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.

Put yourself first

I find if I get up early and put myself first on the list by exercising first thing , as if I let it go , it is not going to happen, my day usually runs away from me, and later never comes.

Having a Daily Plan Helps!

Taking a moment at night to decide what my exercise for the following day will be helps me to stay on track. I am more likely to follow through when I have a definite plan in mind.
