Reese Witherspoon exercises rain or shine

Are you tired and feel like you are stuck in an exercise rut? Do you not feel like going to the gym today? Spring has finally sprung so if it is not raining or snowing in your area, get outside today.

Exercise does not need to be an all out event every single day. There are days you may not have gotten enough sleep or just feel sluggish. On those days, just get out and do some type of physical activity. If you can do 30 minutes a day for 7 days a week, you will be able to maintain your weight fairly well.

Exercise can be anything from walking to and from work to walking up and down the stairs in your apartment building a few times a day. As long as you are active and burning calories your body will do the rest.

Reese Witherspoon is seen here leaving an exercise class because it is raining outside. She normally runs with a friend outside or takes a yoga class. Changing the environment or whom you exercise with daily can also add variety and interest to your daily workout routine. The most important thing to remember is that you need to do some type of physical activity daily.

For those of you who live in a cold climate where it is hard to get outside. Think creatively about where you can work out. Can you take a lunch break and walk up and down the stairs in your 20 story office building? Can you work out in the office gym? Can you run around your office complex? How about hiking your local mountains on the weekend? If your kids bike ride, get yourself a bike and follow them outdoors after school.

If you get moving, you will get out of the exercise rut. As they say: Just do it.
