Week 9 brings us to the beginning of March - how is everyone doing? For many of us, we are beginning to get spring fever and spring is just around the corner. Now's a good time to start thinking of ways to expand your exercise routines to include some time outdoors. Walking, hiking and biking are 3 excellent ways to get in some cardio. What other ideas do you have?
This week I have a guest post by Chip lined up for Wednesday and Thursday. Chip has put together an interesting spread sheet that he uses to track his progress and he's promised to share it with anyone who may be interested.
Chip also brought up a good point in his post. He mentioned that he gets bored drinking regular water and was looking for some ideas on how to improve the taste. One of the easiest ways is to use fresh fruit. My mom uses lemon slices a lot. She also likes to chop up a mango and freeze the pieces. Then when she's drinking either water or iced tea, she adds a couple of pieces of the frozen mango and a slice or 2 of fresh ginger.
Here's some other ideas:
- sliced cucumber
- lemons, limes, oranges, grapefruit
- fresh mint
I'm looking forward to hearing how everyone is doing. See you on Wednesday for part 1 of Chips post.
