Play With Dog

I find I often don't get exercise to fit in my time schedule now that I work 12 hour days. I spend a few minutes playing with my 2 dogs when I feed them. It only takes an additional 10 minutes or so and both of us get exercise.

like it!!

Keep trying different activities until you find ones that you like, that you want to do. Then exercise becomes fun and something you look forward to, not something you avoid or dread!

Be consistent - even if it means being inconsistent!!

What does that mean? Well, we all hopefully have some sort of exercise plan. Ideally, you stick with it. Sometimes though, circumstance prevents us from doing the activiities we have planned. But try to be consistent anyway. If your day calls for a 5 mile run and you're not up to it...

Dance the fat away!

I turn the radio to some oldies(I'm 23 but I Love oldies!) or whatever I'm in the mood for and I dance around the house with my dogs... they love it and it does my body good! I don't even feel like I'm working hard but my heart rate monitor says so and I could do it for hours! its also therapeutic.

Getting it out of the way

I put my work out on my daily to do list. Whether it is going to the gym or another exercise that day. Then I like to get it done as soon as possible so it is crossed off the list and it is one less thing I have to fit in.

Routines are vital

After maybe a month of doing the same or similar things, they start to become habits. And that's when the magic really starts: because you forget that it's a chore, and it just turns into something you do every day because, well, because you just do it. Like morning workouts.

Start my day with Exercise

I find that if I develop a habit or routine I am better at keeping at exercise. I start each morning with Wii fit and I find that then even if the day gets away from me I have at least had my morning exercise.

Just Move

It doesn't matter whether you're walking, working out at the gym or cleaning the house. Just get on your feet and move! I find that music usually helps get my feet moving. So turn some on and turn those dreary chores into a fun dancing workout.

Ab Ripper X Hint

I took my shoes off the first time through P90X. What a difference it made! When I did it a second time, then I added the weight of my shoes, and it was challenging all over again.

Meet with a personal trainer

I joined a gym. The best part is that as I hit my plateau or get used to my workouts, I can ask the trainers there for advice and they give it FREELY. They want to see you succeed as much as you do!
