Fabulous has asked me to start with 8 min of low intensity exercise in the morning. This is something that I feel I can commit to. I have a 30 minute commute to work in the mornings so to wake up earlier to get in a longer workout is going to take some more drastic habit changes so this is what I'm starting out with. If I feel up to it after work I'll take my dog for a 20-30 min walk as well. I'm also on my feet all day at work.
I’m still doing the 10-minute routine in the morning, but I try and go swimming at least 3 times a day, where I spend between 45-90 minutes every session.
For my morning exercise I do a five minute stretch workout. I also then do an eight minute night Stretch in the… well the night aha. Buut I'm also a figure skater and an ice dancer so I tend to do 10ish minutes of cardio and 10ish minutes of muscle training and 10 minutes of something random in the evening which also helps me sleep. I use the 7m women app which has a load of great, different level workouts. I wish you all the best.
I only exercise for about seven or eight minutes per day. It doesn’t seem like a lot, but after three weeks or so I’m already feeling stronger, happier, and (if i’m honest) hotter 😉. I don’t think it’s always in everyone’s best interest to become a gym rat. That’s never worked for me. I think it’s just about getting moving and understanding that an active body is going to keep you feeling better, longer.
I excersise every second day for about 15-30 minutes, depending on what excersises I'm doing or how much time in the mornings I have.
- What are some healthy breakfast options?
- How do you keep motivated to practice a habit when there is someone who pokes fun at you?
- Any ideas for exercises that I can do in the morning in the bathroom before taking a shower?
- How do you make the exercise feel good, and not feel like a chore? Even if it’s just for 5 minutes in the morning.
- Does anyone have any suggestions for routines? Apps you use or how you make up your own?
- I see the app working for me. I am now recommending it to every person looking for a way to break a bad habit. What are some ways you’ve motivated your peers to build better habits with you?
- How do you not fall asleep when trying to meditate first thing in the morning?
- Where do you run into trouble when trying to keep an excercise habit up? How do you get through it?
- What do you do to halt cravings? Mine are mostly for bread and for sweets.
- I’d love to hear about other great workout programs people have tried that kept them motivated and felt and saw a noticeable difference.
