The challenge in any exercise plan is to stay interested with the same enthusiasm that was there during the start of the exercise plan.
Summer Sanders, who is preparing to run the Disney Princess Half Marathon at the end of February, has written in her blog about ways to improve fitness and most importantly stay on track.
In her blog, she stresses on the importance of days of rest during an exercise schedule.
She also says that committing to an exercise routine does not really mean that one needs to do to a strenuous workout for an hour every single day. The key is to be consistent and keep moving even if it is for a quick 10-minute workout. There are great benefits even from light exercises that help work muscles and improve metabolism.
According to her, there is no need to wait for that one good hour everyday for a workout. The idea is to not skip the work out even if it is for just 10 minutes each day. This will help make fitness a part of our everyday lives.
Rest in between longer and difficult workouts is also important. This would make for a balanced exercise schedule.
