Getting in Shape With NO Gym Membership

Getting in Shape does not require a hefty gym membership fee.There are plenty of free resources, workouts, and plans to get you on the right track.Here are my quick tips to getting in shape on a budget.

Diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, bad back, etc. c.Who are you getting in shape for? i.This is the easy one… YOU! Getting in shape and staying healthy is the best gift you could give to yourself.So take this opportunity to say… I can do this, I want to do this, I will do this! Pump yourself up and get ready to Get Healthy! 2.Setting a Goal – a.Set goals that are realistic.Here are some examples of realistic goals i.Lo…

List of what you will need:
paper plates, water bottles, milk jug, shoe boxes (or any cardboard boxes) string, scissors, tape, black marker, orange white and black paint, medium paint brush.
*make sure jug and bottles are cleaned and dry
*Buy only small bottles of craft acrylic paint (around $1.00 at Hobby Lobby)

To make pumpkins:  Paint the milk jug, some water bottles, and the back of the paper plates orange.  Then use the marker to draw a jack-o-lantern face.  You can fill the jug and bottles with sand, rocks, or whatever else you have around to anchor them and set them out on your porch. You can use t…
