180 Program – BURST Day 2

So fun!

I love rolling out of bed, throwing on some indoor work out clothing, propping up my Ipad on the arm of the couch, and working out on the carpet in the living room!

Don’t get me wrong, I’m basically, or I was a gym rat.

Deciding on my work out the night before. Swim, Bike, Run or weights.  Laying out what ever gear I needed. Well, I still do that! lol

Then getting up, and actually getting OUT of bed, to head to gym. I loved it, when I did it. Not so helpful when I thought, oh gosh, look at the clock. I don’t have time to get a work out in before work!

I love doing my BURST work out at home!

OK, so today I timed my work out. The reason for this? Self talk.

I want to tell myself, that I can spend xx of minutes taking care of my health!  That is is quck, effective, and I can get my  exercise in before I’m even awake!

If you are like me, your life is full, lots going on, and it feels like there is never enough time, yes?

My BURST work out today took approximately 19 minutes.  That’s warm up, work out and cool down.

Warm up was 6 minutes.

Work out took 9 minutes.

Cool off was 3 minutes.

Love that I didn’t have to do any planning around my work out! No schlepping of gear.

Was it really a work out?

Check out my heart rate for basically 9 minutes of exercise, and I burned 88 calories!

Then, a 180 smoothie with berries and off to my conference call!

    Great article. Coming to you from the UBC page. I have been working on knocking off pounds and have released about 40 lbs; no exercise thus far but I know I need to begin. You have inspired me to know that I can achieve results without alot of time! Thanks for sharing!

    I like short workouts that deliver a lot of punch too. These days, everyone lacks time, so one what is to push harder within a limited time period. Shaklee’s 180 workout is new to me, but it sounds like a lot of fun.

      Patrick, BURST is a lot of fun, and so quick. You are right about the challenges of carving out exercise time. The other part that is important to me, is the 180 drop pounds plan that is part of this program. 🙂 Thanks for your comment.
