K1 Rocks

I never would have thought it true but, you really can get a decent noncardo workout on a K1. If you get a chance to try a K1 machine do!

Exercise Buddy

Having an exercise buddy has helped me alot. I know when I get home she will be here waiting on me, so I cant get out of my workout.

My iPod and the Treadmill

I am wondering if listening to my iPod while on the treadmill will help me stay on it longer? Does anyone listen to their iPods or watch TV while on the treadmill?

Exercise during TV

About a month ago, I bought the “Shake Weight”. I got it to give me something healthy I can do during commercials when watching TV. At first I could only shake it for a few seconds at a time. Last night I was able to shake it every commercial for almost the length of the entire commercial break.

Don't Come Home Until You Reach 10,000 Steps

I am a stay-at-home wife and usually don't get out much so now that I started going to yoga and zumba each morning M-F, I wear my pedometer and make sure I don't return home until I have reached 10,000 steps. It makes me feel better knowing that once I get home I have crossed off 2 fitness goals.

Exercise first thing in the morning after awakening.

You will never miss if you do something first thing in the morning. Anything after that, is icing on the cake. i even sleep in my exercise clothes once in awhile, say if I get to bed a liitle late--saves me time in the morning.

Work out that grows for you

Many of us have a yard to care for that includes some lawn as well as flower and vegetable gardens. That has us mowing the lawn, raking, pruning, digging, planting, pulling weeds, all great exercise. You can grow your own salad as part of getting your exercise and get vitamin D from sunlight!

Walking to enjoy the flowers

I find walking during spring and summer is easy if you enjoy seeing the different gardens in your neighborhood with their flowers and shrubs. Each yard bring a new scent or color.

Jog on busy streets

I find that when I jog on busy streets, I am motivated to keep jogging. I prefer to jog outside. When I see others smiling at me or giving me thumbs up, I get even more encouraged. When I see other joggers, I give them an encouraging word or thumbs up too.
