@BMcC9, thanks for the suggestions! Mostly, it's hard for me to get in a workout at home because I have two small kids (age 6 and 3) and they are needing of my attention. Since I work full time I feel bad coming home and not paying attention to them. Also... kids notwithstanding, I just strongly prefer to exercise outside of the home- even if it's in a gym. I find I work out harder and longer when I have somewhere specific to go that is intended solely for a workout. I also am not a fan of staring at a screen (TV or otherwise while I exercise). I know, I'm weird! I'm super outdoorsy, so really I like to be looking at the sky or nature. But, that's not always possible. I usually fit in my workouts on my lunch break, walking over to the community center if the weather is bad to use a treadmill or the indoor walking track. But when my workday makes that not possible, it can sometimes be days of missed workouts.
I use an Audio app for workouts, and there are so many great workouts. Basically it's an app with a trainer set to a playlist, and you pick from the trainers you like and the music genres. I love the strength training workouts on there and the kids will sometimes do them with me... that's really what I need to make a commitment to doing.
Thanks so much for your enthusiasm and the motivation to think this through!
