Don't Wait Until You "Feel Like It."

When I was in college, I went to the personal counseling office because I was feeling really overwhelmed, and my counselor told me something about procrastination that will always stick with me: "Don't wait until you "feel like" doing something, because chances are good you'll never "feel like" doing it."

Stretching

I have incorporated stretching into my daily route of cleaning. When I go to make the beds I place my legs one at a time up on our bed and stretch. As I go through the day I stretch while doing my daily chores, when vacuuming I stretch my sides, reach for the stars or cob webs! Be creative STRETCH!

Eat 20-60 min after workout, a blend of carbohydrates and protein

I always wondered if I should eat or not after a workout. As I'm not hungry after jogging, I thought it is good not to eat, also to help my weight loss. Actually this is not the case.

Best is to provide the energy for the muscles, 20-60 mins after exercice.

I go for the recommended blend of carbohydrates and protien, like chicken with brown rice, yogurt with almonds, or a protein shake with a banana.

I got this tip from Get-fit-Guy, link to his short article at More Information.

I CAN DO 20 MINUTES, BUT 60 MINUTES IS TOO LONG!

On the days I do cardio only at the gym, my routine is to do 60 minutes. I dread it because it seems so long. Lately rather than stay on one piece of equipment for the entire time, I have spent 20 on the elliptical, 20 on the treadmill and 20 on the bike. It goes so much faster and before I've had time to think about how much longer I have to go, I'm done. WOOHOO!

Start small

I tell myself to go to the gym and just do at least 30 minutes of cardio--once I've done that, I often find myself doing some strength training or doing another 15 min. of cardio. Sometimes the hardest part of exercising is getting started!
