I'm so excited to introduce you to Alli from Girl Next Score!
Hello, Brea Getting Fit readers! My name is Alli and I run the blog Girl Next Score, a lifestyle blog that I share everything from fashion to working out on. As someone who does yoga, Pilates and TRX every day, I love to share my journey with all of you. As someone who you might be able to dub as the “laziest person ever”, when I find ways that I can motivate those of you who are like me, I do!
Staying fit and living a busy life often don’t go hand and hand. Being a student, a worker and even a friend make having a consistent fitness regimen near impossible. This post is for the working moms, students and whoever else just doesn’t have the time to hit the gym. I’m here to share with you some tips on how to make this happen.[fancy_box id=2]Need a quick [content_upgrade id=8691]15 Minute Workout[/content_upgrade]? Download yours now.[/fancy_box]
I’ll just be honest with you: I hate working out. Finding the motivation to do any sort of exercise after a long day of work is not an easy thing to do. I don’t do gyms. I have asthma and A.D.H.D. so doing any sort of workout on my own is difficult. I am a yoga, Pilates, workout class type of person and fitting those into the schedule that I have just doesn’t happen.
Browse the Internet
When I don’t have time to get to a class, I look to Pinterest to find some simple workouts. Websites like FitSugar are some of the best for easy, yet effective exercises that are for everyone. Following blogs like Blogilates are also great.
Blogilates has monthly workouts laid out for you. Their beginner’s workout guide lays out a month of workouts that specifically lay out which videos to watch every day. You can get a full body workout from the comfort of your own living room floor.
Start doing mini workouts whenever you can. Brushing your teeth? Do some squats. Lying on the couch watching Netflix all day long? Do some crunches and leg raises.[fancy_box id=2]Too lazy to work out? Nah. You just need a quick [content_upgrade id=8691]15 Minute Workout[/content_upgrade]! Download yours now.[/fancy_box]
The opportunities are endless. Fit in the little workouts whenever you possibly can! Type lazy workouts into Pinterest, and you’ll find a ton of different ways to incorporate mini exercises into your daily routine.
The World is Your Gym
The whole world might not be your gym, but it might as well be. If you don’t have a gym membership or any equipment to use, you can easily substitute them with household items. A simple kitchen chair can be your best friend.
You can check out this website for a simple how-to. If you don’t have any weights, a can of vegetables can be a simple substitute. The opportunities to workout at home are endless!
I hope these simple tips can help you find time in your busy schedule to exercise, because they sure have made a huge difference in my life!
