Kick off Monday

I am finally feeling on top of the world again. Being sick really hit me hard! I do not usually get sick, so I guess when I do it knocks me down! BUT the good news is that I am ready to hit the ground running in full force. I don’t care that it is already January 5th and I lost 4 days of my new year start….today is the day that I am starting off my year on the right note! Since I literally didn’t eat much or move much while I was sick I decided to start this workout week slow and steady. Nothing crazy, just a workout to make me feel awake, alive and ready to get stronger and healthier.

I hope you enjoy this workout today. It is an amazing Monday to get motivated, set goals and start to keep yourself accountable. The way to extend your workouts and healthy eating beyond the typical 2 -4 weeks that most people last on their resolutions is through consistency and starting a routine that is easy. If you try and workout for hours a day it will quickly become too hard to manage. Use what you have at home and you will see results.
