Visualize

If you don't always feel like exercising when you start out just visualize the end goal. The vision board recommended by SparkPeople is a great tool. It takes time to adjust in the changes to your lifestyle. Be kind to yourself knowing you will get there because you want to get there.

Free Workouts

Instead of exercising at the gym, our group meet at the park, beach, track, and mall to do circuit training. Those of us that participate in organized exercises bring our new moves back to the group. We have a fun combination of different types of exercises.

multi-tasking

Challenge yourself! Do strength training exercises that target upper and lower body muscle groups or balance, at the same time. i.e. biceps curls while standing on one foot. Or bridges while doing chest flies. Saves some time and also burns more calories.

Give yourself an off day

I give myself one day a week to skip my morning treadmill walk. But I don't always use it. It just feels good to know that I have that day to use if I want.

Just Do It - to borrow from Nike

Somedays I don't feel like exercising, and I know that if I give into that on one day, it will be easier to give in and not exercise the next day; so, I remember why I set my weight loss goals in the first place, call up the will power and go do my workout, and keep on keeping on...

Exercise First

I exercise first thing in the morning to get at least 30 min of activity in a day. It ensures that I don't miss and makes me feel energized for the day.

Just 5 minutes

When I don't feel like working out, I tell myself to workout for 5 minutes. I can do anything for 5 minutes, and I can certainly carve 5 minutes out of my day! If, after those 5 minutes, I don't want to continue, I stop. But, usually, once I get moving, I stay moving!

Use those weekends

Use those weekends or your days off to get some long workouts in. During the week, schedules get hectic and you may lose valuable time to get some good exercise in. People tend to eat more on the weekends, as well. You won't have to feel guilty.
