Great Ways to Work in Fitness
Keeping fit is a goal for most women, but with kids, work, chores and a ton of other responsibilities, few of us have time to focus on getting (or staying) trim and healthy.
A busy, on the go lifestyle sounds like it would be a good way to stay fit; the problem is that many women add a lot of unhealthy habits into their hectic schedule and don't make the most of their exercise opportunities.
While hitting the gym after work sounds like a great plan, it's not always a viable option, especially if you have a family waiting for you at home.
Our day-to-day lives provide plenty of opportunities for working in fitness. Even if your schedule allows you a very limited amount of time to work out, you can sneak in fitness at other times during the day and use a variety of tactics to maximize the effects of your efforts.
Scheduling It Right
If you do any kind of workout program at home, you need to be able to fit it into your day. You may have to make a few sacrifices in order to make it happen, but looking and feeling great is well worth it. Remember when shopping around for workout DVD's that some routines require much more time than others. Try to seek out programs that allow for short, effective workouts if this better suits your needs.
Get up early. You don't have to be up with the birds, but try to set your alarm to allow for enough time for a quick workout before you get flooded with the responsibilities of the day. Early workouts can also make you feel invigorated and ready to take on the day's challenges. You'll also feel a sense of accomplishment at having gotten your workout in so early.
