I'm aware that not everyone has the privilege to workout in the comfort of their own home but havin exercise equipment such as an elliptical or treadmill, & strength training DVD's, like P90X or Jillian Michaels' is so convenient. Havin the option to simply go workout in your basement with your favorite series/show/movie on makes it that much easier to workout. Plus, not havin to go outside & drive in the cold makes it more motivating to get your fitness on bc you don't have a reason not to.
I've finally figured out that if I workout in the morning, I'm sure to get my workout in without excuses. So along with my wake up alarm clock, I set the alarm on my phone, eat breakfast, grab some water and get in my workout. No excuses or guess work.
The first time I lost a significant amount of weight...I would "sneak" in exercise here and there. Taking the stairs, parking in the farthest spot from the mall/groccery store, or purposely making two trips up and down the stairs when I probably could have done it all at once. Sounds a little silly..but it adds up! On top of regular exercise and eating right, I believe this really helped me reach my goal!
I always thought eating more was a horrific idea, but since I've started eating a BIG breakfast, a big lunch and a light dinner (with 2 moderate snacks in between, maintaining 1,200-1,500 cals a day) I look and feel better. Who would have thought! Making a good decision in the morning often leads to good decisions throughout the day. :)
