I have got lots and lots of questions on how I workout or stay fit with such a busy schedule! To be honest I have kind of pushed off this post because I don't want to be that annoying person that tells everyone every time I work out or am doing a diet or cleanse. I am sure you all know what type of person I am talking about! :) ha ha and I also feel like a hypocrite because I don't feel like I eat THAT healthy! This week after each of my posts I will give you little tips and tricks to what I do to stay fit with such a busy schedule. I will be honest, it isn't easy.. At all! Sometime the last thing I want to do after working all day is go workout. I would rather go home and lay around and the last thing I want to do is get up at 5 to go work out when I have to spend 8 hours of the day thinking and concentrating at work!
I was raised in a family where my parents both are into working out. My dad is a football coach and loves working out and my mom goes to two gym classes a day (I don't know how she does it). Also, when I was growing up at home we didn't ever have lots of treats and soda in my house. Deprived? Maybe.. but I see little kids now a days that are over weight and I thank the heavens above that my parents were pretty healthy. Yes we had treats and I love treats but I am glad we were very limited and I will do the same with my kids!
For today let me give you a little idea of what I do most days:
*I wake up and get to work between 8am - 9am
*I LOVE hot drinks. One of my favorite hot drink that I have discovered is Sugar Free Apple Cider. It is so yummy and it only has 15 calories.
*One of my favorite things to eat of lunch is the Oat Revolution oatmeal. It is so good and only has 90 calories and it fills me up!
*I SNACK ALL DAY! This is one thing I am trying to cut out, I work at a computer all day and it is so easy just to snack on junk all day and I do it a lot! BAD!!!!
* When I get off work around 5:30 I head to the gym and do a gym class. It is an hour long and it is extremely hard. For you ladies with kids I would highly recommend taking an hour out of your day (when your kids are napping or most gyms offer a daycare and I think it is only like $2 a kid) and do a good workout!
*Sometimes I have to go to my other job and work for a couple hours or work on custom blogs. Which makes it so I can't get to the gym until around 8pm or 9pm.
*After the gym we go home eat dinner and lounge!
I hope this helps a little! I will have more tips to come. :)
