A couple hours of yardwork is an intense workout for me...pruning trees n hauling limbs. I feel it for days. I second the walking and dancing! It is nice to change up the treadmill walking by getting outside (and enjoy the summer while ya still can). walking is so low impact I dont have to worry about my knees, so I really like that aspect. Walking with someone is much more enjoyable for me.
i've been dancing regularly with my almost 3 yr old girl and must say we are having a blast doing that.
she looks forward to it everyday now and so do i.
she requests it even. I que up some favorite songs and then we sing n shake it.
Always before when I worked out, I did it alone. Including others (just family) has been a HUGE wake up call. It is no longer a dreaded task or chore, but something to look forward to. My days feel more fun and exuberant. I had forgotten how much I truly love to dance.
I hope you find some worthwhile activities!! Please share if you happen upon something. I'm sure we are all looking for more ideas.
some1 mentioned jump rope. I may just have to try that
