So You Think You Don't Have Time to Work Out

Thanks to Allen Branch from Fitness One in Kernersville for providing this “excuse busting” illustration of how we really do have time to fit exercise into our lives.  According to Allen, you can get and stay fit in as little as 4 hours per week.  Check out the chart below to see how you can find fitness time in your weekly schedule.

I have three awesome kids – Andrew, Carley and Laura. My husband, Alton, is a delivery driver by day with dreams of one day publishing his own comic book. Yes, he is a geek, but I love him anyway.

I have been working at WBFJ since September 2004 when God threw me out of the boat I was riding in and set me on a new and wonderful course. I love co-hosting the morning show, although the lack of sleep does make me a bit loopy at times.
