make a calendar in advance

I make a calendar of what workouts I intend to complete over the month - being a "to-do list" junkie, it works for me to have a schedule and check off the ones I've completed for that sense of satisfaction!

Four Legged Friends

If you're having trouble staying motivated while walking outdoors, grab the leash! I find that when I walk with my dogs I last longer than when I walk alone. I tend to focus more on them when I take them for a walk, than on myself. emoticon

Workout with coworkers

Ask people you work with what gym they go to. You'll be surprised to find out how many people go to the same one as you. Come up with a plan to meet before or after work or on your days off! It's much more motivating to go when you know that there are people counting on you to show up!!

When I could I Did

When I weighed 204 and was very out of shape I could not do any kind of exercise and could barely walk.. Then I LOST WEIGHT. The doctor told me to hunt a gym that had a good bike to strengthen my legs.
I did and go most days and they show me the machines I can do. It is great.

Take Fitness Breaks Throughout The Day!

I do a lot of computer work, reading, close work. I find I, and my body feels a lot better if I take quick fitness breaks every hour. I have DVD's with 10 minute workouts, or I do stairs, or go walk around my building, anything just to get moving, warmed up and stretched out. emoticon emoticon

Can't find time to exercise?

I'm a full time mother of 5, full time night shift medical professional, part time student, homeschooler and the list goes on. I never have time to go to the gym to work out. Where ever I am in the house, I do a few squats, jumping jacks, leg lifts, etc. to get that needed exercise. emoticon
