Get To It Circuit Workout.

TODAYS WORKOUT-
My Get-To-It Circuit Workout.
Pre-baby days I felt like I could be an early riser and really didn't mind getting up somewhat early to workout. But now that I have a little one I cherish every moment I get of sleep (even though my baby is one). So call me a slacker but I just don't have the motivation to get up before the he wakes and exercise.  Instead I opt to exercise during his first nap time- I need something that is somewhat short but still intense enough to make me feel like I got a great workout and something that I can do in my family room--- this workout was perfect!
I saw a similar workout on 'Peanut Butter Fingers' and altered it just a bit to make it my own. It took me 28:15 so it was  just about a 30 minute heart pumping workout. Perfect for the workout-during-babies-nap-time.  Long enough to get my heart racing and for my muscles to feel the burn but short enough for me to be able to shower and get a few other things done before my mischievousness little one year old wakes! By the third set, especially during the burpees, I was dying. Give it a try!
This would be great paired with a 20 minutes of cardio as well!!

Bodyweight workout.

Todays Workout:
Body Weight Timed Strength Workout 
Lately I have been into doing Quick high intensity workouts. Thanks to Pinterest I have been able to find great workouts that get my heart pumping.  This workout comes from Lindsay at 'In Sweetness and in Healthy'. It is also great because you need nothing more than your body weight and a timer to do it {so it would be a great workout to do when traveling and don't have access to a gym.  I finished it in 26 minutes even. I didn't rest really at all in between exercises and really only about 15-20 seconds in between reps.  It was an awesome workout and I was definitely sweating!
