Because let's be real, 20 pushups (lady-like style) is all I can do without stopping and crying. So in an effort to get into shape this year I had to really commit. And not make excuses, which with a kid, you can come up with a reason to not do anything, especially work out. But I have a wedding this summer where I'll see a lot of people I haven't seen in a while and I'd like to look nice.
So I committed. And I made my husband commit too, if he was still soundly sleeping while I'm working out I'd come up with a reason to join him. We started waking up early and easing into this workout thing with Pilates. I love 10 Minute Pilates. There are 5 workouts and depending on how much time you have you can do 1 or 5 sets. It's awesome. Especially the stretching.
After a few weeks we bumped up the routine to Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. This is a great 20 minute workout. There are 3 levels depening on how fit you are, you get strength, cardio and ab work. You're sore for days. That's how I typically measure good workouts.
"If you want a good workout, why don't you just use Beach Body?" Yes, I know about Beach Body. I'm very familiar. I've done P90x, 21 Day Fix, Shakeology but quite frankly, I got burnt out. It was a big committment and I wasn't there yet. I hope to get there but I need to work my way into it.
What about you? What's your go-to workout?
