Leave the car at home.

I leave my car at home and walk everywhere. To The gym (4K) to the drug store (1.5K) to the grocery store (2K). It all adds up and save the environment as well.

First Think In the Morning and with my tea

To motivate my exercise routine, I do not get dressed until I do 215 steps on the elliptical. Being retired, it is easy to forget to exercise during the day without a routine.

when, where, how???

I workout in the morning. If I don't go to the gym, I use a video right here at home. I start early and remind myself daily that starting the day with an accomplished goal is superb and works for me..

Routine

Get into a routine: Same time every day for exercising and set aside as many minutes as you can spare. As little as 10 (maybe 3 x day) or even better 30 minutes.
After 2 weeks, you'll miss it if you don't exercise during that time.

taking that first step

I'm really out of shape, suffer from back problems etc. So it's hard to start working out again. Living in a city, I decided to walk as much as possible, at a good pace. I find myself walking for at least 30 mins every day. It's not the most rigorous workout, but it beats doing nothing.

AM Workout Motivation

I am motivated to workout before 8AM every morning. Because it is not safe for me to allow the day to reach 12Noon without working out. When I reach this point, I start to procrastinate and never work out.

Walking

Even when I don't feel like doing any other workout, I can usually get myself to walk a mile or two with the dogs. I get moving, and I can walk at my own pace, slow if I'm tired or faster if I want a more rigorous workout.

Making all my chores around the house an exercise.

Whatever work I do daily around my house I make it an exercise. I even stopped using remote control to change TV channels. I get up and walk after every 10 minutes to do some thing. I do housework in between my workouts. I love this healthy way of living.

Visualize it!

When I want to quit, I visualize myself getting stronger with each repetition. I see myself healthier and it motivates me to keep going.
