now, people usually don't spare time to do exercise, just because that they are so busy ,there is really little chance for them to do it.but now, i want to introduce to you a most time-saving way to keep fit. that is keep walking as quickily as possible for twenty minutes once in a week and do some lifting and strecthing movement every other two days for about ten minutes. there is nothing more important than your health, friends! wish all of you healthy!

Your system sounds like a good one and I agree that simple, consistent forms of exercise are way healthier than stopping and starting. My program is like yours I think it it is a good idea to combine stretching with some aerobic activity like swift walking. Keeping muscles strong through strength training is a wonderful combination. I like to do yoga, Pilates and general stretching and have a mini gym at home that has weights, a universal system, free weights and a stationery bike and there is no excuse NOT to do it...although I do find some! (laugh) However I feel so much better when I do keep in shape that even when I don't always keep it up I eventually return to it when my body lets me know that it needs more than I am giving it. Another thing that keeps me motivated in my walking program is using a pedometer so that I can strive to reach those famous 10,000 steps that are recommended every day. Raia

i have to admit that you really love your body, and your system is excellent, especially that you use a pedometer to motivate yourself .i also want to ask if you listen to some music when doing exercise,because every time i play some music i begin to move my body unconciously .that is really a good way to motivate me. wish you always have a sound body!

I do not go to gym for exercise often; I tried to exercise regularly of at least 3 days a week during lunch time at my company clubhouse, but was not successful due to my work schedule. Most of the time if I exercise, I play sport like tennis to get fit. I have another set of exercise by walking 10,000 steps a day as my target. I used a pedometer to keep track of my steps. On an average, I made about 7,000 steps, and I will walk around the house to make the numbers.
