Keep it Very Simple!


You are more likely to stick to a program if it fits into your lifestyle already... can you take a walk at lunch? Can you join in a class that you already bring your child to? Is there a park or stadium on your normal route where you can hike or run stairs?

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.

It's the little steps that count

Even if I can't work out, well especially if it's a day I think I might not get to work out, I always try to add as many steps as possible to my day. I do not use a pedometer, but I follow these few simple things to add to my day, I park as far from the door as possible, I walk up every isle emoticon

Don't Think About It, Just Do It

It helps me to get started walking if I just put on some tennis shoes, wear whatever I have on, open the door and start walking down the street. Walk just 10 minutes from my house and by the time I get back, I've walked 20 minutes. emoticon

Dress for Success

Wear your 'best' exercise clothes, regardless of where you exercise. If you have only one good outfit wash it more often if needed. Get rid of the old ripped faded baggy clothes and wear something that feels and look goods and makes you feel like an athlete.

Just Play!

Every day does not have to be a full workout. Nor does it have to be a "keep track" of calories, steps, miles, etc. Just go out and play. Feel the air in your lungs. Marvel that you're breathing better. Bend and stretch. Reach for that frisbee or foot-, basket-, or soccer ball!). Be grateful that it didn't hurt!

JUST PLAY!

Treadmill

I just asked my husband to put my treadmill in the middle of the living room. Silly? Yes, well every time I plop on the couch, it stares at me until I get my butt up and on it. Then I feel good about watching my favorite shows and have so much more energy when I'm done. emoticon

Don't Be Scared of the Gym

I was absolutely intimidated to go to the gym, fearing that it was full of jocks who would just laugh at an old woman. I waited until I lost the weight and did four months of SparkPeople strength training before I got the nerve to join. I should have joined earlier! I found that people are focused on their own efforts, that there are other people like me, and the only people who don't fit in are those who are rude!

Walking on the Water!

Well, I hope I have your attention now! My favorite activity is walking in the water as if I was trying to run or ride a bicycle. I have bought a couple of water noodles and I sit on one just like on a bike and peddle around in circles or back and forth. It really works your legs and arms as you stear yourself around the pool. The water provides quite the resistance and even though you might not feel too tired in the water, when you get out of the water, you can tell the difference!

Is like watchen the news

Instead of watching the news I start my day off reading Spark people. I find that reading something new as well LEARNING something new benefits me greatly and inspires me to 'get going'.
