Everyday Living, Fitness, New Face of 60

I think everyone starts their fitness plans the same way……we go right off of the edge and commit to an hour at the gym maybe 3 – 5 times a week.  Then “life” happens and we ditch the plan.  No “raise of hands” needed, but how many times does that happen?  Every year?  What if we chose to start slowly and mindfully….no gianormous pressure…..no hour long blocked out calendars……strolling into it…..

START WITH MINI WORKOUTS

Your normal plan of attack is, I would guess, full-throttle forward  movement scheduling daily gym sessions a few days a week. But, why not take it back a notch?  And start small. We’re talking 5-minute workout small.

I am often asked in the gym how one can lose weight and tone up.  My usual response is that they need to start slow with sensible routines to get into condition first.   It is an immediate way to combat any excuse you may have as to why you can’t exercise — after all, who doesn’t have five minutes somewhere in their day?  Some people say, ‘I don’t have 30 minutes to work out; I can’t even get to the gym; where do I start?”  Start with a mini workout — literally 5 minutes.”   Maybe you lift the detergent bottle several times on each side while sorting laundry…..think outside the box.

It could be crunches while you’re watching TV, squats while you fold the laundry or a walk around the neighborhood.  It sounds silly but these are the types of movements that you want to start doing so you get that muscle memory.   You trick yourself into  seeing the workout as just five minutes and who knows? You may be inspired to go for five more minutes and that will build and build.

This little mental hack is twofold. First, it’s easier to convince yourself to do something for five minutes rather than 30, especially if you’ve been off your workout grind for a while. Beyond that, you are slowly starting to condition your mind to put health front and center and getting your body used to moving, which will help build motivation over time.  Get some gal pals together and walk (and talk trash) or agree to meet at a gym and get through a couple of exercises together.

Are you exercising regularly?  How did you start your routine?  Did you have an “accountability partner?”  Do you know you DON’T need a gym to get a great workout?  What is your current physical condition?

    When I initially commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each time a
    comment is added I get 4 emails with the exact same comment.
    Perhaps there is a means you can remove me from that service?
    Many thanks!

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple
    ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be
    a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the
    page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Heya just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t
    loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking
    issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.

    Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so
    I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any recommendations for beginner blog writers?

    I’d really appreciate it.
