Go to the exercise videos under the Healthy Lifestyle tab. They have tons of videos that last from six minutes, eight minutes, ten minutes...lots to choose from. If you can give yourself ten minutes do a kickboxing video. If you only have six minutes, do the butt blaster. Have 20 minutes? Do the kickboxing AND the buttblaster and then stretch after! There are so many to choose from and the exercise adds up. No one has to do 30 minutes a day, no one has to exercise every single day, just start out doing ten minutes three days a week and work your way up. It is better to do five minutes of something than nothing. You can do it!


Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength

I must learn to love the fool in me- the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries...

Hi! I am a late 30's elementary school teacher. I struggle greatly with motivation and need lots of pep talks. Morning workouts aren't feasible in my house due to others living here and my lack of functioning that early in the morning. Workouts with a partner are also not feasible since my afterschool schedule fluctuates wildly. My problem is that after I give everything I have to my students (I am not a teacher who sits down very much) and attend the plethora of after school commitments, I don't have the energy I need to work out. All that I want to do is veg and be lazy. I need to loose about 15 pounds. I always make great plans to go walking after work or come home and exercise, but they are always short lived, overly ambitious or something happens that derails me and my plans. Then I end up beating myself up. I would like to start using my total gym for 10 minutes several times a week because if I can't start spending 30 minutes a week on my health then I am really in trouble. I am concerned because when I have set goals in the past I don't usually get past 10 minutes of whatever I am trying to do because I don't like the way exerting myself feels- sheesh, that is pathetic, don't most people love the exercise high? Not me, I dont get that far, all that I can think about is how much I hate exercising. Hopefully I can follow through, especially since I work hard to teach my students self-responsibility and realistic goal setting; I need to follow my own teaching. Any suggestions for staying on track? Id like to be a little bit lighter and stronger by my brithday in March. Thanks!

This virtual stopwatch makes tracking exercise a snap!
