Good excuses

I work in the city. I try to find an excuse each day to run an errand that requires me to go on at least a 10 min walk. Anything to try and get a few extra steps in.

Fewer Chiropractor Appointments

I have been seeing a chiropractor for several months due to a degenerative bone disease in my neck which causes pain in my shoulder. However, since I started doing yoga and strength training, I have been able to cut back on my appointments from every week to every three weeks.

Abs Motivator

When I am strength training my core I take my shirt off and do it in front of a mirror. Seeing exactly WHY I am doing this while working out helps me stay motivated to work that much harder!

Just commit to 5 minutes

If you tell yourself you will just do five minutes, then you know you can fit that in just about anywhere. Then, most likely, you will continue once you get started. Before you know it, you've put in 30 minutes. And you can always stop at five if you have to.

Avoiding Procrastination and Lack of Determination

9 mo. ago, I was on a roll. I walked everyday & I felt terrific! I was burning more calories than I would eat in a day which helped me lose more weight. Then life happened & I put off what I could do tomorrow. However, tomorrow never came. Don't stop doing what works, jump back up and keep walking.

Park farther away

I work full time and find it difficult to get all of the walking in that I want to do every day. One thing I've learned to do is to park farther and farther away in the parking lot of my building at work. It forces me to walk in the morning and the evenings and it also forces me to be on time.
