I took a class in weight lifting for women. It was hard....but fun.

Horseback riding and Grooming

I have 3 horses and grooming them and riding one five days a week really gets your muscles working. And since they are animals there is no excuses because they HAVE to be cared for.

sitting at my computer

When I am sitting at my computer, I set a timer for 50 minutes and when it goes off I get up and move for 10 minutes. This can get me over an hour of exercise in during a workday.

Walking

Instead of jumping in the car to go to the Post Office. It gives me an extra 20 minutes of exercise everyday! The return trip is all uphill! emoticon

When i feel like stopping

When I am exercising and feel like stopping, I ask myself, "what's one more minute"? Sometimes it's "Can you just do 5 more minutes" (depending on how hard the workout feels.) I can do this for just ONE MORE MINUTE. And then I stay focused on just that one minute. Eventually, I string the minutes along until I have completed my workout.

Take an extra lap

For me, I'll be more conscientious of moving, and I'll take the longer way. So if I get up to visit a co-worker, I'll go a more roundabout way to get to her or if I simply go to the kitchen for a snack, I'll make sure to walk an extra lap around the house before getting what I desired. Taking those extra few steps keep me going, motivated and pumped throughout the day

Not Really A Secret - Adopting those of others.

I've been parking farther out, working / moving faster when doing chores & housework, and being more mindful of not sitting so long without getting up to move.

Clean to Lose

I find spring cleaning chores that require a lot of energy, energy that I didn't have even one week ago. Great way to exercise and the pay off is a very clean house.

Exercise

I have a golf mat and hit 60 balls per day. I love to hit my wedge and I have room to swing away. On the course I love when I have a wedge shot into the green. I call it my backyard wedge shot, and I am now pretty good at it
