Starting a fitness routine can seem daunting. You've got to make the time. You've got to determine what exercises will work. Then you've got to do meal planning and figure out your caloric deficit. Agh! It's enough to make you quit before you even get started. But it doesn't have to be hard. Just make a commitment to get moving. That's where it starts.
And you don't have to do some complicated regime. Here are a few fun ideas to get your blood pumping while burning calories:
1. Dance! Turn on your favorite music and dance around the house. You can even get the family involved and make it a dance party. Make a playlist ahead of time for uninterrupted jamming!
2. Walk it Out! If you have a dog, commit to an evening walk everyday with you pooch. Or head out on your own for a walk around the neighborhood. Start with a half mile and work your way up to adding a half a mile each week.
3. Roller Skating! Roller skating is making a comeback and it's not only for kids. Older people are getting their roll on too! I will encourage you to wear knee pads and helmets, in case your balance isn't as good as it used to be. This can be a fun activity to invite friends to instead of brunch or happy hour.
