Extra Steps

I spend a lot of time sitting at a desk for work, all day every day, but I will get up about every 30 to 45 minutes and take a stroll around the office. It breaks up the monotony of the day.

TV and Walking

OK, I admit it. I watch way too much TV. Do you? I have found some nice walking videos on the Internet...simple, but moving. So while I watch TV I also walk a mile or two with Leslie Sansone. If you like Jane Fonda, you can walk with her instead. Keep moving.

Walk 3 Miles Per Day Without Even Noticing it.

I park 3/4 mile from my work so I get a 1.5 mile walk in every day. I also leave work for lunch most days, so I get another 1.5 mile round trip on those days. I base the distance on the weather, so on sweltering hot days or frigid cold days I park closer.

It's a good distance for me, but not long enough to sweat too much. At the end of the day I have gotten some great exercise in, but never get the "I don't feel like exercising today" feeling anymore.

Stickers for Exercise on my Wall Calendar

I buy some colorful, positive stickers that others may use for their children's "sticker charts" and keep them by a wall calendar prominently hanging in my open kitchen/living area. I track the days I've met my exercise goals by slapping one of those on. The best thing is to see how many stickers are on each day/week/month. I even found some stickers that are motivational--they say "good job!", "excellent", etc. Works for me!

Starting

Getting to where you want to start to exercise is half the battle. Say to yourself, I'll only do 10 minutes. Then, another 10 minutes if you're doing good after the first 10 minutes, and so on. Before you know it, your time limit is met and sometimes exceeded.

Fitting exercise in, a little at a time!

While watching t.v. when a commercial comes on I exercise. Sometimes I ride my bike, or march in place, or I remember the moves that go with walk away the pounds I do that, sit ups on the execise ball. Things like that. You would be surprised how much exercise you can get in while watching t.v. For every hour of t.v. you can get in 15 minutes of exercise. Try it! It will make a big difference for you! Have a great day! emoticon

Just 10 Minutes

On days you don't think you have the energy to exercise, give yourself the 10 minute challenge, it you just do that more than likely once you start you will continue and before you know it, you have completed an awesome workout.

Give it your best shot every day, see what happens! emoticon
