TV Time

I am addicted to a certain reality show. I tell myself that if I walk in place, lift dumbells and stretch during the hour long show, that it is more than okay to watch it.

Exercise: The triple-whammy

A thirty minute workout is more than a thirty minute workout!

1. You're not consuming any calories during your workout.

2. You're are burning calories during your workout.

3. You will continue to burn more calories in the hour after your workout.

Exercise Anytime!

I decided to plan what I want to exercise, but do it when I can. I have already done 30 minutes on my bike, just by taking 5 minutes here and there. This way it isn't a huge chunk of time at once, but I still work out the amount I want.

get up and go!

I have found that exercising in the morning is my best bet. It's not always easy and I'm still struggling with it most days - but I am much more successful all around (physical activity AND healthy choices with food, beverages, behaviours etc) when I get up and exercise in the morning before work.

The 5 Minute Morning Rev

In The Sparks Book appendices there is a section showing exercises you can do without equipment. In the morning I do one set of those every day to get me going. Only takes 5 minutes and you don't have to have "rest" days because you are not doing multiple sets or pushing yourself.

Just Do It, and Just Do It Every Day

In order to form healthy habits, it is important to "just do it" when it comes to exercise. As long as you can start with at least 10 minutes of cardio every single day, you will find it easier to increase both the number of minutes of exercise and the intensity of exercise. Gradually increase amount of time and intensity, and soon you will "just do it" every day without even thinking (or complaining) about it!! You CAN do it!!

Making Rice

Instant rice and microwave rice is expensive! I buy a 2-pound package of regular rice and cook the entire bag on the weekend when I have time. I let it cool and measure it out in sandwich bags, one cup to a bag. Put the baggies into a gallon size freezer bag and voila! I have my own, inexpensive instant rice. Just microwave for one minute and eat!

More is not better

I learned that having more stuff does not mean better, less can be better, more is just more.
