Secrets of Success

Even If I Don'T Feel Like Working Out...



If I have a day where I get home and I am just beat from the day, I still exercise.

I will watch my favorite TV show and during commercials I will get up and start stretching my body out. Then when the show comes back on I rest and when the next commercial comes on I will do lunges, then rest. Next commercial I will do a few pushups and stretch again.

Something it better than nothing at all!

  • I do my stretches before I get up. I have to or I wouldn't be able to get up! Once THAT is accomplished most of the time I can then move around without a muscle spasm. emoticon - by MOONGLOWSNANA

    Great idea for all to remember. Seems to be a lot of commercials, so we can really get a great work out. Running in place, walking lounges,jumping jacks, the list is endless. Thanks again for sharing. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon - by DEARTOMYHEART

    Usually, if I don't exercise in the morning, I don't exercise. This is a good idea.

    i do the same thing. I might do crunches during one commercial or I might do some strength training with some weights. Every little bit helps! - by THINKPINK06
