What do you do when you are busy-busy?

Hi! I have not forgotten about my blog, just been busy.

I have found the past two weeks have been really busy and unexpected things have cropped up pushing my time over & causing me to miss scheduled classes. I love going to the exercise classes that I have been posting about, but have been unable to go the past few weeks for a variety of reasons. I have made a few of the water fitness classes, but not the land-based ones.

It is hard having a set workout schedule, I know, and I feel bad that my workout buddy (the awesome Liz D.) gets abandoned when I can't make it. I am also afraid that if I don't get back into a routine I will just stop as that has been my modis operandi in the past. (Perhaps by posting that that will prevent it from happening.)

The next six days of my life are booked with a 5-day cartography conference and an all-day volunteer opportunity at the Dallas Cowboys -Tennessee Titans game squeezed in on Sunday. The conferences are 8-12 hrs a day with 3-meals provided and no real opportunity to leave. I also have to be professionally dressed, so it is not like I can run off for an hour of super sweaty BOSU Blast and come back fresh as a daisy.

I am not a get-up-at-4am-to-get-in-a-workout type of girl, so with that in mind my question to you is this:

What do you to to ensure you get your workout in?

Total disclosure

Hello All,

I have been offered my first product for free in exchange for an honestly written review and decided I had better post a disclosure statement to cover myself before going any further. If you are a blogger and receive products for review, providing a disclosure is a nice way of letting your readers know that you are (or are not) paid, influenced, or otherwise swayed by the things you review/write about/give away in a contest. Is also required by the FTC (more on that here).

Thanks to Dani at Living Outside the Stacks for getting me squared away on this! (She rocks!)

My disclosure statement is below. To get your own go to
