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.

Stand While On The Phone

I started standing up in my office everytime I get on the phone. With a cordless headset I can move around too. I'm amazed how much less sitting I do now.

Don't stop for red lights

If you run or walk along city streets, don't stop to wait for red lights or walk/don't walk signs. Weave back and forth across the avenues or side streets. Keep moving shoelace fashion to keep your rhythm and heart rate steady, never having to stop or slow down.

Variety

I love variety when exercising. I try classes, machines, activities at least 3 times before making a final decision of whether I like it or not. I love trying new things. It keeps me motivated, moving and keeps me from getting bored.
