Back to business!
Now, the kids are back at school...I'm kinda sad. I truly love hanging with my kids. They keep me young. They keep me laughing. They don't let me take myself too seriously. Dah, really, what sane 39 yr old jumps off cliffs? But, dang, what a rush;).
So, now my crazy little buddies are at school and I gotta get on a bathroom cleaning schedule...poo;(
Now is your time to get on a regular fitness routine.
It wont happen unless you PLAN!
During vacation I was lucky to be with girlfriends who loved (well mostly) rock climbing, jumping skiing, tubing, surfing, and joining me on early morning runs through sage brush while I spat out orders to do push ups, dips, jump squats & planks in the dirt.
I was blessed to have that happen. Realistically if it's not on your schedule, it usually doesn't happen. I live by my calender. If I don't check it daily, I can miss important stuff. HOLY crap, i missed my massage appointment;(
So, If you are maintaining you weight: give yourself a leisurely 2-3 days of exercise. BUT if you want & need to get firmer, leaner, and tighter: then 4-5 days of 20+ min of intense moving, lifting, & sweating is what your body needs.
WOW, yes! You don't have to be in the gym for 2 hrs a day or just running miles a day. You need to mix it up. HIIT or high intensity interval training is a basic way to get started.
Of course my H2 is a great workout too.
What do you do to get moving? Whats your favorite exercise?
