Walking with my Dog!!!

My secret is walking with my dog. If I am not ready he will keep bugging me until I get up and walk. Even if he just got back from a walk with my son. It is his mission to get me out of the house and moving even for a couple of minutes or an hour walk. emoticon

Meetings and Moving

I work from home and have to attend a lot of teleconferences. I used to sit through these meetings. Now, I use the speakerphone and pace back and forth. This is great since some of the meetings are an hour long.

step-ups

I cant afford gym prices so I thought outside the box! I live in an apartment and what I do is use the stairs and step-up! It's that easy

Deep Breathing

If I don't feel like walking a little further or adding extra exercise to my day I sit up straight and take long deep slow breaths (through my stomach, not my chest). I do this for just a few minutes and it seems to help me feel energized and relaxed at the same time! Then I feel like doing just a little more and I don't give up.

Just Keep Moving

Exercise is all about moving. If we don't have a set time (i.e. 30 minutes) of exercise to do at one time, we think: "What's the use." I like having a step calculator so I can get my 6,000 to 10,000 steps in a day. I like walking outside (I live near the beach) because once I have gone a distance I can't just give up because I have got to walk back. I park far from the store and I look for opportunities to walk all through the day. If you doing this, you will be easily moving throughout the day.

Walking

I don't have any big secret of getting my exercise however I can only share what works for me. I like to keep going and not sit around. I ride my exercise bike once in awhile however I love walking, walking, walking. It does something for my spirits and invigorates me. I am open to other exercise and see if it stimulates more cardio. Maybe checking out a gym or exercise program. emoticon

Extra Motivation

Started exercising in the morning, then trying to exercise again in the afternoon after work. Two a days really get me to feeling that I'm making progress, plus I feel energized to get more work done in the evening. Helps me get to sleep a couple hours later too.
