Multitasking involving fitness

Something from which we can all benefit!

Some examples of what I’ve implemented that others may like as a template:

When sitting, Lifting legs straight out and holding for 1-5 mins at work meetings

Stretching during longer conversions

Holding weights or doing a muscular fitting set when waiting a minute or 2 for some computer task to finish

Mind churn of “I gotta eat something”

Sometimes our heads can run away in us like this. A good way to do a reality check is:

Track your calories against your expenditure.

Lots of online resources can help with this. Yesterday I had 3500, which is a lil too much for me, so I’m having a very light breakfast. Not that it works for everyone, just Ann idea to correct the imbalance of intake.

Also, a good stretch, yoga, chores, mixture of physical fun n games may help distract your mind

When ‘all things in moderation’ get away on you.. let it create motivation

The world is filled with advocates of “all things in moderation”, and at times, rightly so – given the fact we all have different desires in life and don’t want to always go on a rigid direct path to success.  Being stern like that can actually strip out a lot of fun out of life too – yet at the same time, if you find yourself enjoying being rigid and 100% on course, continue to do that too.  It’s all about what fits best for you at this time in your life.  And that can change over time as well.  It’s ok 🙂

Enjoy your life and the people in it.

 Great to have adventures in life! 

​Sometimes we need to change it up a bit. My own experience follows. Feel free to comment about yours too 🙂

This year for fitness events I signed up to an out of town trail run. I also went The week before to familiarize myself with the course too.

The 10k Trail run with Rocky ground, lil mud, and roots was an awesome experience. Heard water nearby at times too.  Excellent stuff with cheers from staff and back and forth with other runners. It was at High Cliff state park in eastern WI 

Beating cravings

One strategy I’ve been using lately is remembering what fun events are in the future, maybe the same day, or a week out.. This is in order to not have as much sweet or junk foods and delaying my giving in to cravings.  It’s helped me out and I hope It helps you too.
