Walk your work break away!

I use my breaks at work to go walking around our building. By doing this twice a day I get in my 30 minutes of walking! I've even got some co-workers joining me now!

Easy Exercising For S.A.H.M.s

As a stay-at-home-mom I find it hard to get in my daily exercise because the kids are always under my feet and in the way. To make it work, I put in a fun aerobics DVD and tell my toddlers we are playing a game. They dance and do the exercises with me. This also helps with getting them to nap.

Don't call or email - GO!

In the traditional office, it has become so easy to just call or email a person. For the most part, we don't talk face to face anymore. A sad result is that we don't move as much. To be healthier, get up & go see the co-worker in person. If possible, take a flight of stairs instead of the elevator.

Every bit counts

I'm lucky enough to work where there is a large family restroom. EVERY time I visit (no excuses!), I set a timer to 2 minutes and do some intense cardio. This is enough to get my heart rate up and boost my metabolism throughout the day. Since I drink so much water, I burn about 150 calories/day!

No one EVER regrets a Workout!

There are those days when you just don't feel like working out. We all have them. It's during those moments that we have a choice--Ditch the workout, or JUST DO IT. I find that whenever I do the activity, I never ever have regrets & I always feel better! Visualization is the key.

Exercise before a meal

Exercising before a meal such as dinner has always helped me eat less. After sweating it out, emoticon you're less likely to gorge on fattening foods. It completely takes my appetite away & gives me a great burst of energy! Try it! emoticon
