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.

step it up

Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Bonus: can save time, too!
