Buddy System

I've been making a lot of friends who are also into fitness so instead of making dinner plans ... I've been making running dates for the weekends :)

Strength Training is Key

Strength trainiing is changing my life for the better! I alternate days of working my arms and doing some light cardio with days of strengthening my thighs and abs. It's helping me lose weight and feel good about how my body looks! In fact, I even blogged all about it.

Bike commute

Bike commuting is a good way to get in some cardio training and even intervals, if you're so inclined!

Movin' It!

I use every opportunity to move my body. When waiting for my coffee in the morning, I do wall pushups on my kitchen counter. While waiting for my toast, I do leg lifts and knee bends. It all counts in the overall scheme of the day.

Interval training of 8 and 12 seconds

I read research done by an Australian University that showed women who swapped 30 minutes of non interval cardio for 20 minutes of 8 seconds (fast) 12 seconds (regular) on an exercise bike lost more weight. So I changed my routine and it has worked for me.

Step it up :)

How many steps can you take? I bought a pretty high quality PEDOMETER to keep track of my daily steps. I have found all kinds of ways to keep those steps moving all day long. I park further away; I take more trips to and from the car; I use my legs instead of the phone when possible, etc!

Can you walk there?

If you can walk to a destination and make it home with out a car (like when you pick up a few things) walk it! Or even ride your bike if you have one! If you must use your car though, you can always park faaar away to get some extra walking in. emoticon

Dancing

When I dance, I feel great and I have so much energy! Dancing is a wonderful form of exercise! Doing an exercise I enjoy is keeping the extra weight I have lost so far off and I know it will help me to reach my goal weight.

Morning Exercise

emoticon I find that getting my exercise done the first thing in the morning gets my day off to a good start. If I put it off, everything seems to be behind schedule and I am upset with myself. Being a morning person may be why this works for me.
