Exercise Videos at the Library

Our local library has a large selection of workout videos. I like to try them out first before I buy them.

Mixing it Up

I mix my workouts up - going from walking to jumping rope to the elliptical. My routines are different on different days. In doing that I have not gotten bored and have seen great results. emoticon

Interval Training While Walking

I like to walk both outdoors and on my treadmill. I've been reading about how interval training is a great way to boost metabolism and burn more calories. Basically, you alternate between brisk walking and fast walking/sprinting.

Marching while cleaning!

I got a Biggest Loser workout CD. Twice a week when I get home I put it in the stereo and start cleaning my house which includes a lot of putting stuff away. Instead of piling stuff on the stairs I bound up and down them. The music is pumping and I keep my feet marching ...in about 45 minutes I have

15 min to success

When I don't feel like working out I tell myself that I only have to do 15 min and then I can stop. Usually by the time I get to the 15 min I am through the hardest part and I end up having a great workout but if after 15 min I don't want to work out anymore, I don't. Don't lie to yourself.

Play Actively With Cat

"Dublin Tag/Races" is the name I gave to an almost daily game my cat & I play. As do most cats, he goes on a tear around our home every day. I've started running with him, sometimes playing a version of hide-&-seek, where he seeks, & sometimes I just run around with him chasing me.

Mini Goals Help To Smash Walls

Setting mini goals along the way, especially when biking or walking, etc., has been helpful to me. It keeps me moving towards my main goal during a session in small, manageable doses. Pick a point ahead to shoot for & then choose another a little ways beyond. Makes it easier.

Getting out the door...

It is easier to get out that door for a morning walk when I lay all my exercise clothing and shoes out the night before, get to bed early and set that alarm. I am out the door in about 5-6 minutes. I start with stretching and easy walking then kick into high gear. I have no excuses... LOL

my tv rule

I record all my shows on my dvr then watch them while I'm on my treadmill, either in the early morning while my kids are asleep or after they go to bed.

If you have spasms or cramping after exercise...

When I started with SP a year and a half ago; I was in a wheelchair with poor circulation. When I started exercising my legs, My legs became Really Restless! I take natural Magnesium Lactate Twice a day and if I need extra, I have one more before bed! YES to exercise; NO to cramps! Hugs.
