5 more reasons to love 10 minute workouts

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

1. They can potentially be done in any clothes

During winter I just hate changing into & out of workout clothes. Short workouts can be done in almost any clothes -- i've done them in dresses & jeans & pjs.

2. They don't feel hard

Well, they might feel a little hard, but they're over so quickly that . . .

3. They often don't cause you to break a sweat

Which is why you can do them in any clothing. But they can get you sweaty, depending on what you're doing. Even if you're not getting sweaty you are burning calories.

4. They can give you a lot of variety

How often do you get yoga, ST & cardio done in one day? Much easier to get it all in when it's only 10 minutes at a time.

5. They get results

You don't feel like you're doing much, but all those little sessions add up.

And I'm enjoying my 10 minute sessions right now. But could somebody tell me where my mojo has gone? Is it just mr? The gray NE days?

I just don't want to cook. At all. Really struggling with that this week & Trader Joes is beginning to grow on me (especially for DH). I keep making meal plans that involve cooking but when it comes down to it I end up rearranging things so I don't have to.

Not expecting a spectacular week since TOM is again AWOL - again putting it as a contender in my next HM - and i've relied far too much on packaged foods this week. Today I've made sure to mostly rely on whole foods (where does tofu fall? Frozen sweet potato fries? Into the gray area between packaged & whole foods, I guess).

I've done 2 10 minute leg workouts so far; gotta work those arms. And should pick up a rake which will work everything but might just put that off til tomorrow. But I've got more errands to run tomorrow.

I still don't see how you working people do it!

And because I've been feeling kind of cursed lately, here are a few thingsi'm grateful for:

My SP buddies
My WW leader & group
My health
My legs which carry me miles & miles
Trader Joes spinach & butternut squash au gratin
Dark chocolate
1 healthy cat & 1 healthy dog
My quiet house
My tea
