Gina’s Fit Tip – Exercise
Finding time to exercise can be difficult for many. Even at work, many people are sedentary. In order to include some exercise in your schedule, you may need to develop a more efficient exercise program.
First, think to yourself that exercise is a necessity for reaching your weight goals and maintaining them. Then create reasonable expectations for yourself. Maybe you want to jog 5 times a week, but 2 or 3 days is more practical for your busy schedule. An achievable goal will help make you feel successful and motivate you to stick to it. You may also want to take exercise classes. However, this may not be the most efficient workout for a busy schedule, since most classes are an hour long (not including the commute). Instead, try quicker forms of exercise such as jogging, walking, running, or cycling. You can schedule classes on your days off.
Other ways to fit exercise into your schedule include home workouts. You can rent exercise videos, lift hand weights, or ride an exercise bike. Try to include exercise as one of your daily objectives. Setting exercise as a priority and giving it a time slot will help you stay fit.
Have a Healthy Day!
