Friday Fit Tip

Short on time? Try this...

5 jumping jacks
8 push ups
8 crunches
8 squats
rest for 2-3 minutes...
8 squats
8 crunches
8 push ups
and end with 10 jumping jacks

Of course you can add more or do less until you can at least do 12 of each.

On the hunt for something new

I'm always on the lookout for different workouts. Currently, because I don't have a lot of time these days, I am doing the 10 minute trainer series. I started with one 10 minute workout a day, Monday through Friday. I have since moved up to 2 workouts a day. My goal of course is to get 3 workouts done a day. It is becoming a little easier squeezing in workout time. I miss going to the gym. But my home workouts are just fine.
Today I stumbled across a 12 day workout called Fat X. Hmmmm....to try or not to try, that is the question. Maybe. But of course, I would like to make my goal of 3 10 minute workouts first. More on that Fat X program when I really have time to read about it on their website.

J-E-L-L-O

Thats exactly what my arms and legs feel like right now. But I wouldn't have it any other way. LOL.
Tonight I decided to NOT just do one 10 minute trainer workout. I decided to NOT do just 2. I decided to do 3. Yes 3. 3. I'm still shaking my head. I did the total body, the cardio total body, and the abs wokouts. I've really been wanting to challenge myself and start (and complete) p90x before the summer, so I figured that why not prepare myself by stacking my 10 minute trainer workouts. We'll see how my body reacts when I wake up in the morning.
I have been eating A LOT better since the year started. I did however slip today and stuffed my face with those oh so yummy golden oreos. Hmmmm maybe it was my subconscience telling me to do 3 workouts instead of 2.

So I've never really got into the whole yoga thing. I just figured it was another fad like tae-bo. But boy am I a believer now. I just did a whole hour of yoga x (part of the p90x program) and all I can say is wow. I feel sooo good. And super relaxed. Yoga will definitely be added to my weekly workout regimine (is that how you spell it lol?)
Anyways...the one thing killing me right now is motivation. More like the lack of it. My schedule has been so crazy the past couple months that it has been a challenge getting a workout in. The best time for me is at night with stanky in bed and juju watching a movie in his room. So around 8pm at night. I go to work every morning and all day all I can think about is working out when I get home. Well that is until this past week. Hopefully with adding yoga, I can be excited again.

So...I've been toying around with what I'm actually going to call this blog. I like what it is now (Working Out in High Heels) because that is soooo me. I have found a love for working out and I am always...ALWAYS...in a pair of heels. ALWAYS.
2010 is MY year. I think nearly everyone says that come January 1st. But for me its especially true. This is the year I enter my 30s. Yup 30. WOW. 30. Obviously we all turn 30, but I'm really just not ready for it.
So pardon the absence on this blog as I try to make it more "ME."
