TV Time

Instead of plopping on the couch to watch my favorite shows at night, I watch from my treadmill. I walk during the show and run during the commercial breaks. emoticon

Using my Bike to Run Errands

If I need to run to the store for something small, I strap on my backpack and ride my bike to the store instead of driving the car. emoticon

Exercise FIRST!

When my child takes her nap, exercise comes 1st. No excuses. No laundry, no dishes, no meal prep. EXERCISE! The to do list must come 2nd, without fail. No one can do my workout for me, and when I get to those other things I have more energy and feel better about doing them.

Jumping Jacks in the Restroom

Each time I get up from my desk to use the restroom, if the room is empty I go to the largest stall and do 30 jumping jacks. Because I'm drinking so much water, I go fairly often, and it gives me lots of opportunities to sneak in exercise and rev up my metabolism.

Using a Game System

I use the Wii to exercise. Specifically, the boxing. It's a great work out.

Get a partner

My running partner Dave is my biggest secret. I look forward to chatting with him, so going running is less of a chore. emoticon

Nike + iPod

I like to run outside but it seems like I'm running so much slower than on a treadmill. Nike + iPod keeps track of my pace, time, calories and distance traveled while playing my favorite music. Turns out I wasn't running any slower after all. The best part is, you can use it with any running shoe.
