I’ve mentioned before that I don’t always feel like exercising. Most of the time I’m game as hell but there are occasions that I’m not in the mood or just don’t have the time. So I make time and get in the mood.
Even if all I can spare are 15 or 20 minutes. It’s something. And something is always better than nothing.
Last night was a busy night and I didn’t have a ton of time but I fit in 15 minutes on the elliptical, 190 squats (from the 30 Day Squat Challenge) and 15 minutes of (semi-intense) yoga (wait, is yoga supposed to be intense?). By the end of it all I’d fit in more than a half hour workout. And I felt good.
So, if you’re running low on time (or not in the mood) try to fit in a 20 minute mini-workout: a walk or run or bike or hike, yoga, weights, elliptical or stationary bike. As long as it’s something.
