Using a timer for tracking exercise minutes
Like walking only better! Burns about twice the calories and even more when you are piggy backing a 40 lb child for part of the time, plus it's fun!!
I recently heard that sliding around hard floors in your socks for 10 minutes burns around 150 calories. And it's fun, too!
I walk during every break at work...no matter what !!!
Play jump rope, use the hula hoop, and ride a bike again.
I got the Wii game Just dance for my family for Easter. We have had so much fun dancing and challenging each other to see who can get the highest points.
It is a great cardio workout and we send time together!
When I have just too much to do around the house that there's practically no time for exercise at all, I create an upbeat playlist then dance my way off through cleaning. Each song works as a timer as well like, move my hips and finish cleaning the counters by the end of the song!..It works!
I have a stability ball and an exercise bike in the living room in front of the TV. If I am watching TV, I need to be sitting on one or the other. The time goes by quickly while I am watching my favorite shows and I am strengthening various parts of the body in the meantime.
If something gets in the way of your scheduled workout, have a plan B ready to go.
