Hi and welcome to another sports and fitness coaching blog post.
So since I wrote my last fitness blog I haven’t really done any working out at all. I know it is so lazy but having such a short space of time it has not been possible, but once Henry does full days at school again it will be.
Is it good to take time off?
Sometimes I feel it is, because you do have to allow your body to recharge and be in the right mindset to do any, which I haven’t and I have only had short spells of time which I use to write my books and blogs.
I like to spend the afternoons with my son so we have that 1 to 1 interaction.
What I am going to begin to do is use my weekends to workout even if it for 10 minutes or so least it will be something.
Finding the time when you are working parent can be tricky but you find a way.
I say use what time you have and work exercise around your lifestyle not the other way around.
If you have stairs in your house use these as part of your exercise just make sure all is clear as you don’t want to be tripping over a toy left on the stairs.
Do this for all places you wish to workout, especially if you working out barefooted.
Invest in a workout mat. I love mine in fact I will be at some point grabbing this to workout at my home in Wimbledon.
When training at home I would invest in a set of dumbbells as these are great to keep on you and leave them in a room that I use a lot. In sight in mind.
Working out at home doesn’t need to be hard graft in fact some workouts when I do, I take my time. It’s not about racing your workouts but benefiting from them.
So take care and stay safe.
Many thanks for reading,
