This is a great article... it defines me all the way through...
I literally had no time to exercise, and squeezed it in by starting with 10 minutes of walking which eventually pushed up to 15 minutes and did this a few times a day. I HAD TO! I had become such a couch potato... ugh! Hate how I look, how I feel...
So now, I am no longer employed full time, and I have 20 hours a week that are mine to do with as I please. How cool is that. I have a close friend who is like a daughter to me, and she is dragging me to the gym with her. She is getting married in a month and I am singing at her wedding, but we have been there for each other for a couple years now... met through church and music ministry. She is my own daughters age, a year younger, and we get along so well... love her to pieces. So glad she is my friend!
So, I digress here... the article. It has great tips and ways to work around the exercise blahs... and putting off exercise until the end of the day is a big mistake, I did that, and it will never happen since you are already exhausted from the days work.
I always worked out first thing in the morning and felt better because of it, so I am resetting my own mindset to refocus on my goals in a different way.
Earlier to bed... rising earlier to get in the workout. I can do at home. I have a treadmill, I have pilates "thing", a kettlebell and I have exercise bands, NO EXCUSES!
