I was tired of working my workouts around the gym, so I dedicated a place in the house to be "my gym". No fancy equipment, just DVD's, yoga props, weights and a bench, but it is all mine and nobody can tell me I have to go home!
As a disabled long-distance runner, I used every excuse in the book for not exercising. Then one day I just had enough! I called a friend and asked him to accompany me on a Sunday stroll in the afternoon sun. He said, " Oh! You want to go for a walk?" I said no, but I'd like to go outside.
I drink at least 24oz of water first thing in the morning to make sure I'm hydrated for my exercise classes...and I usually drink another 24oz while exercising or shortly thereafter. It's a good way to get most of your water in before lunch!
