As of January 20, I have worked out fifteen days this month. Not all of my workout are hour-long hardcore workouts, but my goal is to be active and move my body for at least fifteen minutes and continue to build on each workout. I am happy with my numbers so far. One of my goals is getting back to an active lifestyle. Before I get immersed in a routine, it is so easy for me to get knocked off the wagon. It is so easy to be lazy, and when I am really down I let any little thing derail me. Not this month!
Over the last week or so, Tennessee has had two different rounds of snow and ice. Since I moved out to the country two weeks ago, getting snow and ice means that I don’t get to leave the house.
However, I knew that I could not fall back off the workout wagon. I was determined to still be active even though I couldn’t get to the gym. I found a kickboxing workout on Amazon Prime and did some at home dance videos. I was able to still hit my workout target of five days a week. Go me! The picture below shows just how little room I have to workout. I still got it done! No excuses for me this week. It was critical for me to keep building the active habits from earlier this month.
Saturday morning, I was able to get back to the gym and did 50 minutes of dance blast. I ended up sweating my ass off and burning 824 calories. It felt great getting back to the gym and having a change from the home workouts. Plus I liked having the music blasting as I dance around with strangers. It’s just not the same at home.
My stats so far this month. Burn baby burn!
