Have fun exercising? No way.....?

Thursday, March 22, 2012

All week I have been trying to decide what to do as far as my workout plans go--I usually use my rowing machine everyday but that gets to be sooo boring! I was dreading doing it because it seemed like it took forever to burn the calories I was aiming for. So I was looking into what kind of things I think I would enjoy as far as exercise goes and came up with buying an exercise bike or an elliptical thingy...the only problem is that we have NO money ( really it is true--absolute zero at the end of the month after food and bills), so that was out of the question. So what do...?

I looked up some of the exercise videos that Sparkpeople had on the fitness page and tried out the 10 minute jump rope workout with Coach Nicole. I really enjoyed it and it was a great workout in only 10 minutes! So I looked up some more vids and also did the 10 minute kick boxing workout--I loved it! And after all it was a lot of fun and cheap and it satisfied my fitness goals for the day :)

So thank you Coach Nicole and Sparkpeople--you help me out so much !

    It's great isn't it - everything that you need is here! I think that the 10 minute workouts are great for time management and also fantastic when its ugly weather outside and walks are out of the question in particular.

    I saw your update by the way - Well done on your two pound weight loss!! It does move eventually!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I'm with ya - no money. So, I do the SP 10 minutes videos in addition to walking or bike riding. They are great workouts and easy to follow!

    Great job!

    I just added back the 10 min Kettle bell to my elliptical thingy, and couldn't believe how much more of a workout I got. So I know what you mean. I don't think they have any kettle bell on the 10 min workouts on here, but you can type in and see. You can use a regular small dumbbell if you don't have a kettle bell btw.
