Ladies....I really enjoy working out, but sometimes my favorite TV show is on when I am ready to workout. Since I wanted to kill two birds with one stone, I googled and found this fantastic workout called the "5-4-3-2-1 At-Home Circuit Workout found here: http://www.fitsugar.com/Easy-15-Minute-Workout-21588220. This is a 15 minute workout, but don't let the small amount of time fool you that it will be easy. It kicked my butt! As many of you know I love challenges and I thought, hey this will be a breeze. It got my heart pounding and breathing heavy right in the beginning of the workout.

Here is the workout...it is broken down into 5 minutes, 4 minutes, 3 minutes...etc. Again from www.fitsugar.com

I have already done this workout over 4x's. I love it! It is pretty intense....I have even added doing downward dog push ups during the 3 minute interval...I did 10 regular pushups,15 tricep dips, then 15 downward dog push ups then repeat. The workout is a challenge, but it feels so good when you finish. And remember it is only for 15 minutes...so it won't take long. :)

This workout is also great if your on vacation, since you don't need anything but yourself!

Today's challenge: do some kind of exercise. Even while watching your favorite TV show of course! Works for me....haha.

Talk to you soon!
