Don't go home yet!

The way I get to run or exercise is, I bring my workout bag with me to work, then I run BEFORE going home. It only takes an hour or so, and when I get home I am free to cook, clean, or chill.

Work out EVERY day

I always thought it would be impossible to exercise every day, but when I make it my goal to do something every day I find that I'm less likely to "fall off the wagon" . Even if it's just 10 or 15 minutes - I try to do something every day.

Just Do It

I find that if I tell myself to "Just Do It" it will get done - walking especially - I may not feel like it but when I get a moment then I Just Do It and it goes by really fast.

Wear your Workout Clothes to Sleep

If you do a morning workout, wear your workout clothes to sleep. Then when you wake up, all you need your groggy self to do is put on your sneakers and you're ready to go!

Trikking!

A full body workout, cardio, fitness, & FUN! Trikke 8 miles in an hour daily when weather is nice! I am 56, hubby 67 & we fly! 3 years ago we saw someone on one on our paved bike path & with no more info than trikke.com provided, I ordered 2. A little hard to learn but soon we were carving away.

Try Different Treadmill Speeds

If you're having trouble staying on one speed for a long duration of time on a treadmill, try different speeds out different days. I found that 5.2 is too slow for me, but 5.6 wears me out too quickly. 5.4mph is my "magic speed" but it took me weeks to find!

Set Goals for your Daily Workout

Setting- and then completing- daily goals gives me a sense of accomplishment and closure to my workout. I started with a goal to complete 2 miles in 30 minutes on a treadmill. Once you can do this consistently, increase the distance!

Get a little exercise each break at work

I am like most of you and can hardly find time for anything. So I thought about something that I do many times a day. I figured I could make a habit of doing a few squats or wall pushups each time I go to the bathroom(at work or home). I get a burst of energy while boosting my metabolism often!
