I lose interest in routines very quickly- but setting personal challenges with exercise keeps me consistent. I sign up for races to stay motivated with cardio- and plan new, challenging strength circuits as often as possible
I have arthritis and am obese..I do take small walks (20-30min) a few times a week but I have learned through physical therapy that stretching daily builds the strength of the muscles, legs, and core..and the best part of it all..you can do it at home while watching TV..and it feels so good! try it!
In our small town, the community centre offers a gym with a weight room and cardio equipment as well as a daily classes. Membership is only $50 for 3 months. Even if i go just once a week for a change of routine it is still worth it.
OK, you wake up and JUST DO NOT want to exercise....but you have a stationery bike, treadmill, eliptical. GET your phone and call a friend and exercise while you talk! The time passes so quickly!!!! I posted this cuz a friend on another team told me when I put that in my status....to post
