How to ditch the weekend warrior rut and make fitness a part of your life


I was a weekend warrior and mostly sedentary at my desk during the week. I wasn't always like this, but it had become my new unwelcome reality. The struggle to stay in shape was real and I knew it was shaving days off my life. I became desperate to fix it. We all know the text-book-perfect well, hydrate, sleep, stay positive, make realistic goals, etc. But I came to a point where even that seemed unreachable.

So then what? Do I give up or postpone health for when the kids are grown or I after I retire?

No way.

In my stubborn-with-a-smile style I relentlessly discovered hacks that have helped me shift back to a life of daily fitness. I had to craft what worked for ME. I had to go beyond the usual and figure out what would was relevant to me today. It was a long process of discovery, and my list continues to evolve.

Many of these items are less than conventional, some are serious, some silly - but all are mine. Maybe, these will help you discover what works for you. I'll sharing a series of posts that talk a about each item in my own breaking barriers list below.
