I woke up yesterday feeling like
LOUNGING ALL DAY...
the little angel on my shoulder, however, kept reminding me of my summer promise to myself:
A few episodes of Gilmore Girls later,
I decided that exercise didn't have to be gritty and all-out.
So I looked at the angel on my shoulder and said,
"Let's make a deal.
I'll exercise like you said I should,
but it will be
where I want
how I want."
Surprisingly enough, the angel agreed.
To the beach we went,
and instead of running the whole length and back,
I mixed it up a bit.
(My favorite part about running on the beach is that I get to do it barefoot! Total motivator for me)
If you're ever having an exercise funk day,
Walk 1 min.
Run 1 min.
Walk 2 min.
Run 2 min.
Walk 3 min.
Run 3 min.
Walk 4 min. *
Run 4 min.
Walk 5 min.
Run 5 min.
BAM! 30 min. of cardio exercise!
I then pivot turned and did the entire routine in reverse,
starting with 5 min. run
and ending with 1 min. walk.
*If you don't want to do the entire routine in reverse,
pivot turn at this point, or stroll back after the 5 min run (especially if you're at the beach :)*
Give it a try!
Or make something else up!
exercise doesn't have to be gritty and grueling
to get the job done.
