Fun Ways to Squeeze In A Work Out

Thanks to everyone for the anniversary wishes! I can’t believe how fast the time has flown by! Rather than exchange gifts, we decided this year to treat ourselves to a nice long dinner. It may sound silly, but getting dressed up and taking the time to go out to a nice restaurant during the hectic work week is a rare treat, and it truly felt like a special night out. We chose the Chart House in Annapolis. Its been on my list of places to check out for awhile now, especially since it sits literally on the water. The view was spectacular and the company even better!

In thinking about how crazy the week can get, whether you are working in an office or running after little ones, I was wondering what you all do to stay fit?  I’ve really struggled over the past year to make it to the gym as often as I used to.  I try and make my favorite yoga class, but it often involves me coming in late and tripping over matts on my way to the back row.  Not exactly a zen moment.  Some nights I sweet talk Floyd into going on a walk with me, exercise that lets us share our day while stretching our legs.   However most nights I’m ashamed to admit I don’t find the time for working out like I should.  It somehow always pulls the short straw in my list of short-term priorities.

One thing I started doing that really seems to work for me is using the DVR or Netflix “Watch Instantly” to do home video workouts.  It really cracks me up to workout to my ol’ jr. high standby Cindy Crawford.  Those suckers stood the test of time!  They still hurt!  And if I can only get 20 minutes or so in I pop in my new favorite Wii game, Just Dance and groove until I break a sweat.  Hey at least my arse is moving while laughing, right?  If you all could only picture my uncoordinated effort at trying to keep up with Brittney’s Womanizer!

So how about it? Any other tips for me on how to squeeze in some workout time in a long stressful day? Any favorite on demand videos we should all check out?
