Move 5 Min. Every Hour

Keeping our bodies moving throughout the day is as important as going to the gym 3 times a week, maybe more so. At the top of every hour (my watch beeps) I am reminded to go move for 5 min. (yardwork, laundry, walk dog, or wrestle kids. I am always surprised to have more energy throughout the day.

Enjoy the moment and you'll go far (literally)

I find that when I go for a walk I wear a pedometer, but I don't think about steps or distance - I just walk and listen to my music. I get so wrapped up in the music that I don't realize how far I've walked til my legs started to ache.

Walking in the Dark

With the time change coming, walking the dark is something we all may find we have to do. To be safe, take a small, but powerful, keychain-sized flashlight with you to shine as you walk. If yu use a one on a keychain, just put the ring on your finger and let it dangle from your hand as you walk. The light brings attention to you so that drivers are aware you are there. Safe walking! emoticon

Ready to Walk

When I walk my boys to school, I wear my running shoes & clothes, instead of sandals. That way, I feel ready to exercise. I'll either extend my walk or dance or do yoga at home - No excuses, since I'm already dressed for it.

Be more Inefficient

I read an article on Sparkpeople about getting more exercise/movement in and one of the tips was to be more inefficient which I have really taken to heart. When I'm not in a huge rush, I will take 4 trips to the laundry room, many more steps to clean up (picking only one item up at a time), going to the fridge multiple times (not to eat more food but to prepare meals). It really adds up and keeps my body in motion. Plus I try to do little exercises while doing this - squats, calf lifts, etc

I CAN DO 20 MINUTES, BUT 60 MINUTES IS TOO LONG!

On the days I do cardio only at the gym, my routine is to do 60 minutes. I dread it because it seems so long. Lately rather than stay on one piece of equipment for the entire time, I have spent 20 on the elliptical, 20 on the treadmill and 20 on the bike. It goes so much faster and before I've had time to think about how much longer I have to go, I'm done. WOOHOO!

Stress Reliever

Every morning whether warm or cold, I make myself a cup of coffee, sit out on the porch and chill. I'll log into Spark Coach. Pet the cat. Listen to the birds. Breathe in the fresh air. Start my day chilled. I spend as long as my morning cup of Joe. But ohhhhhh, the peace it brings to the rest of the day.
