You need to trick your body! With nutrition... have two low calorie days and then one high calorie day followed again my two low calorie days and then another high..repeat this process and you should see results. With fitness...interval training will get you results too. Combining both is best.!
Set a goal. I use marathons (half marathons, 5 or 10 k's) to motivate me to exercise. The goal is not to "win," but to DO IT. I just finished the LA Marathon on March 21st. 7 hours, 1 minute and 23 seconds! 7 hours of steady 16-minute miles. And you get a t-shirt! Start training early!
Whenever the weather is to hot or to cold my wife and I will mall walk. We will walk around the mall before it opens and then we do our shopping when the mall opens. Another thing we do is when we go to the big box stores we walk to one side and then walk up and down the isles
DANCING.....ANY KIND OF DANCING IS GOOD FOR THE SOUL!
Each time I use the restroom at work. I do 10 windmills before leaving. Arms out even with shoulders. Bend at waist and try touching right foot with left hand. Then arms up even with shoulders and bend try touching left foot with right hand.
