Get a little exercise each break at work

I am like most of you and can hardly find time for anything. So I thought about something that I do many times a day. I figured I could make a habit of doing a few squats or wall pushups each time I go to the bathroom(at work or home). I get a burst of energy while boosting my metabolism often!

Grocery A-Go-Go

When I buy groceries, I do two brisk laps pushing my cart around the perimeter of the store before I shop. Then, I move as swiftly as possible down the aisles. Once the cart is full, I again do two quick laps around the store before checking out. This works in any big store.

Treat Your Gym as a Community

When I joined a new gym for a fresh start for this process, I made sure to introduce myself to all the trainers, the class instructors, and other gym members. Now everyone knows me there, so going to the gym is a positive experience. I never feel like I have to drag myself there.

Chewing Gum

I found that if I chew gum, it keeps my mind off of the length of time it has been since I started the eliptical machine.

Don't let Them Down!!!

One great way for me to stay motivated to exercise is to commit to workout with someone else. Whether it be a friend, my better half, a trainer or someone at my gym.....by committing, it makes me not just blow off working out because I don't want to let the other person down. emoticon

Get a dog.

There is no better motivation in my book than to see my dog's exuberance when he sees me putting my shoes on for our morning walk. Dogs need exercise, and as their steward you must walk them. Don't cheat the little fella out of his joy by just walking to the fire hydrant at the end of the block.

Make it a Personal Victory!

It's not just exercise - it's a personal victory! Last year, although I hadn't worked out in years, had never rollerbladed, I committed to a 26.8 mile rollerblade marathon in September with my (then) boyfriend and his friends. I was terrified! Hills scared me! I didn't think I could do it! emoticon
