Butt Dancing

As I drive to and from work I dance to the music on the radio. It started with sucking in my stomach and stretching my back and has advanced to swaying, twisting and contracting my butt. The 45 minute drive doesn't seem so long, my back no longer hurts when I drive and I am wearing a smaller size pant.

Standing instead of sitting while working on my computer

I raised up my desk so my Computer Monitor is at eye level when standing. Fewer lower back tightness and I can move around more this way.

Set Timer when sitting

I set a timer for 30 minutes when I sit down. When It goes off, I've got to get up and move for 10.

500 reps

Through out the day I randomly jog in place or do marching , I keep counting my steps until they reach 500 . It is an easy way to fit in a bit of calorie burning here and there !

Secret to Success of burning extra calories

When I start to get bored, I will take the dog for a quick walk. That burns about 25 calories for a quick trip around the block, which is about .25 miles! emoticon

Sit on exercise ball instead of chair or couch!

Spend a few minutes, or even a hour or more, using your exercise ball in place of a chair or sofa. You use more muscles! I really enjoy doing this. I use an exercise ball (Swiss ball) while sitting at work, and at home, I'll deliberately pull the ball and use it to sit!

Stair break

For a quick exercise fix, I get out from behind my desk and do a few flights of stairs from the top (3rd floor) to the basement. This enables me to get exercise breaks in at work without returning to my desk all sweaty...always a good thing!

Chris Powell Easy Exercise!

I loved this advice from Chris Powell, he suggested do 10 minutes every day and when you feel comfortable add 5 more minutes and et cetera. You'd think I would've thought of that, but I didn't. lol emoticon

Turbo cleaning

Yup. I just up and set a timer for 15 minutes and go to a "hot spot" and clean like crazy. Love it and my house looks so much better! emoticon
