  • This is great. Some I am going to do this morning. I saved it. But the jumping jacks and a couple more I have to do later because my knee went from under me on Monday and it's not to good.
  • I have been walking alot. My job requires alot of walking and standing. I use the walking to my advantage . I have been able for three weeks to lose 2- 3 lbs a week. I just hope I can keep it off and burn more calories.
  • A fellow co-worker and I have decided to do stairs on our lunch break today! I'm going to try to keep it up everyday.
    I.m just starting off and a short workout is sooo much less daunting. Good advice!
  • I have, at one time, been all of those scenerios!!! I am starting all over again! Gonna do the 10 minute workouts and go on an exercise streak!!!
    I believe in this 100%. I started noticing celulite, and lots of it, on my legs.( And trust me, im the most unmotivated person.) so I started running up and down the stairs, at first I could barely do one full song, but now I can do one to two full songs off my iPod. I know it doesn't sound like much. But pushing myself to work out those first 3 days made me not be able to stop. I now do that every day after work. I even started noticing a difference, as I do know that everyone's bodies are different and some migt not see results this quick, it happened for me. I've been doing it for about 6 days now, and I can definitely notice that the cellulite has gone down alot. I am going to keep doing it and eventually keep stepping up the times, it's a challenge to see how many songs you can do, and the further you get the more motivated you are. My goal by the end of this week is to be ableto do 3-4 full songs a day. Start out little guys! Trust me it works!!!
  • I just cant seem to get it going! its my birthday, I dont want to let my health deteriorate but cant seem to stop eating bad! I am off for a cheesecake! someone help!
  • As I sit here postphoning my treadmill workout, I really appreciated this article. I´ll go do it now, start at 10 minutes. Perhaps I´ll fell like doing more once I get started.

    DONE! Been trying to pep myself up for months now, and this quickie (i just did wkout #6) was perfect. I feel fabulous, thx SP for the motivation!!!
  • This idea is nothing short of brilliant, and why this is Day 204 for me. Spark on!
    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.
  • 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.

  • 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.
    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!
