Do what YOU love!

When you begin your exercise program, you have to choose something you enjoy, otherwise you will not be miserable and end up potentially failing.  

I know this from my own experience and it's taken me a while to figure that out.  

I've tried structured plans and have participated in complete rounds of various programs but I have the kind of personality that gets bored easily.  I need constant change to keep myself happy.

I aim for some sort of cardio activity at least 5-6 days per week for 30 minutes.  It might consist of Turbo Fire (which I LOVE!), a walk on the treadmill while catching up on a show that I've DVR'd or some belly dancing.

When you find that your activity is one in which you enjoy, you're more apt to following through with each day.  And then, each day that you do it, it will become a consistent and healthy habit.

What are some physical activities that you enjoy doing?
