Share the exercise tips and workout ideas that have worked for you.
I love to put on my favorite up beat music and either run in place or on many occasions I'll break out into some dance moves. I feel my blood really flowing then. Don't stop now. Keep it going.
On the nights I don't want to work out, I tell myself.."Get on the treadmill at least 5 minutes...after that time, if I don't want to keep going, I give myself permission to stop". Usually once I'm on and into the workout, I don't want to stop!
I have a desk job so last fall I decided to use a stability ball as my "chair". Not only do I get some extra abs exercise, the stability ball makes me sit straighter at my desk.
Buy nice shower products, body lotions and lounge-pants, so that you can reward yourself with nice things after a workout. That way you'll have positive associations with working out.
When I'm angry or frustrated at someone, I usually go out and take a long walk, run stairs, or do some other type of physical activity. It gives me a chance to think, and to work out my feelings. Usually I run out of energy at the same time I run out of mad.
To get in a good walk every night, I bring my boyfriend. We dont even realize we are walking, we just enjoy talking!
I had a heart attack and 4 by-passes.
The day after I got home I was very weak & easily out of breath. I started my Drs. walking plan, which meant only walking out 2 my mailbox 1x /day.
After 2 days I increased it to 2x/day for 2 days, then walked down the drive 2 my next door neighbors drive ...
It took a few tries, but finding an exercise that I consider fun has made all the difference. My fun activity is water aerobics.
skip the elevator at work; take the stairs; not a secret right?
after each flight or 2 stop and do 15 calf raises from a step until you hit your floor. Summer calfs need to be beautiful and this will do the trick!
