Busy, Busy, Busy…
I hope everyone thoroughly enjoyed their Thanksgiving weekend! Now life gets busy with shopping for the perfect gifts, preparing for more family get-togethers and festive parties. How do we fit everything in without kicking exercise off the “To Do” list. Hopefully you choose to maintain the same routine you had before Thanksgiving, but, if there are days where you just can’t fit it all in OR you don’t currently exercise and would like to start, here’s a simple solution.
I know some of you already do this from time to time, so use this as a friendly reminder and kudos to you! When you’re watching TV… do push-ups, planks or crunches during every commercial. If you’re watching a movie or reading a book, do the exercises every 20min for 3min. Here are two examples of what your routine could look like:
Just starting out? Cycle through the following:
1. 5 Push-ups
2. 00:30 plank
3. 10 crunches
Workout regularly, just couldn’t fit it in today? Cycle through the following:
1. 20 Push-ups
2. 01:00 plank
3. 20 crunches
Think about it. If you do 5 push-ups for every commercial cycle (and there are at least 4) you’ll be up to a minimum of 20 push-ups daily!! How cool!? You can stay on track with your workouts and do all the fun stuff this holiday season!! Woohoo!!
Have a great day 🙂
