Me and my bunny sorry I could not resist sharing :)
I do have a confession to make: I did consume a little bit of Halloween candy. I am not perfect and I never claimed to be but I feel I had to confess. I had 4 fun size bars last night and 2 small tootsie rolls today. I normally would have eaten a lot more in past years so I know I did well. I sent out the rest of the candy last night with my sister so there will be no more slip ups :) I am trying not to beat myself up too much about it I did get in 2 strong workouts this weekend.
That brings me to my next thought the main one for this post. There are no excuses I will accept for myself when it comes to skipping a workout and you should not accept any either. I was having a pretty crappy day just over tired, and cranky. I thought I would come home and just relax but I knew deep down inside it would not help me feel better. Well when I came home the baby was sleeping! I knew I had to make the most of the quiet time so I went to On Demand and cued up Jillian Michaels Boost Your Metabolism. It is a cardio based kick boxing inspired rock your body kind of workout!
After that I cued up my latest favorite Shred It With Weights and did it with my 15 lb kettle bell. I love that workout so much! I just love how it combines cardio and strength training and really works my core. When I was done I must admit I did not burn my normal 700 calories but I will take this:
You know why? Because it is 300 more calories I have burned and it is 47 more minutes of cardio than I expected to get in today. I did not want to workout but I did not accept defeat, I persevered and this is how you get results. Even if you do not have time to get to the gym, or get outside, you can get in a workout. And it was totally free there is hundreds of free exercise videos just waiting for you to cue them up on your cable box!
So no excuses this week! :)
