"Bribery!" - the best thing since sliced bread??

When reasoning, tantrum throwing, excuses don't work to get out of the door and walk, or out of bed, or off the couch to exercise...bribery is my fallback wing girl! (I'll let you wear your SpongeBob "Geeks Rule" tshirt if you get up and go for that walk...you can take your camera and take nature snaps along the way if you do the first 3kms at least at your best pace....Self, you can listen to "Moves like Jagger" 20 times in a row for all I care if you're Jumping-Jackin' while it's playing!)

If I have to sit for long periods of time, every 15 minutes or so, I get up and move around for 5 minutes.

Burn 400+ calories a day with a stand-up desk

You can burn 400 calories a day just by switching from sitting all day to standing. There's a do-it-yourself stand-up desk kit from bits you ca get at IKEA for under $25. I made one for myself, and bought an anti-fatigue mat so my feet/legs wouldn't get sore. Also, because I'm already standing, walking around is something I do a lot more often.

Accountability

I go to a water aerobics class twice a week with four friends and that keeps me accountable! I also attend my husbands cardiac rehab program three times weekly which is a really good workout and that helps support him in his heart health and me in my weight loss! emoticon

Dog-driven jog

Dotty-the-Dog and I head to the front door several times during the day (ie: Commercials on TV, between chores) and when she gets outside she either takes off down the drive or "bows" to me the way dogs do--Taking off means a brisk walk around our long driveway. "Bowing" means I 'have to fast jog! It's amazing how often she "bows". I get my 1/8 mile jog and so does Dotty! Several times a day!

Dog companions

I take my dog for walks and she loves it--she is the reason I get out on some days, even if it is just for a mile or just around the block if it is allergy season.
