Walk while you wait

When I wait for a print job to be completed or a fax to go through, I walk in place. I can get in over 1000 steps a day this way, and if I "trot", there are cardio benefits as well.

Indoor walking track

This winter has been particularly cold, but I still want to get in my "power walks" - walking at 3.0 - 3.4 miles per hour (128-130 beats per minute) - so I have identified an open walking area "track" that is about about 40 feet long, from my living room to my den. So I pop in the iPod with my favorite walking music and walk for 20-30 minutes at a time. I can even do this while the rest of the house is still sleeping in the early morning.

Breakfast Burrito for those on the move

I eat a healthy breakfast burrito, made with 6 TBL of Egg-Beaters (equals two large eggs, with Mrs. Dash for taste): 45 calories, 0 fat, .9 mg cholesterol, .6 gr carbs. Compare that to 2 scrambled eggs: 252 calories, 27 fat gr, 774 mg cholesterol, 5 gr carbs. Use a low carb/low fat whole wheat tortilla, with 50 calories, 2 gr fat, 10 gr carbs, 7 gr fiber, compared with a whole wheat tortilla with 130 calories, 3 gr fat, 24 gr carbs, 4 gr fiber. Do the math, and feel great!

Stress reduction secret for success

I have combined two stress reduction techniques - meditation and spirituality. Every night before I go to bed I listen to the day's installment of the Daily Audio Bible. (I set a goal of listening to the entire Bible in one year. So far, the streak is alive.) I follow that with Yoga Nidra meditation, leading me to sleep. It allows me to reflect on the day in positive terms, plan the next day, and sleep soundly.
