Giveaway: $25 Amazon Gift Card – 2 Winners!

by The Glowing Gazelle on April 5, 2013

amazon-gift-card-25

 

With all I have going on I find it very difficult to make it to a gym. But this doesn’t mean that I don’t fit in some exercise into my week. There are so many great exercise DVDs available now and workouts through game systems such as the XBOX360 or Wii and of course the ever simple exercise of just walking outside. While I love to run my knees don’t so I don’t push myself too much with that these days.

But the best way I’ve found to convince myself to take time out of my day to exercise is if I find something fun that I enjoy–or something that brings me the calmness that I need in my ever busy day!

This last week I started using a Tai Chi DVD and I love it so far. I’ll tell you more about it in next week’s re-cap. In the past I’ve had fun with the Zumba Fitness for Wii. That one can be easy to fit in because the kids enjoy dancing and jumping around with me, even if they aren’t doing the moves properly. Since I’m not spending money on a monthly gym membership, I allow myself to choose a new fitness dvd/game every so often.

I’d love for a few of my readers to be able to do this, too, so I’m hosting this $25 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway with that hope that the two winners will use it to find something that they enjoy that can bring some exercise into their week.

I started running a year ago and run at least three times a week. However, the weather in Colorado can be tricky! So, we bought a Kinect..and I love the track and field portion of the Kinect. It is hillarious to watch the recording of the sprint and the hurdles!

I invested in a few 30-minute workout videos (Jillian Michaels and Jackie Warner have some great ones!). If I know I’ll have a busy day I get up 30 minutes earlier and knock one out. It doesn’t cut into my sleep too badly, and then whatever else happens during the day I know I got some exercise under my belt!

Trish April 5, 2013 at 6:11 pm

I get on the treadmill as soon as I get back from taking my kids to school. Some days I do Turbo fire too!!
