If you missed the previous about starting exercise you can see it at: New Years Trial- Exercise More or Move More
Our steps to success so far are:
1. Plan & Commit to Your Plan
2. Start Small
I talked about increasing the amount of steps you do on a daily basis, if you haven’t done that yet start now. To help grab a cheap step counter at Amazon (presently $2.75).
Step Three- Lunch Walk
Grab your comfortable sneakers and spend 15 to 20 minutes during lunch walking around. Not only is it good exercise, it can also:
- Clear your mind from the mornings work.
- Give an opportunity to enjoy your surroundings (after being cooped up in an office for how many years).
- Allow time to talk with a friend outside of the office (invite them to come and walk).
Try doing this 2-3 times a week for 2-3 weeks. Then up the time to 25 to 30 minutes. Keep it up, it’s good for you. If you feel that you get bored, take along an MP3 player, CD or other music player. For a cheaper alternative to the Ipod, I got my wife a SanDisk Sansa (presently $44.95 at Amazon). Surprisingly the 2 GB version was less expensive than the 1 GB model. She loves that it can hold MP3s and also listen to FM stations (good for gym tv watching).
Work on Steps 1 to 3 and soon I’ll give you the next step.
