sitting at my computer

When I am sitting at my computer, I set a timer for 50 minutes and when it goes off I get up and move for 10 minutes. This can get me over an hour of exercise in during a workday.

When i feel like stopping

When I am exercising and feel like stopping, I ask myself, "what's one more minute"? Sometimes it's "Can you just do 5 more minutes" (depending on how hard the workout feels.) I can do this for just ONE MORE MINUTE. And then I stay focused on just that one minute. Eventually, I string the minutes along until I have completed my workout.

Horseback riding and Grooming

I have 3 horses and grooming them and riding one five days a week really gets your muscles working. And since they are animals there is no excuses because they HAVE to be cared for.

Take an extra lap

For me, I'll be more conscientious of moving, and I'll take the longer way. So if I get up to visit a co-worker, I'll go a more roundabout way to get to her or if I simply go to the kitchen for a snack, I'll make sure to walk an extra lap around the house before getting what I desired. Taking those extra few steps keep me going, motivated and pumped throughout the day

Swap the Desk Chair for a Swiss Ball

When you sit on a Swiss Ball, even sitting becomes a gentle core exercise, and will improve all your other exercise, too!

10+ Minutes During Lunch

I use the Spark People video library to get in exercise during the lunch hour. 10 minutes to 14 minutes videos are easy to sneak in and I feel great!

Walking Breaks at Work

I enjoy taking walking breaks while I'm at work. Now that I have the FitBit, I've been making an extra effort to get out while I can!

Lose the All or Nothing Mentality

You don't have to do a zillion sets or exercise for hours. Just do SOMETHING. Having an "all or nothing" mentality will keep you trapped in an on again off again relationship with exercise!

Wii gaming system

While it may not be the most intense workout, the Wii provides a lot of fun, active games for anyone starting out in an exercise program. They are so much fun you don't realize you're starting to sweat!
