It definitely does. I can feel the difference physically AND mentally when I exercise...or don't!

Ive been doing that in 10 min increments at work since we have a gym here. I go down there on both my 15 min breaks and jump on the treadmill.

You improve every organ in your body, increase brain function, help with digestion, decrease stress, improve your waistline and increase your endorphins which makes you smile!

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

Should be getting my rebounder today, so bouncing for 20 minutes will be easy.

I just started doing 20 minutes a day everyday this week! Whether I do my SP video, lift weight or at least go for a quick walk - I'm hoping to really see a difference. My goal for my streak is to do it every day until my final weigh in next Wednesday (and I started this Tuesday). After that - I'll keep making Wednesday a goal - just 7 more days - just 7 more days - until it mounts up and I can't wait to hit 100 days of 20 minutes a day! My fitness minutes won't be hard to reach each week that's for sure!

I'll walk over and talk to people instead of picking up the phone.

At home, I'll take dishes out of the dishwasher one at a time and walk back and forth to put them away.

Not efficient, but every little bit of movement helps.

I sneak in excercise at work. Everytime I go to the bathroom, I do a set of wall push ups until my arms are fatigued. When I'm drinking my water properly that's a set every 45 mins or so!

Always a great reminder - I like that you are targeting 4 days a week instead of saying everyday - that way you have not set yourself up for failure...

It's not that hard to get in a little exercise.

Climb the steps at home 3-4 times during each commercial break, or do a set of situps and a set of pushups during each break. Do some chair dips. Do a few knee ups while sitting on the couch.

It's more mental than anything - just make the effort and the results will follow.

I have been doing at home exercises at least 4 days a week and have seen results! Remember it's 80% what you eat, 20% exercise. 20 minutes is better than no minutes. Remember to drink plenty of water during the day to continue flushing out your system. If you have belly fat that is stubborn, focus on strength training and mixing it with cardio. Best of luck!
