Tips and ideas on how to stay fit… (4)

Ways to sneak in exercise throughout your day without much effort.

Standing in line at the grocery store, bank, Target; anywhere? Do calf raises. Lift up onto ball and toes, up and down. Do them until you feel the burn–no need to count reps. Rest a few seconds and do them again. Great for calves and strengthening feet. I do them bare footed while doing dishes or cooking too!  If you can only sit; plant feet flat on the ground and then lift up on to balls of feet.  Add extra resistance by pressing down on thighs or add a couple of books on top of thighs. Give it a try!
