Tammy, you've got a great attitude. Just remember how much better you feel when you actually do it! Sometimes it's hard to get started, but it's always worth it in the end! emoticon

The biggest hurdle is getting started. I've been known to sleep in workout clothes so I have no excuse in the morning. And I know how good it feels - mentally and physically - throughout the day knowing that I exercised.

i am actually finding it easy to exercise. we got a ps3 for christmas and my husband bought me the Mel B game. it is so fun i enjoy doing it every night. i even add about a 2 mile walk with leslie. so much fun. i change it up everytime. whether it was adding the walk. making the workout longer or even the walk longer!!

*Everyday* is exercise day for me. I let myself have Sundays off, but am apt to spend no less than 2 hours a day at the gym. It is a part of my life and, as with any other habit/routine, it is just what I do. I think you have to make it that way in your life, too. It's not something you sit around thinking about doing...it's just something that you do...like brushing your teeth, taking a bath and doing the grocery shopping. As the commercial says: "Just do it". Don't think about it.

I've been finding it hard to stay motivated to exercise so I've been doind a couple sets of 10 mins during the day that way I'm more likely to get it done.I should get off the computer and do 10 mins on my gazelle now

I agree. I've read a few times that on days that you don't want to exercise just commit to 10 minutes. Most days, by the time you get to 10 minutes your attitude will have changed and you'll complete the exercise. Worst case scenario, you got 10 minutes of exercise.

Thank you for your response. I believe I will get that feeling. I just suppose I wish I had it now. emoticon

You are getting smaller only not at the pace you would like to see. It is the slow steady rate that will bring long lasting success.
I hope someday soon you get the energized feeling while getting ready to exercise emoticon emoticon emoticon

Its funny I sometimes feel "Ugh exercise day AGAIN!" And feel myself sometimes grudgingly getting myself ready. However you know what? when I begin my workout it is like a rush of energy that flows through my veins. I get all pumped up and exhilarated doing my reps then getting on that treadmill.

I picture myself getting smaller and smaller, although I know it doesnt happen that way but it does feel good..

Its just a matter of telling myself that it may be a slow start but the end result is always good.
