Weights before cardio

After a quick warm up go to the weights (2-3x per week), make sure to start with the bigger muscles. This gets your body in great fat burning shape so hit the spin bike next! Don't forget the carbs after!

Working-Out First Thing in the Morning

In the past few years I've found out the working-out first thing in the morning works best for me. I don't have to come up with excuses later in the day for not keeping myself fit and healthy.

A Dime at a Time - Step Counting

I wear a pedometer every day and for each 1000 steps, I give myself a dime out of our coin jar and put it in a special piggy bank. It's only one dime at a time but I've got almost $30 saved toward my walking reward - a pedicure! On good days I earn over a dollar! $$$ - it adds up!

Set a Reminder in Your Calendar to Workout

I set a reminder in my calendar to workout. It pops up a reminder to go. I have to consciously dismiss it and usually don't do that until I have returned from the gym.

Daily Weigh-ins

I've found that weighing myself every morning is one of the best ways to keep from putting on weight and even to keep myself on track if I'm trying to lose a bit of weight (that I put on by stopping regular weigh-ins)

Do What you Can

Maybe you say you can't do exercise. I couldn't for a long time but after losing weight I enrolled in a gym and although I don't keep up with the young ones this 81 year old does what she can and it does make a difference in inches, bmi, strength, etc.
So I plan to keep going.

Solicit Positive Intervention; Explain Goals, Ask for Support

Purpose is to share goals with people in your inner-circle & solicit written feedback from people who care about you. Primarily from family members & long-time friends, people who would be directly affected by my current or possible future health concerns due to weight would participate.
