Exercise in the early morning. Or later at night if time and ambition.

Chores? Ha!!!

 I walk with a few coworkers on fifteen minute breaks. As for daily chores, the only ones I HAVE to do involve the animals ~ making sure everybody has food and water and checking the chicken coop for eggs.

I choose to do the daily chores I can get to and skip the exercise.  I do get to walk the dog (she is learning the leash walk at 6 months old) in the evenings while DD is going to sleep, so that is a little exercise.  And I figure doing the chores around the house is a somewhat halfway workout.

I haven't ran in a week (YIKES) but I gave myself 3 times in the day to get my exercise done.....morning before work (usually strength training at home), during my lunch, or during my daughters' soccer practice/at home.  I have been running more (just 30 minutes) and it's nice.  This week has been really busy so I haven't been running.

As for chores, each of them has a chore to be done every night that does help a lot and I just do what I can.  I don't have a perfect home but it's clean enough.

 Chores are about the only exercise I get.

Yes, I have posted this before, but it really explains my exercise routine.

I go to the gym every day right after work, unless I need to be somewhere. I do chores as I find the time; I try to do a little each night.

I work out in the morning after the kids go to school & before work. Chores are done a bit each day with bigger cleaning on Saturdays (usually).
