Afternoon Pick-Me-Up

so i find myself usually wanting a coffee or tea sometime after lunch, early or later in the afternoon. i usually indulge this feeling. but today, a rare afternoon at home, i did the 10 minute Melt It Off workout instead. wow!! better than coffee. and i can't believe i'm saying that, really. i'm drinking an emergen-C post-workout instead. i highly recommend this kind of pick-me-up.

Ticket To a Great Day

yes, that's the ticket to a great day - start with some exercise, then a healthy breakfast, a la the Melt it Off menu... and then you're off and running with a bounty of energy to propell you thru the day no matter what comes your way.

Doing Something for Me

you know, the whole day just goes better when I make time for ME and exercise first thing. mitch gets it right when he talks about doing the melt it off program - or whatever you choose - being SO important - that we're doing something for ourselves which is paramount - because then we can take it into the rest of our days and lives iwth greater energy and purpose.

Morning Workout

i just didn't make time for the workout today, and now i can't wait till morning to get my muscles moving and my heart rate accelerated. i think i'll do fortius again for sure. it's just been one of those exhausting days with way too many obligations and not enough hours in the day. every time i look at the clock, its an hour later. to bed. can't wait for the morning workout with mitch!

Fortius = Favorite

fortius - the accelerated sculpt and firm - strength workout is my favorite. the citius workout still just kills me!! fortius is a fantastic workout, that you can modify to the silver or bronze level as you're working up to gold. i really like how it focuses on each area one chunk at a time. legs. arms etc. some of those lunges where you're handing the ball through yoru legs and around your torso are TRICKY!! :)
