In case you were taking working out too seriously.

Sometimes we take exercise and working out way too seriously. And by “we,” I mean me. It’s not suppose to be serious, it’s suppose to be fun and enjoyable… most of the time. So, in case you were taking exercise a little too seriously lately, or you just need a good Tuesday morning laugh…

In completely non-related news, I spent way too much time on Pinterest yesterday when I should have been doing work 😉 I got in an excellent treadmill workout yesterday morning that left me super sweaty and definitely warmed up for a leg strength circuit. 

10 minutes walking @ 10% incline.
1 mile run @ 8:34 (not at incline).

That’s it. Super simple, but great if you don’t want to go for a boring treadmill run. It kept it interesting! I never use my hands to rest on the sides or on the front when I am walking on a treadmill because it really destroys your form. If you can’t stay on the treadmill and feel forced to use the supportive railing, take it down a notch either incline or speed. It SHOULD feel like you are hiking up a mountain. Your legs are probably going to be burning;) After I did 30 minutes of legs, I headed to the pool for a 2000m swim. I used flippers for the first time and it was super fun! I will post more about those later this week! 

Remember: exercise should be fun, so don’t take it too seriously.

  1. Those pictures really made me burst at the seams. Just the thing I needed after a not-so-good day. I can totally relate with the last one, though. I must not skip leg day! Hahaha! Anyway, your simple routine looks great and I hope you keep it up. Sometimes, the best plans are the simplest of plans and the effectivity of your journey to better health. Thank you for sharing everything! Wishing you the best of health!

  2. Great advice! We start doing all of this (running, spin, etc) because we really enjoy it, and we should never lose sight of that. “If you’re not having fun, you’re doing something wrong”
