10 Day Countdown to Fitness: Day 4

Welcome to Day 4 of our 10 Day Countdown to Fitness!

I’m assuming that you have done the previous assignments from the first 3 days of the Countdown. If not, PLEASE go back and do them. They’re essential parts of this whole process. If you are serious about using the 10 days to jump start exercising for weight loss, you will not get the long term results you want and deserve without doing the previous assignments. If you skipped over them, or if this is the first post you’re reading in this 10 day series, you can find Day 1 here.

Starting today, I want you to ramp up the amount of activity that you are doing every day.   You have already scheduled a 30 minute block of exercise at least 3 days every week for the next month.  So the activity you start today is going to be in addition to that formal exercise period.

Tonight, when you’re home from work and sitting on the couch watching TV, I want you to stand up and march in place for 15 minutes.  By all means, continue to watch and enjoy your TV show.  Just get to moving at the same time your watching.  When you’re 15 minutes is done, go on and spend the rest of your evening doing whatever you would normally do.

Now, do this at least once every day from this time forward.  This is an easy, quick way to get your heart rate elevated and start burning some fat.  Try it, and I bet you’ll find that it doesn’t even feel like you’re exercising!

Be sure to march yourself back here tomorrow  for Day 5.  🙂

    I would also suggest jumping jacks and jumping rope (if your home has a cathedral ceiling).
