Indoor Workout

My preferred method of exercise is walking outside.  Gets me and the kiddo’s some fresh air, and pushing a stroller helps up the calories burned.  I also enjoy kicking around the soccer ball with my family, bike riding, and running around the playground.  Unfortunately, living in Jersey, the weather isn’t always so great for an outside workout, so here’s a list of some of indoor alternatives.  *Average calories burned based on 1/2 hour activity, and 130lb woman.  

  • Just Dance for Wii-190
  • Yoga for beginners-74
  • Belly Dancing-133
  • Hacky Sack-118
  • Jump rope-236
  • Ping Pong-118
  • Wii bowling-86
  • Wii tennis-118
  • Zumba-259
  • Kickboxing-298
  • Cleaning-74 (bonus, the house ends up looking great!)

There are many other inside exercises you can do with weights, an exercise ball, and some other low-cost equipment.  The important thing is to have your body moving, and not skipping a workout because of bad weather!  For a post-workout meal, here’s a recipe for my Peanut Butter Breakfast Bars!

Peanut Butter Breakfast Bars

2 Cups Old Fashioned Oats

¼ cup Sunflower kernels

6 chopped pitted dates

¼ cup cocktail peanuts

¼ cup wheat germ

3 scoops About Time Vanilla Whey protein powder

1 cup smooth peanut butter

½ cup sugar free pancake syrup

Mix all ingredients in a bowl until they start forming a ball.  Add more syrup a drizzle at a time if it does not seem sticky enough.  Spray bottom and sides of a 9×9 pan, and press mixture evenly into pan using wax paper.  Refrigerate 2 hours.  Cut into 12 equal bars, and store in fridge in an airtight container.
