Talk a walk each time you take a restroom break

At work I need to get up and take a restroom break a few times a day. Once I get up out of my chair I use it as a reminder to do some walking around at a quick pace before sitting back down. a quick 10 minute walk gets in some of my 10,000 daily steps and gets me energized for what I need to do next.

Yoga

Yoga is one of the few forms of exercise I can do without injury or causing a flare (fibromyalgia)... not only that, but it's a great stress reducer (helps keep anxiety away).

Just took patience...

After 21 yrs of suffering mobility issues, post motor vehicle accident, I began working with a Physical Therapist who knows what he is doing(finally). I also began using Spark People! With the support and info provided here I was able to apply what I need to not only lose the weight I need to but to get healthy and fit at the same time. When I began PT I had a range of motion of 0 degrees of my left ankle. Today? I was ased if I would like to be discharged for my birthday!

Rest

I have just started exercising muscle groups hard and have gotten sore, especially my back and arms. Today I took it easy and rested. I feel renewed. Maybe will rest again from exercise again tomorrow. This is a new adventure for me. I am 62 and have not exercised for ten years.

Toothbrush squats

I have an easier time starting a new habit if I hook it to an existing habit. I always brush my teeth twice a day, so... I have an electric toothbrush that times the "clean portion for 2 minutes." I do 30 squats in those 2 minutes while I brush my teeth. Then I do balancing exercises during the 2 minute white cycle, and kegels during the 1 minute "polish" cycle. I always do these few minutes of exercise every night. It actually helps me sleep better, too. And now it's a habit.

Keep moving

Even when I'm not motivated I just keep moving. I make a big deal out of loading the washer and dryer, moving every part of my body that I can.I keep the soap on a high shelf so that I have to stretch to reach it. Same with things in the kitchen. Reaching and stretching every chance I get. When I'm shopping, I am really moving. I go the long way around to get to the aisles I need to go in. Those few extra seconds for each task add up to minutes that I don't miss. emoticon

Moving @ the Office

I set my Outlook Calendar reminder to move every two hours... so I get up and take a walk around the floor... it's a very large building - just to get the cafeteria and back to my desk it takes me 20 minutes.

Dance with kids

I crank up the music and dance with my kids. We have a blast dancing to Disney favorites or 80's classics! I get my exercise in and bond with my babies!
