Where do we go from here

With the holidays are being over there was nothing left to do but let the REGRETS begin. Like “why did I eat so much”. This year I thought I had it all planned out. I hit the gym with some serious cardio 3 days a week for the two week before the holiday break. I did Zumba on speed (the class was super-fast) and yoga Monday and Wednesday and a minimum of 30 minutes of cardio on Tuesday. At the time it was the perfect plan. Counteract all the food I was going to eat by getting rid of what food I had already eaten at the gym. How could this go wrong? Simple, by “trying” every food offered during the holiday season. I mean you don’t want to be rude, right? So now all that’s left is regret and clothes that are a little “snug” to say the least. All I can do is sit and reflect on healthier days. When I ate proper portion and the gym was like Cheers, everyone knew my name.

I didn’t let these regrets get me down for long. When all the only clothes you’re comfortable in are leggings and a large t-shirt, it’s time for CHANGE. So I spent a good portion of my day researching various workout plans and exercises to do that didn’t require a gym. Not that I don’t like going to the gym, but during the month of January they are always overcrowded with new-comers and I prefer not to engage in the madness.

There was no reason to reinvent the wheel when it came to finding some really great workouts and workout programs/schedules. I took my time to look at what was already out there and figure out how I could customize it to something that worked best for me and my lifestyle. Unlike going to the gym, there is more flexibility when working out at home. A great advantage is you don’t have to do your workout all in one session. I am able to do some in the morning before work and knock out the rest when I get home in the evening. here is what I have been doing:
