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.

Exercise Playlist

I make a "work out playlist" on my iPod so it can just play straight through a list of favorite songs and I don't have to stop mid workout to change songs. I make a different playlist every 2-3 weeks to not get bored of them.

Music plays a big role

I power walk as my major form of exercise. I have found that updating my mp3 player once per week keeps it interesting. You can reward yourself by putting more of the upbeat songs on it that give you motivation!!

burn more calories

Kick boxing burns more calories than walking dvds. about 5X more! For the same amount of time working out. So if you can handle 30mins of exercise... it'd be worth it to do the kick boxing like taebo or sparks kickboxing. Doing this just 1x a day for a week equals enough calories burned to =1lb of fat lost!

When You Can

Excercise when you can because you never know what tomorrow will bring. So if you can get your excercise in when you are free, you will stay ahead of the game!
