Happy Thanksgiving! Today I have a Squats for Pie workout for you to squeeze in around your Thanksgiving prep. It's only 12 minutes, you won't regret making the time.
This is a 12 minute bodyweight AMRAP workout of:
5 sets of 3 pushups and 4 jump lunges
10 knees to feet
10 sets of 5 sumo pulses and a jump squat
No excuses, you don't need any weights or any extra equipment, just you and 12 minutes. Get it done and get back to your food prep and pie-eating :)
I made it through 3 rounds and all 5 reps of the pushups and jump lunges. This was intense but fun and over so quick. 12 minutes is all you need to get a good workout in and not waste lots of time. Get to it, get it done, and then it's over with.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving I'll briefly share some things I'm thankful for. I am thankful for my health, to have a roof over my head, food to eat, clothes to wear, my family, friends, my delightfully strange cat Cinders, and perhaps most of all I'm thankful for my boyfriend's love. He is a truly remarkable man who inspires me every day to be my best self, what could be better than that? I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving with loved ones. Don't eat too much pie, and don't skip your workouts; even just doing a 5 minute one if that's all the time you can spare is better than nothing. I have a bunch for you to choose from, no excuses, you can let the turkey cook unsupervised for 5 minutes and get it done. Stay on the wagon now and you'll feel less like overdoing it at these holiday meals. Plus there's always such an abundance of leftovers there's no reason to have enormous servings now when you can have smaller servings and continue to enjoy for many days to come. The holidays don't have to equal lost progress! Stick with me and I'll show you how easy it is to stay accountable and consistently make healthy choices.
