www.podrunner.com's interval training music is really cool. Training programs C5K, C8K, C10K available. VERY helpful. Best part: It's free!
Exercise doesn't have to be a chore. Look at some things you did as a child for fun like jump rope, hula hoop, kickball, dodge ball, and hop scotch these things never felt like exercise. It was all simple and fun things to do with family and friends.
Target Heart Rate=THR=measures exercise intensity=easy & precise. THR=zone/range HR falls in 2 train aerobically. Train below THR not intense enough. Train above THR= anaerobically (without oxygen)= inefficient & too intense.
Even when I don't feel like exercising I make myself at least start by saying that I will only exercise 10 minutes. Most of the time I do a full workout once I get started.
I love running and it makes me high!
My spaniel is so lively i run when we go for our "walk" he loves it and even if i feel like i cant go any more he keeps going pulling me with him and i realise i can do so much more!
We have taken to walking to and from our local favorite restaurants. It gives us 30 minutes of walking and more time to enjoy each other!
Before I step into the shower I do those little arm circles. I started with 25, and now I do 150. I also do "swimming" strokes - and get my whole upper body going. Really gets the blood moving, and I can see those arms firming up.
I change up my exercise routine every month or so to keep from getting bored
I tend to procrastinate (avoid!) when it comes to starting my strength exercises so I've started putting the message "DO YOUR STRENGTH EXERCISES" on my Spark appointment calendar. I get an e-mail message of the appointment and I don't delete it until I've done the exercises!
