If you aren't a morning person, and I'm not, after work is definitely the only time. Luckily this time I have a workout buddy (my husband) who works from home and has his own set of motivations. So as soon as I get home, one of us says, "What time are we leaving for the gym?" I think we're finally in the groove, because when I was on break, we even found time to work out on our roadtrip.

Oh, and I'm an administrative assistant at an elementary school, counting down until my retirement at the end of this school year!!! Then I'll be working out during the day. emoticon

These are my words to live by: The best inspiration is not to outdo others, but to outdo ourselves.

As a fellow Texan, I totally understand. I have the same problem, I hardly even feel like getting out to mow the yard during the peak of the summer. I do try to see it as an opportunity for exercise and a chance to cleanse my body by sweating out all those toxins... just have to keep water handy!

Hi, I'm Terry. I probably have one of the oddest exercise practices on this list. I am an amateur genealogist. Every day after work (if it isn't raining, grrrr), I go to one of the oldest cemeteries in town and photograph grave markers for other genealogists. Since there is not one bit of flat terrain in this cemetery, my doctor told me to count is as hiking. The ground is uneven, there are many trees and some of the graves are even sinking.

I know this sounds macabre, but I really enjoy doing this. I am getting my exercise in and I am doing something to help someone else. I usually get about 45 - 60 minutes in each weeknight (weather permitting). On Saturday, I spend more time because I am photographing all the markers in the old potter's fields (areas reserved for folks too poor to afford actual plots). Many of these graves are unmarked so I want to record the few that are marked for posterity.

It's nice to meet you all. Terry

Change the way you are looking at this. Instead of 13 minutes past and 13 minutes back, look at like this: In less than 30 minutes a day, I can change the course of my life!!!!! It's just 30 minutes of drive time. Effortless drive time. YOU CAN DO IT!!

I have been working out after work forever. But sometimes I need that extra kick to get going and hope this will be it. I live in Texas, so right now it isn't too hot and I can go home, change into my running clothes and hit the very quiet, very rural street I live on for my miles. However, soon I will have to drive past my house 13 miles to the gym and then 13 miles back. Somedays after a long day of work and an hour drive home, it's almost more than I can make myself do. But I just can't run outside in 100+ degrees.
