Interval training music

www.podrunner.com's interval training music is really cool. Training programs C5K, C8K, C10K available. VERY helpful. Best part: It's free!

Childhood Love Keeping It Simple

Exercise doesn't have to be a chore. Look at some things you did as a child for fun like jump rope, hula hoop, kickball, dodge ball, and hop scotch these things never felt like exercise. It was all simple and fun things to do with family and friends.

TO BE (STRENUOUS ENOUGH) OR NOT TO BE - THAT IS THE QUESTION!

Target Heart Rate=THR=measures exercise intensity=easy & precise. THR=zone/range HR falls in 2 train aerobically. Train below THR not intense enough. Train above THR= anaerobically (without oxygen)= inefficient & too intense.

Getting Going

Even when I don't feel like exercising I make myself at least start by saying that I will only exercise 10 minutes. Most of the time I do a full workout once I get started.

Walk to the Restaraunt!

We have taken to walking to and from our local favorite restaurants. It gives us 30 minutes of walking and more time to enjoy each other!

Get those arms moving!

Before I step into the shower I do those little arm circles. I started with 25, and now I do 150. I also do "swimming" strokes - and get my whole upper body going. Really gets the blood moving, and I can see those arms firming up.

Exercise Appointment

I tend to procrastinate (avoid!) when it comes to starting my strength exercises so I've started putting the message "DO YOUR STRENGTH EXERCISES" on my Spark appointment calendar. I get an e-mail message of the appointment and I don't delete it until I've done the exercises!
