WHERE DID THE DAY GO? Is this a common question in your life? Many of us jam-pack so much stuff into our daily routines, seemingly there’s no time to relax for just one minute, let alone exercise. Lack of time is one of the most common excuses for not having a decent fitness regimen. But do you realize that in the time it might take you to go through your e-mail, you could fit in a good workout? We’re not talking about giving up 60 minutes either; all you need is 10.
I have decided to add the times I take my dog out to go to the bathroom for fitness, even if it is for 5 minutes, it adds up. And I am going to try some of Dr. Oz's green smoothie drink and one of the ones listed in this yoga site I look at. Just trying some new things to aid in my eating. Better choices is what I am trying to do.

Ok I needed a challenge, and this sounds like a good one to start with! 10 days and 10 - 10 - 10 minute work outs. I'd really like to make one of those each day 10 minutes with hand weights to start toning my arms for summer clothes!
I welcome any motivators:-) Thanks, Maureen

I can do this. I already have 3 days of 1 hour exercising scheduled at my doctors next week and plan to do exercises to videos on the other days. The doctor's office is only 4 blocks straight down my street. I can walk when weather is warm.
I have "The Spark", "SparkPeople Cookbook" and "Spark Solutions"
I set my ticker to my highest weight of 210 lbs because it gets upset and doesn't want to save when I gain weight instead of lose. on Dec 30, 2012 I joined SparkPeople and weighed 195.8

If you're looking for a way to fit fitness into your busy life, try the 10-10-10 plan. Forget trying to get to the gym for an hour (plus travel time). Instead, find 10 minutes, three times a day, to exercise at home or outside. That adds up to 30 minutes a day, which is enough to garner you some helpful health benefits. Once you have your 10-10-10 plan working smoothly, try to add 5 or 10 minutes to one or more of those workout sessions. Before you know it, you'll be working out for an hour a day without disrupting your schedule
Note:If you want to lose weight too, you'll probably need to ramp up the intensity and/or length of your workouts, and take a look at your eating habits too.
