I have a fragrance spray that I've always used after I work out.
Loving my pedometer as I follow my progress virtually on some of the world's most amazing trails. Every night I log my steps and view pictures of sights along the trail. I can walk around a snowy lake or feel the warmth of the tropical sun.
For the longest time I was trying to get my daily cycle minutes in by working out one time a day. I now leave my workout clothes on all day and break up my cycle workouts into 3 separate events. No longer do I experience a sore rear but I am able to workout harder at each workout doing interval training. This also gives me knee relief in between as well. Fortunately I work out of my home and own my own bike, which allows me to do the aforementioned.
Flex while your walking, talking, singing, dancing, sitting, thinking, EVERYWHERE! Flex, it really hhelps with tightening your abs and keeping them hard. I do not recommend this for a full workout but if you are like a lot of older women or younger women i guess, your excuse may be, "Well i dont have enough time to work out? I'm too busy?" Welll ladies, or men, flex no matter what you are doing because you will eventually make a habit out of this & you'll be workin ur abs. Flex your cheeks too!
Have a friend who lives too far away to meet you for a workout? Set a virtual workout date instead! Text your workout progress to each other, or connect via video chat. It can be just as effective as an in person meet-up to keep you motivated to get in your workout!
