Calorie Intake

I went from eating a lot of deep fried food to a healthy diet and no deep fried foods. My main success is counting calories. I limited myself to a 1200 calorie intake a day for 30 days. I made sure I took vitamins and supplements. I felt a lot better in 10 days after I started.

Workout at lunch

I'm lucky enough to work within 5 minutes of a gym. So, instead of going out to lunch or just killing time, I head over and get a good 30-45 workout it 4 or 5 days a week. I eat my lunch when I get back to my desk.

Create a workout plan

Whether you workout in a gym or at home, you should create a plan of daily workouts. Start with one week at a time and write down what you're going to do on each day and for how long. If you get extra exercise in, it's a bonus! Also, try to alternate between exercises to avoid getting bored.

Exercise

Try to fit as much exercise that you can in a day. If you need to take a trip less than 1 mile walk to your destination. Plan family excursion that center on hiking. It does not have to be rough terrain. You get exercise, spend time with the family & enjoy nature.

Cardio dance workouts!

I feel so much more motivated to exercise when I have a workout that's fun and different. Hip hop, belly dance, and even hula are really fun and a great workout!

Love My Pedometer

Consistently wearing my pedometer has made me much more aware of how much I move during a day. I get up and "walk" even when I'm watching tv- no more sitting for hours at a time!

Too Busy in the Evening, Try Mornings!

When you find yourself too busy in the evenings to fit in a workout. Try to commute to work in a different manner or get in early. I now bike to work and walk to lunch to fit in exercise I normally would have to go without during busy weeks at the office.

Use the park bench

The next time you're out for a walk in the park make use of the park benches you pass. At the 1st bench do 5 step-ups for each leg...at the next one do 5 tricep dips, then try push-ups off a bench, then seated leg lifts... Just keep alternating. You'll get a full workout by the end of your walk

Suck it in...

When you're running, or walking, or...whatever exercise you're doing, suck in your gut & keep it sucked in. Helps tone your mid-section & prevent injury, like back strain. Improves your posture & works your core. Try it next time you walk to the water cooler
