back as a friend, so I can send you more of these little tid-bits & mini-challenges more easily! emoticon emoticon

Hey, Angie! Are you out of school yet? We finished on May 1st, and I've been busier than I was when I was teaching! I'm not teaching at all in the summer this year. Hubby and I have lots of sailing plans. How about you? What great things do you have planned for the summer?

Little mini-challenge for you this week! Hopefully, you’ll be reminded of this every day, when you check your sparkpage:

Tone up—without leaving the comfort of your bed! Before getting out of bed each morning, spend just a few minutes doing exercises (or stretches). The softer surface of a mattress forces your muscles to work harder, for stability and balance. Try hip raises (bridges), bicycle-abs, the clam, side-twists (while sitting up, maybe add arm circles to that one). Don’t forget stretches, too. A great one would be pulling your knees towards your chest (good for sciatica). We’ll call it---Fitness for Lazy Days! emoticon emoticon
