Hiking the White Ledges

My healthy secret involves finding new places to hike with a friend.
Monday was a hiking day! John and I started out from the White Ledges Campground, located south of Conway, NH. The weatherman promised us a warm day, so we got up early, and prepared for that promise.

Through exercise that strengthens me

I have successfully loss inches in my legs, hips, waist and thighs. I can only conclude that it is because I am walking 30 minutes a day. Not only walking but doing HIT walking.

change it up

Your body gets use to the same excercise. If you use the eliptical everyday, your body gets use to that motion and you will burn as many calories. Try using the stationary bike. If your are hell bent on the eliptical try a new program.

Exercise before a meal

Exercising before a meal such as dinner has always helped me eat less. After sweating it out, you're less likely to gorge on fattening foods. It completely takes my appetite away & gives me a great burst of energy! Try it!

Workout in the morning

Get up an hour early and get moving. You can go to the gym or go for a run...whatever suits you. Try to prep anything you need the night before (pack your gym bag, organize the clothes you're wearing the following day, put out a quick morning snack).

Share Your Progress

Every night when I ride my recumbent bike, I share the mileage with my Facebook friends. It may not mean much to them (although I get a lot of likes), but it helps me stay consistent.

I've shared with them from day one, which was 2 or 3 years ago. I went from the first few miles to my cur...

Pick an Excercise You Love/Get Obsessed

Pick an exercise activity that you love/get obsessed with.

In 2007, I started taking bellydance on a whim and loved it so much I haven't missed signing up for a session since (Almost 10 years now!) Admittedly, there have been some plateaus with it throughout the years when I've started to bu...
