When I'm super tired and just don't think I have the energy to exercise, I tell myself "just 10 minutes". Some days, once I start, I can do more and some days, I just do the 10 minutes. Either way, at least I exercised a few minutes.
I have always been an "all" or "nothing" kind of gal...meaning I ate the whole container of ice cream or none at all....the whole bage of chips or none at all. I am pretty sure some of you know what I am talking about. After celebrating my 1 month SP Anniversary and a weight loss of 11 pounds I want to share a secret of success...Moderation. Everything in moderation...food, exercise, rest and fun!
One of the greatest freedoms you can have is voting. It is one of the few times that your voice can actually be heard. Take the time and let the government know what you think. If you don't, we don't want to hear complaints from you later.
Whether you are looking for advice when it comes to exercise, nutrition, losing weight, or any number of things don't feel like you have to listen to it all.
After having a couple of days of not logging in, I realized that rather than looking at logging in SP as a big task or something that requires a lot of time/effort just treat it like maybe your Facebook or email. When you check your emails, do a quick login to SP, blog/post/browse/read as per your convenience and whenever possible multiple times a day. When it seems like a small casual task you wont dread doing it.
Add a challenge in your routine to supplement the cardio and strength training you already do! I am starting the 100 Pushup Challenge in a couple days. It's something that isn't too time-consuming and is easy to fit in on the days I don't have an hour to commit to working out. Challenges are setup to have a goal to work towards, are usually short-term, and are measurable goals - a great thing to add into your mix to change things up a bit!
