Laps around the neighborhood = miles in no time!

No need for fancy equipment or a gym membership. Just get outside and start walking (or jogging) laps around your neighborhood or even up and down your driveway. Track your laps on "Map my Walk" and it will calculate your speed and distance. Those laps = miles in no time at all!

Doing fun exercises daily

My fun exercises are: ballroom dancing, zumba, walking, following you tube videos from Jessica Smith TV, Leslie Sansone and yoga with Adrienne, going to the gym and joining in on yoga class once a week and working out with a trainer at the gym for 30 minutes once a week.

Cleaning Dance

I love to listen to music while I clean or fold laundry. Most of the time is is easy to just start dancing while I work. The dog sometimes thinks I am weird though. emoticon

Pomadoro- slicing the tomato!

I work at home, sitting in front of a computer.
One technique for better work quality is the 'pomadoro' where you set a timer and work either for 25 minutes then take a 5 minute break, or work for 50 minutes and take and take a 10 minute break. Use the breaks for exercise, get up, move, stairs, back yard, getting a drink. Just MOVE!
The pomadoro, working in slices, improves work output and can program in activity to an otherwise sedentary day. So SLICE and MOVE. emoticon

"Old Dog" and "New" Trick

I recently resumed running as a cardio exercise, and I feel better mentally and physically. Exercising outdoors clears the cobwebs for the rewarding and stress-filled work of a middle school teacher.

Walk / Jog in Place during the Day

I work from home, so I have to be sitting at least 8 hours a day in front of the computer. I have found several short songs with a very quick beat that work well when I have a moment to hope up and walk, sidesteps, or jog in place. I turn and look out the window or door to refocus my eyes. I sit back down feeling refreshed.

Park as far away from entrances as safety will permit!

When not wearing my highest heels, I park as far away from grocery store, malls and other entry ways as possible.
