i need to really have a good workout today
Sitting on the couch isn't go to help anyone lose the weight! Even if the tv is on find a way to move, stretch, use weights, do leg lfts..... The tv may be on but it doesn't mean people have to veg out!
To get in a few extra steps and a little more workout, on my way home, I either get off the bus one stop before mine and walk or I don't take the bus at all and walk the mile from the train station.
Need a workout while you travel? Pack a stretch (fitness) band. It does not weigh much or take up lots of space and can replace heavy weights. Check online for specific exercises!
I purchased a rather inexpensive one at Walmart. I was surprised how many calories I burned by the end of the day. Moreover, I WANTED to walk more because the proof was in the numbers! So, ya get more motivated. I even walked during breaks at work.
When I am on my recumbent bike, I work hard at pressing my shoulders back as I am pedaling to work on improving my posture. It feels really great!
The way I keep myself exercising every night is I download a audio book onto my mp3 player and listen to the story. I get so involved in the story that I want to exercise and forget how long I have been exercising. In order to find out what happens next in the book I have to go and exercise.
Check how many calories you burn on different equipment. You might move to the elliptical and up those calories burned in the same time.
