Top Tips from Our Experts

Matt Lemmons, personal trainer, New York Sports Clubs in Stamford, Connecticut: "Get a twofer cardio and sculpting workout and burn more calories in less time by cutting out rests or adding one-minute bursts of jumping jacks between strength-training moves."

Nicole Williams, time and career management expert and author of Girl on Top: "Designate two blocks of time, morning and afternoon, to open and respond to e-mails. Checking every message as it arrives chews up valuable minutes and keeps you from being productive."

Carson Kressley, celebrity stylist and QVC fashion designer: "For grab-and-go gym style, pair a dark, boot-cut yoga pant with a fitted tank, both with at least 5 percent spandex: It's guaranteed to slim your shape."

In November I made up my mind that I was NOT buying a new closet so my son and I ran our first 5K together; he kicked my butt and waited for me at the finish line. We are now training as a team for a Triathalon. In addition to this all 3 of us me, my 14 year-old son and my 11 year-old son are parting in Living Heathly program in our state. Keep up the good work!! For all you single moms: get the kids involved to help motivate!

Adding to what mstaples2 wrote, what about those of us with kids that have homework and bedtime schedules to stick with each day...especially if you're doing it alone. The plan would be perfect, but it's the little factors like that that usually make it almost impossible.

I think it shows that most of us how time if we look for it. Get off of Facebook and lay down the phone for 30 minutes so you can do something for you.

I agree that it is a great motivation story, but what happens when you don't have the money to pay a fitness trainer, time management expert, or style guru, much less a partner that will share in your enthusiasm to work out? Having those tools at your disposal makes the task much easier. But what about those of us who don't?
