walking instead of desert

In stead of having a desert such as Skinny Cow I now go for a 30 minute walk emoticon

work on portion control

Before I serve a meal, I determine exactly what the correct portion is ahead of time and serve just that amount on the plate. Any left-overs are immediately put away so i'm not tempted to give myself seconds because its still sitting in the pan. emoticon

I exercise while standing in line

I have an unusual health condition that requires moving my body even when standing or sitting for a length of time. I have fun doing lunges while waiting in line at the grocery or kicking my legs forward while sitting in a public place. People occasionally stare, but I don't mind. Maybe it will start a new trend toward better fitness. Best wishes to all my SP friends out there. You're the best! Mary in Kansas emoticon

Ball Chair

I have an exercise ball chair at my office, it is good for my core but it is great for fidgeting.

Squeeze extra movement

I go to the grocery store when it's not busy & walk the aisles very briskly. It's warm, no snow or ice, long aisles & very close to my house. I also bring grocery carts back inside. The employees appreciate the help (especially if it's cold outside) & I like helping. I also run errands as a favor for my DH...if he forgot something in the office above the garage --- I'll go get it -- I need the steps & stairs.

Love Spark People

I love spark people. Thank You Spark People. I log in every day and record my nutrition, and fitness every day. If I didn't have such a neat place to do it, I am not sure if i would get it done. They do so much of the head work so there is not a reason for me not to do it. I love my Spark Tracker as it keeps track of my steps and calories i burn. I also love the way Spark Coach teaches me so many things. Love it.

Have a Smoothie for Some Pre-Exercise Energy!!

Having a fruit packed smoothie an hour+ before your workout will give you lasting energy throughout even an intense 60 minute cardio session! I used to try all sorts - protein, energy gels, caffeine - but I've found that fruit (both fresh fruit ad/or a smoothie) give an energy boost like no other! Give it a try!

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.
