If you don't you will have a hard time to keep going.
I love line dancing, water aerobics, gym.
Not only will abdominal exercises strengthen your bones and the muscles of the back, but they'll also strengthen your entire midsection - which takes weight and pressure off your back. So add crunches to your routine as well as leg lifts and bent-over back rows. (You: The Owner's Manual)
After working out and I don't feel any stiffness or pain the next morning, I feel like maybe I didn't push myself hard enough, so it gets me wanting to take it to the next level next time I go to the gym.
Take the stairs instead of waiting for the elevator
These are great and available right here! No special equipment needed for many of them.
For portion control of computer time and to be sure that i get my ST in, I only allow myself to check email or Spark after doing a minimum of one full set of ST.
Guess what? It's really adding up!!! Getting stronger here!
Getting in a little extra - while heating up my lunch at work, I'll do leg abductions or adductions; when brushing my teeth, same thing. Also, I sit at a desk, so butt crunches, stand and do push ups off my desk, anything to keep the blood flowing and get that little extra in.
I try to work out firstthing when I wake up. I eat a piece of fruit to keep my sugar up and then head to the gym. I read that this helps because you are burning more fat and not something that you ate earlier in the day
When my schedule gets so packed that I can't stop for a minute, I find that I can get in a good twenty to thirty minutes of fitness while dinner is cooking. Coarsely chop some potatoes and assorted veggies and pop in the oven to roast for a nutritious tasty meal when you're finished working out.
I try to burn extra calories every chance I can get. If i need to go to the bank or post office I'll walk instead of driving. Also try parking futher away when I shop. It saves the car from getting dinged and adds some more activity to my day!
