Strong Is Sexy

As I was sitting at home digesting an extremely filling lunch and catching up on my blog reading, I came across this post from Heather Eats Almond Butter. In it, she mentions a four-week nutrition/exercise routine that can be completed in the comfort of one’s own home. PERFECT for me since I wasn’t really up for going to the gym, but wanted some sort of workout. Also, I’m trying to vary my exercise routine in order to tone up a little before the end of summer.

So I went to the Strong Is Sexy website, which led me to the Fat Fighter workout. Eesh – it looks intimidating!

In my mind, I already committed to trying this so there was no turning back. I mean, it’s only 12 minutes of completing as many reps as you can in the allotted intervals. I’m sure my form wasn’t fantastic and I ended up adjusting some of the moves because I was nervous about jumping up and possibly hitting my head. I also have to admit that I had a difficult time keeping track of the time intervals (I don’t have a second timer and was using the stopwatch on my phone.) However, it did provide me with a decent workout – I did about as much as I could – challenging both my muscles and my endurance level while making me sweat. (Truth: I enjoy workouts so much more when I sweat a lot.)

I don’t know if workouts are going to become a constant part of my exercise routine, but at least now I know of one place that can provide me with workouts on those lazy winter days where I don’t feel like trekking to the gym. Hooray!

Do you like sweating it out during your workouts?¬†For me, there’s just something so satisfying about bring sweaty. Maybe it’s to prove that I actually did some work and pushed myself. Maybe it’s because I imagine the toxins leaving my body. Maybe I’m just crazy :P
