When you feel like skipping a workout and give excuses like being tired, be firm with yourself. Tell your lazy side to get over it! Works for me all the time. It's like speaking to a child, be firm and clear.

When you are on the phone/computer, watching TV, driving, or any other activity do stomach and butt kegels. I use TV commercials as a reminder to do them. Start with 20-30, then increase to whatever level you feel comfortable with. I do 50-75 every commercial in the evening.
I am less active from Jan-March and I find this a great way to firm up the muscles which in turn burns more calories
While I am working hard to lose weight, firm and tone my body, I find the tanner I am the better I look. At 37, I do not want to bake in the sun or use a tanning bed. So, I love this firming lotion, applied all over my body. It works slowly over 2-3 days and really looks natural with no streaks !
