Any workout will do.

I have found that any amount of workout is worth doing. When I can't do a full workout, half will do, so much better than nothing

Set Workout Goals

If you're like me, exercising without a point is boring. Set goals like setting a personal record for your 5k, holding your yoga pose for longer than you've ever before, or increasing your weights every 3 weeks. Better yet? Sign up for a race or competition for extra motivation!

HOCKEY - Learn to Play as an Adult and Burn TONS of Calories!!!!

Have fun and burn amazing amounts of calories by learning a new sport - Hockey! I usually burn between 700-1100 calories during a 60-75 minute session. I don't even realize it because I'm having so much fun! Check your local ice rink for an adult learn-to-play session.

Become Purposefully Inefficient!

One great way to get more active each day is being purposefully inefficient. Carry your groceries in one bag at a time. Seek out the rest room farthest away from where you are, go to the mail box yourself instead of asking your kids....You'll be surprised how your activity level will increase!

Pot Luck Exercise choice one day a week

I developed a strong "exercise buddy" friendship with a person I met in a strength training class. Beyond our class, we do 3 1 hour sessions of hilly aggressive walking each week. Then we got the idea to use one day/wk for pot luck: kayak, bike ride, hike, mall walk, snow shoe etc.

Get music that keeps you MOTIVATED!

There are times you just don't feel like working out, but crank up some up beat music and feel the energy! It's the same when your heading to workout or during your workout. Put on something that really gets your blood pumping and give it your all, I do.

Exercising daily

Cardio and strength activities every day are a must. Even with a busy lifestyle, it is important to be active everyday. Change up my routines to keep it fresh and make sure that I have at least 30 minutes of cardio every day.

chair aerobics

Chair aerobics can be a great work out especially if you use weights. I get the same great feeling after chair aerobics as I do when doing them standing up!
