Invest in wicking workout exercise clothes

The improved materials for sports are great for making your exercise more enjoyable. Look for end of season sales if you have sticker shock and remember you will wear them more often than "regular" clothes so they end up being worth the cost "per wear." Hang dry (especially chamois bike shorts) and avoid dryer sheets that will reduce their ability to wick sweat away and reduce the lifetime of the product.

Anyone can RUN!

I went for a walk and was trying to step faster when I suddenly found myself JOGGING! I never thought I'd run again using bad knees, overweight, cardio... every excuse! I ran 60% of my 2.5 mile route - 2 min walk / 3 min run intervals... if I can run - anyone can run!

Take an Exercise "Break"

I used to think that exercising 5 days straight was the best thing I could do. However, by day 4-5 I was wiped out, and felt like my workout was really suffering. Now I work out, Mon. Tues. take a break on Wed. Work out on Thurs-Sat, break on Sunday. It gives my body time to recoup :)

Put together a walk pack

Since I am now walking on a fairly regular basis, I decided to put a walk pack together. Just used a small, sport sling backpack. I hate keeping a lot of stuff in my pockets, and sometimes don't even have pockets. It's ready to go on a moments notice by the door.

i walk alone

so often we are told to have a walking buddy, to make it fun, but for me, i stay more motivated if i walk alone, i cant walk and talk without getting winded faster, so its better for me to walk alone

More peddling

I have a small bicycle peddler that I place beside my computer. Whenever I am spending much time on the computer, I peddle away. It also counts calories and time for me. The time flies by and the calories add up quickly. :)

set small goals

Setting small goals to work up to each week helps me stay motivated. I recently began jogging for the first time in my life. I started off only being able to jog for 1 min before needing a few minutes of walking to recover.

Washing Dishes and Stepping

When I worked and I took a bathroom break I would march in place to increase my steps. It also works if you are standing on your feet like a cashier, nurse, gardener, or other jobs. The steps add up quickly. Even you you march in place brushing your teeth for two minutes, dish washing, cooking you are getting tons of steps in. Just do it. MOVE!!!

Earbud help

I have an iPod touch and love it. I didn't like the earbuds that came with it though so I bought a new softer pair. I wear them upside down. I have the wires come up over the back of my ears before I put them in my ears. They stay put much better when I run. I also have trouble reading that tiny R and L on the back of the buds to know which ear to put them in so I painted a dot on the right one with some red nail polish. You know...R=red. =)
