Every little bit helps!

I love getting up and being at the Gym when it opens at 5:30 in the morning. I workout for an hour and then head home to shower and get ready for work. I also take my SHAPE UPS to work with me and when the weather is nice, I'll walk for at least 15 minutes during my lunch. Works for me.

Dance Party!

I listen to music all day (at work and at home) and I've decided that any time a song comes on that's upbeat and fun I get up and have an inpromptu dance party. I can sometimes swing it at work if I'm not too busy and no one's looking :) Otherwise I at least move around a bit at my desk! emoticon

Walking in the Rain

Who said to always stay indoors when it's raining? If there's no lightning, I say "Put on a raincoat and go for your walk". It feels wonderful, even if you get a little wet. And remember to splash in the puddles! emoticon

Sneaking in Exercise

Simple everyday stuff to do...we all know them; I just have to remind myself to DO them.
- When folding towels from the basket, I walk the towel to the closet with each towel folded...burn up more steps than doing one at a time. Same thing with loading dishes into the dishwasher, etc.

Heart Monitor!

I use a heart monitor to make sure I'm exercising "enough" and not "too much". It helps keep me motivated to make sure I keep my heart rate up enough during exercising. It's really made a difference!

motivation

I use to hate to work out hence the extra pounds. My secret is to put yourself first and never say no. when your friends ask if you want to go for a walk whether you want to or not go. you will like yourself so much better when you are all done and the conversation with the girls is so worth it. emoticon

Watching the Game

While watching the baseball game instead of sitting on the couch, I sit on an exercise ball or the floor and do crunches or other exercises. I can still see the game. So while my favorite team is playing, I am burning calories or strength training.

stretchy bands & resistance tubing

I love my stretchy bands and resistance tubing. I carry them in my big tote bag and use them when I have a few spare moments at work. I can easily do 10 - 15 minutes a couple of times a day. It's nice to be able to do at least some sort of exercise on a busy day.

Submit Woman!

Fitness, like finances allows everyone, not matter what shape they are in to exalt themselves to the position of expert. One thing that has really helped me was to quit being an expert, and submit to the plans and teaching of actual trainers. Especially ones that know what they are talking about!

Make an appointment!

I run with my friends EVERY Tuesday and Thursday evening. With it being a commitment, other things have to be scheduled around this.
