Sleep in your work out clothes

I try to workout when I first wake up so if I sleep in my shorts and tee shirt then I'm almost dressed and ready to go as soon as my feet hit the floor. It also helps if I have breakfast laid out, so I just have to flip a switch and slice a banana.

Rise and shine

Exercising or walking in the morning is a great way to start your day, makes you feel so alive and energetic. I wasn't doing any of this months ago, and since I started doing this again, I feel much more alive and energetic than I have in years!

Strength Training is Key

Strength trainiing is changing my life for the better! I alternate days of working my arms and doing some light cardio with days of strengthening my thighs and abs. It's helping me lose weight and feel good about how my body looks! In fact, I even blogged all about it.

Early runs

I find that when I do my exercise early in the morning, it leaves me with energy for the day, and more time to spend with my kids in the evening.

Walking/Jogging

If you don't feel like you can jog at all, start out by just jogging to the 1st telephone pole, house, mailbox, whatever. Then walk the rest of the way. After you're comfortable with that, try the next pole, house,mailbox.

Break up the workout time

I'm having a lot of success with breaking my workout time into 2-3 segments throughout the day. I get out first thing in the morning for a 20-30 minute walk around the neighborhood before getting ready for work; I schedule on my calendar an hour for lunch but use at least 30 mins of it for walking again; then, if the weather is good and I'm lucky, I finish the day at home doing some more cardio and some resistence training. It's definitely working for me and isn't daunting!

Early riser

I get me exercise in first thing in the morning so that I can't have any excuses later in the day for not doing it.

Early morning work out?

If the best time for you to work out is early in the morning, but, like me, you begrudge getting up sooo early . . . get everything ready the night before. For example, I work out to emoticon , so I make sure the DVD is in the player before I go to bed, my water bottle is full and in the fridge, my work out area is clear and I go to bed in my work out clothes!
The only thing I have to worry about is getting up and exercising . . . no worry about all the prep!

Strength Training

Strength training is a secret that many people simply don't know about since they are not athletes in training.

A Brand New Exercise - Highly Effective !!!

Focus on your cheek muscles - just above the jaw. Now contract them so that they pull back and upward toward the ears. Contract hard enough so that your lips part slightly and your teeth show. Outstanding. Keep that up.
