Lazy Day Compromise

Some days you just don't want to push hard, so I give myself a break with a lazy day and instead of 10 minute miles for 30 minutes I will do an hour speed walk. Compromise helps you get to the next day. Or instead of a cardio class, do two yoga classes. Lighter exercise for longer time.

Eating

I found for me it is best to exercise in the early morning on an empty stomach. I drink one cup of coffee before exercise and eat my breakfast after I exercise. Being retired makes this much easier to do.
