"It's only...20 minutes, 25 minutes, etc."

Falling out of an exercise habit is all 2 ez, I self-motivated 2 get back in2 habit by telling myself that it's only 20 min. I 'd start my beloved FIRM tape & go for the full time once 20 minutes were up.

Have at least one home workout

If you usually workout in a gym, a pool or studio, try to have at least one convenient at home option. This could be a jump rope, hula hoop, a set of resistance bands, etc. When you are feeling busy or unmotivated just plan to workout for 10-15 minutes while listening to music or watching TV.

The elevator can be an exercise site

Some days, my knee objects to my use of the stairs. While I wait for the elevator, I do some stretching and, while in the elevator, do hip flexors, squats or other stretches. Then I walk the long way around the floor to my office. The ride is not wasted &, through the day, I can get 10 or so in.

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.
