Road Trip

If I can, I wear exercise-friendly clothes for a road trip. When I stop at a rest stop I often take ten minutes for a fitness break: jogging, doing calisthenics, even swinging a kettlebell I've thrown in the trunk, or a quick kickboxing routine. Tabatas are great, and I keep a HIIT program on my phone to help me keep time. Better than a cup of coffee for keeping alert and from getting stiff. I never mind the looks I get--I figure I'm inspiring people!

Listen to fitness nutrition podcasts while in the car.

It'll keep you from going through the drive through or picking up a candy bar!

DRIVING YOUR ABS

While driving, you can put a little extra downward pressure on the wheel while tightening your abs and exhaling while flexing your stomach. Hold repetitions for 5-7 seconds each, in sets of 12-15. If you have a 15-20 minute commute or longer, you will have quite an abdominal workout. emoticon

On the Road a Lot?

I'm on the road a lot, like 8 hours a day. How about you? Do you know how much money disappears into convenience stores from your wallet? Save hundreds of dollars and fend off thousands of calories each month by simply bringing a water bottle along in your truck. I can't even describe how well this has stopped my drive-induced weight gain. Give it a try! It's free and you can go back to throwing away money and drinking 600 calories a cup any time you want.

Cancel That Road Rage!

Recently I opted to say a short prayer for drivers whenever they do something to annoy me. It instantly relaxes me and helps me to see them in a positive way.

Small Actions over time = big results

Just like with weight loss, you need not tackle all your organizational issues at once. Try 15 minutes a day, and you'll find yourself with 105 minutes (1 hr, 45 mins!) per week of organizational work.
