30 Minute At Home Workout

I have a secret to share.

Sometimes I just don’t feel like working out.

That may surprise some of you, but us fitness obsessed peeps are human too.  And there are days that the world just doesn’t seem to agree with us, we feel like sitting on the couch, and we play that mental game with ourselves about just getting up and moving.

Monday was definitely one of those days for me.  I was absolutely exhausted all day, I worked late, and I ran a couple of errands that I have put off for a while immediately after work.  For the sole reason that I seriously couldn’t stand looking at the bags sitting by my desk anymore.  That was probably the issue, because by the time I got home it was already dark, and I couldn’t go for a run.  I know myself and if I don’t work out first thing in the morning or immediately after work, my chances of exercising decrease significantly.  It took a LOT of willpower on Monday after those errands to put on some workout clothes and bust out an at home workout around 8:30pm, but I did it. And afterwards I was glad I did.

Sure it wasn’t what I had planned, but that was okay.  I still worked up a sweat, I let out some stress, and it was better than doing nothing.  Worth it.  In fact, I think it was actually a workout worth sharing.  I know many of you are looking for more at home and no equipment workouts, so here you go!

You can play with this to make it work for you.  If you want a 20 minute workout, you could skip the second strength round.  Or you could decrease the times or pick your moves.  Maybe you want only cardio or only strength.  Up to you!  Any questions about what any of the exercises mean, just let me know.  Happy to explain further if need be.

What advice do you have for days you just don’t feel like working out?

I actually wrote a post back in the day to share some of my own tips!  You can check it out here.

  1. The days I have to force myself to move are usually the days I do yoga, and abs. It’s my standard I-feel-like-poop-and-dont-want-to-do-this workout. It’s mellow and keeps me from doing absolutely nothing that day.
