Multi Modal Transportation

My one way walk to the bus stops gets me 1.25 miles, and once I get downtown, I have another close to a mile walk to my destination. If I were driving, I'd lose almost four miles of walking.

Exercise first thing in the morning

Getting up at 4:30 and getting my exercise done before I am awake enough to make excuses works for me!

Tools of the trade

Set your smaller pieces of exercise equipment, i.e. resistance bands, dumbbells., in a common area so you can fit in a little exercise throughout your day.

Dont let the POLLEN keep you inside..

The pollen is bad. I just take my Allegra. I just do my 30-45 minutes outside or at the gym and go on with my day.

Wii Active

Getting EA Sports Active for the Wii was a big boost to my exercise program. This software has pre-programmed workouts and it keeps track of the time spent as well as approximate calories. You should have the Wii Balance Board to use with it.

random acts of fitness

when press for time every little bit of exercise helps. Try running errands, or sneaking in a bit of walking while waiting for the bus or carpool. It may look stupid, but the benifits will be great.

Take an exercise break

As a teacher, I often have to bring my work home with me. For a while, I would think that I didn't have time to exercise. Now, when I need a break, the best thing I can do to help me regain focus again is to get in a little exercise: walk, run, take out the trash, whatever suits my fancy that day.

Walking home from the bus stop

To get my exercise into my work day, I walk home from the bus stop. If I transfer buses and walk home from the closer bus stop, it takes me 15 minutes, but if I want a longer workout, I don't transfer buses and walk home from there. That takes me a half hour.
