As part of the Unplug Your Exercise Challenge, I have made a few changes to my exercise over the past few days. My goal was not to use any electricity, which meant: no gym, no DVDs/TV, no music, no lights.
The only time I could fit in a workout was while I was cooking. Assuming that the lights were on for my cooking part (hehe), the exercise part was power-free. I brought dumbells down to the kitchen and used the kitchen mat for cushion. I threw in a few squats and push-ups.
I confess that I would have gone to the gym had I not been at work so late. However, I thought this would be a great opportunity to continue with the challenge. I bundled up and went on a brisk walk outside. My lungs loved the fresh, crisp air, and I felt so much better afterwards.
I highly recommend that you try a few workouts unplugged. There is nothing better than using your own body weight or walking/running outside. Your body will thank you!
