Missed The Gym?

This Sparked Me!

On days I can't make it to the gym I will exercise during the commercials of the shows I watch in the evening. Pick your balance ball, resistance bands, free weights, bosu ball...even your hula hoop! Have fun! emoticon

    Hula hoop is on my list of goals. I couldn't do it 50 years ago, and I still can't do it. It seems so easy to pick up during the day, listen to a song, and get a boost.

    I am going to try that

    I walk in place during the commercials. It gives you a workout and it requires no equipment except your 2 feet and motivation.

    I do this too, some of my favorite shows have 4-5 minute commercials. What a great 5 minute workout can do.
