It’s day three of non-stop rain and I’m beginning to feel like a shut in! I don’t have the skills or motivation really to build an ark …and while, yes I could venture out with an umbrella in tow- that just makes everything seem more challenging. So what to do on a rainy day besides watch bad movies? How about this: Lay a pilates/yoga mat out and do little bursts of workouts throughout the day.
I’ve been doing roll-ups while I wait for the dryer to buzz. I practiced balance and standing on one foot while watching Dirty Dancing – again. A random plank here and there does wonders for my core, arms and energy. Doing my workout in little bits and pieces throughout the day makes it seem less like a workout and I actual think cumulatively I do more because I never reach fatigue. So this rainy day – I’ve managed to get the laundry done, clean house a little, watch a movie and fit in several spurts of workouts. At the end of the day I not only feel productive and fit but also relaxed.
