Share the exercise tips and workout ideas that have worked for you.
Fitness flashcards: If you are looking for a way to spend more time with your kids, help them with homework, and exercise, this tip could be for you! You could do this with any subject really. You ask your kid questions and for every right answer...
If you aren't very social (or are embarassed), check out the gym at different times during the week. Husband and I avoided the gym on weekend nights because we felt we needed a break. Little did we realize: everyone else apparently does too. No one's there! All machines are open and more intimate.
To make the hours go by faster, I have started downloading Audio Books for free from my library website. Now I can keep up on my reading and get my exercise in at the same time.
I'm not an early bird, so working out in the morning just isn't going to happen and I don't force it. I work out in the evening and then shower in the evening, too.
I have found not to wait on others. Lots of times they don't show. Think I do this for myself with or without others.
Pick a week, and for the whole week, do all of your cardio in chunks of ten minutes. No long walks or 30 minute videos for the whole week. What this does is train you to be able to find ways to be active when you are really short on time.
Quite by accident, one stressed day I bit into dark chocolate and had my best workout ever up to that point. On many different occasions I confirmed that Dark chocolate gives an amazing boost for the best cardio workout ever! 25g of 60-70% cocoa dark chocolate and I can work at 70% MHR for an hour!
My husband and I take walks after the kids go to bed. Besides the exercise, the alone time has made our marriage stronger.
We are going to cyber walk our way to each others cities (no address, private) A team member has the first city we will be starting from and she will take all of our mileage weekly and put it together to be on the move!! I think this is going to be fun and will remind us to keep on walking!!
