My spaniel is so lively i run when we go for our "walk" he loves it and even if i feel like i cant go any more he keeps going pulling me with him and i realise i can do so much more!
We have taken to walking to and from our local favorite restaurants. It gives us 30 minutes of walking and more time to enjoy each other!
Before I step into the shower I do those little arm circles. I started with 25, and now I do 150. I also do "swimming" strokes - and get my whole upper body going. Really gets the blood moving, and I can see those arms firming up.
I change up my exercise routine every month or so to keep from getting bored
I tend to procrastinate (avoid!) when it comes to starting my strength exercises so I've started putting the message "DO YOUR STRENGTH EXERCISES" on my Spark appointment calendar. I get an e-mail message of the appointment and I don't delete it until I've done the exercises!
If you keep your gym back packed and sitting by the door at all times - it acts partly like a reminder to go but it also takes away your excuses. You can even keep it in the car packed.
I've discovered that I love to do kickboxing and calisthenics much more than other forms of exercise. It's so much easier to stay active if you enjoy what you're doing. Find something you like to do rather than forcing yourself into something boring, and you'll be way more likely to stick with it!
How do you know you can't walk/jog/run/bike that extra few minutes or even just workout at a higher resistance unless you try. You might just amaze yourself,and give your confidence a boost.
By walking just a little bit every day, I start to feel better and it makes it easier for me to get back into my workout routine! After being inactive for several months, I started walking and after a week I am up to 2 miles at a quick pace and seeing the difference..
