Everything counts!

Everything counts! That's a good secret. Not only every bite of food counts, but every single activity counts too! Stand when your hopping on the computer to track your food or check your e-mail. Walk in place while cooking dinner. Always take the stairs! Waiting in line? Calf-raises. In an elevator by yourself? Squats. Kids sleeping? Walk in place. Your hungry? Don't "test" the food that your cooking! Drink some water while you wait! Everything counts. Every single little thing we do COUNTS!

Dancing in your kitchen

I always put music on while I cook, and I dance. I try to always move (which is not hard with some fun upbeat music).

How to keep going!

Ten seconds is not a long time. Five seconds is even shorter. When you start feeling like you're ready to give up, just hang in there for another ten seconds. Wow! You're ten seconds closer to your goal! That wasn't hard; now do another ten seconds. Before you know it, you'll have finished as planned.

Let It Heal

If you get an injury like a sprained ankle, take the time off the exercise to let it heal. Focus on eating right and resting. Return to your exercise regime once you are fully healed. Chances are if you do half exercises with an injury you are just going to prolong the healing process and it'll take

Making exercise a habit

I have learned on the healthy lifestyle change that IF I want to lose weight and get healthy I need to workout. I need to make these workouts a habit and the only way to do that is to make them fun. FInd something you enjoy and do it regularly. emoticon

Multi Tasking while Sparking

Every little bit of exercise helps right? I do ankle circles, scissor legs and walking place while I do Spark People on the computer. Sitting on the edge of your chair and doing the reps strengthens your core. I feel as though I accomplish more toward fitness.

Keeping me exercising

The way I keep myself exercising every night is I download a audio book onto my mp3 player and listen to the story. I get so involved in the story that I want to exercise and forget how long I have been exercising. In order to find out what happens next in the book I have to go and exercise.

Just do 10 minutes

When I'm super tired and just don't think I have the energy to exercise, I tell myself "just 10 minutes". Some days, once I start, I can do more and some days, I just do the 10 minutes. Either way, at least I exercised a few minutes.
