Suck it in...

When you're running, or walking, or...whatever exercise you're doing, suck in your gut & keep it sucked in. Helps tone your mid-section & prevent injury, like back strain. Improves your posture & works your core. Try it next time you walk to the water cooler

Make workouts routine

You are probably in some sort of rut, even if it's only the route you drive to an from work. Make working out part of it. If you set yourself to automatically go to the gym after work, you'll keep 'finding yourself at the gym'. And once you're in the gym parking lot, excuses get a lot harder to come by.

Walking the dog

My dog also has a few pounds to lose so getting out and walking him everyday is motivation. When I see the joy he gets when he sees me putting on my sneakers, how could I not take him out? Then we both benefit. I have started enjoying the walking so much that I challenge myself to longer walks.

Make an Appointment

Plan your day and set your cell phone alarm to ring when it's time to exercise. We wouldn't dare miss a meeting and we should have the same attitude regarding our exercise.

CONSISTENCY

Some days, its hard to be motivated about exercising. On those days, I always think how much closer to my goal I will be with a minimum of 30 minutes cardio. Afterward, I feel so good physically, mentally and emotionally. Watching my body change for the better is SUPER REWARDING!

Exercise you love

Find something you love to do - don't just exercise for the sake of it and you will find that activity comes easily. I LOVE yoga and can schedule three weekly sessions with no problem because it is something I really enjoy doing!

Walk!

Walk Daily. I know that sounds simplistic. But especially for those just getting started, walking can be such a good way to get the body moving. Taking the stairs instead of the elevator, parking a little further from the office door, taking a few minutes at lunch to walk around the building!

Join a club

I belong to an outdoor club and as events become posted to the calendar I can plan my exercise. I even became a coordinator so I could post different events as well!

Pedometer

Wear a pedometer, count EVERY step from when you get up to when you go to bed. Make sure you are moving 10,000 steps or more a day!
