I have done a lot of workout videos throughout the years. Some too challenging so I would quit before I started. Others not challenging enough because the results were non-existent. So I decided I had to share this video when I found it because it is the perfect workout for a busy mom; it’s only thirty minutes and it produces results.
I’ve been doing it three or four days a week for the past three months. Within the first two weeks, I felt strong, energized and excited. Three months in, my arms and shoulders are more defined, which I never thought made a difference. But here’s why it does. When you build up your upper body, it helps to balance out the rest of you. It gives you a more hourglass shape.
So you may be thinking, I don’t have time to do a thirty minute workout. Well as a mom of three little kids, who also works full-time, I’ve realized the importance of making it a priority and if you do that, you will find the time.
For me, I do it as soon as I get home from work. I will say hi to the kids and head straight upstairs to get it in before dinner. My family knows I am a better mom and wife if I get those precious thirty minutes to workout.
Through trial and error, I realized that if I waited until the kids went to bed, I wouldn’t workout. It was too hard, and I was exhausted. But if I did it right after work, I could muster up enough energy to start. And once I started, there was no turning back!
I felt guilty at first because I don’t get to spend a lot of time with the kids during the week. But I found that if I didn’t spend the thirty minutes to workout, I was more irritable and grumpy. On the other hand, if I worked out, I felt better, I had more patience and in turn I become more happy and present while I played with my kids. So at the end of the day, it’s a win win!
Here is the link to the video…it’s so worth it!
