yoga first thing in the morning

I have found that doing a yoga DVD first thing in the morning gets me energized and feeling great for the day ahead. When I come home from work I actually WANT to take a walk instead of being exhausted.

Push that Lawn Mower

I asked my husband to fix our push lawnmower... he asked why because we have a riding mower and he does the mowing. I decided that pushing the mower would be great exercise for me this spring and summer. Find your exercise where you can, it all adds up!

Pedometer

I clip on the pedometer first thing in the morning and take it off right before going to bed. I look at it during the day to check the step count. It encourages me to even walk in place in front of the computer to add steps.

College students--take advantage of the gym at school!

Looking back, I can't believe I never took advantage of the wonderful gyms and pools at the colleges and grad schools I went to. They were free, they were right in front of me, and I never used them. A serious regret!

Walk!

I'm a big fan of after-lunch walks - and taking the stairs whenever possible!

Get your girls night out moving

Instead of going out to eat or hitting a bar with your girlfriends, get physical instead. Go for a run or a hike, go swimming (and hit the hot tub afterward), play racquetball or tennis--the possibilities are endless.

Be spontaneous and creative

I workout 3-4 times per week and hardly ever do the same workout twice in one week. I make sure to add variety to my workouts, try new strength training moves, add jumps to my aerobic exercises, whatever I think of to make it fun. It takes boredom out of the process and keeps it challenging!

Peddling While on SP

Keep a mini cycle under your desk and pedal away while sparking! You'll be surprised at how many hours you'll log.
