The only way I can get exercise into the day is to do it in the AM before work. I'm too exhausted after work! I do Not sleep well so....I am now going to bed 1 hour earlier! I'm getting ahead start sleeping before my snoring husband. But I can now exercise and feeling BETTER!
I never considered myself a morning person, but I've trained myself to get up earlier and get my workout in before I go to work. That means I have to get up at 4:30 am to get in my strength training and half of my cardio before work...that's early but it gets my day off to such a great start!
i found out it does not matter how old you are you can play any sport .the biggest challenge is going there. once you are there you feel locked in because you know you have people there needing you!!!
I have found myself holding in my stomach while I drive to work. I feel like I can use the time to strengthen my core stomach muscles and posture. I have to be there for 30 minutes...why not use the time for something productive?
I often find myself using the excuse that I'm "too tired" to workout. I've come to realize that if I do it anyway, within the first few minutes of my workout I've got more energy that sticks around and typically I end up in a better mood throughout the day
I have stopped looking for parking places that are near the door of a store and started making use of the further ones. This way I get in some exercise walking to and from the store. This exercise is of course in addition to and not in place of regular exercises.
