5 Healthy Summer Keep Fit Options

Day 9 of the Ultra Blog Challenge

I read this article today which suggests that we should turn housework into a workout. Now that the weather is warmer and days are longer.  I plan to convert the following 4  household chores into my summer keep fit options that won't cost me anything:

1.  Walking:  Now that I have the fitbit, I hope to for regular walks at least once a day.  On the days when I  don't have much shopping I will walk to the shops and back.  All that walking and lifting should be good for my muscles.

2.  Gardening:  Although I have a gardener, I plan to do a bit of weeding and start growing some herbs in a grow bag.  I find working in the garden very therapeutic and the fresh air and sunshine will be a bonus.

3.  Cleaning:  I am going to use my spare the time to organise cupboards, clean windows, net curtains etc. All the bending and stretching should be good for my muscles.

4.  Climb the stairs: At work and at home I will climb the stairs as often as I can. Again this is good exercise for the legs.

Apart from these simple exercises, I plan to eat healthy and drink plenty of water.

Do you have any more healthy Keep fit suggestions?

  1. The best exercise is the simpliest. You don't need much in the way of equipment, nor do you need a gym membership. Walking is the best! You can also do strength training using canned food as weights, perhaps 454g cans or similar. .
