Now that we have dinner planned tonight let's talk about why we do all this health and fitness stuff...

I read a quote that I loved this week and wanted to share.

Exercising on a regular basis has such a dramatic effect on other cardiac risk factors like blood pressure, obesity, and cholesterol that its protective benefits during your 23 nonexercising hours each day totally swamp any risks during exercise itself. -Alex Hutchinson

You have to remember this as you go about your crazy life. I know that so many of us wake up with the sun, or even before, and feel like the day never stops from there. I hear far too often that "I just don't have time...." Today's fit tips are ways to fit in the time your body, and mind, need each day.

1) First and foremost, get it done in the morning. Get it done before you get too busy answering emails, chasing kids around, cooking dinner, and anything else that has that uncanny ability to sneak in.

2) Work out efficiently. Don't feel like you have to have a ton of time, sneak in 20 minutes of intervals on those busy days.

3) Cater to your likes. It is much easier to find time to do something that you like doing versus something that you hate doing. That doesn't mean you shouldn't try new things. But it does mean if you hate running don't try to force yourself to run everyday.

4) Make a competition out of it. Competitions, for me that means races, can be highly motivating. 

5) Make a schedule and stick to it. Your workout is important, don't skip it. Instead schedule it, plan it, and fit in other things around it.

Remember, this isn't just about fitting into those skinny jeans. Working out is one of those things that your body needs in order to thrive.

Happy Fit Friday :) 
Much Love and Peace~ Nichole and Ruthie
