This weekend, KP is doing his first ever triathlon sprint. I’m so proud of this guy!
His dedication to getting fit has been so inspiring to me, and I’ve found myself working out quite a bit more as a result. I’m not a crazy fitness buff, but I have found a few tricks that keep even a couch-potato slacker like me hitting the pavement.
- Keep it short and sweet. I’m a busy girl. I work for myself and for another job, I have about a million hobbies, and I try to be social in there too. I don’t have a ton of time to work out. That’s why I work out for half an hour to an hour at most- but I try to push myself hard during that time.
- Get the gadgets. I am a tech junkie, and with my iphone, I am able to keep more fit than ever. Kyle’s sister showed me a new app called Nike Training Club that has completely changed my work outs during non-running days. You pick your goal and target area, and it shows you exactly how to move and for how long. It’s seriously kicked my butt! That combined with Nike Running has been a great personal trainer, and somehow that digital validation of having worked out keeps me going!
- Look the part. I’ve already admitted how I like to dress for a role– but workout clothes can be incredibly motivating. There’s something about wearing tight, neon spandex that makes you feel hot, but also motivates you to keep everything firm…or at least less jiggly.
With that, I’m off to do a short run around the neighborhood! Do you have any workout tips and tricks?
