On Saturdays I made a goal to write about Food and/or Exercise, but now I’m stumped. I have nothing exciting to report in the world of healthy food habits and frankly I’ve been so focused on writing that I haven’t been doing much regular exercise lately. Even my weekly hikes took a back burner the last two weekends (I plan on remedying that this weekend).
So, this made me think…how does one find a perfect balance between getting adequate fitness/exercise in with everything else? It’s a constant struggle for me.
My most successfully attempts in the past have been exercising at lunch…running, walking, rollerblading. But, lately I’ve reserved my lunches for writing which is also a top priority for me.
I frequently think I’ll wake up early and get it done first thing in the morning. Then morning rolls around and I can’t quite get my feet on the ground until the clock hits the magic hour of “oh my gosh if I don’t get up now I won’t make it to work on time”.
And, at night I’m just plain exhausted. I know part of that is self-induced. If I was exercising more regularly, then I’d have more energy.
As I write this, I’m realizing I have plenty of excuses and no action. I should probably heed some of the advice I so freely gave my best friend when she was throwing out excuse after excuse.
I certainly know there are a lot of people busier than I am, so I’m curious how they fit regular fitness/exercise into their lives.
What do you do to get fitness/exercise into your daily schedule?
