Put exercise first!

I realized that I had not made exercise a priority in my life. So I made taking care of myself, including exercise, my first priority. Then, I made it first thing in the morning...I exercise before I go to work.

Mini exercise sessions really work!

I have two 15 minute breaks and a 30 minute break during my workday. I have started taking walks (either outside, or in the office gym) even if only 10 minute. I can burn between 50 and 100 calories each time, and it does add up!

Schedule Exercise

I made exercise a regular part of my day. Before I retired, I even wrote it in on my day planner. It became such a habit that it felt odd if I had to miss a day. In retirement, it's my job. Instead of being at work at 8:00. I'm at the gym.

Set short and long term goals

Set realistic and achievable exercise goals and reward yourself for meeting those goals. Having short and long term goals is a powerful motivating tool.

Exercising on a budget

With finances being tight, I walk at least 30 minutes a day, and do a 10 min bootcamp video. I belong to 4 bootcamp teams and do a different bootcamp each month. When can't go outside to walk, utilitize free cardio videos on exercise.tv and realage.com. emoticon

Make it a Reward

We all know that we feel better after a good workout.

When you're having a rough day and only want to crash in front of the TV, tell youself if you make it through the work shift, you'll reward youself with a great workout.

Mind over matter. It's not a chore; it's an energy high.

have f un

When doing exercises, do things you find that are fun. Dance, play at the playground, ski, swim, and so on. By doing something fun it takes the work out of exercise.
