10 Tips to Keep
You Merry And Fit
Park the car far away
from the mall, take the stairs, eat lunch at your desk and walk
for you break instead
blah, blah. We've heard these ideas
for adding exercise to your days one hundred times before. Not
this year! It's time for a change! Tis the season to be jolly
- so how about some really fun (and a little silly) exercise tips
for this winter.
- Go caroling, but
instead of strolling and sipping eggnog between each house,
- Check your local
listings for a holiday fitness event. Many towns have a "Jingle
Bell Run" or a New Years walk.
- If you plan to
do some shopping at the mall this season - turn it into an aerobic
event. Fill up those sacks with goodies, walk with determination
between shops - you'll get in some weight lifting hefting those
big presents and some aerobic exercise just schlepping them
around the mall!
- Go to see the spectacular
lights display at your local zoo or park. Or stroll through
a neighborhood decked out with holiday lights. What a nice way
to take in the season and spend time with family.
- Take the frozen
turkey out on the lawn for some good old fashion turkey bowling!
- Go to a Christmas
tree farm where you can dig up or cut down your own Christmas
tree. OH - feel those arms burn!
- Rent cross-country
skis and hit the snow. If you've never been before - you're
in for a fun and snowy challenge!
- Play flag football
with the family. You'll discover muscles you never realized
- Try running in snow
with out snowshoes or skis. Now that's a workout!
- When decorating
your house for the holidays take as many trips to the attic
for forgotten items. If putting up lights on the house, forget
the hammer, then the nails, then the lights - by the time your
done you've climbed the ladder 10 times!
