Stretch In Bed In The Winter

Notice you are pretty warm when you wake up? Well, you could go ahead and do some simple stretches while you are still in bed, and under the covers. I like to stretch my hip muscles this way, because my house is not as warm as I would like.

plan to go everyday

my daughter told me to plan to workout everyday not just 3 or 4 days a week. if it is a part of your DAILY routine it is easier to stick to it than if you go 3 or 4 days. now i go 6 days a week and if i miss a day once in a great while..no biggie!!

Time Flies

I have a problem with the timer on exercise machines....they always taunt me!!! I have an awful habit of looking at them and dwelling on the fact that, "I've only been on here for 4 minutes!!!" emoticon
What I like to do is place a towel over the timer so that I'm not tempted to look at it and get discouraged. Time flies when you aren't worried about it.

Pandora Radio for music

I have a Droid celll phone, and this and some of the other smart phones have applicatons that can be downloaded, some for free. I downloaded the free version of Pandora radio. Yiou enter a song or artist you like and then it creates a radio station for you based on that choice You can give a thumbs up or a thumbs down or just do nothing when a song plays. You can create different radio stations. I have one now that has a lot of upbeat music so when I workiout I get variety but upbeat.

10 minutes

I know this is not new, but it truly works. I was not feeling good this week and still wanted to get my exercise in. I tried to do it in 10 minute increments. I did the elliptical, treadmill, bike for 10 minutes at a time and by the end of the day I had 2 hours in!

Perspective to get back on Track

If you got a traffic ticket, you wouldn't spend the whole day breaking traffic laws. So why would you blow the whole day over a slice of pizza? by Beth Donovan 2009

I grab my fat

When I want to eat something I don't need, usually a Snickers, I grab my belly fat. I reminds me that I already have a Snickers in storage.
