I have found a really easy way to get a bit more exercise into my days. I set myself an exercise goal - to reach 10,000 steps per day. This I have found, is easily achievable on gym days.
The problem is on my non-gym days. 10,000 steps is a lot when you aren't moving much or going anywhere! I didn't fancy walking up and down the stairs for hours, or leaping around everyday doing a workout video. I know they work, but every day?? Really??
I wanted to just do a few minutes regularly and then it hit me - get up and do something whilst the adverts are on, or just in between programmes if you are watching something on the beeb!
It doesn't matter what you do, so long as you move - put the washing away, put some washing on, dance around like a lunatic! Whatever you feel like - its only for 3 minutes max!! Put some effort in and give it some welly - we can all manage 3 min bursts!!
And the best bit? I am hitting my target steps every day! The scales are showing the difference its making. How simple is that? Result :)
