Keep Yourself Going

When you go jogging in the park and you're feeling as if you just cannot go on, look for a physical landmark (like a lamp post or a bench) and say to yourself 'If I make it to that tree, I can slow down' . By the time you get to that tree, you may find it easier to keep going farther down the trail

Walk the kids to school

I know I have to leave about fifteen minutes earlier than if I drive, but I get in a quick mile and my daughter gets a quick half mile to get her brain going too! It saves gas (always a good) and we spend 15 minutes talking! Win, Win Win!

Tired of your boring workout?

Dance!!! If you're used to do your cardio workout for 30 minutes, why not putting your music and dance for 30 minutes instead? :)

When I need motivation to work out!

I subscribe to several cheap magazines. I have made a rule that I will NOT read the magazines unless I am working out on my elliptical trainer. When the magazine comes in the mail, I immediately put it in my workout room where I won't be tempted to read it while I sit on the couch, eat a meal, etc

Doing the exercise in the morning

1-It's the morning so you didn't lose any energy yet! 2-You actually burn the fat you got and not the calories you just ate 3-Once it's done, you have all your evening to do something else! =) 4-It starts the day very well!

Do a little more.

Doing a little more each time I exercise. Add an extra push-up or set-up or squat or lunge to each set or walk or run a little longer. Or even add a new type of exercise to your routine.

Pedometers

When you get a pedometer, do not buy a cheap one which will easily reset to zero. Make sure to get one with a cover, so it will not reset itself.

Why I get up and walk each morning

People always ask me how I get up at 5:00 each morning to walk before work but the truth is, the handful of times I've slept in (or overslept!) I am much more tired and have much less energy all day. Knowing how much better I will feel for the whole day makes it easy to get up and get going!

Get active with something you love!

There are so many options of ways to exercise this day and age that people just need to get out there and try something until they find one they like and can stick with. I love how SP does not have a cookie cutter approach but gives freedom to choose, so what are you waiting for, JUST DO IT!
