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.

Variety

I have a Nintendo Wii. This has been my lifesaver with exercising. Did you know that if you play an active game of Bowling you can burn approx 103 calories? That means playing like you are bowling, and not sitting around. I also have a variety of exercise discs I rotate so not to get bored.

Climbing to success

Taking the stairs instead of the elevator lets me sneak in extra steps through the day.
I also walk to someone's office instead of emailing them or picking up the phone when I can.
Every step adds up!

Exercise in Small Time Allotments

Because the weather has been dreadful this winter, my cardio has been indoors on an elliptical trainer. Even though I watch TV while doing my 30 minutes a day, I get really bored. I break my cardio down into 15 minute segments which breaks the boredom and I no longer dread cardio.

My own place

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! emoticon

Use your arms more

Place items used most frequently on higher shelves so you have to stretch to reach things

Tracking Cardio Minutes

Tracking my cardio minutes in advance helps my motivation and gives me urgency that I have to get it done.

Exercise: Do What You Can!

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.
