Walk to your colleagues instead of emailing them

Instead of sending my colleagues an email on something trivial, I walk to their desk and tell them in person. It is good for adding steps to your daily total and it's also nice to communicate with people in person rather than virtually.

Secret to Successful Weightloss!

What is my secret to successful weight loss? Setting goals and keeping them visible at all times. Tracking my food drinking plenty of water and exercise. Making sure I get at least 30 minutes a day! I get lots more because I play the Wii Tennis Game and other challenging games. Anything to keep me moving! I march in place during commercials, I march when I'm waiting in line. Any movement is good movement!

starting to loose the weight

My only secret is that my husband is doing is gym with me, so his mental help is big for me. So we do 45 minutes 5 times a week, him on his stationary bike and me on my treadmill and watching our favorite programs.

Be Inefficient

I know you've heard it, but it really pays off. Be INefficient doing your chores and shopping, etc.Instead of multi-tasking I break every activity possible into small bits--the amount of extra steps, lifting, bending, reaching, etc. adds up.

Exercises to do while standing

For me when I find myself standing in line or standing around I tend to do a few exercises to pass the time and tighten up my legs. If standing in line somewhere I tend to do different types of calf raises, whether its legs together calf raises or feet apart calf raises. I also do squats or lunges. Just a few things to tighten up my leg muscles while standing in place.

Zumba Gold with a hilarious 60 yr old instructor

Peggy in Santa Barbara is the greatest instructor! I could hardly dance because I was laughing so hard. It was the beginning of my new road to physical fitness!

Fitbit Trainer

I subscribed to the Fitbit Trainer, and it allows me to see the impact of the intensity of my exercise. My long dog walks don't burn many calories, but take a lot of time. When I have a specific CICO goal, Fitbit reads SP's Nutrition information and shows the gap. That prompted me to incorporate some intense exercise each day to make sure my exercise was paying off.

Fitbit Motivation

I am retired,diisabled (wheelchair-bound) and 69 yrs old. For my birthday in March, my daughter gave me a Fitbit. At first i was tracking less than 100 steps a day. After recovering from the shock, i am now tracking 1500 to 2500 steps a day and once in a while close to 3000. It has been a great motivator for me--and i will make it to 10000 steps per day.
