Back on the Grind…

24 Sep

Well, it finally happened.  My alarm quacked at 5am (it really is set to quack), and I worked out.  Now, let’s be honest.  I haven’t exercised in weeks, about five or six to be exact; I’m a little rusty.  But, I’m feeling much better than I was, and starting is the hardest part.  I didn’t go crazy, but I did work up a little sweat and breathing was hard.  The circuit I did took less than ten minutes, but here’s what I decided.  Since it’s been so long since I’ve worked out, anything is better than nothing.  And even though it was short, I really did FEEL it.  So here you go:

50 Jumping Jacks

25 Crunches

10 Tricep Dips

15 Squats

10 Lunges (each leg)

25 Russian Twists

20 Standing Calf Raises

10 Push-ups

30 second Plank

50 Jumping Jacks

If you’re feeling adventurous, or if you’ve been working out consistently and want more of a challenge, double or triple this circuit.  But trust me, you’ll feel it after one round.  I’m easing my way back into the game.  Stay tuned for Weigh In Wednesday to see where I’m starting over from.  I’m still going to attempt my 33 by 33 challenge, but I know I’m at a slight disadvantage right now.  No crazy diets or anything like that, but I’d like to get as close to that goal as possible.

Have a great week everyone.  And remember, it’s never too late to start!
