It’s always tough getting back into the routine when you’ve been thrown off your schedule for a while and this was definitely the case for me this morning.
I’m trying to get back into the habit of waking up at 5a.m. to workout and while I have been doing that, this morning I was just NOT feeling it. After bouncing out of bed and getting dressed at 5:15 a.m. I went and sat on the couch for a second, just to rest my eyes for a second… and woke up over an hour later totally discombobulated.
Needless to say I did not workout, but rather had to rush to get ready.
What better way to get the week started?
I needed to make some modifications to this advanced workout and it kicked my butt, however, it gave me just the pick-me-up I needed.
Here is what the HIIT workout ended up breaking down as (my arms are like jelly as I type this though)…
(Modified) Look Better Naked Workout from Bodyrock.tv
(12 minutes of 12 rounds of 10-50 second intervals)
Repeat 3 times:
- 3 Point Surfer Jumps
- Push-Up & Cross Kick
- Reverse Push-Up & Side Knee Crunch
- Plank Spider Knee & Press Up
(3 rounds of 10-50 second intervals)
- Oblique Plank Drop & Knee to Elbow Touch (Left Side)
- Oblique Plank Drop & Knee to Elbow Touch (Right Side)
- Overhead Abs, Press & Twist with Sandbag
Hopefully I’ll get back into things now that I have a pretty quiet week. I am going to try and get up early for my workout tomorrow though, since the best way to get back into my routine is to just keep trying.
I just think of Finding Nemo’sDori singing “Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming.”
It’s my motivational motto.
How do you get back to your routine?
