Fitness while Cooking? Oh, yeah!

Saturday, February 09, 2013

So last night I decided I had a lot of wasted time while cooking dinner. It was a process of stir, wait, stir, wait...which lead to BORING! So I formulated a little plan to kick the boredom, keep my food from scorching and work on my fitness minutes...

The Lunge and Stir Method!

I did sets of lunges, wall push ups, modified tricep dips and some stretching in between the monotonous stirring of my veggies and taters. The results?

Nothing scorched and my buns are feeling those lunges today. AWESOME!

Making excuses about being limited on time has been one of my downfalls in the past. This time I'm working toward being more creative with my workouts so I can fit them into my daily life. Those few minutes really made a difference in the way I felt about myself last night and the way my gluts and hams are feeling today.

Its one little victory I'm taking for myself and I plan on using as often as I can. Those little steps lead to big places as long as you keep taking them.

  That's great!

I use my "wasted" time to do any combination of: pack kids' lunches, wash dishes, prep fresh veggies. Between those three tasks and separating fighting kids and helping with homework and wiping up spills I almost never have downtime while cooking...

    Oh, excellent! I'll have to share this with my daughter who does most of the cooking.

When I was working in the computer lab, I would break up my sitting with seated workouts from the Spark video collection. There's always SOME small thing we can do! Thanks for sharing! Blessings on your way to a healthy lifestyle.
