We know you all exercise on a regular basis but if you’re having trouble making it into the gym, they’re are ways to help keep your weight down. One of our favorite things to preach to folks is to go walking. Walking is a great way to burn calories and keep your body moving. Why not take your dog or family or both on a nice walk after dinner. It’ll keep your metabolism going longer and help digest dinner.

Taking a walk when the weather is nice is easy but if it’s not so nice, even a five minute walk is better than no walk at all. Here are some tips for getting in some extra steps throughout your day:
* Park your car at the back of the lot.
* Hike the mall and be sure to hit all levels.
* Take the stairs EVERY chance you get!
* Sweep your drive or rake your leaves instead of a blower.
* Crank up your Ipod and get your heart rate up when you mop or vacuum.

It all adds up. If you walk twice a day for 10 minutes and try a few of these tips, you just may find you have an extra 30-minute low impact workout tucked under your belt for the day.
