I’ll admit it: I can be extremely lazy. Between a full time job, a part time blog, and all the other crap that life throws in my general direction, I have difficulty coming home at night and not launching myself, fully clothed, on to the bed. And I don’t even have children, as many people like to point out.
I do, however, suffer from insomnia, and I’ve heard that it can be quite similar. Apart from the fact that I’d love to have something that kept me awake at night for an actual reason, it’d be nice to have some company in the wee small hours to stop me slowly descending into inevitable madness.
It seems blatantly obvious, I know, but it is the biggest cause of me stopping a particular fitness regime. If you HATE your workouts, you’ll simply give them up and sit on the sofa, stuffing your face full of onion rings, scrolling through Netflix for anything that contains no gratuitous exercise scenes. Narcos is my current series of choice, in case you were wondering.
I know, I know, it’s always touted as the biggest mistake EVER, but it works for me. Nothing will get me in my swimsuit quicker than having shelled out £16 for a Membership at my local pool. Seriously, I’m determined to make that saving on the regular price and have stuck with my twice weekly sessions for…ooh, around 3 weeks now. What could possibly go wrong?
I have to drive past my local swimming pool to get home from work. Every night. This makes it quite difficult to justify NOT stopping by. This is further bolstered by the fact that I keep my swimming gear packed at all times and just hurl it in the boot before I head to the office. Sometimes, I can hear it calling to me during the day, begging to be used.
|Ditch the car. Even if it is as pretty as this one.|
If, say, I fancy the idea of going to Dolgellau’s charity shops during my lunch break, but can’t actually be bothered walking there, I turn on my walking app. This way, I can monitor the steps and distance and often it’s enough to get me over the massive hurdle that is removing myself from my chair and venturing outside.
This is pretty much my answer to everything. Feeling down? Get a dog! Feeling happy? Get a dog! Want a cat? Get a dog!
Dogs are amazing snuggle buddies and will love you unconditionally, even if you’re the laziest person on the planet. They also adore Netflix binges and even the boy ones will ALWAYS let you control the remote. Who could ask for more?

Do you have any exercise hacks for lazy girls??
