Back by popular demand … I am sharing another one of my favorite treadmill workouts. I know many of you have experienced the same love – hate feeling I have for these workouts.
I know they are hard.
I know they are awful.
I know they make your sweat A LOT!
I spend my life working out. This is my job and it is a passion of mine. I love starting my day with a sweat and getting myself moving. Ok, thats a small lie. Trust me, I do have mornings that I do not want to workout. Mornings where I don’t think I can find the motivation or just don’t feel like it. (This is not a lie.)
BUT… I push pass.
I know that thought can be temporary and if I just focus on the first five minutes of putting one foot in front of the other I will be in it and feel good about it.
Cardio is key for me, no doubt. But, I also believe toning is just as important. I hesitate to use the word “lifting” as I know that scares some of you away! Instead I am going to share some body weight exercises you can do anywhere. I suggest you get outside if you can, this time of year the weather is amazing and I always find this so refreshing.
Remember when it starts to get hard that is when you know its working. So get after it.
The conversation typically goes like this…
Them: “So, do you just workout all day?”
Me: “Well, yes. That is my job. It’s more then that though.”
Them: “Yes, yes of course. What do you do? I never have enough time.”
Me: “Well, you have to make time. You have to plan it. You have to schedule it. More importantly you have to make time for YOU.”
Them: “Yea, you’re right. Sometimes I just don’t know what to do when I am in the gym by myself. I walk in and just kind of walk around. What is your go to exercise?”
If you are like every other women on this planet, you can not wait to get home after a long day of whatever it was that you were doing, take off your pants and put on your most dreamy pair of leggings that you have. I know men think this thought process is crazy… like, why is it necessary to have to get your pants off right away, two steps into the doorway? Please understand men, you will just never understand, just go with it.
Ladies, if you are not sure if you have found the most perfect pair of leggings out there yet -don’t worry… I am here to save the day. Lucky for you this is what I live in
