Making it easy

So, the last few weeks I have barely exercised. Combination of factors but today I had a light bulb moment. Instead of standing watching my youngest at football training why don't I use that time to squeeze in some exercise? So I did. I downloaded the first C25k podcast and I did it. It was cold, pouring with rain and I barely felt like I was moving as I was sooooo slow! But I completed that first run (walk?!), still had time to watch my son play and have a chat with the other parents. It felt great and hopefully the start of making it easy to exercise so that it fits in with everything else rather than a chore that needs crow barring into my life (time always seems to be the biggest obstacle). Have a good weekend everyone.

  • Good thinking Newbiewl :)

    Another tip, is to do squats, lunges, wall presses, etc, while waiting for the kettle to boil, or while the adverts are on. Sit on an exercise bike while watching your favourite soaps, run up and down the stairs waiting for the microwave to ping. You'd be amazed at what can be squeezed into a full day :)

    Keep up the great work! :)

  • Great tips More less. Will definitely be trying those!
