my mini workout challenge

Hello friends,

I hope everyone is enjoying their November so far and getting ready for the holidays! I can’t believe there almost here and a new year is just around the corner. This has been one of the most exciting, life- changing and happiest years of my life. A year ago I could not have dreamed that this is how my life would be right now, but I am so glad it is. It is funny how different God’s plan for you can be from your own.

Joseph is three months old now and still is not a big sleeper. He is all about cat naps. The past couple of weeks he has been even worse at not sleeping at night. The doctor advised us to wait to start feeding him cereal until he was 4 months. I think when we start doing that he will sleep longer. Fingers crossed!

Having said that, it has been hard to get a full workout in during the day before he wakes up and needs my undivided attention. Okay, maybe he is a little spoiled..

This problem has led me to do a little experiment this month and December. I am doing three mini workouts in a day as 0pposed to one longer one. I want to know if it will have the same effect on my body. So far it has worked out great for my schedule. I have been doing two 15 minute workouts and one 20- 30 min workout that involve weights.

When researching this I found that it has had a positive effect on most people. Doing several mini workouts a day keeps your metabolism elevated throughout the day. Also, each workout you do is shorter so you are more likely to keep the intensity up throughout the whole workout each time since you know it won’t last long.

I took my measurements at the beginning of this month and will take them again at the end of December to see if there was any change.

I made myself a calendar for November that tells me what workouts I will be doing each day.

This was such a great opportunity to try some workouts by some of my favorite YouTube guru’s. I will post links to the YouTube channels I got my workouts as well.
