back on the workout wagon

I haven't had time to get in a proper workout for the past 3 days or so, and I'm feeling incredibly lazy! I know that this will happen on occasion (sometimes it is possible to actually have a social life during the week... madness I know) so I'm trying to think of ways to get little workouts in here and there. Yesterday after work I went straight out for drinks with my co-workers, but when I got to my sister's house later that evening I managed to squeeze in a mini Wiggles dance party workout session with my 2 year old nephew - and I'm sure that counts! I was wearing heels too, lol. I am 100% dedicated to this goal, and having something of an obsessive/addictive personality helps me in the way that I will get things done if I want them to be done. So I've gone from somebody who very rarely got off of her butt and into exercise gear, to being someone who feels lazy if I haven't been for my daily run! I'm looking forward to this afternoon's run, but anticipating it being rather hard, as I'm 3 days out of practice... But in the meantime, I'm going to go watch some more Christmas movies!

How often to you workout? Do you plan your life around your workouts, or try to fit your workout in wherever you can?

Hi Jess,

I try to workout 6/7 days a week but when life gets busy there is always ways to fit in a bit more exercise as you discovered.

I do calf raises when I do the dishes and it has made a huge difference to my calves. Probably cos I do so many dishes...lol

Good luck,
Jo

I am building my exercise up slowly by walking 4 times a week.

It was routine for me 3 days a week to walk and pick up the kids but now school has finished, I will still have to be disciplined enough to walk on the same days.

So for me, it's an exercise routine I work everything else around. I still don't enjoy exercise (I am getting better) so if I don't have set times I would makes excuses not to do it.

Well done on finishing your christmas shopping. It's going to be bedlam at the shops next week.

I am so terrible, I never plan to exercise, and if it happens I am so proud! But it's not a major part of my weight loss yet. 30kg down, I think I'll hit a plateau soon and I'll have to start getting serious.
