My Secret

I like to stretch and do some yoga poses while I'm watching tv or cooking dinner. It helps me get any kinks out of my body from working and, and it helps me center myself.

Calf Raises

I do calf raises while preparing food. Lifting up on my toes slow and controlled, speeding them up, and I'll also do them pigeon-toed. You can also lift up your toes, and go up on your heels to work different muscles.

I also add in a few calf stretches when I go upstairs to go to bed at night, letting my heels sink a little lower for a few seconds on each step.

The Motivation Jar

Every time you are done a workout, write what was so great about it on a small piece of paper (e.g. "I felt strong when I ran today"). Then fold the paper and add it to your motivation jar. When you are feeling less motivated, you can reach in and read a few papers to get you pumped up to workout again.

Timer

I set my timer for 45 mins and get up and walk through the office and reset when I sit back down. Or I'll start a conversation on IM and when the person answers I know they are at their space so I get up and go visit instead of continuing to type.

Changing direction, changing mindset

Sprarkcoach taught me the value of staying with it, and to take time to refresh how each day went. Tracking food choices and staying in balance. Also mixing up my exercise even if it is only 5 or 10 minutes at a time.

Be Prepared

I have found that if I prepackage my snacks (carrot sticks, any cut up fresh veggies), cut up fruit, cheese cubes, etc., I have a better chance of keeping my Blood Sugar regulated. No More Digging thru the cabinets for something to Snack On !!!! emoticon

Baby It's Cold Outside...

Here in Boston we are having a major cold streak, with wind, fog, frozen rain and light snow. It's not pretty and it's not inviting. So...... I discovered Jessica Smith's youtube channel, which has all kinds of videos lasting 15 minutes. She has a body-sculpt video and it is fabulous. She also has a 30-minute walking video for indoors which includes HIIT intensity intervals. I'm going to use that next time it's too yucky out to walk.

Cheers, everyone.

Grocery Shopping at its best

Walk around the perimeter of the store before grocery shopping... Also park as far out as you can in the parking lot.
