Strapped for Time?

Wed, 24 May 2006 by Denise Austin

Having trouble squeezing in your workout? Try these tips from other busy Fit Forever! members:

  • Set your alarm to go off a half-hour earlier than everyone else's, and get your workout out of the way first thing!
  • If a mad morning rush leaves you with no time, try getting everything ready the night before (including lunches packed and clothing set out).
  • Don't be afraid to delegate some household tasks to other family members and make time for exercise! You shouldn't try to do everything all by yourself.
  • Cut down on kitchen time by making double recipes and freezing half for a quick heat-and-eat meal another day!
  • Take your kids to a school or park and walk laps while they play or go on a bike ride together.
  • If you can't fit in one 30-minute walk, break it into three 10-minute jaunts throughout your day.
  • Tone up with fidgetsizes! Do bottom squeezes in the elevator, leg lifts at your desk, leg squats while blow-drying your hair, tummy tucks while watching the news, etc. Do what you can, when you can.
  • Think small! Even if it isn't a full workout, five or ten minutes of movement is better than nothing!
