Finding Time for Exercise
Friday, February 18, 2011
I work out of town a lot because I work in the oilfield. Currently I've temporarily moved into the office while taking an online engineering class. Between full time hours in the office and getting my school work done I can't seem to find the time or energy to get to the gym. Normally when I'm in town I'm at the gym several times a week. My gym offers Les Mills classes and I'm addicted to them, I try and do 4-5 a week sometimes doing 2 one hour classes back to back. I don't want to let this get in the way of my weightloss journey so I've decided to start working out over my lunch our at the small gym in my office. I've always been leary about working out at lunchtime, because there is no time to shower if I want to work out and actually get a bite to eat. But I've decided screw it if its the only time I can do it then it's gotta be. It's nothing a little freshening up, deoderant, makeup and some perfume won't hide :-)
I've decided to do the C25K training on the treadmille since each podcast is about 30 minutes. I will do that on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. Tomorrow is day 3 of week 1. I have printed off some of the strength training workouts off the fitness section and plan on doing 30 minutes of weights with 5 minutes of abs on tuesdays and thursdays starting next week.
I'm still trying to get my head around a 30 minute workout. I'm used to being at the gym for 1-2+ hours. I know 30 minutes is better than nothing, but I've got it in my head that it's probably not goingn to be enough. I'll still try and fit in the odd class even if its only 1 or 2 a week. I hope its enough excersice to see the numbers continuing to drop on the scale!
