Stand up Straight!

I can still hear my mother saying that to me 50 years ago!

Dress for Success

Wear your 'best' exercise clothes, regardless of where you exercise. If you have only one good outfit wash it more often if needed. Get rid of the old ripped faded baggy clothes and wear something that feels and look goods and makes you feel like an athlete.

Lose the All or Nothing Mentality

You don't have to do a zillion sets or exercise for hours. Just do SOMETHING. Having an "all or nothing" mentality will keep you trapped in an on again off again relationship with exercise!

Think of ALL movement as exercise

Studies have shown when people do normal everyday things, they can and will lose more weight if they think of the calories being burned. In the study, they had people doing things such as parking in the back of a parking lot and doing everyday around the house cleaning.

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!
