Move It Monday + Lower Body Circuit


I’ve always heard people say that they diet 5 days a week, and while this is a pretty poor plan, I get it. Monday through Friday always seem infinitely easier than the weekend. For me, it’s all about routine. If I am in a groove and ticking along, it’s seems easier to make better decisions. However, take me out of my normal, and it can easily become a free for all. Look out Golden Corral! Yowza. 😉

Now it’s time to get a few quality workouts in, and get my meals aboard the lean and green train!

Did you complete your workouts this week? If not, what got in the way?

Answer to yourself, or on this page, and then ask yourself how you could have made it work in hindsight. Did you plan your meals so they were easy to prepare after work? Did you get enough sleep and feel energized, ready to workout? Knowing your answers, do you need to re-prioritize a few things to be sure that the most important things (your health) are ranked highest? 🙂
