When I get bored of my normal routine I try to change things up by going to the zoo or a museum or park to walk around. Usually you are so busy with looking at animals or attractions that you dont realize how many miles you walked!

I host fitness walk groups every Saturday morning for up to 2 hours and 6.5 miles of aerobic fun. All ages and fitness levels. Rain or shine (no ice, no storms). Helps me to help other move, while making exercise fun! Look me up if you are in my neck of the woods! FACEBOOK.COM/BEFITWALKING!
Be sure to bring: 1. Your water 2. Your energy 3. Your pedometer 4. Your friend 5. Your energy!
This is a site which will use your desired walk/run/cycle times and recommend songs with that tempo for you to listen to while working out. For example, if your desired time for a mile is 17 minutes, it will give you tons of songs from different genres with that same tempo. This site has really jazzed up my playlist and made exercising fun again.
My 8 year old daughter is getting a little chunky, I don't want her to have my weight problems, so we are now working out together every week day. She keeps me motivated and on track...it's also making exercising fun for her.
