Let's face it. If you liked working out, you wouldn't be looking at ways to "fit in" fitness into your busy schedule.
I LOVE to workout- like it's my favorite. I even use working out to procrastinate. Whenever I have to sit down at the computer to tackle something techie thing like editing video (yuck!) or updating my website (yuckier) I always somehow manage to decide that I MUST take a walk to get my Vitamin D right this second!
But there is a method to my madness. When I use a Fitbreak to procrastinate it actually helps me get back to work. Plus I end up being more productive because I'm more focused. It takes half the time to get my tasks done then if I just sat there staring at that stupid blinking cursor.
My method of procrastination is actually very helpful. I quick walk after lunch clears my head and helps me get re-energized for an afternoon of sitting at my desk. Friday afternoon I had to finish up some assignments and take a few quizzes and I could not focus (squirrel!). Guess what I did? Fitbreaks! I took a dose of my own medicine and did 10 minute Strength Fitbreaks after every assignment. I finished my homework AND got a full workout in! BAM!
That's what Fitbreaks are all about. Fitting in fitness into your workday.
Here's what I'm asking...give my method of procrastination a shot this week. Pick one day this week when you have to be at that desk for a while and plan out those fitbreaks. I'll make it easy for you! I just recorded 2 new Kitchen Fitbreaks- a Strength Fitbreak using Water Bottles and a Cardio and Core Tabata Fitbreak. No equipment necessary ! Do the Cradio and Core one at 11 am and the Strength one at 3 pm- or visa versa...or whenever it works for you! I do really well when I have a plan, so that's why I'm suggesting to put it into your calendar.
These Fitbreaks are perfect if you're working at home, don't have a ton of room, or even if you're living the remote-work van life (super jealous- life goals!).
Ok my friends- let's do this! Quit waiting to workout until you have time, or can go to the gym, or you find the perfect t-shirt- remember- you don't even need to put shoes on to do a fitbreak! Or- let's be honest- you don't even need to get our of your PJ's!
Happy Fitbreaking from Sue at EZ Fit in10!
