Fit Friday: It’s Never Too Late

walking

Well it’s Friday and I could not be happier! This week has presented itself with challenges that I never thought I would experience, but the good thing is it’s in the past. I am glad to be moving on. I call the title of this post Never Too Late because that is exactly how I felt today. I was approaching the end of my work day and one of my coworkers presented the idea taking a quick walk outside. I began to think of all the things I could have finished and being done before 5pm, but I put down my pen and went walking anyway. In that small time while walking, I was able to get back into a “fitness” state of mind. During our walk we stopped along the way and I led my coworkers in doing 3 sets of 30 quick step ups. It was great to be outside in this great weather and recharge my battery. You have to give energy to get energy, and that is exactly what I did. I went back to my desk feeling accomplished and I finished the day still completing everything I wanted to do. So to you I say it’s never too late. Get up and move! You will feel a lot better after.

Happy Fit Friday Everyone!

Live. Love. Well & Fit.

Fit Friday: Rain And A Little Cardio

Happy Friday Everyone! Well California finally got its rain, and boy is it coming down. That is ok though. I still went and got my workout in. I love the Fridays that I am off. I get time to myself just to sit and relax. It is a great time to watch a movie, read, or work on my business. I’m kind of glad it rained today. How do you spend your rainy days, and what do you do in regards to exercise when you are more than likely will stay inside?

Live. Love. Well & Fit.

Fit Friday: At Your Desk

Happy FIt Friday Everyone! We always seem to have the excuse of “not enough time” to exercise. Well I’m here to tell you that you can’t use that excuse anymore. You can workout while sitting right at your work station. Here are 3 exercises to try:

  1. Sit up with you back straight and the ball of your feet on the ground. Then go into a football quick run in your chair. Move your feet up and down as fast as you can for 30 seconds then relax. Repeat for three sets. Now that’s “sit down” cardio!
  2. Put you arms above your head and pump one arm in the air vertically (up and down) in a fast pace. Do 20 raises on each arm then relax. Repeat for three sets. Work those shoulders!
  3. Sit up with you back straight and contract you ab muscles. Move you abdomen side to side, making sure to focus on only moving you mid section. Hey abs in chair!

So no more excuses! Get to it! I hope this helps you to stay fit this Fit Friday!

Love. Live. Well & Fit.

Today was a roller coaster for me. At first it started off very peaceful and towards the end I started to become stressed. You know when you have an agenda for the day, but it doesn’t quite go as planned? Well that was me today. Through all of it, I still found time to exercise. I popped in my 10 Minute Solution: Hip Hop Cardio DVD and go my sweat on. The DVD consist of 5 workout segments that are each 10 minutes long. I enjoy doing all of them, but I only did three today.

It is no mystery that exercise is a way to release stress. Whether you schedule it at the beginning or the end of your day, it will always make you feel better. I know this is kind of a late post, but if you haven’t worked out today, then there is no better time than the present. You can do it. I am here on the side lines cheering for you! Get up and get fit on this “Fit Friday”!

Happy Friday Everyone!

Fit Friday: Part Two

Now that we are at the end of the day. I want to congratulate you for all the physical activity you did today! How many points did you tally up, and what did these activities consist of? My grand total was 7 physical activity points. I walked around my office 3 times. Then I did some aerobic exercises while waiting at the printer. I dance while riding home in the car. Followed by going up my stairs with my daughter, and I cooked some of my delicious spaghetti. I hope you had as much fun as I did counting our physical activity! Happy Fit Friday!
