Motivational Quote - There are 1,440 minutes in a day. Can't you spare 30 of them for exercise?

When it really comes down to it, exercising doesn't take up that much of your day. If you can't do 30 or 60 minutes at a time, break it up into smaller exercise sessions. It all counts!

How can I send myself quotes that I can have at work, without having to login to sparkpeople from my work computer?

This is one of those quotes that is priceless. You can always do 5 minutes here and 10 minutes there. It all adds up to better health. Best wishes everybody.

I faithfully worked out from September 2013- March 2014, I ate better and exercised for at least 30 - 60 minutes 4-5 times a week, I lost 50 lbs. In March I stopping working out regularly but I ate better most of the time since them I have gained back 5-10 lbs. Now I am 2 pounds heavier than I was in March, I promised myself I would never see 300+again. I started working out again regularly again in September each month I get better. Working out & eat right is worth it. This past weekend I wore an outfit I purchased 3 years ago that I swore I would lose the wait to wear it – I finally did. I purchased shoes (no longer need wide width shoes) and pants (from 26-28 to size 22) the past weekend I was actually smiling while shopping it has been years since I smiled and shopped at the same time. Take it slow walk around the block, walk up and down your steps for 5 minutes. Just start you will get better. Right now, 30 minutes is the most I can do but I will be back at 60 minutes of cardio and I am going to add strength training by the end of this year. Good Luck everyone.

If I want an excuse, to not exercise, I can find one. No doubt....I have heard them all.
Everyone can do some kind of exercise, unless they are in a coma, ask your Dr.
I see the gym as an appointment, no excuses, just do it..... if I walk in the door and still don't to be there, I give myself permission to leave. It has happened only once, in over 16 years.
I view my diet much the same way. Unfortunately, I give myself permission to eat more than I should! Doh!
