Consistency With Exercise

This Sparked Me!

Having the same routine on a weekly basis keeps me focused. I vary the CDs and the type of exercise, but I strive to maintain at least 30 minutes daily first thing in the morning. Having a schedule keeps me on track.

MORE INFORMATION:
I have a large selection of exercise CDs and a variety of small, space saving items like stretch bands, hand weights to use with my workouts. Convenience is the key.

    I prefer varition -- each day a bit different (of course I have my favs but I can t least mix them up and am always looking for new 'stuff'

    I change it up. First day, elliptical, second day, DVD like Biggest Loser - Cardio max, third day, elliptical, fourth day, DVD like Jillian's 30-day, fifth day, elliptical...You get the point. Today is a DVD day!!!

    30 minutes daily with some particular types of exercises (...some that I can do and I enjoy to do) - that works for me. But I can't determine myself to do them in the morning :) Anyway, the idea to keep a adaptable routine I think it's good.

    I have been telling myself this all along - that I need to choose certain times of the day to exercise, and stick to it. Make "appointments" to workout, whether it be the treadmill, aerobics, strength training, etc, as long as it's the same times each day...or at least as close as I can get to it! Thanks for the spark - I'm new here, and I can use all the help I can get! emoticon

    Thank you for sharing your secret emoticon
Consistency with exercise is a big problem for me, but......I KNOW that I have to exercise for fitness & cardiovascular reasons.
I LOVE doing activities outside, but also use DVDs at home.

Peace & happiness to you and yours,
Denise
