I have found that when I schedule exercise for myself, and not allow myself to think it over I have no problem getting out the door and going to the gym or going for a walk. If I think to long... I think about how hard it will be and the 100 things waiting on my to do list and I don't do it!
Schedule your exercise time - the same time of day is ideal whether first thing in the morning or right after work etc..A time when you're less likely to 'think' yourself out of it! Also schedule something you enjoy, right after... like your morning cup of coffee.. Gets you motivated to get it done!

I was never a plain water drinker but have found a solution that works for me. I have a 21oz glass and use it with each meal to get in the water; I also drink 8 oz before bed...Water solution....SOLVED!
The bathroom runs are ridiculous but when facing goals we all must do what must be done to get the job done
While I am waiting for the hair conditioner to work its magic, I use that time to do waist twists with arm punches in the shower. I plant my feet solidly on the shower floor and twist back and forth while doing forward arm punches toward the shower spray. It gives me 2 minutes of strength training and core work, plus I use that 2 minutes wisely!
You can get up to 200 twists done!
