Jog on busy streets

I find that when I jog on busy streets, I am motivated to keep jogging. I prefer to jog outside. When I see others smiling at me or giving me thumbs up, I get even more encouraged. When I see other joggers, I give them an encouraging word or thumbs up too.

Start small and work up

Don't expect to be able to do an hr on the ellipitcal or treadmill the frist time you get on. Or be able to walk for Kms. Start small 10min 3-5 times a week.. Gradually increase your time and distance.

Add your own twist to your walk

I do Leslie Sasone's walk away the abs, I use my weights and stay on task longer than suggested if I can do more of one segment than another (ie. walk to and fro rather than kick) This works for me as I am gratified when I cannot walk outside.

Log your exercise

I find when it's hard to get going, I log in my exercise before I do it. Then I HAVE to do it, or feel awful erasing it! Not often do I have to erase it!

crunches

I learned from my kickboxing teacher that you don't need to lay down on the ground to do crunches. Lifting your legs and twisted your torso is another alternative to crunches!!

Don't tell my husband

I think I am addicted to the elliptical machine. I can't wait until the next day to get back on it again. Husband is jealous I think.
