Why I like at home work outs…..

So as many of you may have noticed, I haven’t been too consistent with posting workouts.

To be honest, I haven’t really been writing my own workouts, I’ve been doing online workouts from home. They are just as effective, and much more conducive to my current life style. Between work, school, and being exhausted from work and school, all I want to do is be at home.

I’m lazy.

I don’t want to take a bus ride or shuttle to the gym, I don’t want to be stuck in traffic or in the rain, I don’t want to haul my big ass duffle bag with EVERYTHING-I-OWN-IN-IT, and I sure as hell don’t want to be tapping my foot waiting for the asshole in the squat rack to finish curling and texting.

Working out at home is juuuuuust fine with me. In fact, I’m more than okay with it.

I’m actually going to invest in some equipment! I have a few resistance bands and a pilates ball, but I want to get a 25lb kettle bell and thicker mats for my wood floors. I’ve even been playing around with the idea of a T-Grip bar.

As much as I do love at home workouts, I also miss the tight muscle mass and strength from weight training. So I’ve decided that I will start training with weights at the gym 2 days a week. I’ll divide these days into simple Upper Body and Lower Body days with a little bit of ab work and cardio thrown in the mix.

Today will be my first day back at the gym in 2 weeks! I’m taking the Microsoft shuttle to Downtown Bellevue despite the rain and traffic. I packed a much lighter gym bag and I have my workout written and my mind mentally prepared. All I have to do until then is keep myself awake, energized, and motivated! If I wanna look like Lara Croft by next Friday I better hit the squat rack and work on these gams! Thankfully I have a body that builds and retains muscle very well, so a couple days in the gym lifting weights WILL make a difference.

Sometimes change is needed to rekindle a passion that was and is always there. Sometimes you really just need a break from even the things that are good for you. Absence makes the heart grow fonder right?

Anyways, I hope you all try this workout and tell me how bad your legs hurt. Hopefully you can walk by Halloween!
