When Its too hot outside, take the exercise to the pool, do jumping jacking, simulate jumping rope, running, walking at a brisk pace.
Without a lot of money for equipment. I have a 'portable' exercise bike (collapses or expands with a solid pin, holds up to 17 st (238 lbs) - I also have exercise bands with handles. Carefully (and evenly) wrapping the bands around the neck of the bike - you can add in arm work on intervals.
This game is fun and addictive. Works your legs, arms, and core(if you have a balance board). It even has a workout mode so you set how long you want to work out for or how many calories to burn and tracks your weight(balance board again). Great music on it too. Sweet!!
Changing my thinking from how hard it is to get up each morning and exercise to how great exercise makes me feel helps me to stay focused on the long-term goal, and not the short-term obstace (i.e. "I don't feel like exercising now" or "I don't have the energy.") You get the idea.
Plan your workouts for the week but allow a bit of flexibility. For instance if you are scheduled to workout on Wednesday but are unsuccessful make it up on another day - don't feel bad just move on
Instead of taking all three of my dogs on one walk. I take them on separate walks.
I keep a small basket in my bathroom with rolls of exercise clothes. When I do laundry, I take the top, stack the rest on top, pants, socks etc, roll them up, and keep them in the basket.
Make exercise fun and you will do it. I play alot of exercise games on the Wii and I change up what I do so I don't get bored. Have fun and burn calories.
As the day goes by, we can become tired, distracted or just plain discouraged! If you work out, before you even eat breakfast in the morning...you KNOW you'll get it done.
Hah! Get your mind out of the gutter! What I mean is commit to have an exercise streak by exercising 10 minutes a day for a 7 day streak (or whatever you're comfortable for). Or a 14 day streak of drinking 8 glasses of water a day. Or a 30-day streak of logging your food. C'mon - lets STREAK!!!<...
