Use a Heart Rate Monitor

I exercised for months without one, but now I can't imagine life without this little gadget! It's a great way to measure more objectively when you need to step up the pace, and when you need to slow down!

My fitness secret for burning more calories

Don't do the exact same exercise for the exact same time and intensity every day. Vary the times and intensities and even activity. Your body is smart and if you do the same thing all the time your body efficiently burns fewer calories for the same time and intensity than it did before.

Exercise Every Day, No Matter What

I was getting lazy and not going out because of the weather. As soon as I started going out every day, going to the gym, whatever, the weight started dropping and I am getting fit. I am so happy. Would I rather sit? NO! I used the Spark Book to help me get motivated.

Losing motivation to complete exercise routine

Today I struggled getting through 30 minutes of exercise. But I told myself how good I will feel after thirty minutes is over. I figured I am awake fifteen hours a day (900 minutes) and I am exercising is 3% of the 900 minutes. This is a small amount of time.

Fun ways to Exercise

When I'm at work and my co-worker has a meeting to attend to out of the office I take a 30 minute walk back and forthin the office. Works for me and is a super stress reliever. emoticon

Exercise First Thing in the Morning

Get it out of the way. If you don't do it then, you'll find excuse after excuse not to do it later in the day!

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..
