How Do You Fit Exercise Into Your Schedule? / I Got My Treadmill!
Hi all!


If you exercise, when do you make time for it?

I've recently become aware that my clothes aren't fitting like they should, and I'm more than willing to accept that the fault doesn't lie with my washing machine. I'm sure it must have been my over-indulgence in chocolate.

I'm not what you would consider overweight...y'all would be tsk, tsking me for saying anything if you saw me. But I know my body and see myself unclothed.

Now that you have that mental image...

Anyhow, I have a couple of problems...

One: Motivation
Two: Time

One could argue that there's not enough time in the day.


Ideally, what I'd love to have is a treadmill. Of course, my budget will not allow for that.

So, I need to get outside and walk in the beautiful neighborhood I live in.

Easier said than done.

I have managed to walk three days in a row. I even got up at 5am this morning and walked...was so wonderful...72 degrees...took one of the dogs...

I will say that I feel so good afterward...makes me feel bad for hemming and hawing about it.

Anyhow, how do you get yourself motivated, and what are some ways you've discovered that help you fit it into your busy schedules?
