I'll be completely honest here. I haven't worked out in months. I mean, I've done Tae Kwon Do twice a week just about every week (testing for my green belt soon!) which is a great workout, but other than that, my butt has only seen the gym once probably in the last 6 months. And I did 30 Day Shred ONCE too. Other than than, just the TKD twice a week. I just HATE the gym. I hate it. The thing that sucks is, if I don't have anyone pushing me to go, I don't. I just don't. I can't push myself. Before when I worked normal people hours Husband and I would go together, or I'd meet my BFF on the way home from work. Now, it's all up to me. Plus since getting Lily it's made it hard. Girlfriend has so much energy and I hate putting her in her crate more than she has to. If I go to the gym for an hour she goes in her crate. Then I come home and let her out while I get ready for work and she goes right back in.
Anyhooters, there is a point to my post... My BFF sent me this workout challenge. It goes like this:
It’s a 4 week work out plan. If you have “On demand”. Go to “Freezone”, then “Health & Wellness”. Try each work out each day. They’re shorter work outs but you feel like you get a good work out. The category is under the name of the work out. So you’ll go to the catergory, then the work out name. Some days they’ll have to u do 2 videos, but they work outs are usually only like 20-40 mins each at the most.
As you can see this will only work if you have Cox On Demand. Here's the schedule for the first week:
Day 1 - Less Is More Cardio - Less is more in this 30 minute calorie burning workout. Cindy takes you through a dynamic cardio series that benefits the entire body. From pushups, to core, to marching, to jump steps you’ll efficiently work and tone each body part
Day 2 - Fat Burn &
Quick Trouble Zones
Category: 2 Weeks,New You & Jillian Michaels - his is fat burning at its best. Cindy’s sequence alternates between easy-to-follow cardio intervals to up calorie burn, and weight training moves to help increase lean muscle mass. You’ll shrink fat during the workout, and keep your metabolism firing 24/7, thanks to Cindy’s full body resistance training and basic plyometric moves. Light to medium hand weights are required.

Target your obliques (sides), rectus abdominus (center), transverse (lower) abs, plus all the tiny, supporting muscles with this 20 minute belly zapper.

Day 7 - Rest
Whew. Wish me luck. I hope I can and will stick to this. Summer is coming. I have to keep telling myself that. Summer is coming. Summer is coming. Summer is coming..
**UPDATE*** I just got done with the "Less Is More Cardio" and holy moly! That was hardcore! I couldn't even finish the 30 minute workout. I did finish 20 minutes of it and still feel like i got a pretty decent workout. If you have Cox cable I definitley recommend this.
