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!

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

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!

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.

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.

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....

Right now my left knee is giving me trouble and I can't walk very far or straighten out my leg. I bought an exercise bike that you can use with your arms, and vow to set it up by tomorrow so I will get some exercise in.

It's easy if it's worth it. Do something during every commercial break besides a run to the fridge. Try running 30 seconds down the block and back. It all adds up to a healthier you.

This Christmas season I am so busy, but really want to continue my weight loss. So I've been taking 5 minute breaks every hour, or as often as possible to jog or march in place. I set my timer and go. If I have time I go a little longer, but it's pretty easy to fit in 5 minutes. It's been working out great for me so far. Sometimes I even do 15 reps of bicep curls and other arm exercises with my hand weights when I pass them. It doesn't take long, but it keeps those muscles working and jump starts my metabolism.

Totally agree. I bike 15 min to work, take 15-minute walks on my breaks, and 15 min ride home, that makes a whole hour every workday!

I'm loving this site. The workouts are so easy and good fun. I do have a question if. someoneknow's the answer i'd be very grateful ; when your cooking do you loose weight. I know it sounds silly but i sweat copiously, even if just cooking? It makes no sense to me butiif its like a workout then that would be ok... I think :-D
