  11. CathyinShrewsbury says:

    I turn EVERY dropped item in my daily life (trust me, I drop a LOT of things onto the floor), into a squat. Instead of stooping to pick it up (which unless you have a perfect technique can be hard on your back and neck), I squat nearby the item and feel around to get it and push back up with the back of my heels, and the muscles in my thighs. It has literally given me a shape that I never had all through high school! I’m now in my forties ~ look WAY better than the day I got married (FAT FAT FAT in 2004)! Now a size 8. Finally out of the Large Women’s section of clothes, 12X, 14W, etc. etc. love the new clothes I have to choose from!

    • purejoy says:

      Wow. What an inspiration. With a back as bad as mine {late 40s}, squatting should be part of my repertoire. Congrats to leaving the 10, 12, and 14 behind! That is my hope one day.

    I work from home and juggle another part time job as well as trying to get my second novel done – I squeeze working out in whenever I can! My husband and I have a deal to get us both working out at least 4 days a week – I use the time he goes for a run to do my yoga or running workout too. That way we don’t feel like we’re missing out on time together.

    The idea of earning points to actually move my body is pretty appealing. As soon as my knee heals from my epic bike crash of July 4, I’ll be back at it. 🙁 And deodorant that does the trick in this Tennessee heat is certainly appealing.

    My best secret is definitely doing my work out first thing. It helps give me energy for the rest of the day, because if I don’t do it, then I barely have the energy to get my workout in later in the day! and I loved the squat to pick up everything idea! Genius!

  24. charlesandsara says:

    Holy smokes – every single day – you are my idol! I bought some DVD’s and have been using them at home. It took so long to drive to and from the gym, plus the gas $$ – that I am trying the home workouts to save time and $$.

    Going to the gym a few times a week is best for me. Makes me feel a lot better after a good work out.

  27. Kimberly says:

    I just joined a neighborhood gym last month.. I make it a priority to go in the morning so I don’t find an excuse later in the day 🙂

  28. Laura Cooper says:

    This is an old tip, but works for me.  I deliberately park as far away as possible when at a shopping center, mall, grocery store, etc.  I realize this may not work for those with small children, but carrying several bags through a parking lot the size of a football field several times over the course of a month can help!

  29. Kristen says:

    I don’t know if I have any good tips – I really need to be reading and applying the others’ tips! Ha ha!  I do think finding something you enjoy that has to do with exercise is huge, like your book-reading while you work out.  I have recently tried Zumba.  I really enjoy it but there is definitely a learning curve for someone as uncoordinated as I am!

  49. Janssen says:

    After a lifetime of eschewing early morning workouts, I’ve had a child and now morning is definitely the best time to go. I run with friends, so I have some accountability too!

  50. Forget stuff upstairs when you are going downstairs, and go back up again. Do this enough times in a day, and you are good to go!

  51. Marie says:

    Like you, I get to the Y to use the machines — elliptical & strength training. Since we don’t have cable TV, I exercise & “indulge” in cable at the same time.

  52. Tina says:

    I reward myself with exercise goals, if I set out to do 45 min of cardio 4 times in the week at the end of the week I buy myself a top or shoes etc.

  53. Casondra says:

    I run most evenings.  Training for the ATL 3 day, 60 mile breast cancer walk is no small feat.   I also have four kids 9 and under to keep up with so I stay pretty active doing that.

  54. Babysitting! My nephew is 19 months old and is on the move nonstop. 

  55. Kimberly says:

    I run marathons! 🙂

  56. helps me stay motivated. Knowing that my friends can see my runs and what my pace was motivates me to go longer and go faster. I’m just starting out but I’m going to start training for a half marathon. Plus, my sister is on it and there’s nothing better than some sibling rivalry! 

  57. Going straight to the gym after work. If I go home then it is over and I’ll never get there.

  59. Christine says:

    My best secret for staying fit is training my 10 and 7-year-old kids for youth triathlons….the distance is shorter than an adult tri, but it kick my tail every time!

  60. My elliptical is in the laundry room.  When I through a load in the washer, I tell myself to get on at least until it’s time to switch it to the dryer. (25 minute cycle). Sometimes I get into it and forget about the washer!

  61. purejoy says:

    Exercise has become a part of my life and so when I am not active, I suffer.  My husband suffers.  My daughters suffer.  Going to the gym or doing outside work-outs not only keep me in shape, but they also help me to be a better wife, mommy, and friend.  I also love being a part of an active community.  In my hometown, we have weekly beach runs in the summer, running groups, triathlon groups, and I have workout buddies.  Did I mention that I chase around 3 year old twins for a living?

    While you’re cleaning, while you’re working, or while you’re shopping, put on some music and GO TO TOWN. Close a door if you’re not ready to share your skills, but then dance your butt off through interpretive dances, recreation of musicals (west side story is my personal fave…bonus points if you can shimmy and shrug like the girl in the blue dress), and innovative moves, obviously. It’s an endorphin booster, and you’re working out without that icky term that makes exercise seem like more work than it has to be. lonyae dot a dot thomas at vanderbilt dot edu

    We have a pool in our condo complex so we’ve made it a habit to go almost nightly. They also manage to talk me into going when I don’t feel like it either, so I would have to say that my kids keep me going!

    When people ask me my fitness tip (secret) I say, have a 2 year old boy. I never stop moving. On a serious note, I like to take my son in my jogging stroller for a walk. He loves going for a ride and I get exercise.

    My best secret is listening to a really good audio book. I love to read but hate that you have to be stationary to do it. I only listen to my books when I am active. I look forward to getting back to my book and am more active because of it!

    My best secret is to not do it alone. If you have someone else being active with you it is hard not to keep going b/c you don’t want to let them down.

    Find something you like doing for exercise so it doesn’t feel like work!

    We’ve been doing family bike rides. I loved them as a kid. It was our Sunday “thing.” Now that I’m the mom I try to get us out there as often as possible.

    My best secret is to keep on working out even if you don’t feel like it. You will be happy that you did in the long run.

    If you don’t have enough time or strength to do an entire workout at once, break it up until you do.  I used to work out in five minute intervals until I built enough strength to do an entire workout.

    My best tip is to find something you really enjoy doing.  If you hate the exercise, whatever form it is, you probably won’t stick with it.

    My secret is to squeeze it in where you can. I get up and take a lap around the office every hour or two, and at lunch I’ll sometimes walk to the far end of the building and back.

    WWow- I’m going to have to enter this challenge. Points and prizes for the working out I do anyway? Genius! My gym gas a movie theater room with lights off and a projector screen playing movies. I go in there and totally get absorbed in the show. I can do an hour+ on the elliptical easy watching along. So fun!

    I’ve been enjoying swimming during the summertime, in our backyard pool. It’s fun & is good exercise…and it’s easy to walk right out the door and have it available to use. That’s my secret way of being

  199. My secret for getting fit (in my case) is that I have been getting up very early BEFORE work to go workout. I used to always say that I’d go exercise after work but was usually too tired from working all day. elangomatt at gmail dot com

    My best secret to staying fit is buddy-ing up! 🙂  Having  friend motivate you, or simply say “hey, i’m going to the gym, want to go?” definitely helps a lot. I’d feel horrid all day if i said, no too lazy. lol* Not to mention.. bikini season scares the heck of me lol*
