Drop In!

My gym has both costly registered fitness classes and free drop-in classes. I've found that the drop-in ones are actually MORE motivating! It's often the same core group of people at all the classes, from Aerobics to Zumba, and they'll hold you accountable if you're gone for more than a day or two!

Five Minutes

Tell yourself that you will exercise for just five minutes when you don't feel like exercising. Just that five minutes will get you going, and once you start, I guarantee that you will do more than just five minutes!

Have a goal!

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! emoticon

10000 steps

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

motivation

I've come to realize that I'm more motivated when I've beenmoving all day already. If I stop and sit down and relax I have no motivation at alll to exercise. Keep moving...it helps!
