Exercise anytime

Getting in a little extra - while heating up my lunch at work, I'll do leg abductions or adductions; when brushing my teeth, same thing. Also, I sit at a desk, so butt crunches, stand and do push ups off my desk, anything to keep the blood flowing and get that little extra in.

Early Workout

I try to work out firstthing when I wake up. I eat a piece of fruit to keep my sugar up and then head to the gym. I read that this helps because you are burning more fat and not something that you ate earlier in the day

Packing Exercise into a BUSY Day!

When my schedule gets so packed that I can't stop for a minute, I find that I can get in a good twenty to thirty minutes of fitness while dinner is cooking. Coarsely chop some potatoes and assorted veggies and pop in the oven to roast for a nutritious tasty meal when you're finished working out.

Walk when you can

I try to burn extra calories every chance I can get. If i need to go to the bank or post office I'll walk instead of driving. Also try parking futher away when I shop. It saves the car from getting dinged and adds some more activity to my day!

ME TIME

I would always put off my exercise because there was always something to do for everyone else. Take an hour out of the day as "Me Time". Time to make yourself look and feel better. emoticon

AM workouts

I never considered myself a morning person, but I've trained myself to get up earlier and get my workout in before I go to work. That means I have to get up at 4:30 am to get in my strength training and half of my cardio before work...that's early but it gets my day off to such a great start!

Use Your Drive Time For Good

I have found myself holding in my stomach while I drive to work. I feel like I can use the time to strengthen my core stomach muscles and posture. I have to be there for 30 minutes...why not use the time for something productive?
