Five Thing Friday ~ Five Favorite Ways to Stay Active


Each Friday, here at Prism we will be tackling a very important topic… of sorts.  Five Thing Friday…  The topic will change each week, so be sure to check back.  We encourage you to comment with your own Five Things!

Topic: Five Favorite Ways to Stay Active

We asked each of our reviewers to tell us about What are your five favorite ways to get moving? Doesn’t have to be traditional exercise, how do you like to stay active?


Walking to pick up 7yo at school
Weights – yes I love lifting
Playing with the kids


Window shopping (wandering through stores)
Horse back riding
Physical therapy exercises


Let’s Dance – on Wii
Weeding – I don’t particularly like planting or stuff I do like weeding and leaving crumbly brown earth 🙂
Dancing in the Kitchen to the radio
Chair dancing while I’m on my laptop
Singing and Dancing in the Shower
(Got a bit of a theme going on there)


Treadmill (I read, listen to audiobooks, or watch favorite TV shows while walking)
Walking the neighborhood with my husband
Easy nature hikes


My dogs (walking or training them, playing with them – and yes, playing with two energetic pups IS serious exercise!)
Shoveling snow (really!)
gardening (exercise with a visible result, what’s not to love?)

Climbing Castles
Hiking Castles
Scaling Castles
Studying Castles
Discovering Castles


Spin Class

Walking my dog


trail walking
marching in place while watching tv or reading

parking as far away as possible from everything

About BrandilynRC

Brandilyn is a middle-aged (When the hell did that happen?) stay-at-home mom to 3 beautiful children (of course she is biased). She started reading M/M Romance and Gay fiction in early 2012 and was quickly hooked. In her first 18 months as a M/M Romance fan, she read over 900 titles in the genre (not counting re-reads), ranging from shorts to epic novels. She reads across all tropes within the Gay Fiction genre…. except Regency, she has never found a love for Regency. A native Texan she finds Texas to the be almost perfect… except for one thing, their treatment of the GLBTQ community. This blog is her brain child and she is happy to welcome some fellow GLBTQ supporters to review here and help promote equality (oh and of course fangirl/fanboy over their favorite authors and works).

  1. Five ways to stay active? I assume twelve ounce beer curls don’t count. :/

    *Try to keep up with the 3 year old.
    *Go to the personal torturer. . . I mean trainer
    *Treadmill – we belong to the university gym – it’s a big motivator when you see 20 y.o. olds and remember you used to look like that 😉
    *Walk the dog – she’s a hunting dog so she needs a LOT of exercise.
    *Walk to the Metro – although after today when there was no one in the train car when I got on, I might want to drive from no one to avoid the zombie apocalypse.


  2. Walk the dog; Ickle the Wonder Whippet loves her walks. Yard work; it’s a biiiiig yard. Sweep instead of vacuum. Yoga warm up when I feel like I’ve been sitting for too long, usually five surya namaskara. Wander from the laptop to the fridge and back several times a day. Travel with friends.

  3. 1) Playing with my godson;
    2) going up and down the stairs;
    3) going to the market;
    4) running to catch the bus;

  4. Playing with the nephews and niece.
    Sometimes walking to work (too long a walk sometimes for the morning)
    Walking home from work
    running errands
    dancing around
