Not That Kind of Irregularity

The one or two loyal readers of this blog likely already understand the difficulties of trying to keep to a regular workout schedule. It isn't easy to find a couple of hours every day just for exercise. I think I have mentioned before that one of my early mistakes was to completely miss out on exercise if I couldn't find a two hour window in my day.  Then one day turns into to two days etc.  You know where that leads.  Thanks to my daughter Alexandra, fondly known as Chico, I no longer do that.  Chico turned me on to the 8 Minute workouts on Youtube.  Even if I can't make it to the gym, I can usually find time for a run.  Then I just do an 8 Minute workout whenever I can find 8 minutes in my day.  I actually do the 8 Minute Stretch everyday before and after my run.  And when I can't make it to the gym, I fill in with 8 minute Abs, 8 Minute Legs and 8 Minute Arms.  They are fantastic! And there are several other workouts, including 8 Minute Buns, that I haven't tried yet.  So if you are finding yourself facing the same kind of regularity challenges I have, you might want to visit  And if you don't have access to Youtube, just ask your kid.  Thanks Chico!  I hope you have fabulous time in Cozumel.
