Stick to minimum 10 minute work out

I have an elliptical machine at home, that is rather stiff compared to ones at the gym. I make myself stick with it for 10 minutes, and I can usually last about 30-45. It is just getting thru the first 10 minutes that is the hardest for me.

Push past that barrier

I have been working hard on the elliptical at the gym. Some days when I get on and I think oh my I can only stay on here five minutes. I dig deep, push for 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and then I hit my stride and stay on for 20 minutes. I just have to push myself.

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.
