Some days are so ugh-ly, I wonder how I can manage to even do 10 minutes of exercise! Thanks to my little dog, I know that I will get at least 20 minutes a day in, thanks to his morning and evening walks....he usually has such a great time and such a happy face that we walk even more!

I started with a commitment to do 10 minutes of exercise a day 109 days ago. Some days it was hard just to get that 10 minutes in. I gradually upped my daily goal to 15 minutes and shoot for 200 cardio minutes per week. But it started with a commitment for 10 minutes a day. THIS goal alone has been the most important change I've made while on spark people
I only count in my 10 minutes - walking in my neighborhood, getting on the elliptical, doing the WII, etc. I don't count, the time I'm walking in the grocery store shopping or gardening, though those activities also burn calories. I make it deliberate -put on my sneakers and do something different.
