I find ways to build exercise into my day, because I think that every extra step helps. For me, that means getting off the train one stop earlier and walking about 10 minutes before I even get to work in the morning, taking a quick 10 minute walk at lunch, taking the stairs whenever possible, and parking further away when I got to a store. I do whatever I can to make those little extra steps count!

Finding the time to work out is something with which many of us struggle. I tend to multi-task, so I try to build exercise into my day in ways that fit in with other activities. My treadmill is by the laundry room, so I throw in a load of laundry before I start my run. While I run, I watch the news. I throw the laundry in the dryer before I start my strength training, and then fold the laundry while I do cool down stretches on my exercise mat. Laundry, news and a workout, all at the same time.
