Make it fun and Make a plan

Yesterday was an incredibly beautiful day. My friends and I decided to go for a leisurely bike ride. It started out with like five of us heading out for a quick stroll, and turned into quite the posse. We rode all over Provo which was so much fun. We were on our bikes for a couple of hours, and it didn't even feel like exercise because it was such a good time.
Just another reminder that being active, and living an active lifestyle doesn't have to be painful and boring. Find things that you enjoy, and make your exercise fun! You will be far more likely to stay active if it doesn't feel so arduous and hard all the time.

With today being Monday, I always try to think ahead as to what my workouts are going to look for for the week, so I can be sure to fit them in. My plan looks somewhat like this:

Monday: 60 mins of intervals on the elliptical
Tuesday: Circuit/Weights workout
Wednesday: 10 mile run, Barre Bootcamp Class
Thursday: circuit/weights workout (light)
Friday: 20 mile run
Saturday: Yoga, light weights workout

My challenge for you is to make a plan for your week as far as your exercise is concerned. If you know what you need to plan around, you will be a lot less likely to make it to the end of the day suddenly realizing you never got your workout in. Just like I always say...PREPARATION! Preparation really is the key to success.


What is your favorite way to get leisure exercise in? Do you know what your workouts look like for the week?

I love that you don't run every day even when training for a marathon. I used to feel like a failure if I didn't run 4-5 times each week (especially when training) until I developed a metatarsal stress fracture that took almost 9 months to heal. Now I only run 2 days each week and supplement with circuit training, yoga, weights, elliptical & cycling. I feel better now than when I was a slave to running. Keep it up! :)

My favorite way to get leisure exercise in is walking to work. The morning walk in is great, it helps me get ready for the day. The walk home helps me relieve the stress of the workday.
