exercising with injuries

If you find yourself with a lower body injury, don't stop exercising, but rather focus on the upper body. If you are faced with an upper body injury then again, focus on lower body exercises. This way you will never have a reason to be without exercises in your daily routine.

Exercise TV

Rainy, too late to go to the gym. I flip through cable's On-Demand exercise TV. There are so many options, I don't feel like I have any excuse not to exercise when I can literally do it ANY time!

Work out first thing

Work out first thing in the morning. That way, you start your day energized, you can still go out after work, and nothing "comes up" during the day to stop you from doing it!

PLAN AHEAD~~ It's WORTH The EXTRA EFFORT!!!

Every morning when I log in on SP, one of myDAILY habits is to LOG IN 30 min. EXERCISE under "Other Goals" for THAT day. Now I don't ALWAYS KNOW what TYPE I will be doing-running,biking,hiking,walking....It's whatever fits into our family schedule and what we feel like doing that day....

Weeding, bending, burning!

To keep up with the weeds, pick a cool part of the day and devote 15-20 minutes a day to bending, burning and weeding. Not only will your body benefit from this activity, but your garden will flourish too!

Going to exercise if I want to or not

I always start to exercise whether I want to or not. After 15 minutes if I still don't want to I stop but usually I end up sticking with it because the endorphins kick in and I feel so much better. If I decide to stop that's okay too because maybe my body just needs a rest.
