Every little bit counts!

Get up and move around every 45 minutes when I am at a desk.

Always show up- you'll feel so much better

They say "you're only one workout away from a good mood"-SO TRUE!.
I've never regretted working out- doesn't have to be a sweaty session- a short walk, a short core workoutif pushed for time.
I have however regretted NOT working out & not woken properly that day, or I've kept a headache longer.

I'm not saying go hell for leather every day- just get SOME EXERCISE IN and reap the benefits long term

Eat Healthily
Move More
Sleep Better................be well

Free "7-minutes" exercise app

I love the free "7 minutes" app. It has a series of exercises (e.g. planks, push-ups, lunges, squats, jumping jacks) done in 30 second intervals followed by a 10 second break. I use it on my regular 5k lunch-time walks (do it at my half way point), while on the road (in my hotel room) or anytime I want to sneak in a quick work out. I don't always follow the exercises they direct you to do. The 30 second timer followed by a 10 second break is very useful on its own to do the exercises you want to do.

cottage cheese

I liked cottage cheese but it did not agree with my stomach. Can't take credit, saw it on youtube. I blend the cottage smooth in the blender Now its fine and a good source of protein. Great tip.

You can get your waters in

you start drinking water, it will become addicting! To get your waters in, keep an 8 oz glass in the restrooms you use and every time you tinkle, drink a cup of water. Before you know it, you have them all in. 8 is not the magic number, if you need more, drink more. Most fruits have a lot of water, I count them as 1/2 glass per serving. Upon first rising, drink 2 (it helps your skin and digestive system). emoticon

Extra Steps

I park in a garage that is a good ten minute walk from my office. I can get in an extra 2,000 steps walking to and from the garage every day.

My recumbet bike

I am a reader with my kindle when I ride my bike I get lost in my book and forget had long I've been riding way I don't feel any quilt about reading instead of doing something else. I am retired so I am lucky I can exercise and read when I want to even in the middle of the night.

Binder clips to hold a sheer curtain behind a drape

I have drapes on my windows and sheer curtains. Rather than install a second set of screws to hold the curtains, I used binder clips on the already installed drapery holders. The smaller curtain rod easily slides through the binder clips.
