Working out without the workout

Quote of the day

People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and the New Year, but they really should be worried about what they eat between the New Year and Christmas. ~Author Unknown

Tip of the day

There are so many ways to burn a few extra calories without feeling like you are exercising. Incorporate more activity into your everyday routines like taking the stairs instead of the elevator, add an extra ten minutes onto your walk with the dogs or spend a little more time working in the garden.
Having a date night with the hubby? Go dancing or take a walk together in the park or on the beach. You could join a ladies soccer or softball team, take martial arts lessons, join a friend in her yoga class or take tennis lessons.
Play tag with your kids, learn to wakeboard in the summer or discover salsa dancing. Use your imagination and you’ll come up with so many new ways to be active and at the same time, have some fun, spend quality time with your family and make new friends! There are lots of options out there you just have to try them!

Joke of the day

Girl: I'd like a triple vanilla ice cream sundae with chocolate syrup, nuts, whipped cream, topped off with a slice of cucumber.
Waiter: Did I hear you right? Did you say top it off with a slice of cucumber?
Girl: Good heavens, you're right! Forget the cucumber – I'm on a diet.


  1. That quote is sooo true!

    I hate sitting at my desk all day because I feel rusty. But today I focused on moving more around the office and I feel so much better.

    When I get home I'm going to keep it moving. Once I sit down, I'm toast!

  2. I'm the same way Josie! I get tired very quickly if I sit down so I've gotta keep movin'! :)

  3. The stairs are a great idea. I teach a t a gym that is on the second floor, and I see my students take the stairs all the time while I take the elevator lol. There is no excuse for that.
