Dont let the POLLEN keep you inside..

The pollen is bad. I just take my Allegra. I just do my 30-45 minutes outside or at the gym and go on with my day.

Wii Active

Getting EA Sports Active for the Wii was a big boost to my exercise program. This software has pre-programmed workouts and it keeps track of the time spent as well as approximate calories. You should have the Wii Balance Board to use with it.

random acts of fitness

when press for time every little bit of exercise helps. Try running errands, or sneaking in a bit of walking while waiting for the bus or carpool. It may look stupid, but the benifits will be great.

Take an exercise break

As a teacher, I often have to bring my work home with me. For a while, I would think that I didn't have time to exercise. Now, when I need a break, the best thing I can do to help me regain focus again is to get in a little exercise: walk, run, take out the trash, whatever suits my fancy that day.

Walking home from the bus stop

To get my exercise into my work day, I walk home from the bus stop. If I transfer buses and walk home from the closer bus stop, it takes me 15 minutes, but if I want a longer workout, I don't transfer buses and walk home from there. That takes me a half hour.

exercise, exercise, exercise

It seems like when I feel the least like exercising (depressed/tired/stressed) I get the most out of it. I always feel much better after I've worked out.

EXERCISE AND CHARITY

A fun way to get exercise is to participate in charitable walks or bike rides in your area. Encourage your friends to walk/ride with you and make a fun day out.

Squeeze in the exercise...

When I'm studying, I pick up my dumbbells & work on my biceps while I read. I always challenge myself to read more pages & keep lifting! This also works with crunches, squats, or when using a ball! Definitely helps with keeping me awake during those boring topics, too!

Wake up and GO!

I've found that if I roll out of bed and go exercise I am very consistent. "Waiting till later" for me means never.
