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.

Sneaky exercise tricks

I always park FAR out in the parking lot, and count the steps to and from my floor, on my pedometer. Another trick....take the stairs , not the elevator! On my break, I like to walk the halls at night, (hospital). Can log quite a bit during that time.

Morning workout

I start each morning with a workout, even if it just 10 or 15 minutes. I have grown to love starting my day that way. Also, if something happens and I'm unable to workout later in the day, at least I got in one workout.

Planning for small change!!

Everyday I make sure I get at least 200 jumping jacks in, either leaving the bathroom at work, 25-30 each break or taking the dogs out while at home. And making time for the Quick Fire of the DAY spikes my metabolism
