If you have a day where you feel completely unable to follow through with your normal routine, then just put in a couple of minutes of one exercise and later another exercise. Even the smallest effort gives a boost to your morale.

    I agree, and once you get started, you may continue on with your regular routine.

    Will DEFINITELY remember to do this, because I feel like a slug if I don't complete an entire workout. I have stairs in my home I can use; walk to library 15 min away, do 10 min on a programmable dvd. Thanks! emoticon

    Great idea, I try everyday to at least walk for an hour and over.

    So simple & steps add up to 1 giant step.

    I do this! My schedule often only gives me 10-20 minutes breaks throughout my day. So I'll do jumping jacks or jump rope etc. for 5 minutes when I can.

    You are so right...It keeps you from feeling defeated!
Go get some work in!!!
