I will agree with Rubystar2- get a dog! They make you do things you never thought you would do.

With all that movement of walking, What would you take with you in your Ipod or Similar device. Disco?? LOL maybe. Or some Ballet. OK I know that's a long shot. Tchaikovsky Swan Lake: Mazurka would be your motivator?? Even just the radio.
Aww heak, Just a thought.

I started getting exercise by walking to the grocery store and other similar places.

That is what I love about living in a city - everywhere I go requires a bit of walking. My schedule normally has me on a plane often and it gets even more difficult with jet lag and all of the eating take out and such. I often have to force myself to exercise which is not always fun, but it is necessary in my opinion. Even if I was not Diabetic I still would. I also find it enjoyable exploring all the new cities I get to see, which requires a lot of walking.

I know how you feel. I was diagnosed with type 2 about 3 months ago. I thought the hardest part would be the food but for me it's not. It's the exercise.

I've lost 20 pounds so far (which doesn't seem like a lot in 3 months, considering the changes I've made) and I can't seem to get the motivation I need to move more.

I have a busy high stress job and when I come home I'm exhausted. Am I making excuses? Probably. I do use the treadmill a couple of times a week, usually on the weekend. But it's a real struggle.

I want to like to exercise but I really don't. I feel like I' m doing so well with my new way of eating and my blood sugar level is really great (I'm taking metaformin as well). And I know I need to work out so how do I get into a routine? I'm overwhelmed.

I don't know of this will help or hurt, but for whatever it's worth, don't be so sure you "know" you have to exercise. Exercise is "world peace", we certainly can't chance knocking it in public! However, I "know" I DON'T have to exercise for BG control. It has nothing to do with it, although I still intend and like to do it when I can for other reasons.

In my experience, it only took adjustments to what I eat to completely handle the BG issue.

I 'know' that if you keep your BG, diet on course you probably will not need to exercise.

However, exercising keeps you in shape, keeps you from getting flabby. What are you doing instead? Watching the computer or TV and then keeping your BG in shape all day?

Did you know that we need to exercise to keep from having a heart attack or other health problems? That goes for people who do not have Diabetes.

Another fact, how do you keep your circulation going? The blood goes down and then has to fight gravity to go back up. The only way to do that is to exercise.

The short walks are still good. My short after lunch walk (About 10 minutes) has more of a positive effect on my BG than my high intensity workouts. When I take it nice and easy, I get a nice BG number, when I kill myself my numbers are soaring.

Hi Rustynail, I was told when I was first diagnosed with Diabetes to take about a 15 minute walk after each meal. That is easy to do and gets your digestion going.
