Work out in the evening

I'm not an early bird, so working out in the morning just isn't going to happen and I don't force it. I work out in the evening and then shower in the evening, too.

Something for You

I have found not to wait on others. Lots of times they don't show. Think I do this for myself with or without others.

Ten is all you need!

emoticon
Pick a week, and for the whole week, do all of your cardio in chunks of ten minutes. No long walks or 30 minute videos for the whole week. What this does is train you to be able to find ways to be active when you are really short on time.

Dark Chocolate

Quite by accident, one stressed day I bit into dark chocolate and had my best workout ever up to that point. On many different occasions I confirmed that Dark chocolate gives an amazing boost for the best cardio workout ever! 25g of 60-70% cocoa dark chocolate and I can work at 70% MHR for an hour!

Two for the Road

My husband and I take walks after the kids go to bed. Besides the exercise, the alone time has made our marriage stronger.

Walking

We are going to cyber walk our way to each others cities (no address, private) A team member has the first city we will be starting from and she will take all of our mileage weekly and put it together to be on the move!! I think this is going to be fun and will remind us to keep on walking!!

Have Fun

The more fun you have with exercise, the more you are likely to continue with it. Do you like to dance? Do martial arts? Run? Bicycle? Figure out what you like and stick with it!

Keeping the Metabolism Going

If you’re spending lengthy time at the computer, get up every 30 minutes or so for some quick exercises to bring up your metabolism. I use my stair stepper.

Rest Day

I started off all "gung-ho" and felt I was a failure if I didn't have at least 120 minutes of exercise a day. Both my energy and motivation soon died! I've learned that it is okay, even beneficial, to allow myself a day to rest.
