Walk to the Restaraunt!

We have taken to walking to and from our local favorite restaurants. It gives us 30 minutes of walking and more time to enjoy each other!

Get those arms moving!

Before I step into the shower I do those little arm circles. I started with 25, and now I do 150. I also do "swimming" strokes - and get my whole upper body going. Really gets the blood moving, and I can see those arms firming up.

Exercise Appointment

I tend to procrastinate (avoid!) when it comes to starting my strength exercises so I've started putting the message "DO YOUR STRENGTH EXERCISES" on my Spark appointment calendar. I get an e-mail message of the appointment and I don't delete it until I've done the exercises!

Getting to the gym

If you keep your gym back packed and sitting by the door at all times - it acts partly like a reminder to go but it also takes away your excuses. You can even keep it in the car packed.

Do What You Love

I've discovered that I love to do kickboxing and calisthenics much more than other forms of exercise. It's so much easier to stay active if you enjoy what you're doing. Find something you like to do rather than forcing yourself into something boring, and you'll be way more likely to stick with it!

How do you know, if you don't try!

How do you know you can't walk/jog/run/bike that extra few minutes or even just workout at a higher resistance unless you try. You might just amaze yourself,and give your confidence a boost.

Walking

By walking just a little bit every day, I start to feel better and it makes it easier for me to get back into my workout routine! After being inactive for several months, I started walking and after a week I am up to 2 miles at a quick pace and seeing the difference..

Eco-Walk

Take a small trash bag with you on your walks. It helps the environment along with your abs and burns a few more calories.
