It is essential to keep yourself in shape in order to be able to craft, I mean work, 8 hours a day. Both mentally and physically. It is so easy to spend too much time sewing or working on the computer getting web pages updated, blog posts posted, and forget to eat or spend 30 minutes being physically active.
After working for 3-4 hours, I get up, put on my walking shoes and walk 1 mile. Everyday, rain or shine. 3 days a week, I ride my stationery bike and aim for 15-20 miles. I normally multi-task. I hate using the handlebars on the bike. I devised a holder on the center bar of the bike to hold yarn, tape a pattern on the picture frame and knit till that 20 miles is up!
I don’t do any strength training, which I really do need to do. Muscles help burn fat and calories. No matter how often I tell myself that, I simply can’t motivate myself to do that.
Do you have an exercise regimen? Leave a comment and share your routine. Do you knit or crochet while pedaling on the exercise bike? Have a fit and productive day!
