Working out: Something is better than Nothing

For many of us working out is a full hour to slip away from the craziness that is the holidays, but what if you just don't have the time to get away to do your full work out? Or what if you're like me and can't bear to miss out on family board game time?

Anything is better than nothing as far as working out is concerned. If you are worried about not having time to work out, make a promise to yourself that you'll do what you can when you can. This way you won't put too much pressure on yourself to get it done, but you will feel good when you do.

Fit's Tip: If you're worried about it being worth your time in terms of calories burned, work out harder faster. This means if you usually run 3 miles in 30 minutes, then try to cut time but still burn the calories. Try doing 3 miles in 20 minutes. This way your heart rate should be at a higher intensity, which means you will still be burning a high amount of calories.
