Out enjoying the day

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Just wanted to touch base and make some kind of a post. I'm not real happy with myself since I haven't been to the gym in 4 days. But I'm on my way tomorrow. I've been going past the point of making it a habit and I can really tell in the way I feel if I don't go. I've wanted to go but the price of gas has literally kept me at home.

  I'm sorry to hear you're in a situation where you have to choose between gas and gym. But I will say that the area around you looks beautiful, and the weather looks fantastic! I much prefer doing stuff outside than hitting the gym anyhow. I think you can get a great workout just by doing some brisk walking and busting out some squats and pushups, if you can't make it to the gym. If you wanna sweat using nothing but bodyweight, try this: 10 squats, 10 push-ups, 10 crunches. Bust 'em out fast, one after the other, with no rest in between. Repeat 10 times, no rest. Your heart rate will definitely be up by the end!

    I'm getting my exercise by walking around the neighborhood. That way I don't have to drive anywhere. I'm also enjoying the weather this way. Is this a possibility for you? Then you don't have to worry about gas money.

Also, I have decided that my workouts are 5 times a week. I allow myself 2 days off a week and not feel guilty about it. Make sure you do give yourself a little leeway so that you don't expect perfection.

    Love the woods in the background. Don't worry about not getting to the gym, do what you can at home.. Have a great day.
