Exercising

This "secret" is based upon one I've read earlier. I find I must exercise early in the day. If I don't, I just won't do it! I'm trying to ensure I exercise daily, so if that means I must get us earlier, then I just must do it!

Isometrics

I can do isometrics on any part of my body whenever I want to.........walking, lying in bed, sitting in the car, standing at the sink... I don't like to do crunches, so many times a day, I'll suck and hold in my stomach for ten seconds. I do the upper and lower part of my stomach seperately.

Changing up my exercise routine

After a while my body gets use to the exercises that I am doing and stops losing weight. I find if I do new different types things my body kicks into gear again and starts to lose pounds. Try this when you get stuck.

"Road Trip" Fitness

I seem to "road trip" alot, so I had to start thinking ahead to keep my fitness on track! Whenever making hotel reservations, a good fitness room or pool is a priority for me. Even if the pool isn't big enough for laps, I can do exercises from my water aerobics classes for a good workout.

If only....

Unfortunately, there are no "secrets" other than making up one's mind to be healthy -- not to lose weight -- but to be healthy.

Don't just wait - move.

Don't just stand in line waiting to check out, walk in place. Don't just sit and wait, get up and move around. Waiting is a waste of time, make it worth something. If your at a resturant sit and do leg lifts.

Take the stairs

Exercise can come in all different forms. For example, avoid the front parking spot, park towards the back of the lot. Skip the elevator and take the stairs.

Forget the phone and email

I make sure at work that I get up every 15-20 minutes and walk a bit. I try to do most of my communications verbally so that I have to get up and move. My job is a desk job so it is easy to not move unless I make little efforts through out the day.

Do Something You've Never Wanted To

I've always hated running, but I started jogging on the treadmill. Now I love it! AND I've lost 6 lbs since I began 2 weeks ago! So challenge yourself with something you think you won't like. You may surprise yourself. I sure did!
