My weekend workouts need some motivation!!

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

I really have no excuse for not exercising; all I need is to make the time to do it. During the week, I normally have no problem getting my workout in. I always workout as soon as I get home from work. However, on the weekend I just cannot get motivated to do it. My idea of working out on the weekend is walking the dog.

I am making this list to remind myself of the endless options that I have to get in a workout on the weekends!

1) Run on the treadmill (doesn't always have to be 5k)
2) Walk on the treadmill (Try doing it on an incline)
3) Go for a walk with my best friend (she needs to get out of the house)
4) Put in a workout video (even if its only 10 minute)
5) Get on my elliptical (dust first)
6) Do strength training... Arm, Butt, Abs, Legs
7) Go for a bike ride with hubby
8) Go for a hike with hubby and dog
9) Try Yoga
10) Do Zumba
11) Put on some music an dance like a fool

    :) You can do this. You just have to find something that is fun and doesn't seem like a chore. Hey, don't be so hard on yourself. As long as you are moving, that is what matters so walking the dog still counts. :)

    I know you will find something that fits for you!
    Good luck! :)

    I vote for channeling your inner Zumba Queen and dancing until you can't dance anymore. As a matter of fact- hit the music as soon as you start brushing your teeth. By the time you're ready to rinse, you will be ready to really boogie. The husband and pooch might try to cut in or at the very least you can be there entertainment for a spell.

    Good ideas! You're right we don't have to always make working out a big deal or plan it! It only takes a few minutes to drop and do a few pushups or do crunches or run up and down the stairs a few times!!! When you think of it that way there really is no excuse for no time!

    emoticon there is nothing wrong with getting your walking in with your doggie.
    It is great exercise for you and him.

    Play fetch with him for strength training - throwing different size balls balancing out the number of throws with each arm. You can get pretty creative working out with your doggie.

    Have fun!
