If I were to use one word to describe my typical Saturday morning activities, I’d say “relaxing.” In this case, it is a euphemeism for “sloth-like.” From about 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., you would typically find me reading on the couch or playing on the computer–still in pjs. Today, I want to begin redefining my Saturday mornings. From lying down to getting up and owning the day–making every minute count. This morning, I’ll be taking my two dogs on a long walk (they’re going to love this whole lifestyle change thing–more fun for them!) and heading to the gym. If the weather cooperates, I’ll also be walking a lot at a corn maze tonight.
My goal with this whole process is to do active things that I love so it doesn’t feel like “working out.” Instead, it feels like “having fun.” Walking the dogs, bike riding and swimming are all things that I love and will be great activities to incorporate into my new Saturdays. How about you? What calorie-burning activities do you enjoy? (Keep this at least PG-13 clean, please!)
