Need an exercise idea to get started?

sip-exerciseIf you’ve never thought about trying to push yourself in physical activity, consider coming up with a specific goal. Then, go about getting your body in the shape to do it.

Many goal experts recommend making goals measurable, which usually means number-oriented. With that in mind, here are a few ideas to consider:

  1. Walk for 30 minutes without stopping.
  2. Bike 10 miles.
  3. Complete 100 sit-ups in 5 minutes.
  4. Do 3 pullups.
  5. Jog or run 1 mile without stopping.
  6. Hold a yoga plank position for 1 minute.
  7. Do 20 jumping jacks, crunches, squats, lunges or pushups during commercial breaks while watching TV.
  8. Take the stairs if you have 3 or fewer floors to go.
  9. Try 1 new activity each month – yoga, bike class, Pilates or something else.
  10. Go for a family walk after dinner 3 times a week.
