T.V. on the Treadmill

I hate to admit it but I love watching TV on the treadmill. I often extend my workout time to finish watching a program. I also like watching exercise-based programs (Tommy Europe's Last 10 Pounds or Bulging Brides) while I workout. Seeing what a difference ten pounds makes can be quite amazing.

Walking Outdoors

I walk outdoors not on my treadmill. Outside I walk to a point turn around and walk back no matter how my knees feel! I take an inventory of everything around me to block the pain and keep going. I see the beauty of the sky, sun, trees, birds, people's perfectly mowed lawns. Mind over matter works!

No time to exercise

I do a few wall push ups, knee lifts and/or squats when I use the bathroom. That way I get in a little exercise all the time. Those little bits add up-you'll see a difference after a few weeks!

Pedometer as Fashion Accessory (or something)

Along with my watch, cellphone, glasses, wallet and car keys, I do not leave home without my pedometer. If nothing else goes right that day, I still can log in my steps. On those "inactive" days, I've been surprised & pleased by the numbers!

Working out at Home

I love exercising at home. It saves money and I can choose when I workout. My collection of workout DVDs grow each year. I don't have to pay gym memberships or worry about the weather. Plus, I don't have to fight for machines. I always set a time that I plan to workout so I don't get lazy.

Find your love

Keep trying new exercises, aerobics, dance, zumba, cycling, until you find the one that you love. After searching for 10 years, I finally found mine AND THAT has made all the difference.

Personal Trainers

While at the gym, I often watch or 'sneak a peak' at what the personal trainers are doing with their clients. They rarely use the machines/cardio machines. They often use weights, and their own body weight. I have learned a few new tricks by watching them! It's like getting a personal trainer free!

Commerical exercising

Use an exercise ball to do crunches on during commercials. You can do different types of crunches during different commercials, then balance on the ball during your TV show. I can do at least four different sets during a typical show.

Meeting new people in the Gym

I find it motivational to talk to other people in the gym. They have good ideas and help push me when working out on the Elliptical, Treadmill, Bike or involved in taking fitness classes. I workout at the gym at work and it has close to 500 members (4000+on campus) & 3 staff that really motivate me.

Chocolate Fix

Instead of a candy bar, try a sugar-free, reduced-calorie Jell-O chocolate pudding snack with a squirt of nonfat whipped cream topping. Eat it with a baby spoon to savor it longer.
