Ladies, as we get older, we need to increase our exercise just to maintain a healthy weight. Since most of us lead busy lives with work, taking care of children, and managing a home, it’s not always easy to find time to hit the gym. It’s time to get creative. By following these sneaky ways to exercise more, you’ll look and feel your best.
Once you’re out of bed, lace up your walking shoes. While the family is getting ready to face the day, start walking up and down the hall. If the children wake up, have them walk with you. What kid doesn’t need to burn off some nervous energy?
Use Every Venue
Trips to the grocery store, mall, or doctor’s office all provide sneaky ways to exercise more. Go down each aisle at the grocery store, even if what you’re buying is at the checkout counter. Park further away from the door to get even more steps.
Walking around the mall with a friend lets you browse in all the shops, while getting in your daily quotient of exercise. It’s also a fun way to get in some people watching.
Most doctor’s offices have a good sized parking lot. Arrive a little early, and take a few laps around the parking lot. If the office is not on the first floor, take the stairs instead of the elevator.
As you follow these sneaky ways to exercise more, you’ll not only look and feel better, but you’ll still have time to do the things that you enjoy.
