exercise during `commercials

No time to exercise? The average commercial is 2+ min long on TV. Instead of heading for the fridge, exercise. Do squats, pushups, wall pushups, jumping jacks etc
On the computer. do these exercises or similar every 15 min

A little exercise goes a long way!

When I'm feeling sluggish and don't feel like getting a workout in, I tell myself I can squeeze in 15 minutes. Just a 15 minute walk. When I get on the treadmill, it often turns in to a 45 minute jog. The hardest step is the first.

10 Minutes a Day

I've committed to just 10mins per day. It's completely doable and I don't feel overwhelmed with thoughts of squeezing even 30min into a busy day. However, once I start my 10min I usually keep going. Taking away the pressure of a big chunk of time makes it easier to keep the commitment.

Pump that hear rate up baby!

Do exercises that elevate your heart rate, make you sweat, make you breath fast!!! Even if you can't do much of it try to do at least a little, it's a much more effective way of burning calories...this way you'll burn AFTER you exercised too, and also your endurance will grow workout after workout!

Change

it might sound wierd at first, but my motto is if it feels challenging and uncomfortable do it! You need to try different things, even if there things that never appealed to you. If you're body seems to be having a difficult time adapting to it its because you working out muscles you never have!

whenever you can

Exercise can take the form of housework done fast, a brisk walk, climbing stairs, an aerobics class, dancing, a sport and so many more fun things.

You can exercise for ten minutes or hours, but exercise of any kind will help you become healthier and you will feel better..
