Working out – BLAH!!!

 

Yup – Exercise – this word makes a few people cringe, including myself.  But, I have noticed how down I feel since I quit and I actually started doing it again today.  I hope to keep up the motivation but if exercise just does not make you all excited – starting small is a great start – start with walking.  And not just walking on a treadmill or around town, changing things just in your daily routine of life, can help a lot!

Some examples:

  • Mow the lawn with a push mower instead of a rider
  • Park your car farther away from the store
  • Get out and rake the leaves (no leaf blower, that is cheating) and then jump in the pile with your kids
  • Walk the mall and window shop – make a few rounds, you never know what you missed the first and second time around!
  • Take the stairs instead of the elevator
  • Next time you are cleaning – crank the music and next thing you know, you will be dancing

Every little bit helps!

And, I suggest going for walks with friends, you seem to go longer when you are chatting with someone rather than walking alone!
