I clip on the pedometer first thing in the morning and take it off right before going to bed. I look at it during the day to check the step count. It encourages me to even walk in place in front of the computer to add steps.
Looking back, I can't believe I never took advantage of the wonderful gyms and pools at the colleges and grad schools I went to. They were free, they were right in front of me, and I never used them. A serious regret!
I'm a big fan of after-lunch walks - and taking the stairs whenever possible!
Instead of going out to eat or hitting a bar with your girlfriends, get physical instead. Go for a run or a hike, go swimming (and hit the hot tub afterward), play racquetball or tennis--the possibilities are endless.
I workout 3-4 times per week and hardly ever do the same workout twice in one week. I make sure to add variety to my workouts, try new strength training moves, add jumps to my aerobic exercises, whatever I think of to make it fun. It takes boredom out of the process and keeps it challenging!
Keep a mini cycle under your desk and pedal away while sparking! You'll be surprised at how many hours you'll log.
I tell myself to go to the gym and just do at least 30 minutes of cardio--once I've done that, I often find myself doing some strength training or doing another 15 min. of cardio. Sometimes the hardest part of exercising is getting started!
I can only exercise to music. It makes walking enjoyable.
