This is one of those "if I can do it anyone can" type posts. It is extremely easy for me to come up with a million and one reasons why I simply cannot get exercise on any given day - and all the reasons sound quite convincing, very sincere, and usually totally true.

Among them: zero time, absolutely must do xy or z, and sometimes just too darn tired. So a post about exercise-induced euphoria seems wildly out of character, but the feeling is too fabulous to keep under wraps.

For those on this path already, I count you among my inspiration. For others, here's a few secret weapons I have stockpiled to clear my own path to health and happiness. Escape routes are everywhere so this list is an (almost foolproof) way to keep myself moving and grooving.

Get your Gear On:
Keep athletic clothes in a dedicated place so that when the time is right everything is there, down to the hair ties, socks, sneaks, and headphones. I love the Power Y Tank and Groove Pant for any kind of action. And rev up a yoga practice with the Agility Pant from the super cool company Be Present.

Listen Up:
The right songs are a surefire way to set off that necessary spark. This play list is my current fave and leaves me ready to take on the world, or at least the day. Check out Run Hundred for a monthly refresher. Sync those smart phones and Move like Jagger!

Carve it Out:
Time is golden in all our days, so looking for huge chunks to dedicate to exercise is the fastest route to defeat. 15 minutes can make a big impact on body and mind, and here's a sample of how to work some quick magic.

Stay Inspired:
Find those special people who walk the walk and try to learn from them. We all have different strengths and most are happy to share their insight. Check out these two fabulous women I am lucky enough to know: Meredith and Lara - they both shine a very bright light. LIVESTRONG and Team in Training are two places that are near and dear and provide mountains of motivation.

A Place to Be:
Last but not least, try to schedule an exercise class (hopefully a favorite) for once a week. If you get off track on your own, it's never too far with a weekly check in. Try to find one that really breaks a sweat, it does a body good!
