Sneaky Little Workouts and Stretches While working and walking the pup

Wow after reading about ways to sneak in exercise, I realize that I had been sneaking in ab work all the time. At work, my chair has the back that when unlocked it allows me to lean back and forward. I really focus on my abs when I do this. I also have that same kind of chair at home...

My Walking Secrets

I am a morning person. I wake up and I'm ready to meet the day. I like to get my walking exercise in early in the morning. I have two dogs that just love going for walks. In the Fall, I take them to the walking trails and off we go with water bottle in hand. I time it so I walk 30 mins out and 30 ...

Jump on treadmill between studying

HI, what I try to do take a 2-3 min walk on the treadmill every hour between my studying, for quick study breaks. The same with working. Every hour I'm up for about 2-5 min trying to get my little walks in to boost my energy and get my brain working. If I am just doing reading for school, I will get...

My Exercise Secrets Too Good To Keep!

I love to get a workout that has HIIT in the mix, as it burns a ton of calories and I get my mile done, in short order because of the HIIT.

When I do laundry, I purposely pick up one item at a time, take and put it in the washer and I do this throughout the entire day that I do laundry. Even...

TV Time Out

I try to exercise during commercials (which I hate). I keep my dumbbells and resistance band right by my chair and pick them up and use them.

I do one to three sets during each commercial break combined with walking through my house (1 circuit = 80 steps). If I do that 10 times in an hour, t...

Getting in extra steps

I am old and over-weight and slightly crippled; it is hard for me to walk much at a time. However, giving thanks to God for every step I take, I get in extra steps by walking around the house while I am waiting for the microwave or other things in the kitchen. Initially my goal was to walk 500 step...

Morning 90-Minutes for Me

I wasn't always this big. I suffer thyroid disease and it causes havoc over more than just my weight. I have bouts of depression, hair loss, hot flashes, migraines and more, but I've pressed through these since my early thirties. What I didn't think would hit me was continuous/repetitive weight loss...

Walk early today

I get up at 5AM, not because I want to, it just happens. No matter what time I go to bed I'm awake at 5. I have started to get dressed, put on my sneakers and get in a 2 mile walk before coffee or breakfast. I am even beginning to enjoy the quiet and me time.

It's amazing how th...

Making Exercise Fun

I already love exercise, but some things are simply more fun than others. Number one Rule is to keep trying things until you find something you love to do. If you don't like it you won't stick with it. I love martial arts movies and grew up watching those old Chinese kung fu movies. So naturally...
