Ugh! I absolutely love Halloween, but it’s BAD NEWS for a gal like me with a killer sweet tooth. The office decided to have a candy bowl this morning, and I’ve had at least 15 fun size Snickers, Twix, M&Ms, and Laffy Taffys. Ugggghh… talk about sugar high!
But not to fret! I worked out HARD to compensate!
8 min abs from yogadownload.com twice (16 min)
Level 3 of Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred
Level 2 of above DVD.
As I’ve said before, Jillian makes me sweat and work like none other. This particular DVD is my FAVORITE at-home exercise DVD. The three 20-minute sections can be done one at a time, or in combination with one another for a fat burning routine. I find that mentally, 20 minutes is easy to handle. So even if I do 2 levels together, each one is only twenty minutes, so it’s easy to motivate myself to do it.
I find that if my workouts are broken down into discreet segments, it’s less daunting. And when it’s less daunting, it’s easier for my brain to be like, “yeah! I can handle this! 20 min? Piece of cake!” So my workout today was broken down into 3 20-minutes-ish segments with a couple minutes of rest in between. This works for me.
So now I think I’m gonna go have some more candy…. ! haha, I’m totally NOT kidding! I mean, it IS Halloween! 🙂
Question: What tactics do YOU use to make your workouts less daunting?
