Happy Tuesday! This morning I opened my planner, and couldn’t help but notice that today is December 18th. Is it just me, or do the days seem to be flying by. I mean, Christmas is in ONE week, Joshua & I’s four-year wedding anniversary is in NINE days, and January is in TWO weeks! Seriously, is any one else wondering where the year has gone??!!!
With Christmas Day getting closer, you may be finding it harder to make it to the gym. It’s completely understandable. Your schedule is packed with baking, looking at Christmas lights, and of course just enjoying the holiday with your loved ones. With that being said, I want you to know that there are other alternatives outside of the gym to squeeze in some exercise. It’s as simple as taking a walk, playing football in the backyard, and of course at home workout circuits.
I’ll be honest, when I first started exercising, I thought the only way to break a good sweat was in the gym (#freEdom). Boy was I wrong. As I started reading blogs, I quickly noticed that “Hey, there are workouts I can do in the comfort of my own home”. I soon started cutting back hours on the treadmill, and busting out a new circuit that I may have seen that day or the day before. && you know what, I’ve grown to love them, especially on days where I’m feeling less then stellar.
So, am I telling you to forget about the gym, HECK NO! What I’m telling you is that you basically have NO excuse on why you can’t squeeze in a quick workout over the holidays. If you have time to sit down and watch TV, you have time to break a sweat. I’ve listed a few awesome workouts below that I’ve always found effective. Enjoy =)
