Fitness for a Busy DayLooking to start a new fitness program, but don't know how to fit it into your schedule? You won't believe how much exercise time is actually "in" your day. Here are three easy, basic things you can do to help get 30-60 minutes of exercise each day.
- Walk! When you go out to the supermarket, post office, or even out to eat, park far away because all of those extra steps really add up!
- Make the most of your "down time." Do leg lifts while talking on the phone or put a stationary bike in front of the television. Jog in place while waiting for the oven timer to go off or that pot of water to boil for dinner.
- Do a little bit of housework. Vacuuming, sweeping, and raking all work your arm and leg muscles. Just 10 minutes of each can burn almost 200 calories and you just added a half hour of exercise to your day -- and your house will look great!
