I am losing my lap. I think I only have a week or so left!
Sorry, Maggie. Sorry, Henry. This baby bump is taking over!
How’s your Tuesday shaping up? I am super tired – not going to lie. One night’s sleep can make or break me. A tossin’ and turnin’ night left me feeling plenty broken. Here’s to hoping that I perk up soon…
Tea (<— that should help)
Three eggs with corn and spinach
So – I have something new and fun to share! I’ve written a few times that I’m really trying to integrate more strength training in my routine. I’ve been good about doing it once a week at the gym, but that’s not enough. The urge to nest is in full force lately, and while I was cleaning out a closet, I found two 15 pound weights and two 3 pound weights – perfect for some at-home strength training!
I knew the ONLY WAY that I’d stay dedicated to doing moves regularly is if I put the weights on my couch – right in front of the TV. My friend Gina suggested this list of moves, which are perfect for completing in front of the old boob tube:
And I’ve brought back the Blank Training Plan (which I really love because of it’s flexibility) to ensure that I actually do the moves four times a week – I’ll be sure to update soon on my progress!
And speaking of great ideas from friends, my buddy Julie suggested that I look into the Fitness Bender YouTube channel, which has a ton of awesome at-home workouts. She said that I could just play it on my laptop or phone and mute it so I could still hear my TV. Win, win.
Do you work out in front of the TV?
No way! The gym is where I do my workouts (or the pool, or the road for running/biking). I’m no good at multitasking – I either can’t focus on the workout, so I know I’m not doing it as I should, or I’m not focusing on the show, which makes me enjoy it less. I tried having Netflix on during my bike trainer workouts this winter, and found I had to stick with music, or Trainer Road (computer program for the bike). I’d rather do one at a time, but good on you for getting the workout in when/where you can.
