Walking on the Water!

Well, I hope I have your attention now! My favorite activity is walking in the water as if I was trying to run or ride a bicycle. I have bought a couple of water noodles and I sit on one just like on a bike and peddle around in circles or back and forth. It really works your legs and arms as you stear yourself around the pool. The water provides quite the resistance and even though you might not feel too tired in the water, when you get out of the water, you can tell the difference!

invisible

You don't need a real jump rope or hula hoop or bicycle to get your exercise... just use your invisible ones ! You have them with you all the time no matter where you are !

Exercise more, spend less

When you go to the mall for a shopping spree, spend the first 30 minutes just walking laps. Then when you begin your shopping, you will feel even better about buying new clothes, and you will probably spend less because you will be tired sooner and want to leave earlier!

Stickers for Exercise on my Wall Calendar

I buy some colorful, positive stickers that others may use for their children's "sticker charts" and keep them by a wall calendar prominently hanging in my open kitchen/living area. I track the days I've met my exercise goals by slapping one of those on. The best thing is to see how many stickers are on each day/week/month. I even found some stickers that are motivational--they say "good job!", "excellent", etc. Works for me!

Sex for exercise!!

Ok so I know that a lot of us may not feel great about our bodies right now, but as we get in better shape and start feeling more confident why not let sex be a great way to exercise. I am sure that everyone can use their imaginations but you would be really surprised how many calories you can burn

Motivation

I have a treadmill downstairs and I have purchased a swimsuit that is two sizes down from what I am now. It is hanging where I can see it while I am on the treadmill. I can get the swimsuit on, but it will look so much nicer when I'm more fit.

Exercise: The triple-whammy

A thirty minute workout is more than a thirty minute workout!

1. You're not consuming any calories during your workout.

2. You're are burning calories during your workout.

3. You will continue to burn more calories in the hour after your workout.

Treating workouts like appointments

I treat workouts like an appointment, and I schedule them early in the morning. I take spinning classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7am, and I swim on Mondays and Wednesdays at 7am. Working out at the same time every day makes it easier to stay on track. Scheduling my "appointments" so early in the morning also ensures that nothing else gets in the way!
