Keep Exercising

This Sparked Me!

Don't take a day off from exercising in some way, even if it's for a few minutes.

I tend to miss too many extra days when I take a day off due to laziness. So, now I get on my bike even if for 15 minutes.

    Yes, you have to be consistent to what you are doing.
GINGERVISTA 9/3/2012 9:11:00 AM

    Couldn't agree more! And until my recent surgery, I'd gone over two years doing just that, even if I was feeling under the weather or the few times I just REALLY didn't want to do anything........minimum of 10 minutes was all it took!!! emoticon

    I just CAN'T make myself NOT Move for At Least 10 - 30 minutes EVERY Day. People usually tell me I need to take a Day Off, but I just can't make myself do that.
CHERYLSBUTT 9/3/2012 5:55:00 PM

    I so agree, it may not be a gym day

PUDINTANE68 9/3/2012 8:43:00 AM

    Yes, I think this does help. I exercise a lot but even if I have a busy day I make sure I get at least a 10 min video in not matter what.

LEANMEAN2 9/3/2012 8:11:00 AM

    I agree wholeheartedly.
CAM2438 9/3/2012 7:56:00 AM

    You are so right. I totally agree!
CMORISAK 9/3/2012 7:49:00 AM

    I need to find a way to get in 10 minutes a day even when I have too many other things to do
KELLYPAQ 9/3/2012 7:22:00 AM

    Very true. There's been times where I think I'll just take today off. The next thing I know 3 weeks has passed! If I truly don't have time for a lengthy workout, I'll at least go for a walk. The other day I had to stop at the local mall, so I did a lap (which is .6 miles) then went to the stores I needed to visit.
MRSTAZMAYO 9/3/2012 6:54:00 AM

    So easy to not exercise. If I just decide I'm going to do something everyday, there are no excuses!
EPATTEN79 9/3/2012 6:10:00 AM

    I agree. Always good to be doing something.
SUCCESS68 9/3/2012 1:16:00 AM

    Yes. Keeping a routine is so important to develop the skill.
CRYSSD85 3/28/2011 4:24:00 PM

    This is so true, it seems like when you take a break for a couple days it is so much harder to get back into the swing of things. And although you should never over work your body, I do believe that staying active everyday makes the days you go harder that much easier. Great tip!!
GRANDMA624 10/6/2010 11:47:00 AM

    I agree!! emoticon emoticon
