No Dough? No Excuses! (Plus an Exciting Announcement!)

We’re still coming off all of the excitement of our one-year Fit Bottomed Girls celebration, but we’ve got a big announcement to keep the fun going! In addition to keeping up this site, we’ll also be blogging over at Embassy Suites’ BusinessBalance.com site at various times throughout 2009. We’ll be sounding off on keeping fit when traveling, giving fitness tips for busy people and answering reader questions. The articles will be geared toward travelers, but they’ll still have full FBG attitude and will contain helpful information for anyone and everyone. We’ll be sure to let you know when new content goes live so you can head over and check it out! Read on for our first Business Balance post on cheap (or free) workouts for anyone in a money crunch. —Erin

P.S. Plus, you can see the faces behind the Fit Bottoms!

Economy, economy, economy. You’re probably sick of hearing about it by now, but odds are it’s affecting your wallet or, at the very least, your feelings of job security. When the economy takes such a hit, sometimes you have to take a closer look at the budget. You may start cutting back on the extras and maybe even scaling down on essentials. Gas in the car and food on the table become more important than those $5 lattes or maybe even your pricey gym membership, especially if you’re traveling for business a large part of the year. But if you sacrifice the gym in favor of other essentials, it doesn’t mean that you’re allowed to give up on the workouts, whether you’re at home or on the road for business. Lucky for you, your body doesn’t know how much dough you’re shelling out to get your heart rate up. Whether you’re in a fancy gym, on a track or simply on a walk between business meetings, your body doesn’t care how much you’re paying; your body just cares that it’s moving! So even if you’ve given up a few luxury items, there are numerous options for working out cheaply or totally free of charge, even when you’re away from home. And when it’s free, there’s no excuse!

    Very cool about the BusinessBalance site! Congratulations, FBGs. And Crabby's right: you are cute! Now I just wonder why you didn't show your faces sooner :).

    As for the dough thing…hmm…I'm seriously considering quitting the gym so I have more $ to go towards races…

    Great post!

    One of my favorite travel workouts is to do yoga in my room. I carry my yogitoes mat in my suitcase and have audio classes from yogadownload.com on my iPod or computer. Since you can download classes from 20 to 90 minutes, they can be fit in anytime.

    Congrats on the new gig!

    I'm such a fan of running because it's so CHEAP! It is possible to go overboard and get a bunch of expensive gear, but when it comes down to it, you really just need a pair of shoes and you're good to go!

    Congrats on the new Embassy Sweets gig ~ Fun!

  7. Sagan says:

    So glad to see what you both look like! That's awesome that you've got the extra blogging going on.

    Exercising outside and such is so much more fun than a gym 🙂
