I love the rush of endorphins.
I like my clothes fitting properly.
I like to eat like a pig.
The main reason I work out is mainly so I don't have to monitor my food intake as much.
I still have to watch my portions and make sure I'm getting enough protein, but I can splurge some if I'm working out!
I work out at home with DVD's because -
1. Gym's with childcare cost waaaaaaaaaaaay more than a DVD
2. Getting my booty to the gym....unloading the children...timing it with 2 schools, and 2 naps.....reloading children....getting back home....is entirely too exhausting of an evolution for this woman.
3. I can squeeze in a HARD 45 minute workout, 5 minute shower, 10 minute make-myself-presentable...and be ready for the day - in ONE HOUR.
Lest I paint myself in a more favorable picture than is true - I have worked out only 1 time per week for the month of October. Over the Spring/Summer I was working out 3-5 times a week, but it took me awhile to figure out the groove for our schedule with the new school routine. AND once I had it figured out...My Love went away for 3 1/2 weeks.
I wanted to give the world an accurate picture of my workouts....
the Beans are exceptionally helpful.
Boy Bean loves to climb over my back when I do planks
They all love to crawl through my legs when I'm doing squats
Sometimes - Boy Bean will actually hang on to my waist while I'm holding a plie....which makes it ridiculously hard, but I don't stop him - because I figure it must be helping somehow! :)
There is a sneak peak into the workouts at this house.....what do yours look like??
