Squeeze in a Workout

Thank you all for wishing my mom a happy birthday! She said it was the best one yet.

mom's birthday

had to help her celebrate with a cup of Birthday Cake Remix from Coldstone. 😉

It took a lot of will power not to ask for added cookie dough in the mix. I wish I was kidding.

Thank goodness I like to exercise. Last night, I was feeling lazy from all the rain when I stumbled upon this article in Glamour for a quick ~12 minute workout.

The breakdown- do each exercise for 60 seconds and repeat:

  • Squats
  • Side lunges
  • Tricep push ups
  • Plank ups
  • Mountain climbers
  • Ice skaters

After I finished the combination, I wanted to go for another 10 minutes, so I intermittently did jumping jacks, runs in place, high knees, high kicks, side punches, and literally ran around the house. I call this the ADD workout. Just jump around. If you need a new workout, try it wherever you are.

What’s your favorite 20 minute or less workout?

Have an awesome weekend!

    I love these quick workouts. I’ve found a few on fit sugar that are HITT and make you feel like you have really worked hard. Happy Birthday to your Mom 😀 I wish I had some of that Coldstone. There is one down the road…I may have to stop there today. Yum!!
