Dance when you clean house!

When I need to clean the house (ugh) I put on my headphones, put on a workout station on Pandora, and dance while I clean. My kids think I am crazy but it makes cleaning much more fun and I get some cardio in while I do it, WIN WIN!!

stretching while you wait

I do stretches while I'm waiting for things, like the coffee to be done!

Treadmill and Netflix

The only time I've got Netflix on is while I'm on the treadmill, adjusting the speed and incline every once in a while. Next thing you know the show is over and I've got 45-55 minutes of exercise for the day and I don't feel guilty for watching a favourite show.

Sneaking it in

I like to do calf raises and leg raises while i'm typing emails at my desk. It helps to keep me warm in a cold office too!

The best exercise for weight loss...

is the one you'll do. Preferably one you enjoy, but if you won't do the exercise, it won't work! If you need to, start slowly, but start!

Early morning work out?

If the best time for you to work out is early in the morning, but, like me, you begrudge getting up sooo early . . . get everything ready the night before. For example, I work out to emoticon , so I make sure the DVD is in the player before I go to bed, my water bottle is full and in the fridge, my work out area is clear and I go to bed in my work out clothes!
The only thing I have to worry about is getting up and exercising . . . no worry about all the prep!

get yourself to exercise

Keep your exercise clothes beside your bed and put them on before you leave your room. Do the normal things you do then get outside for a walk or if it is awful out, turn on an exercise video. Heck, just turn on some music and dance. You are going to feel a lot better believe me.
If you can not exercise in the morning, take your clothes to work with you and put them on before you leave the office etc. Then just hit the ground running.
I hope this helps get you started
