Leave your workout clothes in plain sight

Every morning when I get ready for work I lay my workout clothes on the bed so when I get home and start to change; my workout clothes are staring me right in the face. This gives me the guilt tug and i'm more opt to workout. I haven't missed a workout since

Extra Steps

I work on the 1st floor of my building, but I use the restroom on the 3rd floor. On the way back to my office, I stop to walk a lap around the 2nd floor. According to my pedometer, this route takes me 600 steps--540 more than if I use the restroom closest to me on the 1st floor! emoticon

Alternative to post dinner snacking

Instead of reaching for additional snacks after dinner (which I love to do!!) I decided that when I feel the urge to nibble on something I probably shouldn't.. I throw in a little extra exercise!! I've been going for walks during the early evenings instead of snacking.

Pole Dancing as a workout plan

I have problems w/ gym commitment so I found an exercise routine that I love & can commit to. Pole dancing is the ultimate workout. you use all muscle groups at one time while dancing & finding your inner sexy! The room was filled w/ women (only) from all ages groups, shapes & sizes. we had a blast!

Plan Ahead

If you tend to get 'lost' at the gym, plan what you want to accomplish that day, or that week. Writing it out can help, as well, and keep a little notebook with you at the gym so you can track your progress as it happens!

No excuses!

Keep a set of running/walking shoes in your car. That way wherever you are you can get in some extra exercise. Also keep a towel handy too in case you get sweaty!

Dance Baby Dance!!

I found ballroom dancing not only provides a great workout, but it also can improve your coordination, boost your mood, and can get you out of the house. It doesn't matter if it is ballet, jazz, ballroom, belly or pole dancing, or hula it is fun and you are learning.

Keep toenails short

Sounds gross, but make sure toenails are SHORT before exercising. I learned my lesson after a day of skiing I now have to go to the podiatrist and have them stick a needle in my toe. I haven't been able to workout hard in over a week and I might lose my toenail, just in time for summer.
