  • I strive for at least 10 min daily of meaningful exercise, and normally end up with longer workouts, but 10 to 40 min. I've really upped my steps just squeezing in 10 min here and there. - 1/2/2015 10:14:45 PM

    I try to do a 45 minute treadmill exercise three times a week & a 30 minute stationery bicycle 3 times a week to keep my quads strong enough to do my treadmill exercising. I also have a number of PT exercises that I need to do ore often. I do exercise whenever I can depending on what my day looks like. I'm retired but fairly busy with family & friends as well as a meditation mindfulness class. - 10/4/2014 12:32:02 PM
  • i cant work out long and mostly in a chair, somehow i didnt realize you could break it down into 5-10 min periods. I CAN DO THAT - 2/27/2014 12:30:21 PM
  • I get in at least 60 mins per day of exercise with a maximum of 90 mins when my schedule permits. This is a good article read, especially for those who are strapped for time, or just getting back on track with fitness and diet. I too used to be one of those people who had a VERY tedious schedule with little time to dedicate to my health. Now my health is made priority and exercising has become my new way of life. My advice is to Start small and build upon that! - 11/6/2013 10:12:27 PM

  • I have just discovered 'Sparkpeople' & have finally decided to do something about my weight and lifestyle by making bite-size changes in my diet and my fitness. I have bought a Cross-Training machine and have for the past two day's literally forced myself to do 5 mns and I am now on my 3 day and getting into the habit of exercise.

    I am horrified though by how many calories I consume at breakfast! It's healthy but I need to watch the portion sizes. I am really feeling motivated by these pages and really want to give this my best shot! I am getting older now and really need to be more aware of my health... So here goes.. :-D - 3/23/2013 2:15:14 AM
  • This is a fabulous article! Initially, it's hard to find strategies to fit in exercise but this article really has helped me find time in my schedule for fitness. 10 minute chunks are manageable, are better than nothing, and really do add up! - 3/20/2013 8:48:17 PM
  • I am only 2 days into the Spark program. I could not get motivated enough today to exercise. I work late so I will not do it after work either. I like the food tracker and did not realise how many calories were in a banana. I have sworn off that fruit for now. I will stick to grapefruit and an apple a day. I hope to get 10 minutes on the stepper in tomorrow. I must start slowly, in order to be motivated. - 3/7/2013 4:02:46 PM
  • I am tired of being tired. My starting point has been to play with the dog. She is a mad thing that will run like crazy in the park or just up and down the yard. I can walk the length of the verandah down five steps across the yard to the fence and back again, and cover about 60 metres. All the while I am talking to the dog and throwing her toy across the lawn or up the side by the verandah. We stop after about ten minutes for a drink, and do it again...do it again... do it again... I don't have to worry about being out in 'public'; I can stop whenever I need to and I know I am safe and weather protected... trying to focus on the fun is heaps good. - 2/28/2013 7:21:49 AM
  • I have let myself go to the point, I am worn out after five minutes. I don't feel like I am accomplishing anything and it gets depressing. i want more energy...I truly do.....grrrr.... - 12/27/2012 8:03:02 PM
