Lori-Fitting in Exercise
It seems a bit odd to be talking about how I am fitting in exercise when I haven’t actually exercised in the past week. However, that is because I was sick all week and I’m just starting to get my energy back. But I am going to talk about what I try to do on a regular basis.
I have been trying to exercise 3 to 4 days each week. My routine consists mostly of running. I am up to about 3 miles now and I try to run three days each week. I am very fortunate that I recently moved into a new apartment in an area of town where I am able to step out my front door and go for a run around the neighborhood. It makes it so much easier to fit in a run because I don’t have to spend any time getting to the park or a place that I can run. It is probably one of my favorite things about my new apartment. I have also been trying to take at least one class at the gym each week. By taking a class I get in some “cross-training” and work different muscles than I do while I am running. I also find the classes fun and challenging.
I have also started keeping a set of hand weights on my coffee table. This way they are staring at me while I am watching tv and I try to make sure that I do a few sets of exercises during the commercial breaks.
If you guys have any suggestions for fitting in exercise, please let us know! We always look forward to feedback.
Stay fit!! Hopefully you will see me in video form next time!
