Just wasted time?
Thursday, October 04, 2012
I'm thinking today about how to fit in workouts as well as all my other chores. As a law student, home maker, and law clerk I have a very busy life and some days at the end of the day you just want to come home and veg out.
What counts as extra activity? Is parking farther away really that helpful? Taking the stairs a few extra times when bringing up the groceries? Cleaning house? Kneading bread?
Running after work/school can seem like a challenge because of time issues, and because you are tiered or want to spend time with family. Just setting aside that 30 minutes shouldn't be such an issue, right? Why does it feel like I'm being asked to spend 10 hours when I know it is so much shorter. Am I wasting time by relaxing? Maybe...
My goal this next week will be fitting in that work out even when I'm exhausted, at least doing 10-20 minutes of cardio should help, right? It definitely can't hurt!
