Eating Breakfast

If you have trouble making time for breakfast in the morning, measure and pour a bowl of cereal the night before and leave it with the spoon on top next to the fridge.

The visual will remind you, and if it is already sitting there, you will eat it, even in a hurry. All it needs is the milk!

Getting into the rhythm of things.

I enjoy putting ear buds in with some rousing music when using my Gazelle. Before I know it, Iím exercising to the rhythm, the heart rate is up, metabolism is kick started and Iíve met my goal.

Do it anyway

I often find myself using the excuse that I'm "too tired" to workout. I've come to realize that if I do it anyway, within the first few minutes of my workout I've got more energy that sticks around and typically I end up in a better mood throughout the day

Hidden exercise

While shopping, not only can you park further away from the store, but if you carry your groceries around instead of using a cart, you're burning more calories!

Easy Additional Exercise

I have stopped looking for parking places that are near the door of a store and started making use of the further ones. This way I get in some exercise walking to and from the store. This exercise is of course in addition to and not in place of regular exercises.

Walking at Work

I found that if I use one of my 15 minute breaks at work to get in a quick walk, it helps with my energy level from the next few hours. I even drag a buddy with me!

Exercise Early

I think getting my exercise in first thing in the morning is what works for me. If I get it done early, it's taken care of and I don't have to try to find time later in the day. I also think I get a better workout because I'm not tired. emoticon

Kettlebell Training - Love it!!

I've been wanting a kettlebell for a while, so I finally broke down and bought one. My favorite workout toy so far. I was surprise how much you burn in so little time! I did it for 25 min today and burned 500 calories, that's like 100 calories in 5min! Love that! Meeting my goal 5min. @ a time! Yeah!

Keep It Moving

I believe what contributes to my weight loss is the fact that I "keep the bocy moving." After each meal, especially after dinner, I get up and move. If I talk on the phone, read, wash dishes, even a few sewing tasks, I stay on my feet. emoticon emoticon

Change it Up!!

Changing up your exercise routine on a daily basis is a good thing! It will help wake up the muscles that are not used on a regular basis. You also dont want your body to get used to the same old routine, other wise you will not burn enough calories. Make sure your cardio is different every day!
