Go to bed hungry

In the past I ate for many reasons - not just because I was hungry. I find that "counting calories" reminds me that when I get that hunger pain at 10 PM I should just go to sleep instead of pouring myself a bowl of cold cereal. I'm learning to appreciate the feeling of hunger.

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.

Eliptical Vs. Stationary Bike

Check how many calories you burn on different equipment. You might move to the elliptical and up those calories burned in the same time.

One Minute Yoga

Resistant to starting exercise, I used the OMY team to get me going. I knew that keeping a small promise (just one minute) would start me moving again and it really did!!

Wii "Just Dance"

I tried this out the other day and I am addicted! You do real dance moves to fun music (current and older). I danced for 10 songs (took about 30-40) and I burned 325 cal according to my HRM. It didn't feel like exercise!

Always keep a gym bag packed in your car. You never know when plans fall through or you get an unexpected schedule change. Hit the gym!
