Today Elizabeth shared her secret for workout success:

Slow and steady is the best way to make it a part of your lifestyle.

That’s an important piece of advice that you should always keep in mind. If you start with unreasonable expectations–like going from not exercising to running a marathon in two months–you’ll only set yourself up for failure.  Like Elizabeth says, any time you sneak in a little exercise adds up: You could power walk around the field or climb bleacher steps when you’re attending your kids’ sporting events, for example.
