Yoda's Exercise Plan

By: Samantha Knowles
I am a working mom who is looking to stay in shape. I am not trying to run a marathon or hike 20 miles through a mud pit dressed like a ballerina, but I am trying to stay active, build muscle and lose fat. I have found out first hand that once you turn 40 - it is all downhill. Your metabolism slows down (which totally sucks) and I have a host of injuries that I am dealing with due to years of soccer. So here are a few moderate ideas about fitness and tips that everyone can use!

1. Commit. Yoda said it best: Do or do not, there is no try. Don't straddle the line between wanting to get fit and actually doing something about it. Take the first step towards healthier habits and commit to a 30-day fitness challenge. Go for a walk or run on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Then perform a circuit of at least five bodyweight exercises on Tuesday and Thursday. Keep it up for a month to make the exercise habit really stick.

2. Make a plan. Without a good game plan, a trip to the gym can quickly become a complete waste of time. To avoid wandering aimlessly from one piece of equipment to the next, map out your workouts ahead of time and set clear training goals. When workouts have a purpose, we're more able to balance sweating with socializing (yes, it's OK to laugh a little -- in fact, we encourage it!).

3. Stay on schedule. Habits don't just happen, they're formed. Figure out when there's time for exercise -- first thing in the morning, at lunch, or after work. But don't stress; there is no right time to work out. Consistency is the real game-changer. Prioritize exercise, and form a healthy habit by sticking to the schedule every day. I have tried to turn over a new leaf in this regard by scheduling exercise into my calendar like I do any other meeting, conference or appointment. If it is in my calendar, it doesn't get pushed off as easily and it is respected by other family members as a committment.

With these easy to implement ideas, it shouldn't be hard to turn over a new leaf and start exercising tomorrow. Remember, tomorrow is a new day, with new posibilities, and new challenges, but with new rewards. Make the most of it.
