Roll Call March 2011 Exercise Challenge!!!


Quote  |  Reply

How much do you want to exercise a month? 

How can you push yourself out that door when the last thing you want to do is go to the gym? 
Easy - Challenge yourself!!!
Pick a goal and work towards it!!!
 

What is exercise you ask? 
It is whatever you do over and above your normal everyday activity. If you start taking the stairs instead of the elevator due to your wanting to improve your health this is exercise - if you park further from the door and 
walk extra - this is exercise. However if your work requires you to be on your feet running around all day - this is lifestyle and not exercise and should be added to your "activity level" in your account. I think its important for you to be honest with yourself so you will truly get the benefit of this challenge.

Some fresh sites on where to look to get some guidance and ideas for working out:

60 minute walk with husband and dogs... beautiful weather today in So Cal... sorry those of you back east.

550/1250

305/1500  Went on a nice 3 mile walk.

340 / 1500

40 minute walk with the dogs this afternoon.

I really want to step it up next week. Even though I am almost averaging 60 minutes per day, I want to exercise more and not go out to eat. I think I went out 5 or 6 times this week! I'm a very healthy eater but my cocktail calories tend to add up :/ Ugh.

Anyway, I hope everyone has a great week! Smile 

320/1750

Definitely behind, but I will kick it up this week. No essays due this week, yay!

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
