A Rainy Day Strategy

On a rainy day during the week if my cleaning lady doesn't come, I'll take public transportation to K-Mart to walk. Since I need a cart for support, I walk around the store so I can shop and exercise at the same time.

There will be those days...

...those days when the last thing you want to do is your exercise routine. Just do it anyway. Your body will be glad, your sense of dedication will be glad and it will put you one step closer to your goals.

Lunge Walking

I lunge walk all the time wherever I'm at. It helps build my lean muscle groups increasing my metabolism and allowing me to burn more calories. I can really see a difference.

Make Exercise Fun

I have found my Wii to be a GREAT addition to my exercise options - especially on a bad weather day. It gets me up, gets me active and I have fun - time and calories fly!!!

Neighborhood Walking - Incorporate Storm Drains As Steps!

We have a 3 mile route in our neighborhood and every time we get to a storm/sewer drain, I use them to do steps. It breaks up the walking and gets my heart rate up. With 29 drains on the route and 20 steps on each leg, that's 1160 on top of a 3 mile walk! Pace yourself, I started at 5 steps each!

" B R E A K I T UP "

Don't have enough time throughout your day to exercise. Why not break it up into three 10-minute sessions? If you're working, use your breaks and lunch hour. At least you're getting the recommended minimum of 30 minutes a day.
