Talk a walk each time you take a restroom break

At work I need to get up and take a restroom break a few times a day. Once I get up out of my chair I use it as a reminder to do some walking around at a quick pace before sitting back down. a quick 10 minute walk gets in some of my 10,000 daily steps and gets me energized for what I need to do next.

First thing

Instead of reaching for coffee I go my office to start with my spark coaching program, drink 16 ounces of clean water, do my planning and journaling for the day, then jump on my muscle machine and do 50 reps. I also do my prayers and devotional study. Takes me the same amount of time as making and waiting for coffee to brew. If I have time I make coffee but rarely need the jolt.

Tighten Abs While You Walk

Tighten your Abs while you walk and you will be building core strength. Physical therapist had me do this after I had fusion surgery. You can really feel the strengthening. Just tighten or suck in your belly focusing on the area near your navel while you walk. Works for me!

You will always feel better afterwards

On days that I don't feel like exercising or think that I don't have time, I remember that I ALWAYS feel better after I've exercised. I never regret taking that 30-60 mins to exercise but I've often regretted skipping it.

Workout in the morning

Get up an hour early and get moving. You can go to the gym or go for a run...whatever suits you. Try to prep anything you need the night before (pack your gym bag, organize the clothes you're wearing the following day, put out a quick morning snack).
