Hey, how's it going?
I hope you're having fun this summer. It often gets a little crazy if you have school-age kids. I know I have gotten spoiled with having them in school all day over the past 2 years. But I do really enjoy having them around all day during the summer. It's nice to take things at a slower pace and go out and explore and do fun things together.
But I always take time to get my workout in. I find it easiest to do it early in the morning before anyone else wakes up. There is nothing else competing for my time early in the morning, so it's a habit I can easily stick to.
That is the key to making fitness a habit. Find activities that work for you, that you enjoy, and that you can build into your schedule (as effortlessly as possible). I used to take classes at gyms, but I no longer do because I don't like having to figure out how to squeeze the class into my schedule. I literally find myself running from one thing to the next all day long, so the less transit time for fitness/physical activity, the better. That is what works for me. That doesn't mean that will work for you. You are going to have to experiment to come up with your own optimal system/time for working out. Most of the workouts I post can easily be done in the comfort of your own home, though sometimes you may need to modify them.
If you only workout at home, try my Trim in 20 series. They're great workouts for beginners to advanced, and they can all be done in a small space at home with no equipment in about 20-ish minutes a day. So just schedule the time and get it done!
