You’re on day 6: It’s time to choose a workout weapon for your arsenal and get ready for war!
No matter your fitness level, there’s an exercise that works for you. Go with what interests you and what feels right. Maybe intense workouts like LIVESTRONG’s STRONGER workout videos, CrossFit or HIIT (high-intensity interval training) are your thing? Or maybe you prefer low-impact exercises, such as yoga or swimming. Whatever your taste, choose something and get moving!
It doesn’t need to be complicated. It can be as simple as running, cycling or good old-fashioned walking, which has many proven health benefits — and it doesn’t require any special equipment. Or ask any contestant who has appeared on "Dancing With the Stars" and they’ll tell you that dancing is a killer way to get in shape.
Commit to something you enjoy and that you’ll actually stick with. Consistency is key. Choose a fitness activity that you can incorporate into your life. Make it something that you’ll look forward to doing and that may even be — GASP! — fun. Nobody said fitness has to be boring. If you can have fun with your fitness, then so much the better! Just remember to track your workouts (and even housework) on the LIVESTRONG.COM MyPlate Calorie Tracker — available for your desktop and on iOS and Android devices.
