Favorite Things: Gettin' Fit

I'm linking up again with Across the Hall in 2nd Grade to discuss my favorite fitness activities and some of the products I can't live without.

I always procrastinate going on a run but once I get going and especially when I am finished with a run, I love it. It is a great way to stay in shape and I also find that if I run around the neighborhood, I really start to know the neighborhood much better. There is so much to see! Here are a couple of things that I cannot live without when running.
I love my Nikes. I have tried other shoes and they just don't work the same way. I couldn't run without them. I love the lunar shoes as well because they do well for narrow feet, high arches, and bad ankles. :)
I also couldn't run without some tunes. I love my little Nano because it can clip anywhere and when I am tried of my music, I can just switch to the radio.
This is a free app for the iPod or the iPad that I just love. It gives you challenging workouts that start at just 15 minutes. It works great for targeting problem areas because you can pick workouts that fit the area you want to work on. The app also makes you feel successful. It keeps track of your workout minutes and you get little rewards when you make new goals. I can do this at home or at the gym. Here are a couple of supplies you need to do the workout at home.

A yoga mat.
Some dumb bells. I use either a 5 lb. or an 8 lb. weight.
The program actually recommends a medicine ball but I just use my kettle bell instead.
I just think Zumba is too fun! I love getting a workout by shaking my groove thing. My gym offers lots of classes and I try to do Zumba at least twice a week.
