ME TIME

I would always put off my exercise because there was always something to do for everyone else. Take an hour out of the day as "Me Time". Time to make yourself look and feel better. emoticon

AM workouts

I never considered myself a morning person, but I've trained myself to get up earlier and get my workout in before I go to work. That means I have to get up at 4:30 am to get in my strength training and half of my cardio before work...that's early but it gets my day off to such a great start!

Use Your Drive Time For Good

I have found myself holding in my stomach while I drive to work. I feel like I can use the time to strengthen my core stomach muscles and posture. I have to be there for 30 minutes...why not use the time for something productive?

Do it anyway

I often find myself using the excuse that I'm "too tired" to workout. I've come to realize that if I do it anyway, within the first few minutes of my workout I've got more energy that sticks around and typically I end up in a better mood throughout the day

Hidden exercise

While shopping, not only can you park further away from the store, but if you carry your groceries around instead of using a cart, you're burning more calories!

Easy Additional Exercise

I have stopped looking for parking places that are near the door of a store and started making use of the further ones. This way I get in some exercise walking to and from the store. This exercise is of course in addition to and not in place of regular exercises.
