I get up at 5.30 and jump on my treadmill for 30 mins before I have breakfast and get the kids ready for school.

Dancing in the office

I shut my office door and dance to a favorite song at least twice a day. I try and pick a song that is at least three minutes long.

Throwing the ball with the dog

If your dog likes when you throw the ball like mine does then here's an idea I found out today.

Lunges and Squats While Taking a Smoke Break

Okay, I'm bad . . . I smoke. But, whenever I go outside to smoke, I get in 10-20 lunges and 10-15 squats. Gets my heart rate and respiration up. My knees are getting stronger. The gorgeous weather we're having here in Houston lately makes it a real pleasure! If it's raining, there is a covered area that I can do my lunges and squats in.

Wall push-ups

Wall push-ups are a good way to get more upper-body exercise when you may not have time for floor push-ups, or maybe you're not so great at floor push-ups. They benefit chest, shoulders, arms/triceps, and core muscles. Step back just a little (safely) to "lean into the wall" more, and make the push-ups a bit more challenging. If you need to protect a wall from natural oil from your hands, try wearing non-slip or rubber gloves.

Bathroom walk

I always choose the furthest bathroom away from my office so I have an excuse to get in at least 5 more minutes of walking in my day! And drinking lots of water helps, because then I have to go every 30 mins! That's a lot extra walking!

Exercise Goals! (Running for me)

Setting and reaching CONCRETE goals is the most motivating for me in my fitness and weight loss journey. Since I have a concrete date to run my first 5k, and a concrete path to get there using couch to 5k programs, it has been a HUGE motivation boost now that I have been on the path to reaching my goals the past few weeks. Plus exercise you KNOW you've done it or not, weight loss is sometimes a crap-shoot certain times with plateaus and such. emoticon
