Healthy Living - Workout

Pinned Image

Choose a workout that works for you.  
If you choose a workout based on anything else, you will not stick with it.

Last summer I was determined to run a 5k, even though I despise running.  I started the Couch to 5k plan and got halfway through it and stopped.  It wasn't working for me.  I hated running.  Maybe one day this will change, but for now, running is not my workout of choice.

I've decided I really like strength training mixed with cardio.  I feel like with strength training my results appear quicker and I can see a significant change in strength within just a week or two.

I also tried Zumba last year and really liked that for a great cardio workout.  Right now my life is too crazy to get to a class on a regular basis.  I can definitely see myself doing that workout again.

I primarily use Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred and just alternate between the workouts.

This works great for me right now because the workout is only 25 minutes.  
Very easy to slip into my morning and check it off the list!

I recently got this workout


This workout is a bit longer and focuses on a lot of endurance and core training.  
I really like this workout as well.

Caleb recently joined a gym and he an bring me as a guest whenever I want to go, so I might start incorporating free weights and elliptical training over the next few months.

It is the end of January - this is the perfect time to make a commitment, lay out a plan, find an accountability partner and get moving!  The longer you wait, the longer getting in shape will take.

What is your workout of choice?

  1. The best way to burn abdominal fat is; instead of focusing so much on abdominal exercises, focus on a full body systemized workout that will increase your overall metabolic rate and as a result dramatically stimulate your bodys hormonal response to burning fat.
