8/13/12 - Paula's Exercise/Eating Journal: Thursday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 13. August 2012 20:46

In previous blogs we've talked about finding non-conventional exercises.  I've thought of some fun ways to exercise 'outside the box'.  Try creating a circuit workout on your kids play equipment or at a park(push ups against the play gym, triceps dips, or push ups against a play gym or a park bench).

If you are highly coordinated, try in line skating (I strongly encourage a full set of pads and a helmet- I speak only from experience here!).

Take a wooded hike.  Summer is a great time to bond with nature and workout at the same time.

Try jumping on a trampoline.  The other day, I jumped for 15 minutes with my kids, and I felt completely wiped.  What an amazing cardio workout that was!

Just be sure when your working out outside you keep drinking a lot of water, and watch for signs of heat exhaustion and dehydration. If you notice any of the symptoms described in this article, go into an air conditioned area.  keep drinking water ( maybe add a pinch of salt to the H2O), or...run through a sprinkler.
