Easy Sunday Workout

Happy Sunday! I’ve been busy with preparations for Thanksgiving so I haven’t posted in a couple days. Can’t wait to try some recipes!

I don’t usually work out on Sundays but I figured since I’ll probably be shoving my face with some less than healthy food and drink later this week I would force myself to. I started off wanting to do some easy cardio on the elliptical and throw in some intervals. Once I got going and got my heart pumping, it got me in the mood to do a legit workout. I’m glad I decided to force myself because now I feel great! This is what ended up doing:

Warm up and stretching
10 mins elliptical
1 min burpees
1 min jumping jacks
1 min mountain climbers
1 min ice skaters
1 minute squat jumps
10 mins elliptical
25 crunches in exercise ball
25 chest press with dumbbells
25 more crunches on ball
25 push ups
25 more crunches

Turned into a nice little Sunday! Moral of the story- just push yourself to work out even if you don’t feel like it. I convinced myself by telling myself I was going to do something easy then I got into the mood once I got going. You’re not going to regret it afterward…. You’ll regret it if don’t!

Question: I’d love to hear your opinion on cheat/skip days. How many days a week do you rest? Do you have a cheat day or just cheat meals? I am currently struggling with this and trying to get better.

    I can never come to terms with taking a day off from working out, BUT a cheat day of working out for me consists of only going for a 4-5 mile run. No weights or additional cardio. Some days I will go extremely hard, but others it’s just my morning run and then nothing after work or on my lunch break.

      That’s some cheat day….I’m not much of a runner. I’ll stick with one workout a day that usually includes some cardio then strength training. A 4-5 mile run would not be a cheat day for me…so kudos!
