Ready made homemade salad

I prefer to make my own salads but won't do so if time-crunched. My strategy involves fresh salad ingredients and a 6-8 cup capacity plastic container. I wash and chop 3 heads of romaine lettuce and a variety of my favorite veggies and store in the container in the fridge. Fresh salad at the ready!

Tag Game

During our 15 minute breaks our department plays "tag" to walk around the campus. It is about a .5-.75 mile walk and one person initiates then comes back and "tags" the next person. We continue until all members of our department has walked. Great use of our 15 minute breaks twice a day!

10,000 steps

I try to get at least 10,000 steps every day. I find these things have helped me reach that goal: I pace while talking on the phone and when doing laundry I hang the clothes one at a time instead of a bunch at a time (walking back and forth to the closet) and I also try to walk every day.

Call a Friend(s)

I find that I like exercising with a friend or friends. Our Spark Team is very active; this makes exercising a lot easier.

I keep my Running Journal in my Spark blogs!

I use my Spark blog as a place to journal my runs. I include the date and distance run in the title and place the specifics of the run and a summary of the run in the body of that particular blog entry. It gives me a quick reference to my runs AND I receive feedback from my Spark friends!

You will always feel better afterwards

On days that I don't feel like exercising or think that I don't have time, I remember that I ALWAYS feel better after I've exercised. I never regret taking that 30-60 mins to exercise but I've often regretted skipping it.

Treadmill Success

I have found that if I am proactive in planning when in the day my work out is, (for me early afternoon works best) and then getting on the treadmill when my favorite show is on TV, then it I am more sucessful in staying on longer, and not sitting around when I want to watch a special tv show.
