It’s time to bust-through your excuses for not exercising, with these three easy ways to get your precious body moving more! The result? A fitter, stronger, happier and more sane mum! Whether you’re doing the washing, brushing your teeth or about to open a wine bottle, Lizzy Williamson from Two Minute Moves will show you how to exercise when you’re busy, exhausted or can’t leave the house.
When I was at one of the darkest points in my life, I started doing two minutes of exercise and somehow, thanks to this incredibly powerful tool called movement, I found myself climbing back out of this downward spiral and in to a place where I could look at my beautiful baby and toddler again and experience true joy.
Two minutes was all I had in me some days be it from time, exhaustion, lack of motivation or my mood. But some days, I could do more. The 10X2 Workout has been born from many of you asking me for more. I love the idea of doing 10 x 2 minute intervals. It feels more achievable somehow. You can tell that excuses voice that says to you…,
- ‘I’m too exhausted’
- ‘I can’t be bothered’
- ‘I hate exercise’
- ‘I’m too unfit’
- ‘I’m too overweight’
- ‘I’ll do it later’
- ‘I don’t have the time’
…to just do 2 minutes. Now another 2 minutes, and before you know it you’ve spent 20 minutes giving back to your body, mind and soul plus had some fun.
At the North Shore Mum’s event for International Women’s Day, I spoke about my journey, the importance of exercise for our overall wellbeing and also showed a few fun moves that you can do around the house. But if you didn’t bring your notepad or your missed out on tickets to the event, I’ve put together a special video just for North Shore Mums with my three favourite moves.
Yes, it is possible to make exercise a part of your day no matter how busy, tired, unmotivated or unfit you feel. Enjoy!
