{link up} NWHW | FAVORITE EXERCISE


This week is National Women’s Health Week which is a week-long conglomerate of communities, businesses, health organizations and other groups that help bring awareness to the importance of women’s health.

I’ve joined Laura @ Mice in the Kitchen to help promote National Women’s Health Week. Each day this week, we’ll be covering topics such as fitness, beauty tips, healthy recipes, paired with giveaways and more! Be sure and visit each participant mentioned below to get their own unique insight on the daily topic.

Today’s topic: Favorite Exercise

People regularly ask how my husband and I remain fit, and I’m usually found staring back at them like a deer in headlights. Honestly, I’m not at my ideal body type after having 3 kids, but in the grand scheme of things, I suppose I’m fairly fortunate to still be a size small, or x-small in most cases. But before you hate me! – though I’m small in stature, I have lots of jiggle and cellulite and bat wings. We’re all in the same boat, my friends.

Only over brief periods have I been that gym junkie, and it probably had more to do with helping keep my friends accountable to their goals, as well as, share in the communal aspect of the routine. Otherwise, I’m not much of a gym rat. Or a lone runner. It’s god-awful boring to me and I’m very unlikely to stick to it for the long-haul.

I prefer to get my exercise through fun, social means such as family activities, sports, walks, philanthropic runs, and the like. If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you’d know that my family is pretty active – we mountain bike, hike, kayak, surf, wakeboard, snowboard/ski, swim, paddleboard, play sports, etc. This way, we don’t look at it as exercise – we see it as fun!

Exercise is highly beneficial to your health and your longevity. To prevent burnout and/or boredom, I suggest doing lots of different things, focus on having fun, and do it often!

// Aerobics // Ballet // Baseball // Basketball // Biking // Boating // Bowling // Boxing // Canoeing //  Dancing or Dance Revolution // Field Hockey // Football // Frisbee // Golf // Gymnastics // Hiking // Hockey // Hopscotch // Horseback Riding // Hula hooping // Ice Skating // Jogging // Jump rope // Laser tag // Paintball // Ping-Pong // Playing catch // Rock Climbing // Roller Blading // Roller Skating // Running // Skateboarding // Skiing // Soccer // Softball // Swimming // Tae Kwon Do // Tennis // Trampoline // Treadmill // Volleyball // Walking // Weightlifting // Wii sports games

If you go out, have fun, enjoy the activity, it won’t feel like “exercise” … but you’ll be getting fit and healthy in the meantime.

Make the workout the reward!

Do you have any fun exercise suggestions you'd like to share?
