Nike + iPod

I like to run outside but it seems like I'm running so much slower than on a treadmill. Nike + iPod keeps track of my pace, time, calories and distance traveled while playing my favorite music. Turns out I wasn't running any slower after all. The best part is, you can use it with any running shoe.

IPOD

Everybody seems to have an ipod these days so set the pedometer and keep it in your pocket. You get to count your steps for the day and listen to music or listen to books while exercising or going for a run/walk. I am now so dependent on it. emoticon

Power Plate

I love using the Power Plate at the gym to warm up and cool down, not only does just doing 13 minutes a time burn 126 cals (for my height and weight) but it also strengthens your muscles. Recent research concluded that this also helps to boost weightloss

Walking down hill

I am not fit enough to climb a local landmark's steep 1.6 mile trail. For now, a friend drops me off at the top of the hill. Resisting gravity provides a good workout, and I am forced to walk the entire course to get a ride home with my friend, who waits at the bottom of the hill.

Trampoline

Being a mother, it is hard to find time to exercise. So when the weather is nice, I like to jump on the trampoline with my kids. It is a great workout and I get to spend time with my kids which is a double bonus!

Walking With Books

Instead of curling up in my favorite chair to read a book, I load audiobooks on my iPod and listen while walking.

Shake that money maker

Dance parties with the family are a great way to share laughter, make some memories and burn those calories. My daughter will even get dressed up for them and it adds to the festive nature.
