For me, I'll be more conscientious of moving, and I'll take the longer way. So if I get up to visit a co-worker, I'll go a more roundabout way to get to her or if I simply go to the kitchen for a snack, I'll make sure to walk an extra lap around the house before getting what I desired. Taking those extra few steps keep me going, motivated and pumped throughout the day
Haven't found an adult to do my exercises with but my 2 year old great granddaughter loves to exercise with me. She makes it fun and she makes me smile as she tries to do what Grandma does. May not be what you are looking for but it works for me.
I walk for 30 minutes a day and when it's too hot here in Florida, I walk in the house while watching a favorite TV program. I get an upper body workout while walking by using my arms throughout the entire half hour.
I am on day three and have to modify my workout, I have severe osteo in my left knee area, it is bone one bone. I am severely overweight. I have lost 49 pounds to date. I was a yo-yo dieter. I surrendered and now I am being coached daily. I want to win this race so I am ready to learn and do. Looking forward to the day I look back and say I am half the man I used to be. Amen
At several points throughout the day, I set a timer for 5 minutes, turn on some music and run in place, do some squats, grab a set of dumbbells - just get up and MOVE. It's fun and I can really work up a sweat! Even on days when I'm not really feeling it, I can talk myself into just turning on some music and pretending like I like to exercise for 5 minutes. Before I know it, I feel better! It's really great this time of year when it's too hot to go play outside and a fantastic stress reliever, too.
