sitting at my computer

When I am sitting at my computer, I set a timer for 50 minutes and when it goes off I get up and move for 10 minutes. This can get me over an hour of exercise in during a workday.

Walking

Instead of jumping in the car to go to the Post Office. It gives me an extra 20 minutes of exercise everyday! The return trip is all uphill! emoticon

When i feel like stopping

When I am exercising and feel like stopping, I ask myself, "what's one more minute"? Sometimes it's "Can you just do 5 more minutes" (depending on how hard the workout feels.) I can do this for just ONE MORE MINUTE. And then I stay focused on just that one minute. Eventually, I string the minutes along until I have completed my workout.

Take an extra lap

For me, I'll be more conscientious of moving, and I'll take the longer way. So if I get up to visit a co-worker, I'll go a more roundabout way to get to her or if I simply go to the kitchen for a snack, I'll make sure to walk an extra lap around the house before getting what I desired. Taking those extra few steps keep me going, motivated and pumped throughout the day

Raiding wardrobe for clothes that fit :-(

When I want to eat junk, I just go to my wardrobe and see the clothes that don't fit any more...I throw away the junk! emoticon

Not Really A Secret - Adopting those of others.

I've been parking farther out, working / moving faster when doing chores & housework, and being more mindful of not sitting so long without getting up to move.

Clean to Lose

I find spring cleaning chores that require a lot of energy, energy that I didn't have even one week ago. Great way to exercise and the pay off is a very clean house.

Summer Treat

When bananas get overripe, I slice them and freeze them on wax paper on a cookie sheet. Once frozen I store them in a freezer bag. If I feel like a little something sweet, I can pop out a slice of banana and it tastes like ice cream to me. Not many calories at all in a slice of banana!
