Stretch In Bed In The Winter

Notice you are pretty warm when you wake up? Well, you could go ahead and do some simple stretches while you are still in bed, and under the covers. I like to stretch my hip muscles this way, because my house is not as warm as I would like.

plan to go everyday

my daughter told me to plan to workout everyday not just 3 or 4 days a week. if it is a part of your DAILY routine it is easier to stick to it than if you go 3 or 4 days. now i go 6 days a week and if i miss a day once in a great while..no biggie!!

Time Flies

I have a problem with the timer on exercise machines....they always taunt me!!! I have an awful habit of looking at them and dwelling on the fact that, "I've only been on here for 4 minutes!!!" emoticon
What I like to do is place a towel over the timer so that I'm not tempted to look at it and get discouraged. Time flies when you aren't worried about it.

10 minutes

I know this is not new, but it truly works. I was not feeling good this week and still wanted to get my exercise in. I tried to do it in 10 minute increments. I did the elliptical, treadmill, bike for 10 minutes at a time and by the end of the day I had 2 hours in!

Start the day

Best way to start the day is with a quick 5-30 minute walk. Gets the juices going. emoticon

Early morning Workout

Working out early in the morning, gets it out of the way, and you won't have an excuse later on to not do it.

Pomadoro- slicing the tomato!

I work at home, sitting in front of a computer.
One technique for better work quality is the 'pomadoro' where you set a timer and work either for 25 minutes then take a 5 minute break, or work for 50 minutes and take and take a 10 minute break. Use the breaks for exercise, get up, move, stairs, back yard, getting a drink. Just MOVE!
The pomadoro, working in slices, improves work output and can program in activity to an otherwise sedentary day. So SLICE and MOVE. emoticon

Cleaning Dance

I love to listen to music while I clean or fold laundry. Most of the time is is easy to just start dancing while I work. The dog sometimes thinks I am weird though. emoticon
