Mixing Up Your Workout: Tips & Tricks

I’ve talked a lot recently about eating healthy and watching my sugar intake, so today I want to talk a little about working out and staying fit. As a mommy with a full-time job, I will start by saying it is hard to find time to work out during the week. But, as I have mentioned before, my husband and I are working hard to carve out time to exercise and support each other. I can’t say enough great things about my hubby – there have been several times in the past month he’s offered to entertain the girls so I can go for a quick bike ride or do a workout online.

Speaking of online workouts, have you been using Pinterest to find ideas for exercising? I have and I am thrilled with the quantity and quality of the workouts I’ve found there. For example, I’ve recently been doing this crazy workout I call “The Hundreds.” All you need is 20 minutes and some good tunes to keep you pumped up. I always try to throw on my Tummy Tuck Belt before I workout too! For “The Hundreds” workout you do the following: 100 jumping jacks, 90 crunches, 80 squats, 70 leg lifts, 60 more jumping jacks, 50 crunches, 40 squats, 30 leg lifts, 20 more jumping jacks and run for 10 minutes. Crazy, right? I didn’t say it was easy and I definitely struggled with it for the first two weeks, but I can say that I feel better and I think I can tell a difference!
