Last week I came across a suggestion on Samanthatoday that is definitely worth passing along. Click here if you want to just view her original post – I am basically just regurgitating what I read on her blog, fyi.
I don’t have time at the moment to do a full workout unless I’m going to strap Mr. Cam into his cage stroller to go on a run, but I do occasionally have 10 minutes to get a little workout on. So I was excited when I learned that Netflix has free, streamable work out videos! (golly, do I sound like an infomercial or what?) I was also wondering why I myself never thought to search for such videos on Netflix…huh, anyway…
I didn’t feel like working out at all last week because I was tired had other really important things to do, but I convinced myself that a 10 minute workout wouldn’t really be all that bad. So I started the workout and made it through the first 10 minute segment. Then lo and behold, after 10 minutes I was feeling pretty good so I figured I might as well do another one. Repeat once more and before I knew it I had completed three 10 minute segments! Go me!
The videos are called 10 Minute Solution and there’s a bunch of different workouts you can try.
So you can check those out or just do what I do most of the time if I need a little boost: crank up the tunes and go wild! If you’ve ever been to a pilates, kickboxing, or cardio class you likely remember a few moves you can do on your own. Or just dance!
Something I plan on doing with my kids (as long as they will go along with it) is having a daily afternoon dance party. Whether it lasts two minutes or twenty, I think it’ll be a good way to have fun and probably put everyone in a good mood. So I’ll let you know in a few years if this is happening or if I’m still grooving alone. :)
