When I could I Did

When I weighed 204 and was very out of shape I could not do any kind of exercise and could barely walk.. Then I LOST WEIGHT. The doctor told me to hunt a gym that had a good bike to strengthen my legs.
I did and go most days and they show me the machines I can do. It is great.

Take Fitness Breaks Throughout The Day!

I do a lot of computer work, reading, close work. I find I, and my body feels a lot better if I take quick fitness breaks every hour. I have DVD's with 10 minute workouts, or I do stairs, or go walk around my building, anything just to get moving, warmed up and stretched out. emoticon emoticon

Can't find time to exercise?

I'm a full time mother of 5, full time night shift medical professional, part time student, homeschooler and the list goes on. I never have time to go to the gym to work out. Where ever I am in the house, I do a few squats, jumping jacks, leg lifts, etc. to get that needed exercise. emoticon

The 10 Minute Commitment

I commit to 10 minutes of exercise each day. Six days a week are strength training & 7th day is usually cardio only. I get these 10 minutes in each morning and then add cardio throughout the day.

Motivation to get out and moving

I don't view my bi-weekly walks and bike rides as 'exercise' - instead, I look at them as opportunities to catch up w/a friend, get the dogs outside, explore the world outside, smell the salt air... if I treated my rides as exercise, for example, I suspect I'd never get on the bike :)

Exercising at lunch really makes a difference!

I joined the gym at work and instead of spending my lunch hour sitting at my desk reading or catching up on e-mail, I work-out! It gets me through the afternoon slump, keeps me productive, and helps me resist a sweet afternoon snack.

Do what you love

It's very simple. Pick and do an activity that you love or think you might love. If you absolutely hate running, you are going to give it up. That's a sure thing. If you love running, nothing will make you stop. If you think you would love doing Yoga, go do it and see. It's that simple.

Walk in Front of the TV

I used to think only big efforts counted toward weight loss, but I've found you don't always have to go to the gym to help you get to goal. Walking, dancing, and moving instead of sitting while you watch TV can make a real difference.

ignore the lazy girl/boy m-f

ignore the lazy person inside you that says to stay in your cave and remain a bear. do you want to remain in the shape of a bear? i thought not. so just robotically get up and do your cardio and think of it as brushing your teeth (something you need to do for your health and wellness, too).
