Okay. My complex, it has this gym. And in that gym, there is a treadmill, and an elliptical and all other manner of gym equipment.
I have been feeling super sluggish lately, and the only reliable time I have to exercise is in the evenings. Problem is, I REALLY don’t like walking after dark by myself, so I need to figure something else out.
My plan is:
- Mondays: Yoga. I just purchased a 1x per week membership at my studio. This will be perfect for me. My favourite Yin instructor teaches Monday nights at 7:45pm (after little man is in bed, and after any work appointments I might have), so most weeks I’ll go to the Monday night Yin class.
- At least 4 other days per week: Gym. I’ve avoided the gym in my complex just because it’s unknown – I haven’t been into it before. I figure if I can spend even half of the time I usually would watch T.V. in the evening (usually about an hour before bed), watching a show or listening to a podcast while walking on the treadmill, I’ll both get some movement in and reduce the opportunity to snack while watching T.V.
This should be manageable. This plan will not require any major schedule changes – it just involves repurposing existing time. I’ll keep you posted!
