I'd say the first step for me was doing the 10 mins a day! Really making it a priority to do something for at least 10 mins a day! You can eventually work up to 30 mins a day just doing 10 mins in the morning 10 in afternoon and another 10 at night and there's your 30 minutes :)

Well, don't really know where to start....don't want to fail, so I guess I feel like I don't try because I am scared of failing, not getting some results quickly enough and I don't like to fail, so I don't try. :(

I did a kickboxing class for roughly 2 years, but with family schedules at the time, daughter younger, needing to get to bed earlier and the classes not happening until 6:30 - 7:15pm, we would get dinner too late and child to bed too late and I would ultimately not get in the recommended 5 -6 classes a week, but rather would get 2 - 3. Husband is doing karate and he gets to classes usually 3 times a week and is gone from roughly 6 - 9 if there is class and then sparring.

So, I don't have a lot of "me" time, unless I want to wait up at 4:00 - 4:15 to get in exercise. With my sleep issues, I am not very well rested whether I get in 5 hours or 8 hours of sleep a night, and I have a terribly hard time waking up that early to work out, shower & get to work on time (7am). I also have hypothyroid issues, which even though they claim the medicine and thyroid levels are "normal", I just feel it affects how "non-energetic" I feel.


But, leaving for work so early in the morning - my commute is about 30 minutes 1 way - I find it difficult to get up, shower, get family up, feed them breakfast, prepare their lunches (everyone is different) and I usually don't get mine packed, nor did I eat breakfast. I leave the house and either I grab junk as I leave, or grab something not so good like a breakfast burrito from McD's.

So, here are all my excuses, now, how have you guys and gals gotten up the motivation to overcome these items. I really WANT to change, and try, as I have a great child and husband and want to be better, live longer, and play more and have fun in life.
