Abs in the car!

Try sitting up (not touching the seat back) while you are driving in the car. It is surprisingly hard to do for the whole time (I think the seat belt provides extra resistance) and works your abs while you drive!

Exercise more, spend less

When you go to the mall for a shopping spree, spend the first 30 minutes just walking laps. Then when you begin your shopping, you will feel even better about buying new clothes, and you will probably spend less because you will be tired sooner and want to leave earlier!

I Love to Exercise

With the right music or TV show exercise isn't at all boring and the rush I feel when I'm done is worth it to me to get on the treadmill even when I don't really want to.

Running

If you have always wanted to be a runner, you can!! All it takes is a great pair of running shoes and alot of patience. Start from the very beginning. 1 minute walking, 1 minute running and increase very slowly! In no time you'll be running one mile, then two, then three, etc.

Easy Way to Make it Daily

My way to be sure I get some exercise every day is to start while I'm still in bed. I do bicycle legs lying in or on my bed. Then when I stand up I keep going with some squats & arm circles & other things. It gets me awake & moving & even if I don't get to the big stuff later, I've done SOMETHING!
