No child left inside this summer. Get out and play. If you are in southeast Michigan you must have noticed that the summer days are already starting to get shorter. Enjoy them while you can.
Free (and almost free) things to do:
Go for a hike. This will give the family a chance to be together, and experience something beautiful, while getting in a little exercise. All you need is walking shoes and a water bottle.
Throw something. Grab a football, baseball or frisbee and go outside for a game of catch. It’s easy to do and you can burn up to 200 calories per hour doing it.
“The man who complains about the way the ball bounces is likely the one who dropped it.”
One of the absolute best cardio workouts you can get is from jumping rope. It is a fun way to blast 10-20 calories per minute. Wow!
What else can you do?
Take the dog for a walk.
Wash your car.
Swing on the swings at the playground.
Play tennis at the high school.
Rearrange your furniture. Better yet, go buy new furniture at Art Van Furniture. You can burn 400 calories per hour walking in our beautiful showrooms (yes, I work here), without burning a hole in your wallet. This weekend starts our super Labor Day Sale.
“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.”
It’s finally CRIM weekend. The CRIM offers walking and running events from 1-10 miles.
Pedal for Paws is a 10-35 mile biking event to support animal adoption. The event takes place in Warren, MI this Saturday, August 27th.
