Surya Namaskar

When I am in a bit of a hurry, and don't have time for a workout, what I end up doing are 12 suryanamskars- only takes 10 minutes at the maximum but is a complete workout. Wikipedia has decent information (including the various asanas: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surya_Namaskar)

It is a complete exercise as you all must know(combines resistance, aerobic, yoga, and prayers to boot!) but what I want to emphasize is that only takes that long and it is a no-excuse exercise on the days when you don't have time for a regular workout.

Small joy to feel good and virtuous on a tough day:)

That's a real eye opener or rather a mind opener which I should hve had before.Its very easy to become lazy and give up one's exercise regime after achieving the target..!!:)or so I thought..But This should put me back on track..thanx Sid for reminding me to gt started.
