Workout Monday

Monday, February 17, 2020

Hey Guys! It's Monday and I know how tough Mondays can be and I know working out can be even tougher. I rarely ever really want to workout but, I firmly believe if you start your week with some exercise than you're more likely to carry that on throughout the week. Plus, once it's over I always feel better and my days are more productive. Let me get this out there I'm nowhere close to being a exercise buff. I'm completely clueless when it comes to all the different forms and trainings. I'm slowly learning, but what I do know is that I have to be active for this to work. Weight loss isn't going to happen on its own and it's extremely hard work, but it can be done and you can even enjoy it. Yes, I said enjoy! By enjoying the foods you eat and doing workout or exercise routines that your comfortable performing. If you hate what you're doing or feeling overwhelmed you're more likely to give up. Finding exercises that you like and enjoy, chances are you'll keep doing them. You don't have to do these crazy routines to get the results you want. Just move, baby! I personally like to keep it simple and do a variety of different activities to get my 30 minutes of cardio in throughout the day. Some days that's house cleaning others its exercise routines off workout apps or walk at home videos. My goal here is to share with you what I'm doing and routines that I love. In hopes that it can help one pesron find something they feel comfortable doing and loving! Now on to the workout... I found this little gem on YouTube last week and already I've done it 3 times! It's 15 minutes of 30 second intervals of walking/exercise. I absolutely love this workout because it's simple and can be done anywhere. It had my heart rate up, sweating and my legs were burning by the end! This 15 minute video by Holly Dolke can be found on YouTube m.youtube.com/wa
