I’m tired. I don’t have time. Does this sound like you when it comes to exercising?  If so here are some tips on how to fit exercise in without having to exercise for 30-60 minutes at a time.

  • Get outside and play with your kids: It may not be strenuous exercise but any movement to get your blood flowing is a plus!  Hide and go seek, tag, hop scotch and skipping are just a few ideas of some fun games you can play.
  • Gardening: If you’re out long enough trust me, you’ll be sore….in a good way.
  • Walking: A nice walk with the family is a great way to get your daily dose of Vitamin D and tone the legs.  Just as long as the walk isn’t to get ice cream.
  • Tabata workout: You know I had to throw this in there with the launch of my DVD but it’s true.  A 4 minute tabata workout 3 times a week will allow you to see results.  It increases the amount of oxygen you intake to use at a muscular level which in turn burns your food quicker.
  • Do 1 exercise in between commercials: Instead of sitting through the commercials stand up and do some squats.  You’ll be way more productive.  During the next commercial change it up and complete a different exercise like pushups.  You will see a difference with your strength after doing this for a couple of weeks.
  • Dance like nobody’s watching: Dancing is a great way to get some movement into your day.  I guarantee we all shake what our momma gave us when a song we like comes on. Dancing puts you in a good mood so dance your heart out and let your happiness radiate to those around you.tumblr_mtudqaaO1I1r4hp9to1_500
