INSTAGRAM ISN’T JUST FOR SELFIES

Most of their workouts are around 30 minutes and I obtain it done when my daughter is doing her online Zoom meeting with her elementary class and my toddler usually tries to join in with me. "
Candie H. "For keeping motivated no matter what the circumstances, I highly recommend this Instagram page: @ziggityboom. This mom-of-four shows how she’s prioritizing small improvements in fitness and diet while staying at home with her family and adding school-at-home to her day. I am most impressed that she may slip from her plan, but only for a day, and then she’s right back at it. "
THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT
Amanda N.: "I use the Nike apps. And I don’t force myself to proceed when I would like ‘t want to. This AM, I did a 7 min workout and this afternoon I’ll go for a 1 mile walk. Keeping it simple right now. "

I would like ‘t have a Peloton bike but you can pay for a monthly subscription to their app for the workouts. It’s $12.99/month and you have access to workouts for treadmill running, walking, strength training, yoga, and even the bike workouts. It really helps for those days when I can’t obtain outdoors for an extended run. "
Katy R.: "I have a program named Fiton I enjoy, it’s all kinds of workouts from yoga to HIIT and also the majority of them have been 15-20 minutes long. It is possible to set targets for yourself and post progress pictures also if this’s something that you ‘re considering! "

I will complete that this weekend and then decide whether to set a new goal to complete a 15K or 10 miler next. For motivation, I have been listening to podcasts by Rich Roll and David Goggins, two ultra marathoners. They are very inspiring people. "

I always sort of wrote off in-home exercise equipment, figuring that I didn’t need* gear to workout in your home, and when I wished to get it done, I’d only do it. I really never did, and it turns out that it really will make a massive difference for me personally to have the gear in the home! "
THE GREAT OUTDOORS
