It is way more important that you make exercise a permanent part of your life than it is to treat it as a new years resolution or a spare of the moment decision.
That type of mindset will cause you to forget about it after only a few short months. Exercising is best approached as a lifestyle change and should be treated accordingly.
Finding ways to incorporate it in your life might seem daunting either because of time constraints or lack of desire to work out, which is why I say try the “baby step” approach!
Opt to walk to the store instead of drive! Some of us have stores that are only a few blocks away. Imagine the joy you would bring your heart (and thighs I might add) if you walked there instead of drive! Try to incorporate this as much as possible.
If you have a small infant use them as a dumb bell. YES I SAID IT…. Strap that baby to your body using your baby harness and do your house chores! The baby will actually find this to be fun! AND you will become more fit! *We will discuss this more in detail in the homestead category.
Find exercises that fit your personality type! No one says you have to be a fitness guru. Just start off doing what you think you will like and take it from there. Some people enjoy yoga, others weight lifting and other cardio. Remember… baby steps!
This approach will help you to create an lifestyle change instead of a fly by night fitness frenzy that will only end in short memories of bad workouts!
