With me everywhere!

One sneaky way I have found to keep exercise on my mind is to keep a resistance band folded in my purse. That way no matter where I am I can utilize them. This comes in handy when sitting in the car (as a passenger)!

Music is a great motivator

I have a music work out playlist. It plays all the songs, from my pop music phase, along with Broadway musicals. Songs, that I can sing along with while I am working out. That way, when I can't do the exercise on the tape I can dance to the music to keep moving.

Spice It Up!! - Listen to Great Tunes

Since I started in January, my greatest motivation for me while running has been the great tunes on my iPod! I have bought the xtreme cardio cd's and also a few others from nike for planning for your first 10k. I find that this music really pumps me up and keeps me going strong!!

Make It A Routine

I am no longer able to work out in the mornings like I like to so as soon as I walk in the door in the afternoon, I change into my workout clothes and head right back out the door. Do not pass go and collect 200 dollars. Just get outside as fast as you can.

Excercise even when u don't want to.

It's hard to excercise when u do not have the motivation. But if you just push yourself and make it a priority it becomes a habit. Then all you can do is think about how can I fit a workout in. If I'm having a busy day and I can't get a full hour of excercise in I'll fit in just 20 mins.

In the parking lot

Before I decided I wanted to be healthier, I would always park close to the front of the parking lot. NOW, I park at the back of the lot and pick up the pace when I walk into the store.

Quick walks

During the work day, instead of trying to fit in a long walk, I take 2-15 minute walks. Helps relieve stress and makes me more productive.
