Today was sort of a “day off,” if you don’t count the time I spent at work. It was a pretty decent day, overall. I woke up with Templeton breathing on my face, which always makes me smile :) He’s a little furball that I can’t help but love. Once I was actually out of bed, I relaxed, had breakfast, and drank some coffee. Nothing better than starting the day with cats, some morning news, and good coffee.
Following breakfast, I decided to bake something that would fill my home with the warm smell of the season. So I made up a recipe for spiced vanilla bars. I’ll share that recipe soon.
I also had time to enjoy a great at-home workout. So rather than spending this post sharing the recipe, I’ll dedicate it to my latest workout routine. If you decide to do a similar routine, be sure to modify it for your individual body strengths and weaknesses. Everyone has a different capability and differences with the strength of their muscles.
5 Sets of the following:
10 ab cycles
30 second plank (I had a cat on my back, as well. Oh Charlotte)
10 goblet squats (I used a 12 pound sandbell)
20 arm punches (I used 4 pound weights in each hand)
10 jumping jacks
Then I usually dance it out for about 30 seconds in-between each set
5 sets of the following:
10 overhead tricep extensions (I used the 12 pound sandbell again)
10 sandbag side bends (10 each side) (With the 12 pound sandbell)
50 jump ropes
2 sets of the following:
20 torso rotations holding a balance ball
20 spell casters (using 4 pound weights in each hand)
I also was listening to dance music throughout this workout, so I was bee-bopping around and enjoying the music. So however you find your fitness throughout these cold winter months, keep it fun. Until next time, happy exercising!
