stretchy bands & resistance tubing

I love my stretchy bands and resistance tubing. I carry them in my big tote bag and use them when I have a few spare moments at work. I can easily do 10 - 15 minutes a couple of times a day. It's nice to be able to do at least some sort of exercise on a busy day.

Submit Woman!

Fitness, like finances allows everyone, not matter what shape they are in to exalt themselves to the position of expert. One thing that has really helped me was to quit being an expert, and submit to the plans and teaching of actual trainers. Especially ones that know what they are talking about!

Make an appointment!

I run with my friends EVERY Tuesday and Thursday evening. With it being a commitment, other things have to be scheduled around this.

The Guiltless Couch Potato

When watching your favorite shows, instead of using the commercial time to grab a snack, use it to burn a few calories instead. Get down and do some crunches, push-up or raise your heart rate with some jumping jacks or butt kicks. Then, you won't feel guilty about watching a little TV.

Doing Sit-Ups (Crunches) Will Save Your Back!

Not only will abdominal exercises strengthen your bones and the muscles of the back, but they'll also strengthen your entire midsection - which takes weight and pressure off your back. So add crunches to your routine as well as leg lifts and bent-over back rows. (You: The Owner's Manual)

Feel the Pain!

After working out and I don't feel any stiffness or pain the next morning, I feel like maybe I didn't push myself hard enough, so it gets me wanting to take it to the next level next time I go to the gym.
