I have really learned that there is nothing wrong with vanity as my motivation. I *know* that I should be motivated by wanting to be healthy, being a better mom, etc... but honestly, embracing my vanity has helped me stay motivated more than anything.
I have learned that there is nothing wrong with me wanting to be a smoking hot woman, that turns heads and is confident in her own skin. I am embracing vanity.

Fail proof way to get in your 10 minutes every day
I do two sets of strength training exercises every time I go to the bathroom. I alternate upper body and lower body exercises every other day. My favorites are incline pushups and tricep dips using the bathroom vanity. Lower body favorites are squats, lateral lunges, single leg squats, and standing leg lifts. I also spend half my day (afternoons) at a standing work station at work. It helps with back pain and I avoid the afternoon slump.
No equipment needed and you hardly break a sweat. Three trips to the bathroom a day is your 10 minutes and you didn't have to carve out any time to do it or even change into your gym clothes!
The perfect arrangement for helping toilet paper hide in plain sight. Guests don't have to root around for a new roll in your not absolutely, positively tidy vanity, and you always know when you're running low.
