A little friendly competition

Cheating would be SO easy at work - they put sodas in the fridge as well as water and they're both free to employees. So, to curb that temptation, one of the other ladies and I have a little competition to see who drinks the most water during the workday.

Get Support - No Matter How Small

My husband is happy with his current weight but has started drinking water with me instead of his usual soda. It's a little thing but it helps a lot.

Relaxation

Working with Lego helps me to relax at home, it release any stress I may have. Seeing myself being creative when I think of outrage house with so many colors coming alive or a large building and taking pictures from being to end. I keep my creation up for one month.

Make those everyday little things a mini-workout

When picking something off the floor, do a controlled slow squat instead of bending at the hip. When doing housework, contract and stretch the muscles your are using during movement. Ways keep your abs tight. Occasionally contract your back muscles and roll your shoulders. It All Counts!

State Parks make me more fit

I like to go to the state parks and state forests to get my exercise because there is always a new trail to explore or a new experience to see and do.

Be Creative in Finding & Putting in Exercise in Your Daily Life

Walk up at least one flight of stairs when going to and leaving from work. Walk up the escalator(s) (don't push non-mobile people on escalator--wait for them to get off if you want to walk up the escalator!). Grab house keys, drop off garbage, & then walk one or more blocks.

dont keep this change to yourself

We are stronger in a group.
I know I walk furter than I think I can when I go with someone else. I won't call uncle at the first twinge when I am not alone.
Its better for me and my lazy dog when we walk and play with others where others can see us and we can see them - we don't dawdle as oft...

when having fruit, add some protein (like Greek yogurt) for a satisfying snack. You get protein and calcium to boot!
