Release Date: 3/26/13

 

Whether you’re the MVP of your basketball team, an occasional jogger, or a self-acknowledged couch potato, The Girl’s Guide to Fitting in Fitness has practical advice that you can really use. The book shows how easy it is to wake up earlier and sharper (using yoga and relaxation techniques), eat healthier foods, and use the little in-between moments of your day—like the commute to school, or the time between classes—to incorporate a little bit of physical activity that will make a big difference. Fitting in Fitness is sure to help even the most devoted TV-addict lead a fitter, healthier, and happier life—without the need for a gym or fancy exercise equipment.

15 US/Canada winners will receive a copy of the book

    I try to fit in fitness by getting up early - if it's not done early, it doesn't get done. Now that the weather is nicer, I can make it part of my every-day schedule by changing things a bit - biking to work or walking home, etc.

    I exercise for 2 days then take 1 day off to recoup. I try to eat healthy daily and treat myself to a snack that I usually bake myself. No preservatives.

    I took up running back in November 2011! And then my Junior year, which is right now, I started joining sports! I'm currently a Cross Country runner, and a Powerlifter! I try and try to stick to clean or healthy eating but I always seem to slack on that! I still need a lot of work on the healthy eating part, but as for the fitness part, there's nothing I enjoy doing more than working out! (:

    I am terrible about fitting in fitness but when I can it is usually in the evening. Especially once summer hits and it stays light out longer.

    To stay healthy, I exercise everyday by biking to school, as well as being a member of the swim and tennis teams at my school. I also make sure I eat fruit and vegetables every day, even if they are from the school cafeteria.

    Well I haven't really, I have cut down on my soda and fries intake but I ate them with pretty much every meal so even cutting down I am probably eating to much of them.

    I fit fitness in by running 5 days a week, training for races (currently a marathon!), and watching the foods I eat. Less counting of calories and more eating healthy combinations of food to keep me fueled.

    I am currently trying to lose weight and am always looking for new and fun ways to accomplish that task. I fit exercise in usually in the morning or afternoon. The nights are never good because I find that if I put it off all day I will never go. I am also trying to eat healthier and not drink any soda.

    I take the stairs every chance I get at work, but now that I work some days from home, I notice I'm not moving around as much. I walk sometimes over my lunch break, and I always have my gym bag packed in the car, so no excuses I don't have my stuff to head to the gym. Other than that, i still find my sendentary work life a hindrance to being more active.
