Play

Play on the playground with your kids instead of just watching from the bench. You'd be surprised at how difficult those monkey bars are after all these years! emoticon

Exercise

Try to make yourself exercise when you think you do not feel like it. You might be surprised.

The 10-minute Deal

On those days when you REALLY don't want to exercise, make a deal with yourself that if after 10 minutes you're still too tired/don't want to continue with your workout, that you can stop with no guilt. When I do that, nine times out ten I do my entire workout.

Leg Lifts

Driving to and from work everyday I do leg lifts. I feel this is helping tone my stomach muscles.

Find something fun!

I had to drag myself to the gym every time. Since I hated it, I did it as quickly as possible and left. No wonder I never made any progress... But when I decided to try the classes at my gym, I found I love low-impact aerobics, Zumba, pilates... Now I'm at the gym 6 or 7 days a week!

To make it just a little easier...

Don't think of exercising as something you HAVE to do, but something you WANT to do. I don't HAVE to do 15 minutes on the elliptical tonight and 15 minutes on the treadmill. I WANT to do them!! emoticon

Travel Smart and Healthy

Airport walking is a great way to squeeze in exercise when flying. Whenever I find myself with a 2 hour layover I make sure to spend at least an hour of that time walking laps around the airport. You can window-shop and people-watch just like when you're mall walking.

HIIT Training

High Intensity Interval Training really works. On the treadmill I like to do a 2 minute all out sprint then two minute moderate paced walk in between. Do this 15 times and you've done 30 minutes of cardio! emoticon

Dance through your day

I love to dance, and it's such a great form of exercise for full-body toning and cardio. I incorporate it into my day whenever I can. I just put on some upbeat music and dance through whatever I'm doing.
