Getting obsessed with exercise - Goal 1
Wouldn't it be great to wake up with Demi Lovato's body or Kate Hudson's body? Oh hell yeah. Part of their success, according to a paraphrasing of what Ms. Hudson said on Kelly and Michael recently, is related to keeping in shape. I believe it. I don't have a trainer or a job that pays me enough to hire one, but hey, I can be obsessed for a little while too, right?
Carving out a specific hour of a day for a workout is great (and we will get to that in a little bit) but first, start each day with the mindset to move more. By reminding your body to get more movement throughout the day, you will be more likely to do it. So sit less and stand more. Take more steps and stairs. Walk to talk with a coworker instead of emailing them.
Stretch in your chair, squat to pick something up, park far away from stores so you will walk more, stand up when you talk on the phone and do some exercises while you watch TV. There are numerous ways you can sneak more movement into your day. Begin each day with a move more mindset and you will find them.
That's step 1. And that's also today's goal. Today, I will move more.
