Change it up!

Don't be scared to try a new class at the gym. Changing it up is good for your body & you might notice the results you want quicker!

Play with your kids

I've found that if I start playing an active game on the Wii (we have a couple of dance games and balance board games) that if my kids are around they want to "play" too. It is a win-win in my books as we have fun together and they are moving. Try frisbee or tag if the weather is good and have fun

Watch it!

I get some of my favorite tv shows (Friends, Sex and the City, Bones, etc.) on DVD (usually from Netflix) and ONLY allow myself to watch an episode if I'm working out! Plus, it helps the 45 minutes to an hour go very fast! emoticon

Forget to Log Yesterday's Fitness?

The points STILL count even though they don't appear for the day you record them. So, if you want Sparkpoints for your workout, then you can certainly record the next day.

No Pedometer - There's an App for That: Cardio Tracker

I had my Omron pedometer stolen (sniffle) so I was on the fence about buying a new one or a BodyBugg and then I searched on my Droid Cell Phone Market and found "CARDIO TRACKER". This App uses GPS to track your route whether your walking/running & tracks miles, time, calories burned, & it's FREE!!!

15 Minutes of Fame

Exerc. a min of 15 mins. per day. emoticon
Wake up a few mins. earlier to exerc. before work! You give to yourself and health, before handing your day over to the world. I alternate between a kettle bell workout, emoticon or jumping jacks/aerobics. emoticon It wakes me up! emoticon

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
