I’m a big believer that doing a little something (consistently) beats the heck out of doing nothing at all.

This week, I am following that belief completely.

There’s a lot going on here… one of our trainers is touring Europe for the next 2 weeks (jealous!), we are moving boot camp locations (pain in the butt), and I am training 2x as many classes as normal to keep things running without a hiccup.

I’m all over the freaking place. Time is of the essence. Luckily, I love what I do… a lot.

I’m not letting my crazy schedule keep me from doing what needs to get done. My goal is to be efficient by choosing my priorities and by aiming to do a little bit of a lot.

Including my workouts.

My own training may suffer (just a little) this week. But I know life will get back to a routine soon. For now, I am at peace knowing that if I have a 5 minute window to workout, I need to take it and be thankful.

What can you possibly do in 5 minutes?
