Tips to Getting 90 Minutes of Exercise A Day
This was posted at the bottom of the previous blog but I thought it was important enough to warrant its own post. While it seems like a lot, getting in 90 minutes a day of exercise isn’t as hard as it may seem. Also, take into consideration you don’t have to do the 90 minutes all at one time, you can break it up throughout the day and still achieve the same results.
1. Take the stairs
Stairs burn lots of calories. Instead of taking the elevator, hop on the stairs. Yes, even if you’re on the sixth floor. The higher the better.
2. Park far away
You’ll be amazed at how much walking you do when you don’t park near the building you’re trying to enter. Also, it’s a good way to add up your 90 minutes throughout the day.
Bonus tip: time the walking you do when you’re out and about running errands. You want to keep track so you know for sure when you’ve hit your 90 minutes for the day.
3. Try That Lunch Workout
Take a page from Tracy’s book and work out on your lunch hour (or half hour). A brisk walk or weight workout will contribute to the 90 minutes you need to make each day.
4. Get It In Early
Get up early and walk, run or go to the gym. If you just don’t have the time during the day to work out, get up early and make it happen. Yes, I recognize that could mean 4 or 5 in the morning for some of you, but hey if you treat exercise like you do work then it shouldn’t be a problem.
5. After Dinner Burn
Go for a walk after dinner. It’s simple yet effective and prevents your after dinner meal from settling on your hips, which, is an added bonus.
As you can see there are many ways you can get the recommended 90 minutes of exercise you need a day to not just lose weight and keep it off. With having a solid goal to work towards it’s much easier to measure your progress, and it takes the guesswork out of the process.
