Work With What You’ve Got

I spent most of one afternoon this week waiting on the cable company to install my Internet at the new apartment, so I had lots of time at home! I spent a good majority of that time unpacking and organizing, but a girl can only do so much of that before needing a break!

I put on Big Bang Theory (anyone else LOVE that show?) and started scrolling through Pinterest on my phone looking for an upper body/cardio workout I could do at home. I found a few that I liked and merged some of them together. It took me just about 30 min to complete this workout, but I definitely worked to kept my pace up! I was a hot sweaty mess by the end!

How do you make time for your workout?

Do you ever workout at home? Or do you always workout at home?

Today I scheduled time to run in my planner! My planner=my life bible.
