I lay out my work out clothes the night before. When I wake up in the morning, I put these clothes on and go to Jazzercise class. It a great hook and it works.
i find that even 20 minutes of exercise a day helps me to enjoy life. i aim for at least 60 minutes of exercise a day. i find that regular exercise gives me energy,strength and patience. find something you enjoy doing and make it a regular part of your day.
Do it first thing in the morning even if it means getting up earlier than you would like. Very little intrudes on exercise time before 5 or 6 am but lots can happen as the day progresses.
P!nk is my workout jam. her songs give me such motivation that just make me want to tell everyone from my past "BAM I'LL PROVE YOU WRONG! I WILL MAKE IT! I WILL DO IT!"
The key to daily exercise is having a training partner who keeps exercise at the top of her priority list - just as I do. It really helps if we are at the same activity level and live near one another. I am very thankful to my training partner - she's a lifesaver.
When mowing my front lawn (push-mower!) I do my neighbor's small patch, too.
That's more calories burned for me, plus I get smiles!
Doing my cardio and yoga on the same day works well. I get hot and ready for yoga by doing the cardio first. I alternate days one day I'll do cardio and yoga and the next day I do strength training. It's working well for me.
When you're running/biking/jogging/walking/rowing/swimming and you want to stop, just tell yourself to get to the next lamppost (or tree, or recycling bin, whatever's nearby). Do this again and again, and you'll end up going much further than you thought you could
I don't always have time in the day to fit in 30 min. of exercise. I work on the second floor of my building and go up and down the stairs 4 or more times every day. I go down and up twice every time I use them and if they are empty I try to run one way.
