Move it or lose it

It's not quite cooking or even food related, but how we exercise is very important in maintaining and promoting a healthy lifestyle. So if you are a regular exerciser, just starting out, or wanting some advice, here's your thread!!!!!

What can I do whilst still sitting on the couch?????? LOL
I am planning on starting to walk regularly, my problem is that the dog is a pup and hasn't worked out how to walk on the leash and I am using this as an excuse not to walk.(and its freezing)
I am making a resolution now: I will walk at least every second day.
Thankyou Kyles for the impetus to start.

Here my rules for healty life, nowadays...

1. Drink at least 3 lt. water for a day.
2. Get at least 4 meal for a day. 4 hours break...This is an excellent solution to lose weights.. if you leave one of your meal out, then your stomach starts to keep calories from your previous meals. But if you get 4 or 5 meal for a day, your metabolism works better and spend calories.
3. Do exercises (for me its about 1 hour for a day) but even if you are very busy, you must do it for 20 minutes at least, I think so.. I don't know you can do something that you like contains some action ...
4. I do yoga also...It relieves me...
5. And I quit to smoke... Please, don't smoke... ..

Thats all by now.. If I remember something I will come back..

By the way, mrsmac, if possible, could you please attach your pup picture to the site..

This is a great thread! I've been slowly working out again. Just taking it slow by going to the gym to do 30-45 min. of cardio, then I leave. Eventually I will include weights, maybe next month.

Right now I am riding my recumbent on a wind trainer. After I get some more pounds off and get the fitness level UP I will venture out in the the real world on my bike

I just walked the dog and the child for 30minutes and I feel GREAT!!!! I spent quality time chatting with my little girl, the dog got to get out and practice on a lead (she is improving by the way) and I got exercise!! Its a beautiful crisp winter's morning here, we actually have a light frost which is unusual, Erin had never seen frost and was having fun collecting ice off grass.
Thankyou Kyles for giving me the boost to do this, I feel happy and pleased with myself.

Well done MrsMac, it's just the beginning, wait until your weather improves. I have found it a lot easier to exercise in summer (it's pouring with rain today) even the walk to the gym seems better in the sunshine. It's weight training day today, which I don't enjoy much, although it's getting better, I still get a bit embarrassed, but hey ho! No one's looking at me, they're all too busy with their own neuroses to worry about mine!!!

The first thing I do when I get up in the morning is play some music I have on my computer and do floor exercises and then I get the more lively music going and do aerobic exercises. I try to do something that moves every part of my body. If the weather permits, I head out for a long walk after the in house exercise. If not then I get on the treadmill. The reason I do this when I first get out of bed is I heard a millitary guy say a few years ago if you want to get your metabolism going, you have got to exercise within the first two hours of getting up in the a.m. I figured the sooner the better so I just rolled right out of bed one morning and hit the floor exercising and have been doing it ever since. I have to tell you this really worked for me.
