Walk

If I can take a few minutes away from my desk during stressful times, I find it helps reduce my stress level. A couple laps around the building is plenty to feel better.

Watching Water Boil Doesn't Have to be Tedious

Keep an exercise band in the pantry with the mop and broom. While watching whatever is on the oven or on the stovetop, do a 10+ minute strength training workout. You'll find that water comes to a boil a lot quicker than it used to!

Watch the carb

Nothing is off limits but eating more fruits/veggies & less bread, rice & pasta is working. I'm not tracking but try to eat fewer servings of starches and eat them earlier in the day. It is good for me to eat a lean meat, veggies & skim milk for dinner. It is pretty simple and it is doing the trick.

Leg lifts

I try to add extra leg lifts throughout the day while I'm washing dishes, waiting for something in the microwave, washing my hands, brushing my teeth, etc. You can get quite a few extra lifts in and it doesn't feel like I have to motivate myself to do it. emoticon

walking

I try to walk everyday, except if it is raining or snowing. It is one of the exercises that really has helped me loose the weight. Sometimes I walk 25 minutes and sometimes 30, 35, 40 etc.

chore/reward

A chore is only a "chore" when you let you brain think of it in a negative way. I now see chores as opportunitis to burn caloris...it's mind over matter. So, go rake the leaves and reward yourslf with a crisp juicy apple!

Use what you have available

I use my surroundings to get in "extra" exercise. I "live" and work downstairs in my townhouse but the upstairs is part of my home/life and I have a list of things I can/need to do upstairs. I always use the upstairs bathroom, for example, not the downstairs one, etc. emoticon

stretching

My co-workers have become completely used to me doing body stretches while carrying on a conversation with them. There are a lot of them that can be done while sitting in a chair or standing. I of course avoid the sitting on the floor one! Oh how nice it would be to work at a daycare. LOL

Extra Exercise

Instead of just doing 1 big shopping trip, I make multiple smaller trips. This keeps me moving for a longer period and hopefully burning more calories.
