Watching My Favorite Shows

I usually TIVO a lot of shows that I enjoy. In the morning at around 5:30 when I get up, I march in place and watch a show. Great way to start the day and also gets a lot of steps in before breakfast.

Boot Camp at my local YMCA

Boot Camp a class at my local YMCA. First thing in the morning 0500 to 0600! No excuses! I pay extra which makes me want to go, hate paying and then missing! I have an hour of exercise done by 0600 Monday through Friday! That just feels so good!

Walking to work

I live four blocks from work, but walk there and back via a 31 block route. It works great. Time to think about what I am doing and how things have gone. I have done it long enough that it feels like the way to get there an back.

I need the steps

Whenever something needs to be done or taken somewhere, I volunteer usually calling out the phrase -" I'll do it, I need the steps". The more I move - the more likely I am to continue loosing and keep off what I've lost. emoticon

Schedule fitness appointment for yourself each day

I work off of an appointment schedule each day. My last appointment of the day is at the gym. I would not miss an appointment with one of my patients so why would I allow myself to miss my own appointment?

First one up!

I am the first one up in the morning. I get up an hour early, eat a little snack with some water and then work out.... that is my time and the family respects that. I have been doing it for over 16 years...plus, you have it out of the way for the rest of the day!

Get up from that desk

I often spend hours sitting behind a desk. I will set my phone to chime every hour and remind me to get up and stretch, move and even do a few jumping jacks. I find that at the end of the day, if I will get up and move at least once every hour I don't feel near as "worn out" at the end of the day

Find something you love

When you find an activity you love, it helps you turn it into a healthy habit. I fell in love with bellydance and Anusara yoga. Instead of my life revolving around sedentary things, my life started to revolve around my activities. emoticon emoticon
