Idea #5 on How to Become an Exercise Addict:
Find something that you like to do – something that helps you get your mind off your daily worries and also keeps your eyes off the clock while you workout. There are so many different options available, there is no reason to force yourself to endure a Spin class everyday if you hate it.
At Live 2 B Healthy, we like to talk about how important Muscle Confusion is. By switching up your routine and activities each day, you prevent your body from getting into the groove and hitting a training plateau.
Yoga, running, walking, weight-lifting, Zumba, spinning, Pilates, roller skating… Try em all and rotate them regularly!

Idea #3 on How to Become an Exercise Add

Idea #3 on How to Become an Exercise Addict:
When the alarm goes off, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER hit the snooze button! It’s a very difficult habit to break, and once you get going on it, you are quite likely to become a Snooze Button Addict, rather than an Exercise Addict. Also, if you set your alarm next to a bedside lamp and switch it on at the same time as you shut off your alarm, you will give your brain an extra jolt.
I heard of one guy who had such a hard time breaking the snooze button habit, that he began setting his alarm across the room so he had to get up to turn it off. It worked for him!
