I have two pet peeves that stand out. One, if I see ‘your welcome’, ‘your so nice’, ANY mention of where it should be you’re, you’ve lost me. Sorry.
Second is when you ask someone you haven’t seen in a while how’s it going?!?!…the response is something like, “Oh my gosh I’ve just been so busy!!! Work work work meeting meeting—that’s when I tune out.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m sure you live a very important life. I’m sure you are busy. Guess what? You’re not alone. I don’t feel the need to ever say I’m busy because my schedule is a choice, i love what I do, so being ‘busy’ doesn’t come up in my vocabulary. I know other people have their own things going on.
Which is why there is never an excuse to not work out unless you are too busy to take care of you.
I won’t lie, it can be challenge. But when you are at your busiest, that’s when I find working out is most essential.
So as promised, here’s my super basic 25 minute workout I do when all I have is, well, less than 30 minutes. All you need are weights (I use 10 lbs). You may want to look up some of the terms!
5 min – sprint around downtown
5 min – legs; wall sit, jump-squats, kettlebell woodchop (works abs too), jump rope, ballet releves
5 min – arms; push-ups, bicep curls, hammer curls, tricep kickback, WVs
5 min – core series; plank, crunches, double crunches, scissor kicks, bicycle crunches
5 min – Dance; hip-hop, ballet (pick your favorite music and jam without shame.)
It’s enough to get your blood flowing and you feel the benefits mentally to energize you for the morning.
Since this is about food, here’s what I’ve been makin lately. Pretty basic!
Avocado & sea salt
Egg, greens, olive oil, homegrown tomatoes, parmesan, sea salt
