Squeeze extra movement

I go to the grocery store when it's not busy & walk the aisles very briskly. It's warm, no snow or ice, long aisles & very close to my house. I also bring grocery carts back inside. The employees appreciate the help (especially if it's cold outside) & I like helping. I also run errands as a favor for my DH...if he forgot something in the office above the garage --- I'll go get it -- I need the steps & stairs.

Have a Smoothie for Some Pre-Exercise Energy!!

Having a fruit packed smoothie an hour+ before your workout will give you lasting energy throughout even an intense 60 minute cardio session! I used to try all sorts - protein, energy gels, caffeine - but I've found that fruit (both fresh fruit ad/or a smoothie) give an energy boost like no other! Give it a try!

Watching Water Boil Doesn't Have to be Tedious

Keep an exercise band in the pantry with the mop and broom. While watching whatever is on the oven or on the stovetop, do a 10+ minute strength training workout. You'll find that water comes to a boil a lot quicker than it used to!

Leg lifts

I try to add extra leg lifts throughout the day while I'm washing dishes, waiting for something in the microwave, washing my hands, brushing my teeth, etc. You can get quite a few extra lifts in and it doesn't feel like I have to motivate myself to do it. emoticon

walking

I try to walk everyday, except if it is raining or snowing. It is one of the exercises that really has helped me loose the weight. Sometimes I walk 25 minutes and sometimes 30, 35, 40 etc.

chore/reward

A chore is only a "chore" when you let you brain think of it in a negative way. I now see chores as opportunitis to burn caloris...it's mind over matter. So, go rake the leaves and reward yourslf with a crisp juicy apple!

Use what you have available

I use my surroundings to get in "extra" exercise. I "live" and work downstairs in my townhouse but the upstairs is part of my home/life and I have a list of things I can/need to do upstairs. I always use the upstairs bathroom, for example, not the downstairs one, etc. emoticon
