Keep to a Schedule

I find it's easiest to stick to my exercise plan if I make a schedule. I run Mon/Wed/Fri and circuit train Tues/Thurs. I know what to expect that way, and can't just tell myself "I'll do it tomorrow!"

Eating at the right time

Wait 3 hours after eating before exercising. (longer if you had a big meal) I read that if you exercise after eating your body will be focused on burning carbs rather than fat.

Just Dance!

When I'm bored I turn on my favorite up beat songs, grab my resistance band and make my own workout, just dancing around and working out my arms with the resistance band at the same time. Sometimes my roommate even joins me which makes it even more fun!

Return your Shopping Cart!

Not only are you avoiding doing damage to someone else's vehicle (or person), if you walk the shopping cart back to it's proper return slot, you are adding steps to your daily total without really noticing it. Walk to the cart return slot further away for even more steps!

mix up my work outs

I find I enjoy my work outs more when I mix them up each day. I may do aerobics on Monday and then on Tuesday ride my bike. My favorite workouts are those I do to music and with a friend.

Multitasking while working out

I spend a lot of my time in my living room whether it's for studying, watching tv, listening to music or whatever. So overtime My workout tools just end up there which works perfectly. Recently I pulled my Malibu Pilates machine right in front of the TV. A great Reminder to workout

Microwave and exercise

Sometimes when I put something into the microwave I use the time before it is done to do a short burst of exercise. Jumping jacks, steping up and down on the stairs, kitchen counter push-ups.....whatever. When the bell rings the food is done and I have fit a little more exercise into my day!
