Walk everywhere

I walk everywhere i can. to the grocery store, to school, to the bus stop. It helps me reach my goal of 10,000 steps without having to specifically schedule a workout time.

Get a work out buddy for motivation

Having a workout buddy makes me accountable not only to myself but my buddy as well. Since my love of running rubbed off on my buddy, she has come to expect my call at 5am to get her up and going. Those mornings I don't want to get up, I push myself knowing she's waiting for me.

Squeeze Yourself (For A Stronger Core & Better Posture)

Abdominal exercise you can & should do everywhere! Suck your belly button in tight & squeeze your butt in as if you're trying to pull up a pair of too tight jeans. Pretend the top of your head is being pulled by a string to the ceiling. Hold position. Puts you in proper posture & works your girdle.

Exercise Outside!

I try to exercise outside in an enjoyable place as much as possible. It is really convenient to have an elliptical at home, but that doesn't "feed" my soul the same way as taking a quick-paced walk in the woods or doing some yoga in my yard. Good for mind and body! :-)

Begin

Once I have started, I have the weight of momentum behind me. I'm likelier to finish my regular workout for that day. The most important thing is to begin.

Log your exercise right away

I log in to SparkPeople first thing in the morning and enter my exercise BEFORE I do it. That helps get me to the gym because I don't want to have to come back later in the day and remove it and lose those Spark points. Sound crazy? It works for me!

exercising

for me, regular exercise is the secret of my success. with regular exercise, i am able to keep off the weight i have lost and to not gain any of it back. i have so much more energy since i started exercising regularly.

Protein Shakes

Pick up a jug of protein (100% Whey) and chug a shake first thing in the morning and when your done at the gym.

Mixing vanilla with chocolate milk is my fav, water is just nasty with any flavor though.
