Who has time to work out these days? I know I don't! But I love working out and I love feeling like I've accomplished something for myself. But working 10-12 hour days and commuting 2.5 hours a day doesn't leave much time for long work outs. I've always been a fan of workout plans which are 30 minutes or less, because anyone can make a 30 minute workout happen for at least a few days a week! I love my Fitbit too! How many of you guys use your Fitbit on a daily basis? I love challenging my friends and hitting my daily steps. I make an effort everyday to hit 10,000 steps even though I sit at a desk most of the day! I walk around the office, quite frequently. I also take 3 breaks a day taking walks outside for 15-30 minutes. Not only do my walks help me get some exercise and work on my cardio, it helps me refresh my mind after a few hours of sitting in front of a computer and answering to phones.
I love keeping my body, mind and soul happy and healthy. The other day I was on my Fitbit dashboard and I saw something new, (or maybe something I just never noticed) it was a workout program called Fitstar! I checked it out, and let me tell you I love it! As soon as I downloaded it I was already picking a workout to do! The app and workouts are free but if you want to do the premium package it's $39.99 a year which comes with a personal trainer. For new I'm just going to see how well I do with the free program. So let me tell you how it works... there are a list of workouts you can pick from all in the range of 20-50 minutes which is amazing! Once you find your workout for the day you can click the title of the workout and it will play a video on exactly how to execute it! I loved that because I don't always follow still photo's well and love to see videos so I can understand how to do the exercise correctly. All of the exercises tell you either how many reps or seconds to do each one and it goes by really quickly! I'm on day 3 and I've done two of the programs ( Quick Strength and Hard Core ) and I'm definitely still sore today! I am very excited to try more of the workouts and see how well they work for me! I hope you give it a try too! I'll update you in a month with my progress!
