Dancing in the office

I shut my office door and dance to a favorite song at least twice a day. I try and pick a song that is at least three minutes long.

Throwing the ball with the dog

If your dog likes when you throw the ball like mine does then here's an idea I found out today.
Throw the ball and do jumping jacks until they bring it back.

Lunges and Squats While Taking a Smoke Break

Okay, I'm bad . . . I smoke. But, whenever I go outside to smoke, I get in 10-20 lunges and 10-15 squats. Gets my heart rate and respiration up. My knees are getting stronger. The gorgeous weather we're having here in Houston lately makes it a real pleasure! If it's raining, there is a covered area that I can do my lunges and squats in.

Wall push-ups

Wall push-ups are a good way to get more upper-body exercise when you may not have time for floor push-ups, or maybe you're not so great at floor push-ups. They benefit chest, shoulders, arms/triceps, and core muscles. Step back just a little (safely) to "lean into the wall" more, and make the push-ups a bit more challenging. If you need to protect a wall from natural oil from your hands, try wearing non-slip or rubber gloves.

Bathroom walk

I always choose the furthest bathroom away from my office so I have an excuse to get in at least 5 more minutes of walking in my day! And drinking lots of water helps, because then I have to go every 30 mins! That's a lot extra walking!

Exercise Goals! (Running for me)

Setting and reaching CONCRETE goals is the most motivating for me in my fitness and weight loss journey. Since I have a concrete date to run my first 5k, and a concrete path to get there using couch to 5k programs, it has been a HUGE motivation boost now that I have been on the path to reaching my goals the past few weeks. Plus exercise you KNOW you've done it or not, weight loss is sometimes a crap-shoot certain times with plateaus and such. emoticon

Bathroom exercises

I use the trip to the restroom to get a set in on my exercises. I pick an exercise for the day (like squats) and do 10 every time I use the facility. If you get your water in for the day you get a lot of sets in. emoticon

"Bribery!" - the best thing since sliced bread??

When reasoning, tantrum throwing, excuses don't work to get out of the door and walk, or out of bed, or off the couch to exercise...bribery is my fallback wing girl! (I'll let you wear your SpongeBob "Geeks Rule" tshirt if you get up and go for that walk...you can take your camera and take nature snaps along the way if you do the first 3kms at least at your best pace....Self, you can listen to "Moves like Jagger" 20 times in a row for all I care if you're Jumping-Jackin' while it's playing!)
