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

Adding exercise into my day

I stretch for 5 minutes in the shower every morning. When cleaning or cooking I use every opportunity to bend and stretch. I use my pedometer all day and I add steps when I have the time.

10 minute exercise

Tell yourself that you are going to exercise for just 10 minutes. Most people can do this. What you will find is that you will do so much more. It works every time for me

Sneaking Exercise!

I have recently starting walking up the stairs in my building during my lunch time. It is a 7 story building...so there are plenty of stairs!

TV on DVD

In order to get my butt out of bed and onto my elliptical in the morning, I select a TV show I've been wanting to watch with hour long episodes, I buy the DVD for the show, and I only allow myself to watch the series when I'm on my elliptical. Works best with shows that end with cliffhangers! :)

Workout Motivation

In order to stay accountable for my running, I registered for a race and told everyone I knew about it! I knew I would not want to let myself down and have to tell everyone that I couldn't complete the race because I couldn't commit to the training.
