BlogHer HQ has just moved to a new location, one with a fitness room available to all building tenants at no charge. I've even brought a bag with workout clothes to the office, where it waits patiently in my file cabinet drawer. But I have yet to take the plunge back in to exercising.
Not that I was a great exerciser before, but a few months ago my one reliable walking-buddy broke her foot, which led to surgery, so even that one commitment went out the window. And I didn't replace it with anything else.
Oh sure, a few weeks ago I put fresh batteries in the Wii Fit, so I could get back on track there, but I haven't done it yet.
So, I'm hoping to get a little inspiration from BlogHer's Crabby McSlacker, as she tackles all the common excuses in "Too Busy for Fitness This Holiday Season?"
My personal challenge: I'm traveling at least 3 days of each of the next three weeks. That means cross-country flights, hotel rooms, struggling to find vegan food (although luckily I'm hitting major urban centers, which are typically more veg-friendly.)
It would be so much easier to say I'll wait until my last frequent flier mile is logged for 2009, somewhere around December 17th.
But Crabby McSlacker will have none of it.
What are your tactics for fitting in exercise during this busy, stressful time of year?
