I used to have trouble drinking enough water each day. Now what I do, I keep a tall glass on my desk with a straw in it. I can sip while I'm working on the computer and end up having to refill the glass 2-3 times a day. Now, I have no problem getting sufficient water each day.
Sleep in your (clean) workout clothes. Then when you wake up you're ready to go!
I work out at home with several fitness DVD's, and keep a glass of water nearby, I manage to drink about 2 large glasses by the time the DVD is finished! Putting a straw in the glass makes it easier, too
on days that i dont get to go to the gym, or even days that i do i love to go for a walk. i take my ipod and walk two or more miles. it helps relieve my stress because im on my own doing something that will pay off at the end. plus i get to enjoy the great outdoors!
If you can't do these at your desk, make a 1 minute trip to the bathroom. Every hour do 1 minute of exercise. Do some jumping jacks; simulate jumping a rope, do some desk pushups or leg squats, or even do a few lunges. Try anything to loosen up your muscles and stay refreshed.
Getting up early is never fun, but getting your workout in before your day begins gets it out of the way and you don't have to stress over it all day!
WHAT ARE THE BEST WARM UP EXERSISES TO DO BEFORE YOU DO YOUR OTHER EXERCISES OR GET ON A TREADMILL?
Keep a stretch band in your office desk and at least once an hour, pull it out and do a few reps of butterfly stretches of bicep curls. It's a quick distraction and helps you get in some muscle strengthening right at your desk
Bellydance is exotic and burns calories!
When your cycling up that hill or finishing up on the treadmill and it starts to hurt use your mantra. I tell myself, anyone can do anything for (x number) minutes. It really helps me keep going when I might otherwise quit!
