Easy ways to add exercise to your day

Being active is a choice. You can choose to sit in front of a TV all evening and eat bon bons. You can CHOOSE to complain about being overweight but do nothing about it. You can CHOOSE to set an unhealthy example for your children. You can choose to drive around for 15 minutes looking for a closer parking spot. OR you can choose to be ACTIVE. You can choose to make little choices everyday that make a huge difference. Talk a walk after dinner, ride bikes with the kids, take the kids roller skating, walk the dog, take the stairs instead of the elevator, join an exercise class or group to hold you accountable, do jumping jacks during commercials, do 30 squats, 30 pushups, and 30 crunches while watching your TV show, hold your baby and do squats, run up and down your stair 10 times a day, play tag with the kids, go hiking, play a family game of baseball, kickball, or soccer. You see there are so many ways to stay active. Make it a goal to do 60 minutes of activity a day. It doesnt have to be all at once. You can break it up throughout the day. Just get moving! I promise, you wont regret it! :)
