And I've come up with some clever excuses to get out of High Intensity Interval Training or Weights. Sometime they are elaborate, other times I just say I don't wanna.
So...here the plan for Week 1 of my 44th year...
Tuesday...Pilates; Masters Swim Practice
Thursday...Pilates, Swim on my own
Saturday...Frost Bite 5K (instead of a t-shirt, you actually get a 'hat, glove and scarf set'. Hopefully it's not horrific.
(*already blew the "PLAN", didn't do the weights)
What's on your workout agenda for the week?
If you already work out, set a goal to add at least 10 minutes of weights in twice this week. Don't have dumb bells? I bet you have a gallon of milk (about 7 lbs) or a child (anywhere from 8-40) that you could do some bicep curls with!!
If you don't work out, challenge yourself to MOVE for 5-10 minutes at least a 3 times this week, and do that bicep curl thing with a gallon of milk, a jar of peanut butter, or your cat.
Best part...after any kinds of weight training, you should eat some protein Best real world quick source? CHOCOLATE MILK!!!
