Variety in Exercise to Work on the Mind as Well as the Body

I find that different exercises do different things to my mental state ... if I go to a vigorous vinyasa yoga class or at home, that humbles me and brings me down a peg or two, walking restores my confidence, and pilates-like exercise balances these two opposing trends ... ☺ emoticon

Recumbent bike

I purchased a recumbent bike..a schwinn sr23...and it has been one of my best friends...I can ride it anytime I want in the house...when it is too snowy or too slippery to go for a walk...or when I don't feel like walking in the rain...it is one of my truest friends and it is always there! emoticon

Breakfast

I eat 1 cup of cottage cheese about 30 minutes before I go to the gym. Then when I get back, I eat a half cup (dry) oatmeal, a half chicken breast and some berries. For me this seems to work!

Adjust your cardio...

Don't keep your speed, or resistance, the same throughout your cardio workout. Keep your body guessing. Here's what I do...1st - listen to music...2nd - adjust your speed, or resistance, to keep up with the beat of the music, and adjust it for each new song.

You can do anything for 10 min.

When I really don't want to exercise I tell myself I can do anything for 10 min. Once I start it I keep saying to myself I can do 5 more min. and then before I know it , my routine has turned into 45-60 min. I always feel great afterward so it keeps me motivated for the next time. emoticon

Spark People Stability ball

Keep a SP stability ball at work and home if you can. Sit on it as you do computer work. Always have it blown up so you can instantly use it. Google exercise ball on Spark and web to get core and other exercises to do. Esp. easy on my arthritic back, less pressure for me.
