Exercise with friends /// Over the summer a friend and I met at the local track a few mornings a week. When I woke up and wanted to skip, knowing she was there waiting for me kept my booty on the move.
Join a class /// Same memo as exercising with friends. There is a time and place and others are waiting on you. Here’s my favorite class option for mamas.
Have an event on the calendar /// When I’ve got a 5K on my radar, I stick to my running schedule. If I don’t, I know I’ll crash and burn and no one wants that.
Plan ahead /// Every week when I meal plan I also try to pencil in my exercise times.
Utilize the UP24 Band /// When I first started tracking my sleep and activity with the Up24 I really had no awareness of how much I was moving each day. With the band I’ve been able to set goals and work towards them on a daily basis. After dinner, if I see I’m a 1,000 steps shy of my goal I’m motivated to take the kids out on an evening walk to finish the day strong. Or, if my nap didn’t push me over my sleep goal I’m a wee bit more anxious to get to bed at a decent hour. Seeing 100%+ completion any given day is totally motivating to me. The simple act of being aware, has been great accountability.
