Monday Motivation Workout (Day 2 Challenge)

Well frig, I hit publish on my “Meal Planning” post last night instead of schedule post. Then I thought I needed to draft another post to go up Monday and hit publish again! Sorry for anyone who got a random “post notification”…..Whoops!

Since it’s officially Day 2 of the Fall into Fitness Challenge, I wanted to share this workout with you.

I did a series of “Motivation Monday” posts when I first started blogging in 2011/2012 and haven’t picked it up again. I thought I would start off Day 2 of the challenge with a workout.

Sometimes I just don’t have time to workout, especially when my husband is away. On those days when he is away I crave running….like REALLY crave a good l-o-n-g run. I want to run as far and as long as I can…then stop, turn around and run back home. I’m sure some day I’ll get that motivation when he is actually home and can hang out with the girls.

This is what I did yesterday (Day 1 of the challenge):

  • Thigh challenge – 30 Day Thigh Challenge by Jodi Higgs (5 minutes)
  • 10 Minute Power Walk with Maclean
  • This Bob Harper Work Out x 3 and then easy stretching:

First off – working out on your kids play mats is better than a yoga mat.

Second, lunges and my thigh challenge from earlier in the day – bad idea.

Third – I’m terrible at push up’s from my feet and I go on my knees!

Fourth – my hear rate was pumpin’ after the BHworkout.

What’s your favourite go-to workout when you just DON’T WANT TO WORKOUT?

What motivates you on a Monday to work out ?
