Not slacking off

I ended up having a snow day from work today, but instead of sitting around watching bad television, I made the best of it!


I ended up cleaning my entire apartment, did the laundry and dishes. I even packed my lunch for tomorrow, this afternoon!

I also did 20 minutes of yoga (Gentle Hatha #1 program) which was nice now that I finally cleaned out my second bedroom and have the space to do it more comfortably than in my living room 🙂

Then later in the evening, I did a strength training program!

I did 2 sets of each exercise. Everything was 15 reps per set, except for the calf raises and abs which were 25 each. For the moves requiring weights, I used my 5 lb dumbbells.

Whew! That looks like a lot and I definitely worked up a sweat, but it still didn’t seem to bad. Except for those plank push ups, I definitely need to practice those.

Hopefully I’ll be able to get back to work tomorrow and get to the gym at some point. But if not, I’ll have to improvise at home again. Should be interesting, either way 😉

How do you stay motivated when you have to work out at home?

  1. oh man plank ups are INSANE!

    I try to remind myself of my goals and that is usually all the motivation I need! When I’m stuck at home, I do a Jillian Michael’s video.

  2. I printed off your set list. I have done some yoga this morning, and will do this tonight! Thanks. enjoy the snow.
