Fitbit Motivation

I am retired,diisabled (wheelchair-bound) and 69 yrs old. For my birthday in March, my daughter gave me a Fitbit. At first i was tracking less than 100 steps a day. After recovering from the shock, i am now tracking 1500 to 2500 steps a day and once in a while close to 3000. It has been a great motivator for me--and i will make it to 10000 steps per day.

Treat yourself to a personal trainer

I decided to spend the money previously wasted on rubbish food for putting toward sessions with a personal trainer at the gym and to treat myself to proper workout clothing. It has been money so well spent and as soon as I'm in my kit and enter the gym, I immediately feel as if I'm focussed and mean business. It really helps my mindset. The challenge in front of the trainer has spread to my challenging myself if I go alone or with my husband. I even work in front of the mirror now, too!

Wii Fit

In the comfort of my home I played Wii Fit daily. I lost a total of 22 pounds and had fun doing it. It was a slow but enjoyable lost. It doesn't feel like exercising.

Just Move

Incorporate exercise into everyday chores,etc. I even do leg and arm exercises while watching the news. I limit my TV time to 2 hours a day. I am retired, but look for new things to do everyday emoticon , that will burn some calories.

Getting In Your Steps

To help get in my steps when I'm at work I take the stairs to use the restroom on the floor above, I walk for 5 minutes of my 15 minute break and 10 minutes of my lunch break. The steps really add up quickly.

Walking instead of driving someplace I need to go

I enjoy adding the extra steps if I can walk with a purpose, like walking to the store or library instead of driving.
