What. A. Week. I have been off all week and it really hasn’t been as enjoyable as I expected. When everyone else you know is working, being on “vacation” isn’t that fun. My gym routine changed this week and I’ve been going a lot later (10am) since I don’t have to get it in before work. I actually HATE going later because it is so much busier and it takes me a lot longer to get my workout in.
The other day I really didn’t feel like going for a gym workout (because I’m soooo busy this week at home and all;) so I did a home workout instead and I seriously kicked my own booty. It’s been two days and I am still so sore. It took me less than 40 minutes and I was a serious sweaty mess by the time I was done.
If you don’t have a treadmill at home, you can always do another form of cardio – run stairs, jumping jacks, jog on the spot, etc. Anything that gets your heart rate up will work. Oh, and TM sprints are 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off as fast as you can. For my weighted squats I used my pink sandbag but you could always use free weights, bags of rice, cans, water jugs…whatever works!
Having access to a gym is great but this workout was proof that you don’t need fancy equipment to get a good burn.
Speaking of a good burn, today was week 3, day 3 of James Wilson’s program and it was such a great workout. It was basically two exercises per body part (shoulders, back, chest, legs) with some burpees thrown in (because he is evil). It was the first time in a loooong time that I did leg presses and I was happy with being able to get up to 150 pounds on my last set!
200lbs, here I come!! …one day!
I am excited for the next nine weeks of the program! Now if I can just stop dipping my finger into the container of chocolate frosting that’s sitting in my fridge…
Do you own any home workout equipment?
What are you having for dinner tonight? I need ideas!
