stretching while you wait

I do stretches while I'm waiting for things, like the coffee to be done!

Baby lifts

My son wants me to hold him ALL THE TIME. He's 16 months and about 30 pounds. Sometimes when I pick him up I play with him by lifting him above my head at least 10 times. Its fun for him and a workout for me

When In Doubt...

Do squats or planks! I started out hating planks, but they make me feel so much stronger if I do them consistently. I like to do both while watching tv and squats are great when you're doing something idle with your hands while standing (cough, dishes, cough)...

Fall prevention exercises each day such as toe raises, marching, high knees, kick in the butt, leg extensions and squats!

I know that by doing these same few exercises each day I am preventing myself from falling!

marching in place

While doing dishes or laundry, I constantly am marching in place. I throw a couple of lunges and jumping jacks in there as well. It's not much but can add up over a weeks time.

Extra Steps

I spend a lot of time sitting at a desk for work, all day every day, but I will get up about every 30 to 45 minutes and take a stroll around the office. It breaks up the monotony of the day.

TV and Walking

OK, I admit it. I watch way too much TV. Do you? I have found some nice walking videos on the Internet...simple, but moving. So while I watch TV I also walk a mile or two with Leslie Sansone. If you like Jane Fonda, you can walk with her instead. Keep moving.

Lift heavy weights girls! No, really.

I tried six months doing 45-60 minutes of high intensity aerobics. After a while, I plateaued and was really discouraged. Since November I've been focusing weight lifting at the limit of my ability and this time the weight went much faster. I was a size 6/8 and now I'm a size 2/4.
