On days I can't make it to the gym I will exercise during the commercials of the shows I watch in the evening. Pick your balance ball, resistance bands, free weights, bosu ball...even your hula hoop! Have fun!

Exercise is Exercise. 10 minutes here, 10 minutes there, or 60 minutes one time. It all adds up! It doesn't have to always be the traditional take X amount of time each day to work out. I sneak in 10 minute walks, or step exercises. All of these still add up to my allotted time needed for exercise!
Stop thinking that if you miss your gym time then you won't be able to work out today. Or that you just don't have time today. It is all cumulative!! So go out there and make it happen.
Schedule fitness appointment for yourself each day
I work off of an appointment schedule each day. My last appointment of the day is at the gym. I would not miss an appointment with one of my patients so why would I allow myself to miss my own appointment?
