Keep a packed gym bag

Having a bag ready to go to the gym makes the trip fast and easy. Stuff it with everything you might use- empty water bottle, gym sneakers, clean socks, workout clothes... stuff to shower with.... head phones/iPod.... Just seeing the bag on the floor inthe laundry room reminds me to get to the gym

It's all about options

What keeps me going? Lots of choices.
I have several walking routes mapped out for work and home. I have several (and I mean several) work out DVDs ranging from Yoga to the Biggest Loser "Last Chance Workout" and lots of other stuff in between.

Grab your helmet and hit the road, Jack!

I've recently found a health conscious, not to mention "green" method of transport around the small island town where I live - BIKING! It is so simple, saves me gas money and wear/tear on my car + all the health benefits of getting outside (fresh air :o) and gets my blood pumping! I LOVE IT :O)

I enjoy walking so much that I forget how long I've been walking.
