Have You Taken the Stairs Lately?

The toddler LOVES to go up and down stairs. In fact, he likes taking the stairs even more than pushing the buttons in the elevator! :o) And I love that it's great exercise for him and makes him tired...


Questions: Have you taken the stairs lately? What do you do to move a bit more throughout the day?

Be well,
Andrea

  1. Taking the stairs has always been a HUGE part of how I stay fit even when I am not doing scheduled workouts. I work on the 10th floor and always take the stairs down and also try to take them up at least once a day. In my old job I worked on the 3rd floor and used the ladies' room on the 1st, so several times a day I was running up and down. Movement is so important!

  2. I chase my toddler! HA

    our home has stairs so we are doing JUST that all the time!

    otherwise, I don't park up front at stores, don't mind walking.... try and take my groceries without the cart (unless there's a ton) for a little walk with weights... and I try and use my housework as cardio!

    I love how your bubba's shirt changed it's stripes at the top of the staris!!!! hehehehe

    he's a total doll!

  3. I am much more conscious of taking the stairs and getting in random activity since moving abroad. It's a cliche but it is true that everyone walks much more here (to work, to the grocery store, etc), so you just starting doing it out of habit. I really think it makes a difference!
    Your little one is such a doll!

  4. hehe The toddler is TOO cute! I'm not a stairs taker (my work shoes just don't cut it for the steps) but I'm more like Cindy - parking in Egypt and walking it out, especially at the mall!

  6. I am a stairs taker/far parker, you name it. With three kids, I guess I do move a lot more then I did pre-kids so just through day to day life, I am getting a lot of movement in!

  10. That is so cute! My almost two year old can go up them, but not down!

    When I was overweight I avoided the stairs at all cost. These days - thank goodness - no big deal!

  14. Thanks for the comment on my blog, Andrea!

    Aww the toddler is absolutely adorable! He is definitely enjoying the workout ;)

    I try to take the stairs if possible (we have stairs at home, does that count?). I try not to park really close (although other times I'm tired :P), but I get most of my activity via exercise.

  16. Awww that's so cute!!

    I love taking the stairs but I haven't had the opportunity to lately in lifestyle activities. Kinda pumped about university starting again as it means I'll be up and down stairs frequently to and from class :D

    Today I was doing squats and calf raises while reading blog posts.

  18. I LOVE stairs!! I love going to hotels with lots of floors and climbing the stairs instead of the elevators(I'm probably weird)!! I always take the stairs at work even though it's only two flights.

    To move during the day I take a walk over my lunch break. I have an office job so WAY to much sitting. I wiggle around in my chair A LOT!!!
