You can do anything for 10 min.

When I really don't want to exercise I tell myself I can do anything for 10 min. Once I start it I keep saying to myself I can do 5 more min. and then before I know it , my routine has turned into 45-60 min. I always feel great afterward so it keeps me motivated for the next time. emoticon

Spark People Stability ball

Keep a SP stability ball at work and home if you can. Sit on it as you do computer work. Always have it blown up so you can instantly use it. Google exercise ball on Spark and web to get core and other exercises to do. Esp. easy on my arthritic back, less pressure for me.

Always bring music

Pick music that keeps you hopping and make sure to add it to your MP3 player. Never go to the gym without it. Sometimes it is a great song that keeps you going.

Walk this way to a healthy life

Walking is easier if you have music with a good beat to it. I listen to songs where each beat is a step. I especially like "Roll it Up" by The Crystal Method to get me started. (No lyrics, just instrumental.)

Walk it off!

Often when I'm feeling bored or particularly emotional, I feel the urge to reach for some comfort food. Try walking it off instead! Take a walk, even if it's just around the block. Bring the dog or a friend. Find solace in exercise!

Tracking Exercise

I am sometimes a reluctant exerciser. But, if I am participating in a challenge and post it there or on my tracker in the afternoon, then I make sure it happens that day. I am committed to honesty, even if I'm not committed to the exercise.
