As I’ve been mentioning in my Eat, Move, Wear, Love, Link weekly round up posts, I’ve had a distinct lack of ‘move’ recently. Of course having a baby is a pretty decent excuse for not hitting the gym, but now that Finley is almost 3 months old and we have had his heart surgery out the way I feel it’s time to refocus on it. For me, working out is not about burning calories it’s about changing my body shape, making me feel fit and strong, and more recently, to give me an endorphin feel good hormone boost.
Time is really hard to find when you have a new born, but perhaps it’s having a busy job or lots going on in life that is your challenge. These 10 minute workouts require either no or minimal equipment so can be done fairly easily anywhere. 10 minutes might not sound like a lot, but when it’s all the time you have it’s better than nothing and can actually be quite effective, especially if it enables you to fit in a couple of workouts in the day, for example morning and evening. You could also do a couple of workouts back to back, for example a cardio focused workout and a toning workout for more complete exercise. If you do have a little more time then check out my 30 workouts under 30 minutes post.

Do you struggle to fit in exercise? What is your favourite form of exercise? Why is working out important to you?
