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!

    Starting is the hardest part. I always enjoy my workouts once I start them. I mostly just walk so it takes a couple of hours to do my workout. This makes it difficult because you have to find the time. But walking 30 miles a week helped me lose 100 pounds. emoticon

    Ugh getting yourself to workout when your'e exhausted and just want to sleep is the worst, I tend to convince myself that at that point sleep is most important. But you're right, even doing a little cardio should help, and I find once I start a workout I almost ALWAYs want to finish it.
