Hi there!! Glad to have you on the team! I've been on sparkpeople for a few years now but I just recently discovered this team. I found that going to the SparkGuy's 10 Minute Fitness Club Group Forum for this team keeps me motivated. I never thought in a million years that I would exercise 29 days out of 31 days of January. Right now I'm on a 26 day streak of exercising at least 10 min. a day. I would have never, ever thought I would do that. On the group forum they share their ups and downs and things that work. Some are on a 100 or 200+ day streak. The most I used to do was 4 days of exercise in a row and I didn't know how I was going to make it to a 5 day streak but now it's not as hard and even fun sometimes. You can do it! Join us and good luck!

You can get your 10 minutes by doing little things during the day:
1. Park further away in the parking lot and walk (whether at work or the store) 2. Get up every hour and walk down the hallway 3. Take the stairs instead of the elevator 4. When you go to the mailbox, instead of getting the mail and going back to the house, walk a few houses down and back.
All of these things count as activity and are a great way to get started on this 10 minute/day journey!
Best of luck and we look forward to hearing from you.
Eliminate excuses and avoid procrastination! Just Do It!
