|We hiked up Diamond Head Crater. |
Great workout, even better views!
Since taking extending time off from exercising isn't an option, I just get creative.
My mom flew in two weeks ago on a Monday afternoon. I made sure to get a run & weight session in on Sunday. Monday morning I went for a bike ride. That's two training sessions geared for my triathlon in May! We visited the beach later in the week - I went for a quick swim. Boom! All three taken care of for the week. The remainder of the week we hiked all around the island burning calories & enjoying our time together. At night I did yoga and/or weights to ease muscle tension from the day.
Now if she weren't visiting I would do more, that's true. BUT there's more to life than exercise...and there's no reason I can't do a little workout mixed in with enjoying family.
Next time you have a tough schedule, instead of putting exercise on the side lines, try fitting in a quick workout or maybe squeezing in some exercise time with your family members. It's a great memory maker. -- Written by Emily Collins, Owner & trainer
