Running Late in the Morning? Set an Alarm.

I always lose track of time in the morning and end up running late, so I set an alarm about 5 minutes before I needed to walk out the door. When the alarm went off, it was supposed to alert me to hustle and get out the door, but I found that I became motivated to 'beat the clock' and be ready before the alarm goes off. I wish I would have discovered this years ago. emoticon

Combining Exercise with Other Daily Tasks

I used to have trouble working strength training into my schedule. When making tea, I used to put the water on, go sit down and wait for the water to boil, get up, pour the water into the teapot, set the timer, go sit down and wait for the tea to brew. Now, instead of sitting down, I perform strength training exercises while making tea - wall pushups, lunges, etc... Making 2 cups of tea a day can help me get up to 20 minutes of strength training. emoticon

Exercise with a Taller Person

At lunch, I walk with one of my co-workers - he's 6'6" and I am 5'3". I work a lot harder trying to keep up with him than I do walking by myself.
