Welcome to the team. If it is more difficult to for you in the afternoon/evening, maybe you could try to get your exercise in the morning. I have found the mornings to be easier for me because I do have the energy that I need.

Welcome to the Team!

I have to agree, don't wait for motivation, it will never come because there's too much going on. I also just do it. After work is best for me and my only alone time, so there's no question on when. I also have the hunger issue, I'm normally starving at 3:30-4:00 and by the time I get home I want to eat everything in sight. I have my protein filled snack around that time so I don't think about food first thing when I walk in the door.

Generally, I feel so stressed/worn out when I leave work, I feel like I just can't do it, but I get started and after a few minutes, I feel better and want to keep going. I started with just 10 minutes and it wasn't long before I would go longer and longer. Then I realized this was most important, and I have dedicated time for exercise whether it's 10 min or 40. I know now, no matter how I feel, if I just get started, I'll keep going. You'd be surprised how much energy you have afterwards. I actually get more accomplished afterward.

If you need ideas, I would recommend Leslie Sansone Walk At Home DVD's. Very effective 1 minute workouts in just 12-15 minutes, depending on the DVD's. Most have each mile in segments so you can choose just one, or more.

Best wishes to you.

Hello Nicci32,

emoticon to the team. It is a great place to start your workout streak. You'd be surprised at how much easier a 10 minute workout becomes once you build momentum. I just do it. I don't over think it and I cannot rely on my motivation because it isn't always there. Before you know it, you will find that you actually do want to get in your 10 minutes everyday. Just stick to it and you will reap all of the wonderful benefits fitness will have in your life. If you can't do the full ten minutes in one shot, do it in increments of 2mins. 5x a day or 2 (5min) bursts and you will see how you can actually find time in your busy schedule. Your body deserves at least those ten minutes a day.. Go for it!!!

Good Morning,

I am new to spark and this sight is so intriguing and motivational. I am on here multiple times a day getting new ideas. My only issues are finding the motivation and energy to workout when I get home from a long day and not binge eat once I arrive. Especially sweets!!! (weakness) I do very well when I am at work but once I get home I feel like or maybe realize that I am starving and end up snacking while I'm making dinner. I have two children and a husband who works nights between work, homework (mine included), classes, soccer practice, cleaning, dinner, etc.... I am ready to pass out when I get home! I have been forcing myself to at least use my weighted hula hoop everyday but sometimes that's a task. Hopefully this 10 minutes a day can get me in the swing of things and put me in the right direction.
