A Brand New Exercise - Highly Effective !!!

Focus on your cheek muscles - just above the jaw. Now contract them so that they pull back and upward toward the ears. Contract hard enough so that your lips part slightly and your teeth show. Outstanding. Keep that up.

Drink!

A couple of times when my weight has stalled, getting religious about my water intake and pushing it to 10 cups a day got things moving again. Also, adding brewed green tea helps give you something to sip on and boosts metabolism with many antioxidants as well.

Short on time?

Do sets of 10 every now and then. Making supper? Drop and do 10 pushups. Folding laundry. Do squats while you fold. Talking on the phone? Do lunges. Whenever you have a free second do a set of 10 somethings...or 20 if you feel like doing more.

Just Dance

I love to play Just Dance on the Wii. By playing it for an hour I forget that I'm even exercising...just having a blast! In an hour of hard play, I can burn between 500 and 600 calories...playing video games! emoticon

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.

Dance

Ok...so I am new here, but,...I blast some music and pretend I am clubbing (which I have actually never done). I dance as though everyone is watching and I am a world class dancer like Fergi or Pink. Even as I am out of breath, I think, but the world is watching! They bought tickets to this show!

My SparkSummary Calendar

I was just told about this feature and it rocks. It tracks your daily calories, fitness minutes & SparkPoints. You can look back at a week or a month and see how you made out. You get gold stars on the days you made your calorie target. Now I want to count gold stars and maybe make them a goal!

Even If I Don't Feel Like Working Out...

If I have a day where I get home and I am just beat from the day, I still exercise.

I will watch my favorite TV show and during commercials I will get up and start stretching my body out. Then when the show comes back on I rest and when the next commercial comes on I will do lunges, then rest. Next commercial I will do a few pushups and stretch again.

Something it better than nothing at all!

5 minutes

Some mornings I dread a workout. I tell myself I should get dressed and go anyway if I do five minutes it is 5 minutes more than I wanted to. Usually after 5 minutes I am committed to finishing the workout. Sometimes you have to take life 5 minutes at a time.
