Just do it!

Nike was more than right when they came up with the "just do it" campaign. Sometimes, I don't think when it comes to workout out...I just do! Those are the days I run when I don't want to, bike longer than I expected, etc. So next time you are debating about workout out, don't think...just do!

Kill two birds with one stone!!

Ever been working out, wondering what to do between sets -- sitting and waiting that 1-2 minutes? Well put that weight down and get off that machine and bang out 30-50 jumping jacks; or jump rope in place! You'll watch the fat just melt off as your metabolism is ROARING!

Get off the Couch

Sitting on the couch isn't go to help anyone lose the weight! Even if the tv is on find a way to move, stretch, use weights, do leg lfts..... The tv may be on but it doesn't mean people have to veg out!

Everyday Ways to get Fitness in

To get in a few extra steps and a little more workout, on my way home, I either get off the bus one stop before mine and walk or I don't take the bus at all and walk the mile from the train station.

Packing your workout in a suitcase

Need a workout while you travel? Pack a stretch (fitness) band. It does not weigh much or take up lots of space and can replace heavy weights. Check online for specific exercises!

Use a pedometer!

I purchased a rather inexpensive one at Walmart. I was surprised how many calories I burned by the end of the day. Moreover, I WANTED to walk more because the proof was in the numbers! So, ya get more motivated. I even walked during breaks at work.

recumbent biking and posture

When I am on my recumbent bike, I work hard at pressing my shoulders back as I am pedaling to work on improving my posture. It feels really great!

Keeping me exercising

The way I keep myself exercising every night is I download a audio book onto my mp3 player and listen to the story. I get so involved in the story that I want to exercise and forget how long I have been exercising. In order to find out what happens next in the book I have to go and exercise.
