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.
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.
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.
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!
Walk an Extra Ten minutes a day.. It will give you a little extra umph for the day. It may also help you get to that next goal more quickly!
Having a new puppy sure has got me up and walking regularly.
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!!
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.
I start my days with Wii fit plus yoga & strength exercises mixing it up daily under the My Routine feature. It clears the cobwebs & gets me in a great frame of mind. Follow it up with SparkPeople Cardio Blast workouts (only 10 min. each) and your motivated to keep going the rest of the day.
