Just 5 minutes

When I was first starting to exercise, I coaxed myself with the promise, "Just 5 minutes! If you hate it, you can stop. Just 5 minutes." Knowing I was "allowed" to stop made me more consistent. Years later, it still works on days when I don't feel like it - and those are few and far between!

Running - Take a Break!

I am training for a half marathon and I have read that it is actually just as important NOT to run a few days a week as it is TO run...so take a break! :)

Have Breakfast for Dinner

When things get boring and you are in a rut, change it up! I find it a welcome change to have breakfast for dinner, dinner for lunch, and lunch for breakfast. Switch it around and see what happens. It might make you think of some changes to your meals that you hadn't thought of previously.

Keep trying

This is the most basic idea in the world, but it's taken me 30 years to figure it out myself. Try new foods. Try new workouts. Try new teams. Find out what makes you happy (health wise)and will stick with. Keep trying to find answers and you will be rewarded for your efforts.

From PJ's to work out clothes

I put my excercise clothes out every night on my dressing table bench next to my bedside table so when I get out of bed I always put them on and work out. It kind of takes excuses out of play.
