  • As I sit here postphoning my treadmill workout, I really appreciated this article. IŽll go do it now, start at 10 minutes. Perhaps IŽll fell like doing more once I get started.

    My knees will not tolerate jogging and jumping jacks but I CAN add 5 minutes more to my walks. Five minutes a day adds up. - 10/23/2011 10:31:44 AM
  • For me, this is an amazing alternative because I've always had this "all or nothing" mentality when it comes to exercise. Additionally, consistency has been a major struggle for me when it comes to diet and exercise, so I'm super stoked to attempt this solution. - 10/23/2011 10:15:44 AM

  • The Wisconsin Milwaukee Team has a challenge on Right Now, that is very very very similar to this article. As a matter of fact, I just huddled in on it, on Monday, 3/28/11 and began the challenge a few days before Monday.

    I wonder how am I to track these small challenges to my fitness tracker, as it is I am exercising in small bits and trying to remain consistent with my scheduled fitness plan. I appreciate the motivational pointers within this article. - 3/30/2011 1:54:51 AM

    I love this idea! I am struggling with going like gang-busters and then quitting for a week, then going again for a week, then quitting for a week. I think I should try this! I will! - 3/22/2011 9:50:02 AM

  • The second person in the article: that could very easily be me. I look forward to doing what she "will" do. - 10/29/2010 12:56:39 PM
  • Mr. Spark must have a crystal ball because I feel he wrote this article for me. I just can't seem to motivate myself. I'm tired all the time, when I get home from work all I want to do is lie down. I took a good assesment of myself over the week-end and know I need to start eating the right foods, take Vitamins and exercise. I check this email this morning and SURPRISE I find this article. IiT WAS A GREAT SHOT IN THE ARM. - 10/25/2010 9:34:33 AM
  • I remember when I first started to workout last year. I was 250 lbs. I dieted down to 230, then I started out slow with old videos, maybe 3 days a week until I felt stronger. Now I'm 157 and working out 5 or 6 days a week. Working out is second nature now. I always feel better after a good sweat!!! - 10/25/2010 9:07:49 AM
