The Old Fashion Way to Get Fit: Chores

“Big jobs usually go to the men who prove their ability to outgrow small ones.”
-  Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Obviously, the highest type of efficiency is that which can utilize existing material to the best advantage.”
-Jawaharlal Nehru

Be efficient. Get your exercise and your to-do list done at the same time. Kill two birds with one stone by running your errands on foot or bike.

Want a recipe for guilt-free pizza? Run to the pizzeria. Low fat grocery shopping? Walk to the supermarket and carry your groceries home.

Do your chores on Monday, with all your energy, so that they don’t interfere with your training later this week.  Don’t let the small stuff get in the way of your training – plan ahead!

Rest up, but stay active, all while creating more time for a week of Spartan WODs still to come.
