Thursday Cardio

img_1439Hope you are all having an awesome week. I must say……I am ready for Friday night. I am ready to have my family home, spend some quality time together, get outside and play together, go on walks, maybe go to the rock climbing gym…….just have a fun weekend. Today it is gloomy here 😦 Which isn’t common…..so, I suppose to have it once in a while is nice. BUT it is definitely harder to get motivated!! So, what a better reason than that to get off of my butt and get some cardio in?

Utilize what you have at home……learn to use your bodyweight alone to get a good workout. πŸ™‚ I promise you, at home exercises CAN and WILL change your body!

Hope you all have an awesome Thursday and remember to drink LOTS of water!

Get Your Cardio On – Just 15 Minutes

This morning I woke up feeling like I really needed to get some good cardio in. Typically I enjoy doing a cardio warmup and then circuit type exercises with mostly body weight strength training, but not today. Today is about just getting my cardio on!!

The big myth that you need to get over is that you have to go to the gym and kill yourself on a treadmill/bike/elliptical OR go on a 10 mile run in the heat of the day to get a cardio workout in. FALSE, all you need is yourself and a place to get sweaty πŸ˜‰
