Take Public Transportation

I took the bus for the first tim in my life about a month ago. I noticed that most of the people who took public transportation seemed in good shape. For me, the best form of exercise is when you do it without knowing it. There's lots of walking (or running) involved in taking public transpo!

Add Music to the Spark Videos

I'm a big fan of coach Nicole's workout vids, but to keep my energy up I play some upbeat/high paced music. It keeps me from getting bored of repeating the same videos over and over

Make it Social!

My sister-out-law (ex-sister-in-law, still amazing friend) try to take a long walk both days every weekend. We set a goal for 6-8 miles each day that we finish in under two hours, at a 4.5 or more mph speed. We talk, laugh, and catch up so much the time flies as the heart rate elevates.

Rolling out of bed workout

Do you find it hard to schedule your stretching or a morning routine? I typically do my 12 - 20 minute routine before I even get out of bed. The firm support of the mattress is good for my aching back. Unless I am tight for time, I do this daily routine: crunches, bridges and wrist weights, etc.

Just 5 minutes

When I was first starting to exercise, I coaxed myself with the promise, "Just 5 minutes! If you hate it, you can stop. Just 5 minutes." Knowing I was "allowed" to stop made me more consistent. Years later, it still works on days when I don't feel like it - and those are few and far between!

Running - Take a Break!

I am training for a half marathon and I have read that it is actually just as important NOT to run a few days a week as it is TO run...so take a break! :)
