*Situational Exercisers: The Perpetual Excuse*
--------------------------------------------------------------

If youíve been following my newsletters, or if youíve been paying attention to the stories of people who have started working out, youíll notice something that all of these individuals have in common. Almost every one of them has some 'problem' to overcome which, conceivably, could prevent them from sticking to a regular exercise schedule. Perhaps they are a single parent with a full-time job, or they work long hours. Perhaps they have a medical problem that makes it difficult and painful for them to exercise, or they have failed to stick to so many exercise programs in the past that motivation and confidence are at an all-time low.

*Frequency is Key with Weight Training*
----------------------------------------------------------

Most beginner weight training routines call for two or three weight training sessions per week, each involving a full body workout that targets all of the major muscle groups. A common weight-training misconception is the notion that intermediate and advanced exercisers should perform 'split' routines whereby they exercise each major muscle group just once per week: for example, performing leg exercises on Monday, chest, shoulder, and triceps exercises on Wednesday, and back and biceps exercises on Friday. The argument: that this allows more sets to be performed for a given body part, which will cause further development in that body part. Click here to read more: Frequency is Key with Weight Training

*Health Problems That Improve With Exercise*
-------------------------------------------------------------

Many of us are motivated to exercise primarily by the want to look good. However, sometimes we forget just how much exercising improves our health, either by curing health problems we have currently, or by preventing future health problem from cropping up. Still need incentive? Regular exercise effectively takes 5-10 years off the average personís actual age (called your effectual ageóthis can be higher or lower than your chronological age, depending on how you treat your body).

*"I want to tell my body what to doó
not the other way around!
And I want to be a hottie!"*
----------------------------------------

These are Marla Martorilliís motivations that have driven her to exercise four days per week with a trainer, and sometimes a couple of days per week on her own since early June 2005. While many people want to get in shape for appearance reasons, and Marla certainly did too, her primary concern was to take control of her medical issues.

Quick Tip:

Find one not-so-healthy food that you feel you can do withoutóforever. Think of something that you donít necessary love to eat, but you sometimes will just because itís THERE. Once you swear yourself off that food forever, youíll save thousands of calories painlessly over the years, and should prevent unnecessary weight gain as a result!

Easy Calorie Savers:

--Choose regular salad dressings, but cut them with Ĺ vinegar and Ĺ dressing for a 50% calorie savings. One tablespoon of the average dressing contains over 100 calories!

--Eat open-faced sandwiches, or use a low-carb wrap instead of 2 slices of bread/

--Have a Ĺ cup of ice cream with a Ĺ cup of fruit such as strawberries, rather than 1 cup of ice cream.

--Satisfy your chocolate craving with a low-fat treat such as hot cocoa, tootsie rolls, or fudge bars.

--Skip the starch in your evening meal some nights of the week, opting for just lean protein and veggies.

Need Some Accountability?
