Fitting in Exerise Over the Holidays

As the pressure of the holidays increases it seems the pressure to decrease exercise intensifies. I have been thinking how I will continue to move and exercise once we are traveling and in another city for Christmas up to the New Year.

I came across a neat example of how to fit in even a 10 minute Cardio workout. It seemed simple and doable so I thought I would share it-

0:00 to 1:00 - Warm up with a brisk walk (outside or around the house)
1:00 to 2:00 - Jumping jacks
2:00 to 3:00 - Jump rope (pretend if you don't have a rope)
3:00 to 4:00 - Run as fast as you can for 1 minute (in place or outside)
4:00 to 5:00 - Ski hops: Stand with feet together, bend knees and jump a few feet to the right and then left, landing with bent knees.
5:00 to 6:00 - Jumping jacks
6:00 to 7:00 - Walk as fast as you can
7:00 to 8:00 - Jump rope
8:00 to 9:00 - Jumping jacks
9:00 to 10:00 - Cool down and catch your breath

Somehow just seeing this makes me feel like it is possible! I want to believe I can be in control even when I am not at home. I can fit in exercise even when there is no gym nearby. And with the craziness of running from one event to another I can still find 10 minutes, a couple of times a day to burn some calories and feel healthy!
