Build exercise into everything

My schedule can get very crazy, so I try to build exercise into everything I do. I walk to do errands, park at the opposite end of the mall from where I'm going ( and walk through the mall, quickly so I'm not tempted by window shopping). If I'm standing in line I do small ab exercises -- isolations and isometrics, so that people don't notice. If I'm out with the children, we run around. Add it all up and it's about 2 hours of activity. Not bad for someone who "doesn't have time to exercise".

Little ways to exercise

I am trying to sit taller and hold in my stomach while sitting at my work desk. Just a little way to incorporate some exercise throughout the day.

shoes in car

This summer, I started to keep a pair of tennis shoes in my car. That way, if I ever want to go for a walk and don't have the right shoes with me, there's a pair available in my car.

Stand up Straight!

I can still hear my mother saying that to me 50 years ago! But I've learned that concentrating on good posture- engaging your core muscles- actually helps burn a few extra calories and boosts metabolism. It's such an easy way to exercise as you go through your daily activities. Suck it in! emoticon

Find an exercise you love...

Don't jump in to an exercise program that you don't love. If it feels like a chore, try something else!

Wall push-ups

Wall push-ups are a good way to get more upper-body exercise when you may not have time for floor push-ups, or maybe you're not so great at floor push-ups. They benefit chest, shoulders, arms/triceps, and core muscles. Step back just a little (safely) to "lean into the wall" more, and make the push-ups a bit more challenging. If you need to protect a wall from natural oil from your hands, try wearing non-slip or rubber gloves.

Dancing in the office

I shut my office door and dance to a favorite song at least twice a day. I try and pick a song that is at least three minutes long.
