Late summer harvest
At this time of year, my evenings are filled with harvesting and prepping veggies and fruits from the garden (and a few from the farmer's market too). I find it's fairly late by the time I get a chance to fit in some of my regular evening routine. I've found a few time savers that have come in handy especially when I'm spending a good deal of time minding pots of simmering sauces and preserves.
Even if I only have a few minutes, I find that I can fit in a bit of my favorite activities so I don't miss out on them completely and lose momentum or inspiration.

Fitness program at homeThe garden provides me with plenty of physical activity many days, but sometimes I am looking for a little more movement or stretching. A husband and wife team have created fitnessblender.com which has plenty of interval training videos that work for all fitness levels. The videos are easily searchable by length of time, intensity, simple equipment needed, etc. and can be combined to create personalized workouts that fit your fitness or energy level and the amount of time you have available. Access to the videos is free and there is plenty of variety to keep your workout from becoming boring.
