I work at a bank and sit most of the day. I drink water all day long and have to use the restroom probably 5 to 6 times a day. I do 15 squats each and every time I go. It helps break the monotony of the day and I can see and feel the difference in my legs!
No time to exercise? The average commercial is 2+ min long on TV. Instead of heading for the fridge, exercise. Do squats, pushups, wall pushups, jumping jacks etc
When I'm feeling sluggish and don't feel like getting a workout in, I tell myself I can squeeze in 15 minutes. Just a 15 minute walk. When I get on the treadmill, it often turns in to a 45 minute jog. The hardest step is the first.
..& get on the bike. Take kids from home to daycare by bike. When little on a chair on your bike when older let them bike along! From daycare to work 10-30 minutes! Take stairs when possible & ofcourse pick your kids up again! :) Exercise incorporated in your day! No kids? Still you can bike! :)
I've committed to just 10mins per day. It's completely doable and I don't feel overwhelmed with thoughts of squeezing even 30min into a busy day. However, once I start my 10min I usually keep going. Taking away the pressure of a big chunk of time makes it easier to keep the commitment.
