Share the exercise tips and workout ideas that have worked for you.
I keep a stretch band at my desk and use it throughout the day.
I am a big believer in interval training on my treadmill. It helps keep me on it longer as less boring and keeps your metabolism stoked.
I find a great pedometer & for whatever reason, it makes me anxious to add steps to it! It's the OCD thing I guess LOL!
I've had cheat day on the weekend, then I work extra hard at the gym!
I used to think "Oh no...I HAVE to exercise today to reach my weight goals" but when someone suggested I think of it as "I DESERVE to exercise today" it changed my whole perspective and for the first time in my life I began exercising regularly and loved it! That was 2 and a half years ago.
I want to snack about 2pm each day. I just hop on the stair climber for a quick 10 minute workout. Snack attack is usually gone.
I have been trying to start running. It is way too intimidating if I try to run the whole time. So I walk for 90 seconds, then run 60 seconds. I switch off the whole time. There are podrunner intervals on itunes that help with the interval switch from faster to slower music and vice versa.
It takes your body about 7 minutes to warm up when doing cardio exercise. Keeping this in mind makes it easier for me to push past the urge to quit at the begining of the workout, and after this initial warm-up I'm good to go
I use the milage tracker to keep track of my walks with the girls (my dogs) I can map the route and have a weekly and yearly total of how far I walked. It is cool to come home and track the walk, guess how far we went, seeing that by going down that street I added this much.
